    Unfortunately, I think you're correct. I'd really like to see Lieberman as the VP candidate for his policies and views across the board from national defense through abortion and civil liberties, but I think the age thing is a deal breaker.

    I know it's a surface assessment, but most people don't go very deep when they vote.

    Somehow voting for a 72 year old man with a Dem in line to succeed him is more than I could take.

    He won't cross party lines for a VP choice, but I can see Lieberman in the cabinet in some capacity.

    I agree, I really don't think McCain is going to pick Lieberman.

    With this big mess about Zer-0 and the Illinois Infant Born Alive Act, I think McCain will definitely pick a pro-life running mate. Abortion is not my litmus test but it is for many.

    Why? Why is it such a hot button issue?

    Other countries don't understand this about America, at all. I assume it's because of our "religious" background, and the "social conservatives" are the ones for whom it's a hot button issue. Any time the American people are polled about their most compelling voting issues, abortion is never higher than fifth or sixth. Most of us don't give it a lot of attention. It's legal, it's likely to stay that way, and it's not something the President can do much about (except possibly through Supreme Court appointments, and I think that's a long shot in any case).

    We can come to different conclusions in our beliefs.

    Because a lot of us feel it's murder. Has nothing to do with my religious beliefs. I think we've cheapened life. The inner city kid who's seen his sister have three abortions, decides he want's somebody else's sneakers. Why not just pop a cap in his ass and take them. :(
