    Considering that Lieberman as a potential veep is coming from everywhere BUT the McCain campaign as a serious possibility and his campaign stated yesterday that they would NOT entertain a pro choice veep all this crap is hyperbole.

    I got somewhat of a feeling McCain's VP pick will be someone totally off the radar. Someone that's known in small circles but with the bonifides that once people are aware of them they'll be pleasantly surprised.

    IE: Recall his answer to the question about three people he would rely on for counsel & advise .
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Thanks. You answered my question. Another American talking about people, places, and things he knows nothing about.

    Sorry, know it all. Been to Europe. Watched people stand in lines. They're just more complacent. Most of Great Britain tolerates shitty food and lousy utilities just because they don't know any better. Was born in Canada. visiited regularly until just recently. Watched all them tolerate high taxes and shitty healthcare. Didn't even become a U.S citizen until 1985. Play again?

    Sure, how long did you live in Europe? Did that experience include both Western and Eastern Europe?

    What do you know about the heallthcare in France? Have you ever had to make use, yourself, of European health care or is your "knowledge" second-hand?

    Since your measure of socialization seems to be a capability to wait in line, ever stood in a DMV line in the US? Or, alternatively, ever been to Saudi where, according to your criteria, they aren't socialized because they sure don't have any concept of lines. Ever tried to get a ticket at a Saudia counter? With your standard of measure, you sure wouldn't consider them socialized!

    I can play this all day.

    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)
