  1. #1 McCain May Tap Alaska Governor For VP Spot. 
    McCain VP Search Heads to Alaska

    A tipster tells Wizbang's Kevin Aylward that Arthur Culvahouse -- who is heading up McCain's vice presidential search team -- is in Alaska:

    ...There's only one reason he would be there - to meet with Alaska Governor Sarah Palin about the Vice President position.

    This comes on the heels of McCain's Memorial Day weekend barbecue attended by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, former White House budget director Rob Portman, and Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman. Supposedly that was in informal affair, not a vetting session, but it appears that the VP selection game is very much afoot.


    We were on the Palin bandwagon early, and Fred Barnes profiled Palin nearly a year ago. In many ways, Palin is an ideal choice: a governor, a woman, a conservative, a Christian, a budget-cutting fiscal hawk known for opposition to pork-barrel projects. And even as Alaska governor who favors drilling in ANWR, she is known for standing up to 'Big Oil.'

    Would McCain really make such an unorthodox selection? And does the fact that Governor Palin merits a clandestine visit, rather than an invitation to McCain's VP cattle call indicate that she is a more serious candidate than the others, or is it simply because Palin gave birth just over a month ago?
    He must not know that she's an actual conservative. :eek:

    Better than Lieberman or Graham. Governor Sanford would be a great idea too.

    She has a lot of great qualities but I am concerned about her five children including a new baby with Down Syndrome.

    Plenty of room at Number One Observatory Circle for them all. ;)

    Agreed. Being a Gov. in a relatively off the radar State is one thing, Vice President is a whole other kettle of fish. I couldn't imagine putting small kids through that with how nasty politics, blogs and the media have gotten.

    “…In the Obama candidacy, there is a potentially history-making quality that we should reflect on. It is one that is especially relevant on the sensitive topic of race — because South Carolina and the South as a whole bear a heavier historical burden than the rest of our country on that front,”

    far too sensible.

    You fucking tards are the ones that make an issue of race. Conservatives have no issue voting for a black Republican so long as he is not preaching entitlement culture or kill whitey.

    They already think if he loses, it will be because of racism, not because he's an empty suit. There has probably never been a weaker candidate put forth than Obama.

    I think he's just looking at her as a courtesy, and it is partly because she's a woman. A lady on the ticket could attract disgruntled Hillary Clinton voters if Obama gets the nod.

    If Hillary is somehow nominated, it would be for balance. But not the AK governor - she's already got a full plate and AK is a little state in EVs.
