    Courtesy of MSNBC is the VP selection system, where you and a bunch of other people who have no clue who will be McCain's and Obama's running mates take a stab at it through a bracket system! Fun right? Let's do it! :D

    McCain Round 4 is up.
    Obama round 2 is up.

    You put quotes in the link. That's why it won't work.

    I'm game though.

    She is actually popular and would not hand over an easy victory to Obama. A lot of people seem to think that, but they forget that she can defend herself.

    Rice would be a good choice in any other year.... but with the Democrats pushing the McCain=Bush narrative so hard, I think that Rice would only exacerbate that.

    Palin from Alaska is my long-shot bet. Pawlenty is my more orthodox bet.

    I wouldn't be able to vote for McCain without a hard look at his VP.

    What a lousy attempt at getting people interested in the GOP and McCain.

    Cheney is awesome. I don't understand why some people gotta be haters. This guy is a top fat-cat. A bossman among cowboys. He's so badass, for vacation he hunts attorneys.

    I want a no-bid on a new space station /deathstar (not international) and ewoks (GM labor). Now that's my idea of a winning presidential platform. Deathstar and ewoks ftw. Fk change and hope - anyone who believes that crap is a sucker. Does change have huge lasers and fly in outer space? Is hope tangibly fuzzy?

    I'm not feelin Bobby Jindal. He's *very very* young, which would kind of highlight McCain's oldness. Plus, you can't exactly attack Obama/X for not having "experience" when your VP has barely been gov.

    Certainly he's a rising star in the GOP, but I'd want to see what he could do running a state that badly needs some good leadership.
