Who Will Be The Veep Candidate?

One internet wag has it down to a science.

PROS AND CONS OF JOHN KERRY’S TOP TWENTY VICE-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

But don’t count on his choice for #7 position:

7. Paul Tsongas, former Senator, Massachusetts
  • Pro: Fiscal conservative, appeal could cross party lines
  • Con: From same state as Kerry, died in 1997

Otherwise, though, Tsongas is a great veep candidate.

I didn't like Tsongas much, so being dead would be a plus for him in my book.

Personally, I'd love for Bill Clinton to be VP. It'd be good for the nation, good for the world, and it'd even make the conservative radio talk show hosts happy because it's much easier and more fun to tear Bill apart for vapid reasons than it is to defend a bad administration's failing policies.

Yes - that would make everyone happy.

I liked Tsongas and voted for him. Being dead is a disqualifier, however.

Loved 4 (Clinton) and 19 (Fourteen dogs from Ohio).

Re: the Clinton blurb, it sounds like Matt/Yvonrant.

"Oh man, that would be awesomeŚcould you imagine? He'd be all like Yeah, I'm back, so suck on this, y'all and everyone would be all No way and he'd be all Way."

While one should never punch a dragon in the junk, one may of course punch a smarmy Republican in the junk.
