who will jmac pick?

so all last week we heard rumors that john mccain would be announcing his choice for vice presidential running mate very soon and my thought was that it was just that — a rumor — necessary to try to blunt all of the buzz obambi was getting on his magical media tour.  but according to this report, jmac has his short list shortened to 6 potentials and they are:

  • Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty;
  • Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell;
  • Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney;
  • Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin;
  • U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn; and
  • Former Pennsylvania governor Tom Ridge.

and of course i have some thoughts!  

boo on lieberman and ridge — nice but not conservative. 

boo on powell — though i have always admired him, i think he has played a disloyal game of politics since leaving the white house even to the point of allowing rumors to spread that he might be obambi’s running mate.  i don’t like that.

palin and pawlenty — both have merit.  they would definately jazz up jmac’s anemic campaign – palin more so i think.  i wouldn’t MIND them but i am not thoroughly convinced that they are conservative enough for me.  but i don’t count, mccain does.  i do prefer palin over pawlenty.

romney — i couldn’t hardly stand during the primary but i think he earned my respect as time went on.  i also think he’s smart and not afraid to come out swinging as demonstrated a few times on the stump for mccain.  i also would trust him to be president if something happened to mccain while in office.  i can’t say that about any of the others sadly.

all i know is that mccain needs to hit a homerun with his choice and i don’t know at this point in the game who realistically that would or could be so i think palin.  newt says no more boring white guys.  maybe he is right.  my preferred candidate and running mate aren’t in the mix but since it’s the weekend, i’m going there:

jeb bush/rick santorum!


wistful sigh.  humor me people.
