I’m not seeing the upside of adding Romney to the ticket.
Me neither. It would be an uninspired and uninspiring choice.
Wouldn’t trust him to pick up the phone.
I sussed them out recently here.
You were right about O’Biden, but have to disagree with your call on Romney. My money is on Carly Fiorina. Why?
1. She’s already a chairman of in the RNC
2. She’s meets with McCain almost on a daily basis to talk strategy
3. She would scoop up a lot of angry Hillary voters
4. She had the benefit of being kicked out of HP in a coup organized by jealous underlings, which conveniently feeds on the revenge fantasies of Hillary supports frustrated at being kept under the glass ceiling yet again by a “male patriarchal organization.”
5. BTW, anyone notice that HP suddenly turned around immediately after she left, suggesting that the changes she wrought actually worked (like acquiring Compaq to fight against Dell) but Mark Hurd simply got all the credit?
6. By picking Fiorina, McCain demonstrates in a very loud and clear voice that he is indeed the Original Maverick (TM).
7. Fiorina is pro-life, which should shut up Rush and gang.
8. Picking her as VP would scream, “It’s the economy, stupid!”
9. In other words, McCain+Fiorina = National Security + Economy = Unbeatable Combination
10. It would be a head-fake of an order not seen since the invasion of Normandy.
And finally, here’s one final reason why Romney won’t be it….
McCain is announcing his veep the day after Obama’s DNC speech in a move designed to counter the expected Democratic momentum. Picking Romney or Lieberman or any other male candidate will merit a one line mention in the news.
Now imagine if McCain announces Fiorina. Suddenly, Team McCain will have ALL the media’s attention. The DNC will be ancient history overnight.
That’s sounds like a McCain zinger to me…..
