Default McCain picks Sarah Palin as VP

IMO, Charlie Crist would be a superb choice. Like McCain, he's a moderate Republican and has had high approval ratings while serving as governor of Florida, and his inclusion would almost certainly mean Florida's 25 electoral votes would be red ones. The only real problem is, like McCain himself, Crist might not be "right" enough for the neo-cons. If McCain wants to pull in social conservatives, Huckabee would be an excellent choice (though he's probably too fiscally liberal for the right-wing's hardliners). I doubt McCain would like Steve King of Iowa, but he'd probably be the best choice in terms of pleasing the conservative voters that McCain himself risks alienating.

Soooo.....?

The other problem with Crist is that he's sexually attracted to men.

That would come out the day after he was picked.

He needs Huckabee.

Huckabee on the ticket would convert the entire mountain west region into swing states.

That's pretty absurd. The social conservatives that don't trust McCain love Huckabee. Him being on the ticket wouldn't be a horrid move on McCain's part, but regardless he wouldn't be the best choice for McCain due to his fiscal policies being fairly liberal, which makes the neo-cons none too excited about Huckabee.

The thing about Huckabee is that for whatever portion of social conservatives he brings along, McCain will likely lose the same in moderate independents.

Except Mormons. If there's anyone more anti-mormon than McCain's mother, it's Huckabee. And like it or not, that's your conservative base in the Mountain West. Every mormon republican I've talked to will vote Democratic. If Huck's on the ticket in November.

I'm no McCain fan and I'm certainly no Bush fan, but don't buy into the propaganda that they're at all "the same."

Also, I'm not sure you should be in this conversation if you can't speak English.

Sam Brownback is another option for McCain...though I think he's a bit too much of a McCain clone for the neo-cons.

His last name is Jindal. The Republican party is filled with racists, bigots and rednecks. Jindal on the ticket would probably hurt McCain.

And I'm sure that those same said racists, bigots and rednecks would rather have a white guy as president than some liberal nigger, dude.

I'm sure the social conservatives would love Jindal. He's 100% pro-life, anti-embryonic stem cell research, and I think he's anti-gay marriage.

So it basically contradicts McCain's "maverick" stance which would excite much of the GOP, but lose many independent and even some moderate Republican voters. He would scare the crap out of those people.

So in other words, McCain should all but completely abandon the core of his party in favor of a few independents and swing voters, at least half of whom will probably wind up voting for Obama?

If McCain is going to win this election, he needs at least most of the social conservatives and the neo-cons on board. That's why he needs a VP that is a bit more hawkish than he is. I'm not saying it's going to be easy for him. Teeter too far right and he'll appear to be little more than a Bush redux. Teeter too far to center and he risks alienating the core of his potential voter base. He's an established moderate. That should be enough to scare up some independents and swing voters. A guy like Jindal would give him a boost at least among social conservatives that currently don't trust McCain. Remember, the social conservatives re-elected Bush in 2004.

Like it or not, McCain needs at least part of the social and far-right on board for his campaign to be a success. And he can't appeal to them alone.
