Who Would You Pick as John McCain’s VP Running Mate?

NewsMax is hosting a poll to help John McCain choose a Vice Presidential running mate. Fellow Colorado blogger Steven Nielson (welcome back!) will be disappointed to learn that there is no way to vote for Sarah Palin.

I went with South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, but thought about choosing Mitt Romney – who I supported for almost 3 weeks until he dropped out less than 2 days after so many Colorado Republicans cast a vote for him in the February 5 straw-poll. The two former rivals campaigned together today in Utah.

Warning about the NewsMax poll: Participation automatically puts you on their email list, and the only way to find out the poll results is by waiting to receive an email. Fifteen minutes after I cast my vote, I’ve yet to hear anything. Maybe I’m not on their mailing list, after all.

    Hey Ben! Thanks for the link to the poll! Of the candidates posted I chose Condi Rice… Of course I doubt that Condi would be the best VP for electability reasons (too close to Bush to represent change)… but I liked Condi in 2004 when I was suggesting that Cheney step aside and Condi take the spot as VP. Would have been a bold move for Bush in 2004! Maybe her time has passed, though?!?

    Hillary would be a perfect running mate for McCain. That would out the two war candidates on one side and give us a choice.
