Bad Veep Coices

FOR JOHN MCCAIN

Bobby Jindal: Good political stances, but not enough experience.

Mike Huckabee: Too much in love with the nanny state. And let me ask once again: what does the former governor of a failed Southern state bring to the table?

Joe Lieberman: Dead, dead wrong on judicial appointments.

Tom Ridge: One-trick pony - his claim to fame is homeland security, where McCain is already strong (immigration policy notwithstanding).

FOR BARACK OBAMA

Joe Biden: Republicans will have a field day with the slimeball who deliberately misrepresented Clarence Thomas' views on Supreme Court activism during the confirmation hearings. Obama has his own Clarence Thomas controversy; I would think that he wouldn't want to give Republicans extra reasons to bring up that name. Also, Biden has said a lot of things that conflict Obama's campaign themes.

Hillary Rodham Clinton: Two immensely polarizing names on one ticket is a bad idea. Obama/Clinton would be like the GOP running Hannity/Coulter - in PR and not policy terms (obviously).

John Kerry: Even Kerry opposes the idea.

WHO I WOULD PICK IF I WERE THESE GUYS

Republican nomination: Sarah Palin, who gets strong endorsements from NRO readers.

Democratic nomination: Elizabeth Edwards.
