The Story that Would Not Die

By Steven Taylor @ 9:08 am

Look, I’m just no buying it (I buy that DC is abuzz-kinda-but the whole Kerry-McCain thing? Please.): Kerry-McCain alliance the talk of Washington

Washington is abuzz with rumors that John McCain, one of the most popular Republicans in Congress, could team up with Democratic contender John Kerry in the race for the White House.


McCain has repeatedly denied interest, but top Democrats refuse to let the rumour die. Senator Hillary Clinton (news - web sites) fueled speculation by saying Sunday she would have no problem supporting the maverick Arizona senator.

“I’m a big admirer of John McCain’s,” Clinton said.

So, if he had been nominated in 2000 by the GOP, Hillary would have been thrilled? No, of course not, she would have attacked him in his run for the White House as she supported Gore, and rightfully so. This is simply ridiculous. She only would suport McCain as veep because she thinks it would damage Bush, not because she holds McCain’s views all that dear.

Further, as good as this sounds now, I repeat that McCain’s war hero bona fides would overshadow Kerry’s, Kerry would have to seriously deal with the whole “war criminal” bit if McCain were his runing mate, and McCain would have to endlessly explain why he, Mr. Straight Talk, so went back on his word.

  1. I think this is going to backfire on the Democrats. McCain is NOT going to accept the VP nomination. However, with all this talk the actual VP nominee will have to suffer with the reaction of “well, he/she is a good choice, but not as good as McCain.” That is the hole they dug, and let them continue to dig.

    It does tell you what the dems are thinking. The know there is no way Kerry is going to split the republicans, and thus the base is solid behind the president.

    Putting Mccain on the ticket is the best shot they have to peeling off a big chunk of republican votes. Without something like that, theres very little chance that Kerry can win this election.

  3. Wow. So Hillary is now pro-life. Great! I just wonder if she’s notified NOW about her new stance.

    In all seriousness, John McCain is starting to come across as a very disturbing and disturbed individual. He could be doing a lot more to quiet this nonsense. But it’s evident he loves the attention.

    I have two theories on why he’s acting this way. One is he plans to become Defense secretary regardless of which candidate wins. Either way he hurts the Republicans, because Arizona’s Democratic governor would be able to fill his Senate seat. The other theory is he plans to become the only viable option for the Republicans in 2008. If he runs then, and runs against Mrs. Clinton, I wonder how admiring she will be.
