Default If Hillary is VP candidate, would it sway your vote?

I would change my vote from Obama to Libertarian.:miff:

I personally don't think bill did a bad job. I would not however vote for Obama if Hillary is the chosen VP. Otherwise, I'm still not sure who I'd vote for. I like Mccain and Obama

No.

But then, Obama could choose Fidel Castro's brother as his running mate and it wouldn't affect my vote.

No, it would not make me less likely to support McCain.

If I were Obama, I'd be too nervous to make her my VP. I'd fear that I'd be dead within the first year.

After watching this hillary speech today, I can only smile and be happy that this witch isn't going to have a shot at being president. Its so nice to see her talk about all the socialist ideas she has inside, and I can know she won't be president.

I won't vote for Obama, hillary i might have, The two together? They will have a lot of convincing to do.


McCain is Old. The only benefit i see with voting for Obama is all the people are going to think his Unicorn farts are going to make the world a better place, and probably build up Consumer Confidence and the Economy may make a rebound. But McCain probably has a more realistic approach, I'm typically a Democrat, but i don't think i'll be one this election.

Now that he has the official nod do you think they will start calling him bi-racial or half black? They really played up the fact he was by caling him "black" all this time but now that he needs votes from a broader range will they now down play it? Poor Jesse Jackson and fucking Sharpton will have nothing else to bitch about if he gets in so I'm sure they will not support him.

Obama's voting record in his very short term in office + his state record are from my impressions from reading blogs, and editorials are in direct opposition to his accord building that got him the democratic nomination.


ofc, I haven't done any personal research - just reading the links from drudge which are obviously always the newsy type.

That is a big jump from all the way left to pretty far right. I hope you vote Libertarian either way.

Polls don't mean a whole lot and it is still very early, but still, I find this interesting.....

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epo.../michigan.html

McCain is leading in Michigan, I can't remember the last time Michigan voted for a Republican president. Thanks Jenny! It's so close right now that your vote might actually mean something this year, we could be the next hanging chat, make every vote count, state that decides the election.

and then there is this.....

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epo...obama-225.html

It's also interesting to me that, historically, Democrats lead in the polls early on an then steadily lose 10-15 points as time goes on. With the polls showing the race at almost dead even, if this election follows history, McCain has a very good shot at winning. Then again everyone expects Obama to get a boost this week now that Hillary is gone. How big will the boost be and how long can he hold it?

More to read....
