    Its obvious now that palin is dragging McCain down. She started out like a house on fire,but once the curtain was pulled back voters pulled back away from her.
    So righties who would you have chosed instead? Me I would have offered it to Hagel. But I'm an ind.

    You know, I think she's just had a bit of deer in the headlights syndrome this past month. What with the Katie Couric thing -- I still cannot believe how cold and harsh Couric was; creepy -- and her subsequently being parodied by Tina Fey and all, she never had this happen to her before. She's been a bit rattled and thrown off her game, but I think she'll recover. If people will give her a chance, if Couric smiled and fawned over Palin the way she did for Obam-uh-h and JoeO'Biden, Sarah would be looking a lot better.

    Oh, well. What doesn't kill you just makes you stronger.

    well Palin was an awful choice.

    I'd say Ron Paul without a doubt. I think McCain would have locked it up as a true maverick. He should have voted against the Bailout which would have secured a big base.

    He made alot of mistakes. He blew his chance.

    Nietchie, any who I watched the Couric interview and I thought Couric almost felt sorry for her. Couric was watching this women implode and many times i thought she was trying to coax the correct answers out of palin. But like I always say cold and harsh are in the eye of the beholder. ;)

    Romney.

    America isn't looking for ideology. At this point in time, the vast majority is starving for competence.

    Romney would have been a nightmare for the Democrats, quality-wise. Where the Dems are winning is not on "likability" or ""who is most like us". It is on mere competency issues. McCain's erratic "Maverick" behavior and Palin's obvious incompetence scared off the Independent vote.

    In that same vein, this would have been the year for Michael Bloomberg to run on an Independent ticket. He just didn't have the guts to make the leap.

    I thought if McCin chose Romney,Romney would have been shredded by the DNC. over his Conversion from moderrate to hard rt conservative. Mitt is a very transparent Ken Doll.

    Romney was my choice, my second was Bobby Gindal. I liked Palin, though, and wish the media made a point of Obama's inexperience the way they are with Palin.

    In 1979, you could have replaced the name Reagan for Romney in your post.

    I repeat, Romney would have been a VERY big nightmare for the Democrats. Romney was by far the most Reaganesque of the candidates. Many in this country still love Ronald Reagan.

    Romney would have been able to articulate the problems with Obama. McCain can't or won't and Palin isn't taken seriously enough to do so. Obama can be attacked, legitimately, in so many ways but it's not getting done.

    Well we've argued about this before but "give back" is a tough argument. "Give", OK, but I think the lower classes live better now than ever before; however expectations have been raised.
