Ed at Nonplussed (Warning — Left Coaster!) posts on yet another McCain-for-Vice-President idea. As is typical in these scenarios, McCain figures to be the guy that swings a lot of moderates in the direction of his running mate and even manages to steal a few votes from the other side.
Except in this scenario McCain runs with Bush, not Kerry.
I’ve written before about the possibility of a change in VP’s for Bush, though I thought at the time that Colin Powell might be a good choice. I considered Powell to be a longshot at the time, and I think that’s even more the case now. I also haven’t been buying the Rudy Guliani VP talk, though I do think he’d be a great fit as Secretary of Homeland Defense.
The McCain-for-VP idea is a longshot for either candidate, I think. But I’d be all for him as a running mate for Bush. We’ll see.
