USA Vice Presidents

Will the new President's choice of Vice President be more important than who the President himself is? Clinton, McCain and Obama all seem to have limiting weaknesses of experience, truthfulness or age. Do they recognise that they need to choose Vice President to balance these weaknesses?

Leon_ is that a "?", I did'nt see a "?" mark at the end of you reply to me?
Looks like we finished the same grade!

If your talking about me spelling it right instead of write in my reply, well your write, I messed up, WOW!
I'm a 3rd grader on his way to Heaven!lol

Most of the people i've met that went to college don't have a lick of common sense,
what college did you say you went/go too?
surely I jest...
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 9/4/08

Duane: What grade are you in at school. :)
---Leon on 9/3/08

NRobert_Good Luck when you stand before my Father,
Dudley IS a child of his.

Let me say Bless you & may the peace of God be with you.
I forgive you, I hope he will,
there's a time coming though when he WON'T!
(I can FEEL your HATRED & God can see it)

Leon_MCCain made the better pick, I thought i made that clear by what i said, But like a Dem. you don't really care what i think or right, Do you?

My prayers are truly with you...

Ps. What you don't repent today YOU WILL give account for "it" then!
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 9/2/08

Dudley says: It's funny ...yada yada yada....

Dudley, you accuse the democrats of doing exactly what the republicans have been doing for years. The republicans invented pitbull politics.

Where is your outrage at McCain for his philandering? Or where is your concern for Pilan's alleged abuse of power against her ex-brother in law? Or the current president's role in the outing of Valarie Plame or the Attorney general scandal.
---NurseRobert on 9/2/08

Dudley spounted: A Sen. is a mouthpiece for it's constituents back home and tries to pass laws and earmark projects that cost taxpayers millions for bridges to NOWHERE!

Tell us, Dudley.... what does this say of McCain?
---NurseRobert on 9/2/08

"Was it McCain or Obama" Duane! :)
---Leon on 9/2/08

Duane: Who do you believe best chose a vice presidential running mate to balance his domestic & international weaknesses? Was it McCain or Obama?
Leon on 9/1/08

1st I would have to agree that J. MCCain has an international "weakness"(I Don't).
It's funny when people go after The spouse's & children of the Dems. everybody in an uproar & if it's about sex(Clinton, Edwards,J.Jackson,ECT)
"It's nobodies business"
BUT when a Repub's 17 yr daughter or ANYthing else "It's OH God LOOK"
(The only thing they can do WHEN YOU GOT NO IDEAS, ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK)
Hopefully America's done with going along to get along and WE start doing what's good for US(Drill,Elec., Wind,ect)!

Leon_A 1st term Governor has ALOT more exp. then a 1st term Senator W/18 months of EXP!
A Gov. runs a state.
A Sen. is a mouthpiece for it's constituents back home and tries to pass laws and earmark projects that cost taxpayers millions for bridges to NOWHERE!

What happened to the Man of Change?
Joe Biden has been their since Lincoln was!
---Duane_Dudley_Martin on 8/31/08

Sen. Obama's choice of Sen. Biden as his VP was a sound, forward thinking & balanced choice that will be good for the American people on many different levels once he's elected president. However, Sen. McCain's choice of Gov. Palin was likely made in an awkward, self-serving attempt only to win the presidency by woeing the women & Christian Right votes.

Sen. McCain's VP choice, unlike Sen. Obama's, won't bring cohesiveness & balance to the presidency on behalf of our nation. Gov. Palin & Sen. McCain's pairing is lopsided, not good for America, i.e., an inexperienced, novice (first-term) governor & an out of touch, 20th century, vested senator.
---Leon on 8/31/08

I doubt they give much consideration to their own personal failings,unless it's something they feel may have lost them votes For example, Obama will need someone with strong experience in foreign policy. If the candidate is from the east, they look for a potential VP from the west or south, hoping for more votes. Of course it must be somebody the candidate likes and has compatible viewpoints on policy etc.McCain's VP is especially important because of his age. I imagine it will someone young, but not as young as Obama.McCain is seen as stodgy by some, so he may be encouraged to choose a more dynamic personality.

History, in fact, shows that voters seldom change their opinion of a candidate based on his/her choice of VP.

Let's do get this nation as it sit's now on the Brink of falling into the Hands of Sympathizers Of The First Born , Sired by Abraham "Ishmael's Peoples , Let's cast Our Vote for an Old Timer that Knows what He is Doing, as far as Trying to Be a Christian like Nation and Be A Pleasure to Almighty God! This nation was Founded on Christian Principles, But The Devil's influence has taken Over! We see it Everyday, Right Before Our Eyes! Therefore a "Time of Change", has to come about to be a pleasure to Almighty God, But not the kind of Change that a certain Presidential candidate will Proclaim, "IF" Elected ! ! ! Sincerely concerned ! Gabby8758

A very interesting interview with Sen.Obama on Wolf Blitzer's program today. Very insightful I thought.
---NVBarbara on 5/8/08

Agree Lisa, Colin Powell would be a good choice. He's been asked to run for Pres. on a couple of occasions, but he turned them down flat.
---NVBarbara on 5/8/08

Who knows what these people really think. They probably think they ARE God. It is a shameful situation:) I don't think they think of balance but rather what will empower them more. They will want "yes men". Thoughts of bettering the country through balance is not on the agenda with Clinton or Obama and I do not know what is up with McCain.:)
---jody on 4/29/08

Oh, Alan . . . you listed "Clinton, McCain and Obama", so I asumed McCain is democrat (o: You in England know more than I do (o: oops

Yeah, I guess it is possible for a VP to be better than the one put in the presidency by a party. That can be good, perhaps, if it keeps the better person out of sight a little so he can get some things done without publicity interfering. I suspect really qualified people may stay away from high politics so they can accomplish something (o:

Bill ... "Alan, if the Democrats are producing three presidential candidates who are unfit to be President, how can these or others less than them be fit to be VP?"
It's quite possible ... there are those here who say that Cheyney is much more capable than Bush, and probably runs the country anyway.

But I don't know of three democratic hopefuls ... only Clinton and Obama. It seems to me that either would need a really solid experience VP
---alan_of_UK on 4/25/08

Alan, if the Democrats are producing three presidential candidates who are unfit to be President, how can these or others less than them be fit to be VP? Also, it sounds like the Clinton-Obama clashing could assure they donate the presidency to the they did, before, by promoting gay marriage. They could have won, then, could win easily, now, but they do themselves in. Are there undercover Republican operatives sabotaging the Democrats' strategy (o:
---Bill_bila5659 on 4/24/08

Having a "balance" between the USA President, and the USA Vice-President isn't that important. The jobs must be over-whelming. Two people are better than one for the leadership of the USA.

I believe that GOD is trying to get the USA to understand that our nation needs to turn back to HIM. What our nation needs even more than a "balance" between leader's "strengths" and "weaknesses" is GOD.

The USA leaders rarely mention GOD anymore.

Lisa ... # 1 .. Why do you think I would want any of those four ... I have only heard of the last two, & would not rate them for your VP!
I am interested in your presidential contest, because whoever wins will have a huge impact on my country.
So although I can't vote I like to know what's going on.

Lisa ... # 2 From what we hear in our news here in the UK:
Clinton grossly exaggerates her achievements and courage, and behaves like a teenage cheer-leader.
Obama is said to lack experience, & perhaps good judgment, & has an obvious disadvantage with a major sector of the public.
McCain, although he seems to have common sense, may be a bit old to be certain of getting through the full term wirhout medical problems.
So each would seem to need a very sound VP

I remember hearing all of the above about Mr. Bush, and that Mr. Cheney is really in charge.
Regardless of what you think about all of their flaws, behind Mr. Bush is his father, a brilliant man. Cheney's brains surpass those of Edwards, Thompson, Romney, and others that ran.

I suppose you would like Charlie Sheen or Rosie, maybe Oprah or Tom Cruise.
---lisa on 4/24/08

Dick Cheney is one of the most intelligent vice presidents that we've ever had.
History will prove that. He's not concerned with his haircut or dashing good looks, (Mr. Edwards).

These are the good old days. What's coming will make you wish you had these days back again.
---lisa on 4/24/08

I really doesn't move me how much Mr. Cheney and Mr. Bush have been bashed over the years here. Dick Cheney is steady as a rock, he doesn't roll off of his emotions.

Colin Powell comes to mind as a great choice.
Fluff and pretty doesn't cut it. Dense and inexperienced doesn't either. Dumb and Dumber.
