Pawlenty: Obama should have picked Petraeus for VP. by Matt at THINK PROGRESS

#4. Zooey Says: Something in the water up there, Minnesotans? Yeesh… August 24th, 2008

- #9. tom Says: I sure wish I knew! My state has had a proud tradition but we seem to have lost our way ever since Paul Wellstone died. I guess we are not entirely immune to the mindless right-wing, neo-con, anti-government, evangelical assault on America.

Hopefully, a fresh wind will blow across the country this fall and we can finally get back on track after eight years of the disastrous GDumbya/Darth Cheney regime.

oh, phooey...i hate when that happens! if it isn't michele bachmann, its tim pawlenty. we get insulted in the 6th cd when m.b spews forth her fanatic neo-tales. and with t.p on the short list for mccain, we get it again with his neo-conning. i might have to focus my attention on minnesota only, for the rest of the election year. i'm sure there are many good blue's or purple's, possibly a few real red' our former Governor Arne Carlson. i really liked him! the best thing about any great elected official, is never thinking about which side they come from. Because they are doing such an effective job. now that takes integrity and intelligence. THANK YOU Governor Carlson.

Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at

Team McCain, well done!!!

Very Interesting. You have my attention and I will begin doing my homework. Only cuz I don't know the name Palin at all. I wondered about the McCain campaign taking advantage of 'making it time' to bring a woman to the ticket as VP, after Biden was chosen. Since I've lost my candidate, I'm more open to learning more about other candidates. Still won't ever vote for McCain though. I'm bothered by things about him, like I'm bothered with things about Obama. Stuff stuck in my craw. As long as stuff is stuck in my craw, neither candidate is relevant to me. If Hillary (by some big miracle) won the VP with the separate dnc convention floor vote, I could over look Obama's stuff more than McCain. I'll do another post about Palin when i learn more. Thank you for posting today Ted.
