We’re hitting the road today and will be gone for the whole labor day weekend. See the top post for why. So I’m sure I’ll miss John McCain’s announcement about his vice-presidential nominee. And since I won’t be taking my computer, I won’t even be able to comment on it. Since we’ve been making the vice-presidential office a big deal on this blog, we have got to talk about it.
So I’m turning the commentary over to you. Leaks will likely abound all day. The first person who hears who it is, tell us about it in a comment on this blog. If it’s before the official announcement, that’s better yet. We’ll see if we can scoop the world. If you’re wrong, someone else can get the credit for announcing the right one before anyone else.
Then discuss the choice. I know a lot of people are waiting to see who McCain picks before being willing to vote for him. Will he shore up his conservative credentials, which many question, with a conservative VP? Will McCain damage his pro-life credentials by picking a pro-death VP? We’ll know soon.
But I’m leaving this topic up to you to handle.
