Doesn't matter to me, I don't personally think he has a chance to win. I still can't believe what he said yesterday about the troops coming home, it just isn't important. That's mularkey.

I don't think anyone can say he doesn't have a chance to win.  If you look at the electoral map and states that will vote R or D no matter what, and states that are strongly leaning R or D, it comes down to about a dozen battleground states.  The Republicans have been extremely effective in presidential election campaigns, so keeping it close in those states may mean we just don't know until election day.

If McCain picks a young VP like Pawlenty or Jindal, that could be a springboard for them in future presidential elections, even if McCain loses.

Is it my imagination, or does McCain look different now?

A pick of Lieberman might entice some independents and more centrist Dems to vote for McCain. A pick of J.C. Watts might be a good pick to get some of the African American vote which will undoubtedly be very strong for Obama.

Me...I am voting for Bob Barr. Screw the system.

The neo-cons will walk out of the convention faster than they avoid military service, if he picks Lieberman.  Won't happen.

I agree, Bucs.

McCain's rhetoric seems IMO to have gotten a bit testier of late, since he hired Karl Rove clone Steve Schmidt.  Add to that the total co-opt of Bush policy from the past 8 years, and I think he's going to hew to the fringe rather than the center.
