By all accounts, conservatives would hail an Obama decision to include the Billary team on his e-ticket.
Which is why he won’t do it — even Obamassiah isn’t stupid enough to commit political suicide. Can you imagine Bill being content playing “second to the second” for four, maybe eight years? Ain’t gonna happen — and the man from Illinois understands this.
Sure, they’ll play the “dream ticket” game right up to the convention, with the media snuffling for morsels each day. Nothing makes an MSM journalist’s day more than an ability to write a “dream ticket” article each day leading up to the event in Denver.p>Smart politics. br> — Owen H.

Three separate writers have produced three definitive pieces in today’s edition to prove why beating the Democratic Party’s nominee should be relatively easy. All wrote about what we in the heartland to know as arrogance, elitism, and full up stupidity regarding our nation’s security. Yet, I wonder if McCain will be bright enough to use any of the ammunition handed him. He, while surely being a military hero, he seems loathe to aim and shoot verbal bullets as his opponents. Strangely enough, his temper is used quite freely about other things, but seems to go under the wraps when he plays in the playpen of the privileged ruling class.
I find much to be distressed about this election. As the mother of a Special Forces pilot, who returns to war shortly for his 8th time, I fear for the course of direction I see our nation taking. In fact, I fear it so much that I have sat here on the ranch fairly quiet, while trying to pray this through. Rush Limbaugh, esteemed political commentator, urges his listeners each day to not be afraid, he reminds us that America is still strong. I fail to see his optimism, as I see a wildly drunken former heavyweight reeling from side to side, spending wildly, hoping the next fight’s result is better, and toppling finally to the ground.
But what do I know? I sit on a ranch in relative isolation. But as my Dad, who nears 89 says to me, “Well, gal, it is often not those in the arena who see the path of destruction coming, but those observing from far away, who take in small details that will spell out the end.” I think he means something akin to folks who can’t see the forest for the trees analogy. I know this, we are sowing the seeds of our own destruction and it won’t be any Presidential candidate that we can depend on this election cycle. And while Rush Limbaugh believes that in failure we will have time to rebuild conservative values from the bottom up with another Reagan-esque styled person, I don’t see that on America’s horizon. I see only that we are a sinking ship.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
