It’s really hard to think of any one move that could help McCain out among conservatives than picking Coburn as his running mate. In addition to all of the points Jeremy made, one interesting wrinkle is Coburn’s relationship with Barack Obama. The two worked together on earmark transparency, they are friends with one another, as are their wives. Coburn has had a lot of nice things to say about Obama publicly. Were he McCain’s running mate, he’d be in a strong position to say. “Look, I’ve worked with Sen. Obama, I like and respect him, and think he’s a good man. But I McCain is more prepared to be president, and has better policies.” That’s the kind of tone I think Republicans will need to beat Obama.
Of course, this may be a moot discussion, because, based on his past statements, it would surprise me if Coburn wanted to take the job of vice president. Also, he’s of more use to conservatives in the Senate.
