Will it happen? Probably not, but John McCain’s best VP candidate would be Colin Powell. Secretary Powell is a mainstream conservative and has the obvious experience to be President should something happen to McCain. In my mind Secretary Powell is the best person we have to be President at this time, but he’s not running. The next best thing is for John McCain to put him on the ticket.
The Republican party should be ashamed of itself for putting McCain up there against Obama. He just cannot win (unless of course, he choose Colin Powell). McCain is to be admired but he’s simply too old to be the President. Didn’t we learn our lesson with Bob Dole? We have to stop voting for people just because we think it’s their turn. We need someone fresh but competent.
Please Mr. McCain, ask Colin Powell to be your Veep. Twist his arm if you have to. He’s the best man for the job.
