David Paul Kuhn writing for the Politico posits that John McCain is working to poach Hillary Clinton supporters by choosing a female VP for the GOP ticket.
The fact that McCain would find Hillary votes a legitimate voting bloc, and one who might be comfortable voting for the GOP, speaks to McCain’s deep blue roots. Secondly, it proves that politicians view women as interchangable morons who would vote for anyone with boobs and vag. As if Democrat women would be fooled into voting for the GOP merely because a woman’s name graces the ballot. Imagine if Obama tried that: choosing, say, Duncan Hunter for his VP. Would that fly in New York?
We need strong leadership by a man or woman who can rally business, keep taxes low, fight terrorism and crime, and rev the economy. If I believed there was a person who could do that, I’d vote for him or her. But race and gender are not legitimate traits to base one’s vote upon.
