My top picks in no particular order:
- Fred Thompson
- Michael Steele
- Sarah Palin
- Carly Fiorina
Update: Foxnews says it’s Palin.
Whew… I’m not sure what to say.
Personally, I would have preferred Michael Steele or Fred Thompson… That said Palin’s a great choice, grass roots conservatives are energized/excited by it, inside the beltway “conservatives” who are confounded by it, the media weenies who were pushing Lieberman are apoplectic over it and demorcrats are whining. All in all I don’t think McCain could have made a better choice, Palin has solid conservative credentials, she’s intelligent, articulate and attractive. She should help McCain win over grass roots conservatives who don’t like or trust him.
Your list is almost identical to mine. If for some reason McCain doesn’t win, I’d look forward to seeing STeele or Palin running for President at some point.
Lets hope McCain wins, serves one term and we have Palin/Steele in 2012. 🙂
