At least, Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow think it's a bit unbelievable.

PJ'S PREDICTION: McCain's going to choose Colin Powell as VP, to neutralize the Obama effect.

The point isn't that Hillary is literally running for McCain's VP... it's that she's hurting the Democratic party. And hey, Olbermann and Maddow said it first.

Besides, I think the guy who spent a few years being tortured in a foreign country is probably a bit thicker skinned than Hillary, however mean the press is to her. I mean, if we're playing the experience versus change game ;P

PalJoey, there have been black presidential candidates before. It's not so much about the color of his skin as it is the person he is and the way he affects people. I haven't heard any rumblings about Powell at all... I think if McCain were smart he'd get a guy who was strong on the economy.

My Republican friends tell me McCain will only ask Powell to be VP if Obama gets the nomination. If it's Hillary, he won't need/ask Powell.

So say my Republican friends.

I don't think he'll get the black vote either way since black people love Bill Clinton and will be quick to embrace him again. I don't think McCain's really all that fussed about trying to counter the race card.

Oh don't kid yourself. McCain want to WIN. And he has Karl Rove on his side. And Karl Rove REALLY wants to win.

Yeah I can't see Powell being the Republican's patsy again after the way Bush treated him.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

McCain has to make nice with the Evangelicals. Look for someone who can bring their vote in.

If he is trying to neutralize the Obama effect, he will chose Condi Rice.

Well stop hanging around Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton and get out and meet some new people.

"Yeah I can't see Powell being the Republican's patsy again after the way Bush treated him."

Never underestimate the lure of power. Powell would probably jump at the chance, especially with a potential president as old and decrepit as McCain is.

"Personally, I'm thrilled that we have a Democratic party and a country that has given both of us the opportunities to make our cases to the American public and to make history. And it's going to be a unified Democratic party. We're going to get behind whoever our nominee is and we're going to go in to the general election and I think we're going to win and thank goodness we will because we desperately need a Democrat back in the White House." - Hillary, from last night's Jon Stewart show.

Doesn't sound like she's helping the Repubs to me.

Well, Hillary sure does get a lot nicer when she's up in the polls, doesn't she?

Besides, she was on the Jon Stewart show. Think about who watches the Jon Stewart show. Probably largely the Obama demographic. Like she's going to go on there and bash him.

dg, you haven't been around so get with the program: hillary is as bad as or worse than any republican short of dubya, slick dick or rove. sheesh, is it that hard to understand? once bammy wins and sets up the re-education camps we won't have these problems. you'll have your soul saved and be happy to praise the almighty bammy.
