I’m genuinely curious as to who everyone thinks is going to be on the ballot along w/ Dubbaya this November?
Cheney? Nothing wrong with Cheney, other than his 4 heart attacks, pacemaker and questionable ethics?
But really, will Bush make a change or go w/ what worked?
Giuliani? I’d be stunned if it happened since Giuliani is a liberal Republican, is not a good ol’ boy, and he’s an Italian-American (one of them ethnic people) from NYC. He’s also had 3 marriages and an affair, which would make him a hard sell to Christian conservatives. On the flip side though, Bush is loved by the Christian conservatives, so that may appease them and take care of that problem.
If the Republicans are worried about losing NorthEast Republicans to Kerry and/or the overall scumminess of the Bush regime, then I guess Giuliani makes some sense. He’s incredibly well-respected, has a spotless background (other than his love life) and has kind of a tough, don’t-fuck-with-me aura to him. He also would counter a lot of negativity of the post 9-11 era and the war in Iraq, since he was so strong and capable in the 9-11 aftermath.
Plus, the Republican convention is in NYC, that would be a blockbuster of an announcement.
What about Pataki? Solid, moderate Republican from NY, also w/ a spotless background. Not spectacular but then neither was Cheney.
Powell? Also has a spotless background, is well-respected, and African-American.
Who else? Who is it going to be?
