Sometimes I have to try on an idea and let it sink in a little before I really know how to feel about it. I would like to take back my suggestion that Romney and McCain run together. That would be like Abraham Lincoln running as VP to Jimmy Carter.
Romney should see this thing through. He is new to the political scene and has finally gotten his name out there. While not likely, there could still be some unforeseen events that could propel Mitt to the nomination. What Romney needs to do is to wrap himself up in conservatism and work till our country comes to our senses. His election may be realized in '08 or 2012...but now is not the time for compromise...especially with such a traitor to the party like John McCain.
John McCain is not the man to lead the Republican party and I would be ashamed to have Mitt help him in that effort. Sorry about my moment of weakness that was on display yesterday. If it ends up being a choice between McCain and Obama or Hillary, I will vote for Bloomberg or Bart Simpson as a write-in. I will still vote so that I can choose the most conservative Senator and Judges...but for the choice of president, McCain will not get my vote just because he has an R after his name.
