The McCain campaign is floating the idea of Democratic Independent Senator Joe Lieberman as McCain’s running mate.
Unlike the Bloomberg-Paul ticket in Virginia, McCain-Lieberman is actually a good match. Both are warmonger welfare-statists.
As one of the commenters at Alarming News put it, ” Conservatives aren’t gonna be happy about it, but really, where are we gonna go? Lieberman looks like Buckley next to Obama.”
It will be interesting to see if Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr can peel off even more of those disgruntled conservative votes. Not that Libertarians are conservatives, but Barr definitely has his roots in and appeals to the right.
