McCAIN - MILF '08!
Seriously, McCain just picked a Tina Fey lookalike as Veep. Cool. I'm not sure how Hillary supporters will react, but Lorne Michaels just has to be thrilled.
I was thinking "Maverick and Moose"
Do you have the percentages of all the candidates? And what goes in to your calculations? Medical records? Just curious.
Will had McCain as a "Red" on BP's THR (Ticket Health Reports) :-)
FWIW: Oldest presidents upon taking office
Reagan - 74 (second term, the bastion of Republican hope)
McCain? - 72
William Harrison - 68 (died a month in due to pneumonia)
James Buchanan - 68 (considered one of the worst three presidents ever)
FDR was only 63 on his 4th term, but his frailty was well known.
Nearly every other president was mid 50's to early 60's upon taking office. My cursory glance on Wikipedia would put my guess at 80% fall in that range.
All in all, I think its fair to comment on the VP's inexperience with McCain's age and history. Should be interesting how this plays out...
Okay, well, I gotta say this then, it may not be intentional but I think the current Bad Altitude header fits this topic to a "t."
Caretaker presidents of the U-S-A"
Maybe she can be the lead singer for the new band, the Keating Five.
Being President is a tough gig, we can virtually watch them age before our eyes in a short 4 years. The next four years are going to be tough and while a fresh 72 year old McCain might be upto the task, I have serious doubts a tired 75 year old McCain will be. Not sure how old most of you are but anyone who has watched their grandparents or parents age from their early 70's to their late middle to late 70's, the drop in mental alertness is startling. It is one thing to say they are doing well for someone 75, it is another to say they have the mental and physical capacity for the job of President of the United States.
Obama's resume is laughable. "Community organizer"? That's the kind of stuff you put on a job application when you're fresh out of college and need a job, to make it look like that summer you spent working half-time at the recycling center on campus meant something.
Heck, Chris, you have more experience than Obama from working in the bookstore. The guy has never actually had a job.
Neither has Obama.
Don't diss being a mayor or governor based on the size of the constituency. They are executive jobs. She took on corruption in her own party, unlike Obama's embrace of the dirty Chicago machine. She is supremely more qualified than Obama to run anything, and she's only in the VP slot.
Trying to build a coalition of disenchanted Hillary voters and the Republican base is going to be harder than McCain though.
If being the mayor of Auburn Illinois is an executive position than my son is a 'Waste Technician' since he threw one of his sister's diapers away.
As U.S. Senator he has had to manage his staff, both in Illinois and DC and manage his campaign while withstanding intense media scrutiny...sounds like on the job training to be President if you ask me.
Oh, so that's why we elect senators as president once every five decades! Silly me.
