Could it be a Republican Ticket of John McCain and VP Mitt Romney?


Republicans John McCain and Mitt Romney together again in Utah. Could this be the potential Republican ticket for the 2008 Presidential election? One would think that the McCain pick would have to sure up some uncomfortable feelings from the conservatives in the Republican party while still holding true to McCain’s independent ways. What would your dream match up be for the Republican party in 2008?

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – In a show of Republican unity, one-time bitter foes John McCain and Mitt Romney raised money and campaigned together Thursday for a single goal – getting McCain elected president.

“We are united. Now our job is to energize our party,” the Arizona senator said in an airport hangar, flanked by Romney and Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr., an early McCain supporter. Both have been mentioned as potential vice presidential picks, and McCain praised each.

Romney lauded McCain and promised to do all he can to help, saying: “He is a man who is proven and tested” and without question the right man to be president.

      Romney would detrimental to McCain for the same reason Romney had to drop out of the presidential race.

      I would have loved to have voted for Romney in the general election. McCain was close to my last choice, right there behind Paul. I have not much use for McCain who slipped in due to congregated votes to several candidates of a basic type, though McCain beats the Democrates alternatives for my view. So now, if Romney might get on the ticket as VP I am back to being much more interested. With most of the faults of McCain I see strength for Romney. McCain I also see as too old, therefore Romney’s younger presence is again attractive. I have contributed to individual candidates, but not the Republican funds. With this ticket I would be prone to make my modest contribution. Will be interesting to see if that ticket would peek interest for the Republican side gen election. Could handily be a winning ticket, barring any self shot feet between now and Nov.

      Three democrats running this year. Shrillary or Hussein Obama, and McCain. What is a republican supposed to do? McCain is a true war hero. I can’t thank him enough for his sacrifice, so I guess if he adds Mitt to the ticket, I may vote for him. I always vote, but this year I have been shocked by these choices. It will be very difficult to vote for a democrat in disguise.

      a typical Romney-esque approach to a situation-I wish more knew about this!-

      “One of my favorite experiences is related to the homeless. We have a number of homeless in Masschusetts; we spend about $130 million to care for the homeless. I was looking through the list of costs associated with our homeless program and there was one down there for hotels and it was in the tens of millions of dollars. And I said, what’s that? And they said, well you have to understand if someone comes to a homeless shelter and if the homeless shelter is full, we have to put them up at a hotel. And I thought well I bet the word gets around. Homeless shelter’s full: you go to the hotel. So I said why don’t we make a small change to the program. Let’s do this. Let’s say that when someone comes to a homeless shelter and it’s full and we have a number of people who come in dire circumstances, let’s tell them we’re going to let you into the shelter, but the person who’s been in the shelter the longest, they’re the one that’s now going to go to the hotel. That little change had a pretty profound effect. Incentives are pretty powerful. You know how many hotel rooms we rent now? We used to rent 600 rooms a night. Now we rent zero rooms a night. And the tens of millions of dollars we’ve saved we’ve been able to use to help people get into permanent housing.”

      McCain – Romney???

      YES, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      McAmnesty is not going to choose Romney. Liberman is going to be McAmnesty’s choice – two liberals.

      I will vote in 2008, just not for the presidential ticket. I will not cheapen my vote by voting for someone who does not represent my values and is willing to allow law breakers to become citizens.

      well romney should have been the front runner. the only reason mc caine won was because huckabee refused to step down.

      i’m not a mc caine fan & he will have to chose a v.p such as romney to get my vote.

    9. brenda on March 31st, 2008 6:50 am

      Amen to that TXChic. I wanted Romney in the first place as well. YES…Huckaboo wouldn’t drop and (in my opinion) thought that would solidify a VP “thank-you” position for him.

      I think Romney would be a nice addition.

      McCain should retire. I would like to see-Romney-Huckabee or Romney-Palen ticket. They would truly fix the economy and every thing else. Great honest & trustworthy Americans!

      McCain is a hot tempered blow hard; there’s good reason his nickname is Yosemite Sam. Ask anyone in the Senate who’s worked with him; his fuse is might short.
