15. Do you honestly think * would appoint a moderate?
Edited on Wed Nov-02-05 11:36 AM by longship
Nothing, repeat *nothing*, * has done indicates that he would even consider that. The neocon's first and foremost principles are:

1. Never admit that you are wrong.
2. Always stay within the cabal.

Voinovich, McCain, and all other moderates are *off-the-table* as appointed veep.

If the situation comes up he will appoint a nutcase just like he has done with virtually every single other appointment. I do not see that changing no matter what happens.

These guys are so deeply locked into their ideology that there is no way out for them. They have not compromised once in their entire five year tenure. I do not see why people think that they would start doing so now. That's what makes them so damned dangerous.

If Cheney resigns, dies in office, or is impeached and removed from office, * will appoint a another neocon lunatic to replace him. People should have zero doubt of that.
