I've made my decision...
Any combination of these three candidates would be acceptable to me:

Dean-Kerry, Dean-Clark, Kerry-Dean, Kerry-Clark, Clark-Dean, Clark-Kerry....I think any of these would be a winner. And I think a Dean-Graham, Kerry-Graham, or Clark-Graham would also be acceptable.

1. We're close to agreement here
I especially like these combinations you posed:

And I think a Dean-Graham, Kerry-Graham, or Clark-Graham would also be acceptable.

6. I'm thinking in terms of
inside-outside

Graham is a Washington insider who knows how to shepard legislation through. He would be an asset to either Clark or Dean in that regard. Kerry knows how but I wouldn't want him focusing strictly on the "inside baseball" aspect of governing.

Make sense?

9. Hey, It worked for Clinton-Gore
If that's how it turns out, I'm all for it.

3. Not bad choices
but I'm afraid it would lead to more "business as usual", unfortunately (just my $.02, mind you, as I'm a Kucinich supporter, and you didn't list him anywhere :D).

15. I like Kucinich but...
I don't get the feeling that he is in top echelon at this time. I would support him in a heartbeat if I thought that was a possibility...however, I would love to see him in the Cabinet. I think he might make a good Secretary of Labor or Secretary of Interior or...

8. good combinations!
Edited on Tue Oct-07-03 01:27 PM by displacedtexan
i really don't care at this point (except i fear that lieberman has burned too many bridges with too many voting groups)...

i snicker every time i visualize KERRY/CLARK on a bumper sticker, though: it sounds like an american idol winner's name to me!

CLARK/KERRY has the same syllabic resonance as bush/cheney.

and don't forget that CLARK is from arkansas, so graham isn't the only 'southern' candidate.

10. Isn't it great that we have so many viable combinations in plain sight?
No need for the nominee to look far and wide for an acceptable running-mate or a "statement" running-mate.

I would love any of these, Kentuck.

12. Dean-Edwards
Is my vote.

Dean seems to be the strongest candidate, and now that Clark's out of the picture (probably) as a potential running mate, Edwards might give him the southern vote he needs.

13. No final decisions
But I could easily support a Clark/Kerry - Kerry/Clark ticket. I like Graham, but apparently most Americans don't - so where's the edge with him on the ticket? Would it be wise to annoint him as VP "just" to get Florida's vote? I don't believe he has any other Southern appeal except there. If Clark couldn't get the Southern vote at the top of a hypothetical ticket, it'd be a loser anyway, imo.

IOW, I don't believe people vote "for" the VP candidate; however, they might vote "against" a ticket because of the second man/woman on a ticket.

Dean has no appeal to me, and never has. I know *that* goes against the DU grain, by and large, but that's just mho anyway.
...O...

14. Clark/Gephardt
Clark is head and shoulders above the others in terms of looking, acting, and speaking the part of president.

As for the V.P., Gephardt was in the military, he is from a swing state (MO), and he has strong union ($$$) support!

16. They all sound good to me, too
I can't wait until we have one ticket to rally around. The intercandidate squabbles are getting tiresome.
