Dream Tickets 2008: McCain-Clinton, Obama-Obama

And why shouldn't a man and wife be President and Veep? No law against it

Well, under the Constitution (Art. 2 and Am. 12) the President and Vice-President must be residents of different states. Dick Cheney had to move back to Wyoming before the 2000 election. It would be tough on a happily married couple with young children.

Confronted with those two tickets, my choice would be Option C: Hell-No!

I've said it before: you're a frickin' genius!

All of the puzzle pieces are coming together...

Who's on top?

Too bad Bill Clinton's inelegible to run again for President or to run for Vice President, since that's one marriage where the husband and wife could plausibly argue that they are residents of different states. They live in the same houses in Westchester County, NW D.C., and maybe Little Rock, too, but never at the same time.

Doc: What I said was: "a happily married couple with young children."

My dentist's sister lives in Boca Raton. Her husband lives in Toledo. I am sure they happier that way.

Obama-McGreevey would be a double-historic ticket too. Adds a whole 'nuther dimension to the question of who's on top.

Gerard, I still say that you are the funniest man on the internets.

The most frightening place in the world: inside your head, for thinking up that Obama-squared nightmare ticket.

Woot for McCain-Clinton in '08! They would have my vote!

The unbeatable team for 2008 is Mccain/Clinton.

" . . . the results will be illuminating to behold. That they might well be illuminated by many square blocks of burning cities is beside the point."

Oh you bad, bad, bad, funny (oops!) bad, bad, bad man.

I say put Joe Lieberman as Vice-Presidential candidate on both tickets!

Will someone closer to Seattle than I am check to see whether, as appears not to be the case, Gerard is taking his meds?

Thanks from all of us out here.

Hillary is out of sight and out of mind where dead dogs lie. Leave her.

Obama and Pelosi reflect both sides of Marx's coin; "In Marx We Trust". Has she the guts to join the Obama ticket as VP? In her lust for power, will she attempt to become #2 rather than stay temporarily #3 in line for POTUS?

Vote anti-DNC and Pelosi loses the gavel. Then at least floor debate and subsequent votes can take place allowing taxed citizens their legal representation in Congress currently being denied by Czarina Pelosi.

Don't accept Pelosi's order that we all eat her Jim Crow substitute for turkey and stuffing dinner this Thanksgiving.

Survive and Thrive!
