I have heard that there is a rumor going around in the District of Criminals that IF Dick Cheney decides to step down that JOHN MCCAIN is the front runner for VP!

OMG, I hope not. there goes any hope of a fair shake when the Democommies propose any new gun bans...

McCain would have to cast the tie breaking vote in the senate.  Would end up with a 50/50 split and McCain sides with the socialist democRats.

You guys must live in some alternate reality where the VP gets to do what he wants and act according to his own principles. In reality, if McCain were the VP and a tie-breaking vote came up, he would vote EXACTLY as George W Bush told him to.  That's just the way it works.

President Bush and McCain do NOT get along, to put it mildly.  I doubt that there is any substance to this rumor.

First, Cheney is a tough hombre and is going to be okay.  But if he does die on the job (and he won't resign) then I predict his wife, Lynne, will get the job.

Getting mccain as vp would be stealth bipartisanship (remember the gop is the party of "inclusion") without making the sheeple republicans mad at bush. In 4 years then mccain could make another run at the presidency with more "legitimacy" and support.

GOD forbid cheney should die, the next in power to get the vp job would be powell.in other words the country will still be in excellent shape
