McCain's Secret Plot To Snag Lady Veep
Now that John McCain is the official Republican Presidential nominee, it's time to think about who will be his Vice President. When this question first arose several weeks ago, names like "Romney" and "Lieberman" came up. Now we can confirm that McCain's running mate will probably be a lady! Two emphatic "no"s from Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice just prove how passionately these women ache to be the first female since Geraldine Ferraro to lose a bid for the number-two position.
"I have always said that the one thing that I have not seen myself doing is running for elected office," Rice recently told reporters. "I didn't even run for high school president. It's sort of not in my genes." Also, she does not like people, which makes her the perfect choice to succeed known person-hater Dick Cheney.
As to Hutchison, she says "I don't want to be vice president." Of course, she would only have to hold that position for a year or so, maybe less, until John McCain expires from an overdose of dry rub and Ben-Gay.
