I guess we should ponder the possiblity.
It would be the right thing for Clark to do.
It would go along with the peoples movement that CLark has put his faith into.
We have got to work together.

2. I've said for months that I just don't see
either a Dean/Clark or a Clark/Dean ticket. Either Clark or Dean will probalby select more of a Washington insider for the VP position. Two outsiders are in a lousy position to work with the congress.

I think Graham is a great choice for either candidate.

9. I don't want Bob Graham for VP nominee.
Edited on Sat Jan-03-04 11:40 AM by Eric J in MN
I don't think Florida is winnable because 40,000 of the 60,000 legal voters who were purged from the rolls still haven't had their right to vote restored.

Also, Theresa La Pore is insisting on touchscreen machines with no paper ballots.

10. Bob Graham
could help carry Florida a LOT more than any other possible VP nominee. We can definitely win Florida, and by more than 40,000 votes.

3. I don't see the point, I guess
of speculating right now, outside of the fun-of-it (and it's gotten less fun lately.)

But, agreed, we must all agree to work together. (Although, methinks you are new to DU.)

Okay, who will give me odds that this turns into a Kucinich thread.

7. Vice Presidents
haven't always been like Cheney. Most of the time they have little real power as far as I know. I don't think they will both be on the ticket. Just my prediction.

12. IMHO
If whoever gets the nod were to pick an also ran as VP, the logical choice would be gore. Picking a VP the people did want as President is much better than picking one they didn't.


JAFO

13. I think...
we need to look at the Electoral College when deciding to pick a nominee. Name a state, an elected official from that state who's currently quite popular there, and decide whether or not we have a shot at winning it.

I wish there was a nice, moderate, high-profile Ohio Democratic senator or governor to pick from.. I want those 20EVs BADLY.. grr..

14. My second favorite ticket behind Clark/Edwards
The question is mainly whether Dean would do Clark/Dean. I think it would be a winning ticket. I would love to see Dean vs. Cheney. I think Cheney's facade of gravitas would wilt and reveal the college dropout, draft evading, sickly "Mr. Potter" underneath.

15. Unity ticket
Without saying whom should be whose VP, there is still the possibility of unity ticket under which Clark and Dean are presented as the leaders in certain areas. In this scenario, Dean would choose the Secretaries for Treasury, Labor, Education, and other "domestic" departments, and Clark would pick the Secretaries of State, Defense and the National Security Adviser and the undersecretaries of the "domestic" departments that have competence in foreign affairs. The question that would need to be resolved, beyond who would be the top of the ticket, would be who would compose the White House staff.

16. Would be an AWESOME ticket, IMO.
And, as James Carville pointed out re: Clark's denail about wanting/accepting the VP nod, the surest way to be considered is to deny you want it. :P

17. What would Dean offer to a Clark ticket?
Any gains that could be made would be more noticeable with Clark Kucinich.
