I find this scenario a little odd, but I could see him choosing someone like Huckabee.

True, however, as you are aware, Vice President Agnew resigned, due to scandal, as Nixon's Vice President and Nixon replaced him with Gerald Ford.

No.  It is a parallel.  This shows that this situation can actually happen, where a sitting Vice President resigns, or is forced to resign, and is replaced by the President's nominee.

Irrelevant.

I agree McCain was going to lose, however, my actual question supposes McCain and Governor Mark Sanford win. 

Sanford, the new Vice President, continues down the path he did in real life, having affairs with prostitutes.

He has to resign as Vice President.

My question being who does President McCain then nominate to replace Sanford as Vice President?

This is an impressive resource, man.

Thank you for your comment.  Much appreciated.

For each of the major nominees, I would like to have  included as well post secondary education and military service, if any.  I did include these details with some of the nominees but not all of them.

I have been going slowly through the thread, and adding this information at least for the major nominees as much as I could.  I have found, however, that for some of the entries, it takes me over the maximum number of characters allowed for an entry, so this has presented a problem.

But again, thank you so much for your kind words.

I believe the pre fall from grace Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina would have been a good pick for McCain's VP.

At that time, he was considered to be a good Governor, and could have added positively to the ticket.

However, had he been picked, and had they won, and had Sanford continued down the same path as he did, this would have resulted in the dismissal or resignation of a sitting Vice President, and would have brought scandal upon the McCain Presidency.

Had this scenario became a reality, who should McCain have picked to replace Sanford as Vice President in 2009?

I believe most are agreed that Sarah Palin was not the best pick by John McCain for VP in 2008, coming across as an airhead in many respects, and perceived by most as not Vice Presidential material, let alone Presidential material.

The number one rule for picking a Vice Presidential candidate is to pick someone who is capable of assuming the Presidency in the event something should happen to the President.  In my view, McCain failed this criteria miserably.

In retrospect, who should John McCain have picked for Vice President other than Sarah Palin?

I remember Romney saying Russia was a threat and everyone laughed at him. If he does run again, his foreign policy could emphasise stronger opposition to Russia.

Mitt Romney, a true visionary.

Please, Gillibrand is hardly Presidential material.

Mitt wins easily.

Now that there is a Mitt Romney 2016 megathread, and for the record, I do not believe for a moment that Mitt will run for President in 2016, or ever again, but that aide, for the purposes of sheer speculation, let us say that Mitt did run in 2016, knowing what we know now, who would be the best running mate for Mitt?

Give your reasons for your choice or choices if you like.

I thought you would like this thread my friend. If Mitt doesn't run, who might he endorse?

Indeed, this entire forum owes  you a debt of gratitude for this magnificent thread.

You had a wonderful idea and demonstrated great foresight in creating this thread to discuss one of America's great leaders.

I will have to agree that if Mitt does not run he will endorse and support Jeb.

And I for one do not believe that Mitt will run.

Mitt Romney is the best presidential candidate in the last 100 years.  He's also a wonderful person non-politically speaking.  He loves his wife, is a terrific father, always sets good examples, and is just a warm, caring person.  Honestly, his dear father is looking down from Heaven and is so proud of his exemplary son.

That is some of your finest work.

Well, thank you my good man, thank you indeed.

Wait, Winfield commented in this thread, and he didn't pick up on this question in the poll?

"In the Presidential election of 2012, if Mitt Romney had become President instead of Barack Obama, do you think that, in general, the nation would be better off than it is today or worse off than it is today?"

better off 45%
worse off 38%


I don't want to rub it in and say I told you so.

Besides, the OP was concentrating on what an absolute and abject failure Obama has been, not on what a great President Romney would have been.
17  General Discussion / Constitution and Law / Re: Seniority in the U.S. Supreme Court on: July 12, 2014, 02:26:09 pm
I would say the reason was that Powell was likely sworn in before Rehnquist on that day.

I would also say that age would have nothing to do with seniority, but simply a matter of which one is sworn in first.

Now, perhaps due to the fact that  Powell was older than Rehnquist, may have been the reason Powell was the first to be sworn in, nevertheless, Powell would have seniority over Rehnquist because he was likely sworn in first.

Mitt Romney is the worst presidential candidate in the last 100 years. He's also a terrible person non-politically speaking. He abused his wife, is a bad father, doesn't set good examples, and is just a cold, uncaring person. Honestly, his dead father is rolling in his grave at his dirtbag son.

Allow me to correct the above statement:

Mitt Romney is the best presidential candidate in the last 100 years.  He's also a wonderful person non-politically speaking.  He loves his wife, is a terrific father, always sets good examples, and is just a warm, caring person.  Honestly, his dear father is looking down from Heaven and is so proud of his exemplary son.

Like him or not, Nixon was very well qualified for the office, more so than most any other candidate.

Unfortunately, he let his insecurities and his dark side take control.

A candidate never elected to the Presidency who was very well qualified was Hubert Humphrey.

What's next for me???

Bask in the glory of the magnificent new golden age of Atlasia which you ushered in and which will be remembered for all time in the annals of Atlasian history.

To paraphrase another great statesman, Winston Churchill

If Atlasia lasts for a thousand years, people will still say this was their finest hour.

According to many posters in this thread

Poll that shows Obama in a bad light = A useless poll

Get over it!
25  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Worst President since WWII on: July 05, 2014, 01:11:25 am
Well, I can only agree with the real poll in this matter.

The real poll is, after all, scientific and accurate.

Therefore, Obama
