Here's my opinion of each candidate:

Chafee: Great republican, if I lived in Rhode Island, I would vote for him.
Specter: I actually supported him over Hoeffel.  I think he would be a great VP.
Miller: I can't stand him (see Republican convention).
Byrd: I guess I kind of like him, but the whole racist/KKK thing would stop me from ever voting for him.

Here's my opinion of each candidate:

Chafee: Great republican, if I lived in Maine, I would vote for her.


Actually Lincoln Chafee is a guy, and is from Rhode Island, but you've got the right idea.  He's similar to Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine.

You like Miller because of the GOP convention?

One question: why on earth would Robert Byrd (in the Senate since the '50's and still there...) be Zell Miller's (in the Senate since 2000. And no longer there) V.P?

First you have the seniority problem (yes, Byrd would see it like that) and then you have the fact that Byrd has always been fairly anti-Republican, something that can't really be said for Zell at the moment.

There's also some "fairly" large ideological differences between the two... on social issues I'd guess their views are similer, but economically?

The reason I put Byrd on the ticket is he is fairly socially  Conservative and would probably have appeal to socially Conservative Southern Republicans (along with Zell obviously) who would be turned off by having 2 socially liberal candidatees running on the Republican ticket.  Basically I was trying to come up with something that would be an inverse of what we have now.  Chaffe & Specter are the 2 most liberal Republicans out now

I'd vote Chafee/Specter.

Not sure who would win, though.

inviting zell to speak at the republican convention was truly a low point in the history of the party.

most of his speech was nonsensical garbage delivered with an annoying tone of voice.

and his post speech interview with chris matthews really illustrated  the weird and deranged zell.

Chafee would win, and I would vote for him.
