By the way, the local news just showed an interview with Pawlenty. He's looking like the running mate...  Wink

I'll cry if he gets obliterated after the VP deabtes.

Not really, but I'll be upset.

I'm sure many people cried when Quayle got "obliterated" against Bentsen.

I'm sure they cried again on Election night, too. Tears of joy, that is. If Bush could survive Quayle, McCain can survive Pawlenty. Enough already.

Too bad that this year we aren't coming off of an extremely popular Republican president, who won by landslide proportions.

Bush was a shoo in.  McCain isn't.

The GOP wasn't as popular in 1988 as people like to believe. Neither was Reagan.

I know that.  Don't forget Dukakis was an atrocious candidate, who was easily perceived as a typical liberal Democrat.  Frankly, the ticket may have had a chance if Bentsen was at the top of the ticket.

I disagree that Reagan was unpopular, but please correct me if I'm twisting your words.
