What is Your Idea of a Dream Ticket?

There's been talk of a Clinton/Obama dream ticket, but the Republicans may have good reason to consider their own fantasy. A poll just put out shows that John McCain could beat either versions of the Democratic ticket, if he can somehow recruit Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as his VP.

The poll suggests the two Republicans would carry New York — a strong Blue state— defeating a Clinton-Obama ticket by 3 points (49-46 percent) and an Obama-Clinton ticket by 5 points (49-44 percent.) If they could defeat the Dems in a state like New York — Clinton's home state! — it might just be a GOP dream ticket.

Condi has said no thanks, and plans to return to Stanford University after she's finished being Secretary of State. Obama has also killed rumors that he's running for second place.

But since we can still dream, which match up is your idea of an ideal ticket?

I'm curious Auntie Coosa...I can't figure it out. Who are you supporting? McCain?

Y'all don't know politics if you think there's 'bad blood' between HRC and BHO. It's 'nothing personal' as soon as the final vote is cast and the Nominee is awarded a place on the Ballot. Politics makes strange bedfellows. At each other's throats today and joining forces tomorrow. Obama fans, check out http://www.theobamafile.com to learn documented and verified facts about your hero. Clinton fans, there's nothing online that you don't already know about and are willing to ignore. Did you just read that Gore and Carter are going to team up to talk Hillary into dropping out of the race? I think she'd rather run into Monica Lewinski than give up until the DNC.

McCain/Thompson is my dream ticket, but I would love a McCain/Rice ticket.

Ekaterina Ballerina, Yes I do mean RON PAUL. I believe in his ideas and what he stands for, my political opinion is just that, MINE. I've done my research, thank you, and I still gladly stand by Dr. Paul. And as for Reagan...I am a conservative and I although I wasn't alive for his presidency, I really like the way he ran things. I don't need to "do more research" on the way I feel about certain issues, it's the way I feel and when someone represents that I will stand by them.

Lauren - I can DEFINITELY understand your feelings on that, especially in light of her "First Lady papers". However, I do think that Hillary has more experience -- as a politician, not at being president. She's better at being elected, not doing the actual job.

I feel like Hilary and Obama are just as experienced. They both have one term in senate, right? Being first lady does not make her more experienced, imho.

I can not stand Condi. While I'm not a McCain fan, I do find some of his policies and even his personality to be respectable. However, if he ran with Condi, I think I'd cry. The thought of Condi in the White House, even as VP, makes me want to punch babies. And I'm a pacifist. That says it all.

"Do you guys think there would be an Obama/Clinton ticket?" I don't think it would happen, because IMO, she has really crossed the line several times. When you burn a bridge, there is no going back! And I don't think it would really help either of them. Compared to McCain, they have less elected experience and I think it would benefit both of them to have a more long term government official on the ticket with them.

I wouldn't vote for a ticket that Clinton leads and wouldn't really want to vote for one with her on it. She's too in bed with corporations and the Pentagon for knee-jerk liberal me.

With all the bad blood that has developed between Obama and Clinton, I don't see either of them selecting the other as a running mate. In other news, did you see Bill Clinton try to defend his wife over the Bosnia sniper misrepresentation. It must run in their family, because he couldn't get the facts right either....

Do you guys think there would be an Obama/Clinton ticket? I could see Clinton/Obama because I don't think Obama has as big an ego as the Clintons, but I really can't see Hillary putting ego aside to play 2nd fiddle to this newcomer... What do you think?

"If I had to select my absolute Dream Ticket, it would be Night Ranger opening for Soul Asylum. Think about it!" I saw Journey (not with Steve Perry, though, sadly) open for Def Leppard. I'd trade the Leppard for some AC/DC, though, Oh, no, wait--Poison! Oh, Bret Michaels. So dreamy... I'd take a ticket with Richardson in either position. I really liked him during all of the debates, and it would have been cool to see him last a bit longer in the race.

I'm holding out for Condi to run for President. She would make an excellent first female President or a great first African-American female President. Either way, she's perfect for the job.

"We need more real people running for office instead of politicians." That would be nice, but then you get people saying they are inexperienced. I think Obama most closely matches the "real person" description.

I'd second the Obama/Edwards ticket. I was an Edwards girl until he dropped out. KathleenxCouture : Do you mean Ron Paul? If so, please do some more research. The man is a blatant racist. NOT the kind of person that should be running this country. Some of his ideas are not so bad but the racism aspect is just plain wrong. And Reagan was only a "good" president for the conservatives. He failed to recognize that he represented people outside of his party. If McCain would be more of a moderate (because let's face it people this country is a democracy and we need a multi-party system that represents all of the political minds of the people, dem, repub, independent, green.) he'd be more of an ideal candidate. I like Obama because I think he will do a better job of bringing people together and working with all parties and minds. That is what America needs.

Powell recently said many positive things about Obama (including that Pastor Wright has done amazing things for his community, and that Obama said very important things in his race speech). Powell has also said positive things about Obama last year. Powell seems to be leaning more Obama than McCain.
