If McCain wins the nomination, he needs to reconcile with Romney so they can team up. This combination would be a powerful against the democrats, otherwise the dems will probably win. I know Romney said he wouldn't be his VP, but think about it....it would solidify the republican party moreso than any other combination.

no it wouldn't. Romney is too much of a turn off for independents. Although it may get some conservatives to hold their nose and vote for McAmnesty, but not nearly enough to make much of a difference.

Too many peope are prejudiced against Mormons for Romney to be a viable national candidate. The last few decades have seen great progress in fighting discrimination against many formerly oppressed groups -- but weird white people are still okay to publicly insult and hate.

McCain is too stubborn. He wants to be #1 so bad I don't think he will take any advice from his VP.

No thanks, the office of the President is already a joke, no need to turn it into a circus.

Mitt "Flip-Flop" Romney would add absolutely nothing to the ticket and in fact, would severely hurt McCain. The electorate is far more prejudiced against opportunistic, phony, flip-flopping politicians than Mormons. And unfortunately, Romney is both.

if McCain were smart, he would choose Tom Ridge. And if Ridge can carry PA for the Republicans, then it would be a major strategic blow for the Democrats in 2008.

It will never happen McCain is to much of an egomaniac to swallow his pride and make nice with Mitt. Two words for all of you McCain fans,BOB DOLE!! The last pathetic old moderate republican senator "war hero" that thought it was his turn to be president!!
