I was watching Colin Powell this morning, and he said he hasn't decided whom to vote for, and if I'm not mistaken I believe he is a registered independent.

I think that if any of the three (and you too, Ron Paul!) could get Colin Powell on the ticket as VP they would win, and win with a large majority of votes throughout the states. Colin Powell would give Obama and Clinton the international/military experience they lack and at the same time could soften McCains and make him more palatable to both liberals and conservatives. And if Ron Paul could get him, he could actually go all the way

Frankly, I know I would feel better about any of the three winning if Colin Powell was VP....

Powell was a rubber stamper.

Then who do you think would be a VP that would compliment Obamas, Clintons or McCains ticket to make it unbeatable?

I think the ticket of God and Satan would appeal to most of America. Something for everyone.

More attractive to some maybe but their is no dream team.Gore for instance had it has good as it gets going into a general election but faltered. Being ahead only means you have two place to go ahead and falling behind. Being behind you have one place

He'll forever be associated with that despicable UN speech with Tenet sitting behind him. He'll never run for public office. I don't think his family wants him to either. He's a good man, just made a poor choice in choosing who to hitch his wagon to.
