Dream Ticket Showdown!
|CNN breathlessly reported today on a head-to-head match-up between a John McCain/Condi Rice ticket vs. a Hillary Clinton/Barack Obama (or Obama/Clinton) ticket.|
According to the poll, McCain/Rice would beat Clinton/Obama 49-46, and would beat Obama/Clinton 49-44.
Stunning because this is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
1. Obama as VP to the person he's consistently beating? That'll happen.
2. Clinton has no chance to be Obama's running mate. She would be like a lead albatross. (I love mixing metaphors!)
3. Condi Rice? Based on her role in the Bush administration, she either easily surrenders her authority or she is grossly incompetent (these two are not mutually exclusive, btw). Let's just remind everybody about the Bush administration and what a wonderful ride it has been (and she is one of the few that have been there the ENTIRE time). That'll go over well in a "change" election. (See lead albatross.)
While we are discussing "dream tickets", I have a couple of match-ups I would like to see polled, perhaps in a state, like New York, that is so representative that the results could be extrapolated to rest of the country (let's say Utah).
Batman/Santa Claus vs. Jack Bauer/Snoopy
Boss Hogg/John Shaft vs. Silent Bob/Sam the Eagle (from the Muppet Show)
Master Shake/Faberge Eggs vs. General Zod*/Mustard
(Please vote your conscience in the comments...)
*Apparently, General Zod actually is running this cycle! (I love Google.)
