I saw this in the Globe and Mail: McCain won't rule out running with Kerry.

"John Kerry is a close friend of mine. We have been friends for years," Mr. McCain said Wednesday when pressed to squelch speculation about a Kerry-McCain ticket. "Obviously I would entertain it."

But Mr. McCain emphasized how unlikely the whole idea was.

"It's impossible to imagine the Democratic party seeking a pro-life, free-trading, non-protectionist, deficit hawk," the Arizona senator told ABC's Good Morning America during an interview about illegal steroid use. "They'd have to be taking some steroids, I think, in order to let that happen."

I'm still in shock at the Dems choosing a "free-trading" war hawk as their presidential nominee. If McCain would consider running against Bush and Cheney, he should have done it as a Republican. I'm really appalled that a party could have an incumbent be as bad as Bush and not even consider seriously replacing him.

Assuming that Kucinich and Dean are out of the question as Kerry's running mate, I hope he picks Bob Graham. Graham would be a knowledgeable voice of moderation on foreign policy, which Kerry badly needs, and would also help win in Florida, which just might be important.
