Considering Dick Cheney's resume, the GOP might have a better chance of reclaiming the White House if George W. Bush and Cheney swapped places. Cheney is eminently more qualified to serve as president than Bush. If Cheney's name had been "in the hat" at the onset, I believe we would be looking at a different ticket. However, there's still a chance for the GOP to change its mind. Perhaps at the Philadelphia convention, GOP delegates can nominate Cheney as their heir apparent.
* Unbelievable! Here it is in the year 2000, our country is overflowing with talented and educated people of color and different faiths who have shown themselves learned professionals and compassionate participants in the pursuit to make this country great and Bush can only select another white guy who he feels can help him win the office.
This was a missed opportunity for the Republicans to make a bold and inclusive statement that everyone has a stake in this country. I guess Colin Powell was right! The Republican Party is a party of rich white guys. I wonder if Al Gore will do the same?
* I thought W. wanted to prove he's his own man. Cheney will only serve as a constant reminder of the country's malaise during his father's recessionary term.
* Evidently the people who created George W. as a candidate aren't quite sure of their product, so they have added a chaperon.
* Don't you just love the media! The election is four months away and we already have a Western White House outside of Waco, Texas. We have Powell heading the Defense Department and Sen. John McCain heading the State Department, just to name a few. I wonder why a conservative media that were totally wrong in the 1998 elections would take another stupid risk of projecting the election of Nov. 7?
