The Ticket?



In a show of Republican unity, one-time bitter foes John McCain and Mitt Romney raised money and campaigned together Thursday for a single goal - getting McCain elected president.

"We are united. Now our job is to energize our party," the Arizona senator said in an airport hangar, flanked by Romney and Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr., an early McCain supporter. Both have been mentioned as potential vice presidential picks, and McCain praised each.

Romney lauded McCain and promised to do all he can to help, saying: "He is a man who is proven and tested" and without question the right man to be president...

more than 40 million of his personal fortune paid and all he might get is the VP slot, was that really a worthwhile invest?

Considering the odds McCain won't survive the election cycle, or the first year, second year, third year or fourth year in office because of his age and the stress of the job? He may be thinking this is almost better than spending even more of his money....

That just means Romney will have to wait a few more years for a successful run of his own. He'd be a lock for it then!
