a hypothetical question for you, Mud:
If it could be shown that Russ' numbers are predictive to a certainty, would you favor the switch?
That's a trick question, as yer asking me to say it's alright to sacrifice four years to get a "clean, unannointed candidate" in 2008. I honestly do not believe that winning and having Cheney on the ticket are mutually-exclusive. Come November, I realisticly expect Bush/Cheney to bring in AT LEAST 75% of the Electoral Votes...to say we've only got a 1 in 4 chance of winning with Cheney on the ticket is ludicrous to me.
