I’ve written previously – on February 4, to be precise – that this ticket is as certain a winner as anything can be in politics. I was interested to read, in this past Sunday’s New York Times editorial, about rumor and speculation that John McCain might consider running for vice president with Kerry.
I believe Kerry-Powell to be even more potent a combination. The damage to Bush and the Republican Party of the sitting secretary of state, one of the most respected men in the world, switching to the Democrats, and the force of this man’s personality, would electrify the country.
Not to mention the fact that Powell would be superbly positioned to make a run for the presidency either 4 or 8 years from now.
Remember – you heard it here first.
