NAME THAT TICKET: KENNEDY/??????
Just for grins (this ain’t no scientific poll!), we’d like to know your thoughts:
If Robert F. Kennedy Jr. ran for President of the United States, who would you like to see as his running mate? Who should he pick for VP?
A few names have already been floated over the past year as potential running mates – we’ve heard some great suggestions so far, such as:
Al Gore (wouldn’t that be the environmental dream ticket of the century?)
Senator Edward Kennedy (a Kennedy/Kennedy ticket? Interesting!)
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (always thought Kennedy/Kucinich had a great ring to it)
Former Senator Mike Gravel (longtime Democrat and 2008 presidential candidate who has now converted to Libertarianism)
Ralph Nader (although at age 74, we worry a bit about the “one heartbeat away” thing)
Senator Hillary Clinton (yes, it has been suggested that if she loses the Democratic nomination, she might just go renegade! How bad does she want the White House, anyway? And as VP, would she actually be the one to answer the phone at 3 A.M.instead of the President?)
Former Minnesota Governor and pro wrestler Jesse Ventura (who speaks of a possible independent run for the presidency in 2008 with RFK Jr. as his running mate. No jest!)
These are just a few ideas that have been suggested – some are flat crazy, some make sense. But we think the readers of this blog probably have some better ideas. Many of you are Bobby’s biggest fans – you know better than anyone who would make a great running mate for him – so let us know your thoughts.
We want to hear from you: imagining not only a winning ticket on the campaign trail, but who would serve him best in a presidential administration. Who would you like to see as Bobby Kennedy Jr.’s Vice President?
