McCain Outlines Vice Presidential Selection Philosophy
By Robert Barnes
BAKERSFIELD, Ca. -- Sen. John McCain's choice of a running mate appears to be ... a Republican.
McCain was asked about his choice today while speaking, via webcast, to a group of friends and supporters in Bermuda who had gathered to raise money for him. Since any morsel of news about the vice president is heavily sifted for clues, experts out there can chew over this:
"I just want to assure you that we're going through the process. There's so many highly qualified people in our party, ranging -- and I won't mention names -- but ranging from people who have been stalwarts in our party for a long time, and great governors and senators and business people. It's a very tough decision," McCain said.
"And I'll just mention a couple of aspects, very quickly. First, you ought do no harm. First, you want to make sure you have a candidate that's not going to burden the ticket. The second thing is, and I think it's the key criteria, is it someone who shares your principles, your values, your philosophy and your priorities? The hardest thing for the president is to establish priorities. And I think we're blessed with a wealth of candidates,'' he added.
So all that clearly points to ... who?
