Look, on some level it makes no sense. John McCain has a series of positions that are in direct opposition to the Democratic party platform. And the fallout, among both parties could be massive. Can you really imagine John McCain speaking at the Democratic Convention in Boston? But we live in a moment in history when the divisiveness has become unhealthy. When the notion of a dual party ticket is more unthinkable than ever. And that’s why this may be the perfect time to put together a two way ticket.
It also seems somewhat obvious that a Kerry-McCain ticket would end up in the White House. Maybe that’s why much of the McCain talk is coming, not only from starry-eyed bloggers, but also from people inside the Kerry camp.
