Krusty Konservative: McVeepstakes: The Good, the Bad and the downright Ugly

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

Seldom these days is there an exchange of political banter at
Wellman's or under the golden dome where the veepstakes doesn't come
up. There are seemingly endless possibilities for Sen. McKain to
choose from, but before we get into that let's take a look at the
good, the bad and the downright ugly schools of thought when deciding
on a running mate. The Good: In 1980, then Governor Ronald Reagan won
a hotly kontested primary fight over his closest and bitter rival
George Herbert Walker Bush. In an effort to unify and mobilize the
party to defeat an incumbant president, Gov. Reagan chose Bush whose
foreign policy experience as the former head of the Central
Intelligence Agency komplimented his own executive leadership on the
ticket.
