On Fox News tonight, Democratic pundit, Michael Brown, for some reason alluded to the reported offer by John Kerry to John McCain for McCain to be Kerry’s vice presidential running mate four years ago.
I think he was trying to insinuate a more extreme liberal position for John McCain … sort of like … “Let’s put some doubts into the minds of those ultra conservative Republicans.”
Let’s also remember that Abraham Lincoln offered command of the Army of the Potomac to Robert E. Lee. It just didn’t happen.
I also suspect that Lee gave more consideration to Lincoln’s offer before saying, “No” than McCain gave to Kerry’s offer before, likewise, saying, “No thanks”.
Let me further say that this analogy is, in no way, intended to suggest that John McCain shares Lee’s views. The analogy is simply made, by an ignorant Southerner, to point out that sometimes offers are made that “Just ain’t gonna’ happen”.
