Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

What I think would be most exciting is a deadlocked convention, which bolts to a totally unexpected dark horse candidate.

My outside tip for the Republicans is Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska. She has been cleaning up Republican sleaze in Juneau, she could do the same in Washington.

God the GOP would have to go into Melt-down to draft an Alaskan, not many electoral college votes there, and particularly as they don't want their sleaze to be cleaned up!

If they can nominate Dick Cheney of Wyoming for Vice President (I know he had to shift his principal home from his Texas property to his Wyoming one, so the Electoral College members from Texas could vote for both him and Bush), then the population of the home state is no longer a relevant factor.

My suggestion was an outside one. Probably outside an igloo in the middle of a blizzard. But to quote Thomas B. Reed of Maine, "they could do worse and they probably will".

Second- choice candidate: Gingrich. Oh wait, what about Cheney?

No you CAN'T nominate Dick Cheney...   He is a self nominating candidate!
