Watch Giuliani on American Morning Thursday.
(CNN) – Rudy Giuliani, former presidential candidate turned John McCain supporter, said Thursday that a Democrat could conceivably occupy the number 2 spot on the Republican presidential ticket.
“The reality is either way you might see something like that,” the former New York City mayor told CNN’s Kiran Chetry on American Morning when asked about talk of Sen. Barack Obama choosing a Republican like Sen. Chuck Hagel as his running mate.
Giuliani said he has not spoken with McCain about possibly choosing a Democratic running mate. “But, if you’re asking me is it possible in this day and age that you could have a ticket like that? I think so.”
While he conceded that he could think of “a couple” Democrats who might fit the bill as potential McCain VP’s, Giuliani said the decision was ultimately McCain’s.
Watch: Giuliani on American Morning
Is Lieberman still technically considered a Demcorat?
I don't think anyone is all that fooled by Grimer Lieberman hissing into the ear of the old senile King McCain of Rohan.
Go for it Rudy Giuliani. VP Rudy Giuliani sound good. GO Obama
Is it possible? Yes.
Is it likely? Definitely not.
The Republican Party elders would NEVER allow
such a thing to happen, regardless of whether or
not it would help McCain.
On the other hand, the Democratic Party wouldn't
halt Obama from selecting a Republican running
mate. Obama is all about working across the aisle
and strengthening government – no matter WHO
the aide comes from.
Giuliani is merely saying that its "possible" because
he doesn't want to make the GOP look like a bunch
Like I said, its possible, but highly unlikely.
How about Hillary Clinton? As an ardent supporter of Hillary during the primaries, I could take Hillary's #2 slot on a ticket with McCain, a proven, intelligent, experienced #1 (gonna vote for him, anyway - no way is Obama ready to lead!). BUT HILLARY #2 WITH OBAMA - NEVER!
Yea, two old rich men who could care less about the poor. Out of touch and too old to relate the young.
The only reason Hagel would consider it is that he's leaving his Senate seat. Any politician with aspirations of continuing their political career would never consider this – especially no democrat in this election. And LIEberman is an independent now, so he doesn't count.
If he's talking about Lieberman, it doesn't count.
LIEberman is no longer a democrat if that’s who you mean. And he got OWNED by Kerry on ‘meet the press’ last week.
Really, please name one Democrat who would consider such a folly?
Talk about meaningless change!!
This will not unite voters you fool. But what you do seek is the best of both GOP and Democrats...sadly the only place those ideals exist is within the Libertarian Party.
Come on over Rudy–let the force be with you!!!
Libertarians 2008–if you can't stand the way things are and want real, relevant, and practical change.
Check our agenda–join us in recreating our government and its priorities.
Bob Barr 2008...out of your lives and out of your wallets!!
Lol. As long as its not Giuliani, I'm good. This is a guy who has won "Mr. Irrelevant 7 yrs running
Another desperate attempt I might say. I guess they figure that if someone like Sen. Hillary Clinton – by some chance – was chosen, her adoring fans would vote for Mr. McCain. Pretty interesting! (Just my view).
I dunno. But I do know there will be a Democrat in the White House.
I'm originally from NYC, and I get back there every now and again
I have to say that I was VERY impressed over the lack of graffiti on my ride from the airport back when Rudy was Mayor – also noticed no homeless people forcefully washing the windshield with filthy rags back then
...It was kind of a return home in an alternate universe :)
That would be one way to get the press coverage your party needs. On the other hand....that would piss off a lot of those so called "christians" in your party.
I have an idea... pick Paris.
Oh, BUT Hillary as McCain's VP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TALK ABOUT AN UNBEATABLE TICKET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HE will still look the the other VP's, Rich white and conservative, this is a gimmick, McCain is going to tell so many lies no one will know where he stands
It won't happen. The conservative wing of the republican party would riot.
Deception, misdirection and propaganda, that is what the Republican do.This is again simply an attempt by the McCain campaign to confuse the issues and keep attention focused on something other than what they should be focused on.
Yeah he most certainly meant Lieberman but he has been a democrat in a while so i'm not sure he really counts
Even though Obama is an idiot. There is no way he picks a bigger IDIOT like Hagel as his running mate.
PLEASE LORD! LET MCSAME PICK THIS CRAVEN TOOL! IT WILL BE LIKE CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST!!
John McCain could pick Jesus Christ as his VP running mate, and I, as a Christian, would still refuse to vote for him. John McCain = More War, Worse Economy, Same Results. VOTE OBAMA.
HILLARY CLINTON. LOL
Maybe McOld wrinkley guy should pick Paris Hilton. A recent poll stated 68% felt that she was more effective than McCain in getting the message across.
