VP Candidate Suggestion
By Robert D. Warner

Dear SitNews Editor:

The recent suggestion for a Democratic Vice Presidential candidate by Mark Neckameyer could likely be a significant improvement over the current ticket of Bush and Cheney, but who wouldn't be? My feeling is that historians will rate Bush and Cheney at the bottom of the list of respected administrations and certainly below the rankings of Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge.

There is a problem with Mr. Neckameyer's idea, however. The United States Constitution requires that candidates for those offices be natural born Americans. That would exclude the person Mr. Nickameyer suggests.

Don"t worry Mark. We can feel certain that there will be a number of outstanding candidates within the Democratic Party that will be willing to serve in the office of Vice President and help clean up the tragic mess of the last 8 years.
