    First rule of a VP select is "do no harm." She did harm with the group McCain needed most to win. But she had the effect of not only driving up the GOP vote, but she turned out an equal amount of Democrats in my view. That's a bungled pick when that happens.

    What you want is someone who maybe gives you a marginal advantage, but doesn't hurt you with anybody. Like a Biden.
