John McCain said Wednesday he thinks “it might be wise” for President Barack Obama to replace Vice President Joe Biden on the ticket with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“I think it might be wise to do that,” Sen. McCain (R-Ariz.) said on Fox News, responding to a suggestion that Sarah Palin made on Tuesday night. “But it’s not going to happen…If I were Hillary Clinton, I’m not sure I’d want to be on that team.”

This ... from the man who inflicted Snow Snooki™ upon us all.
This ... from the man who said Palin was a better VP choice than Romney.
This ... from the man who suspended his campaign due to the financial crisis, then un-suspended it, floundering about like an Upper Class Twit (video below the Orange Squiggle of Power) attempting to remove a bra.

So, thanks for the advice, John, but the guy who cleaned your clock in 2008 probably has a much better idea of who he needs on his ticket than you do - or could ever have.

Oh, and BTW, McCain's rationale was the horrific blunder Biden made using the word "chains" in reference to Romney. Faux Outrage - he haz it.

This, despite all efforts to the contrary, will not be good news for John McCain.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
