McCain Says No to Vice Presidential Bid In 2008

(AP) In an appearance Sunday at a fund-raiser for a local New York candidate, the Republican [Sen. John McCain] seemed to humorously rule out ever accepting a vice presidential post.

"I spent all those years in a North Vietnamese prison camp, kept in the dark, fed scraps, why the hell would I want to do that all over again?" he said, the New York Daily News reported in Monday editions.

He told the newspaper that he was seriously considering a 2008 bid. As he has before, McCain said he will wait until after the 2006 election to decide about his political future.

Well, it looks like my Clinton/McCain predictions are just more dust in the wind. I just wonder if McCain thinks he would get the Republican nomination this time around by himself?
