It would be a good ticket specially if the election is about families, taxes and a strong foreign policy. What else could the election be about?
As for the format, let me say again that I want reporters asking questions. FOX News did a great job during their debate because they had "grown ups" asking real questions.
Bring back the professionals!
Last night, CNN tried the "You Tube" format and I don't like it.
Last, but not least, CNN needs to get out of the debate business until someone gets fired for stupid behavior. My friend Rick Moran had the best analysis:
"CNN, as part of its Republican debate with YouTube, failed to mention that retired general Keith Kerr, who announced he was gay after his retirement from the Army, is a member of Hillary Clinton’s "LGBT Americans For Hillary Steering Committee."
Not only did General Kerr ask the question via a YouTube video, but he was also present in the audience, and got to ask the candidates for a "straight answer" (pardon the pun).
This is either:
P. S. I should add that it was Pres. Clinton who signed the "don't tell" policy regarding homosexuals serving openly in the military.

Finger pointing "(Fans are losers in NFL Network impasse)
"Redacted," gave us the Christmasy theme of Iraqi rape starring U.S. troops as rapists.
It drew just $10,039 over the Thanksgiving weekend, according to BoxOfficeMojo, and $34,000 at its open.
"A Mighty Heart," depicting terrorists' war on the West as "understandable," was a dud.
"Syriana," portraying U.S. intelligence officers as crooks in bed with Big Oil, also fared poorly.
Most Americans know that US soldiers do not rape 14 year old girls. Why? Because these young men are our sons, our neighbors and the kids that we watched played football on Friday nights.
Hollywood struck out big time. They deserve every drop of red ink attached to the financial statements of these pathetic films!
What's war good for? Well, how about ending slavery, fascism, Hitler and communism. And soon we can add Islam extremists.
Good poster. Good message.

"Over on the Democratic side, meanwhile, they've got a woman, a black, a Hispanic, a preening metrosexual with an angled nape – and they all think exactly the same.
They all sound the same to me, too! The Christmas album analogy is perfect!
Look at the Republican field. There are differences on abortion and guns. Are there any on the Dems's side?
There are differences over Iraq? Are there any on the Dems' side?
The Dems represent the left wing base that took over the party in '72 and has led them to so many defeats. Who else is on that stage?
Diversity is not about being a woman, black or someone who conveniently remembers that he is Hispanic.
Wouldn't it be nice to have a Dem like Lieberman on the war, or a Dem who is opposed to abortion, or other issues?
Why do they argue about stupid things? (Wife Or Child -- Which One Has The Best Foreign-Policy Experience?) Because no one is proposing big ideas on the Dems' side! It's a really a shame to see what the once mighty Dems have turned into!

It was great Thanksgiving holiday!
My uncle and aunt celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. It was great to see cousins and friends.
The Aggies beat Texas! The Longhorns had a great comeback and got within a TD.
Iraq continues to look better and better:
"THE NEWS from Iraq has been so encouraging in recent months that last week even the mainstream media finally sat up and took notice. Can the Democratic Party be far behind?" (Let's hear it for good news from Iraq)
The shoppers went to the malls and shut up the doom and gloom experts:"Malls and stores were jammed for pre-dawn discounts on everything from TVs to toys on the official start of Christmas shopping as consumers shrugged off worries about rising gas prices and falling home values." (Black Friday Euphoria Boosts Economic Hopes)
There is more good news:
"The nation's retailers had a robust start to the holiday shopping season, according to results announced Saturday by a national research group that tracks sales at retail outlets across the country.
According to ShopperTrak RCT Corp., which tracks sales at more than 50,000 retail outlets, total sales rose 8.3 percent to about $10.3 billion on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, compared with $9.5 billion on the same day a year ago.
ShopperTrak had expected an increase of no more than 4 percent to 5 percent." (Retailers Post Robust Start to Holidays)
It leads a rational person, like our friend Captain Ed, to ask the obvious question: Where is the coverage for the good news? (Bad Economy? Not So Far, Although Good Luck Reading About It)
After all, consumers did a good job of shopping and putting to rest all of the talk about the coming economic depression! The airports and highways were crowded with people travelling and spending money! So much for the coming Great Depression!
Let's save the best for last. Americans are not watching stupid anti-war movies:
"While the public is staying away in droves from “Rendition," “Lions for Lambs" and “In the Valley of Elah," audiences are really avoiding “Redacted," De Palma's picture about US soldiers who rape a 14-year-old Iraqi girl, then kill her and her family.
The message movie was produced by NBA Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who insisted on deleting grisly images of Iraqi war casualties from the montage at the film's end.
Cuban offered to sell the film back to De Palma at cost, but the director was too smart to go for that deal.
“Redacted" - which “could be the worst movie I've ever seen," said critic Michael Medved -took in just $25,628 in its opening weekend in 15 theaters, which means roughly 3,000 people saw it in the entire country." (DE PALMA IRAQ FLICK BOMBS)
It's really bad when Air America has a larger audience than De Palma's movie!
Moral of the story: Make a stupid movie about US soldiers raping a 14 year old girl and no one will show up.
Most Americans are smart enough to pick up on De Palma's anti-war point. This is not a movie. This is De Palma trying to get through Hollywood what his side can not win on the ballot box!
Want to fill the theatres like the malls? Make a movie that the country wants to watch, such as one that shows how US soldiers have built schools and done great things in Iraq. It's not about propaganda. It's about the truth!
So the malls were full. My uncle & aunt celebrated a wonderful anniversary. And De Palma is going to lose his shirt over a stupid movie!
It was indeed a great weekend! It does not get any better than that!
