JOHN MCCAIN'S SECRET BLACK RUNNING MATE

John McCain is being heralded as the great independent Republican candidate – the only possible scenario for a Republican victory – Republican leadership and the rank and file should be more grateful.

McCain’s choice is clear – to win voters in blue and red states, he needs to pick a running mate that answers these issues: age, independence, the economy, and race.Yes, race is a key factor this year – it is the evolution of the species on display – we have moved forward and will nominate a person of color to be President in one of the two major parties in the United States.

Republicans need to answer that challenge, people are hungry for representation. There are choices that can show the viability of Black Republicans in leadership positions - former Oklahoma Congressman J.C. Watts, Jr., or Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, even retired General Colin Powell General, Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The beleaguered middle, lower-middle, and working class want to believe in their future – their financial future and the security of this nation during these challenging times.  John McCain is the only candidate who can be the independent candidate – and walk the bipartisan waters.  People want help with the economic challenges of these times - they do not want their leader pandering to the extreme right wing of his party - that offends the vast majority of voters. 

McCain must answer the survival range of concerns for all voters, economic in nature within the fight against global terrorism - then he can be the one Republican who can reach the middle ground within his party to choose his running mate - and give voters a choice that matters to all ages, classes and color that believe in America's future.

John McCain's running mate needs to be the face of the future of America.
