The Swamp

by Mark Silva

It’s time to take some tickets to market, and the folks at the Marist Poll have done just that in the Empire State, treasure trove of traditionally blue electoral votes and home of the senator from New York seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.

Try this, they suggest: A Republican ticket of Sen. John McCain and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. It plays pretty well in New York State against a ticket of Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama:

McCain-Rice: 49 percent.

Clinton-Obama: 46 percent.

Flipping the order of the Democratic “dream team’’ – which most Democrats acknowledge is a non-starter anyway – the Republican team still plays better in New York:

McCain-Rice: 49 percent.

Obama-Clinton: 44 percent.

In fact, that Clinton-Obama ticket plays better among women voters. And that McCain-Rice ticket looks stronger than, say, a McCain-Lieberman ticket – with the bipartisan pair of the senators from Arizona and Connecticut drawing only 40 percent of New York’s voters in a matchup with Clinton-Obama (53 percent) or an Obama-Clinton ticket (49 percent).

Fact is, however, all of the above may be dream-tickets in the minds of Grover Norquist (the Republican conservative pushing the Rice cause) and among Democrats (who, exactly, is pushing the Clinton-Obama team?) But the results are here for the viewing at Marist College’s poll: Download file

The new web format of "The Swamp" is TERRIBLE!!!! So bad I'm not sure I'll be coming back to this site again.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

So sad!!!


I still think she's done a horrible job running the state department, but this is the strongest argument I've seen to date for a McCain-Rice ticket.


Ask Fred Thompson about the polls.


noooooo, please no. He's going for the female and black voters to assure a win. We want Romney. We want Romney. Condoleeza is useless.


Wow I can't believe that any intelligent voter in this country would want Rice anywhere near the Whitehouse. She is a big part of the problems this country faces because of the Bush regime. She could end up being President if something happens to McCain, and then we would be back with the Bush mentality in the Whitehouse. Wow that scares me more the Obama in the Whitehouse.


Obama is our Savior. Barak and Reverend Wright are Right, God D*** america. Now is the time to rally around Barak and Michelle and make them proud! No more so called elections where typical white people vote! And news flash america, Barak is right, your typical white american is a racist! Obama will apologize to our Muslim brothers for arrogant american policies of hate and slavery. Only Obama can forgive an evil nation founded on slavery. We gave cash payments to those Japanese who survived our uprovoked and vicious attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Reparations now for all Africans!


don't worry, these won't be the tickets on either side.

but the Rs would have a better chance at keeping the power.

which is, well, compelling.


Rice is a stain from the Bush regime and could hurt McCain.

Hillary Clinton could hurt Obama. Clinton's alleged election rigging involving Eliot Spitzer and the New York Times might come up and sink that ticket. Try doing a search on these words without quotes "election rigging spitzer clinton" in the search box on youtube.com

None of the above is who most Americans would like to vote for.


The Swamp looks just fine


BEWARE! Obamamania's comments below are fraud - he/she is just a McCain supporter trying to pretend to be a crazed Obama supporter to scare white people out of voting Obama. Nice try there Pinocchio but you can't fool Gepetto. We know exactly what you are made of. Go Obama!


Two liars for the price of one. Such a deal!!! Rice headed Chevron's committee on public policy until she resigned on January 15, 2001, to become National Security Advisor to President George W. Bush. Chevron honored Rice by naming an oil tanker Condoleezza Rice after her, but controversy led to its being renamed Altair Voyager.

She been terrible in the State dept and of course has a few skeletons IN THE CLOSET that make this pair a highly unlikely team. But I never underestimate the foolishness and corruption of our current republican leaders so I guess anything is possible.

Don't be fooled by the hype. Who do you think Condi is actually going to attract to McCain, black people? Against Obama? not a chance! Women? Maybe, but I daresay Clinton has shown an ability to maintain that voting block already and Condi is a question mark. No, I feel pretty confident that once the dust settles on the Democratic nomination process, we will definately see McCains polling numbers drop like a stone. Right now McCain is leading a pretty charmed life and at the same time the Dems are very much committing a murder-suicide on their chances of winning in November.

In other words, let's see these numbers again after the Dem convention, when all guns will be trained on McCain.


Obamamania, if you are an Obama supporter your comments just don't help.
Take a lead from Barak....be positive or be quiet.


obama;s a racist


Thank goodness NY does not constitute 51% of the votes in this Country. Agreed-I can't imagine why anyone would want C. Rice near the Whitehouse. I can't imagine how anyone would want to vote for Mr. 100 year war in Iraq McCain, for that matter.


As National Security Advisor, Rice ignored a PDB warning that bin laden would attack the U.S.

The head of the CIA met with her a few months before 9/11 to warn her that something big was going to happen and ask her to do something about it, and yet she did nothing.

As Secretary of State she’s slept through the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only recently trying to do something about it.

Rice is incompetent. McCain could certainly do better than her.

Incidentally, why is anyone bothering to poll a Clinton-Obama matchup when Obama is clearly the front runner and is miles ahead of Clinton?


As a Muslim originally from India , the last person I want is barack obama. His father was muslim , but Barack obama is a christian, I dont like that at all. I think Mccain will be better, at least he wont cut down outsourcing like Obama...I admit Obama is the most intelligent and inspiring of the three, but we have to think of globalization


To obamamania -- you clearly have no connection with reality. What a great place this would be if you and your friends could put all your energy into something meaningful.
2. Anyone who is not on-board with Condy Rice has never read her resume -- google it, I dare you.


Dream on, Condoleeza-Lies-a-Lot.


You will never see a McCain Rice Ticket for one reason. As soon as McCain calls Condi a "trolip" she will Slap the Shit out of the "straight talker". That mat be construed as elder abuse and Condi may be forced to take anger management. Condi is catching the first thing smoking back to school after leaving Washington.


There are two problems with this concept. First, polls of this nature are moot at this time- Obama has shown that he will increase his standing in the polls as time goes on. Second, Ms. Rice won't be able to run for VP- she will be in court being tried for treason or something similar, along with the rest of the Bush administration. Breaking the Constitution, Geneva Convention, lying to Congress and to the American people, etc, has its consequences.


Don't believe this poll for a minute. NY turning RED? For McCain and Connie, a guaranteed Bush 3rd term? Endless war and economic recession? No way! Methinks Marist College better consult with some real pollsters before spreading drivel like this. I'm surprised it has been reprinted without some refutation.

That mania dude needs to chill. Mc-SAME and Con-me, dont have a snowball's chance! Somebody is drinking or just plain ole making it up! Hillary must be the pollster.


"2. Anyone who is not on-board with Condy Rice has never read her resume -- google it, I dare you." I lied about my resume too - - Love, Condi.


Steven G Erickson, did you not hear about the beating of a teenage girl that was taped to put on utube? You can put anything on utube, doesn't make it worth reading. Any thing you read on utube should be flushed down the nearest toilet as the c**p that it is. I have never pulled that site up and see no reason to do so now.


Of course Condi would be a great pick. Great personal story (coming from the segregated south), is a regular at Church, sat on corporate boards, headed Standford and it's near billion dollar budget (don't know that it was that much, but it was substantial)with great success, and obviously has great diplomatic credentials.

Although from the Bush White House, she improbably enjoys national favorbility above 50%. People trust her intentions and qualifications.

The fact that she hasn't run for office is actually a great strength. She can take policy positions that compliment or balance McCain's.

With Rice on the ticket, even more independents will side with McCain (especially those troubled by Rev.Wright). For this reason, Florida would go McCain for sure. Florida also has one of if not the fastest growing black Republican bases in the country (there has been a strong effort by the state party to reach out, and Gov.Crist has been hailed as "Florida's first black governor").The only person who could better secure Florida would be Crist.

Also, she actually does make California seem more realistic. Even if Repubs lose it,they still would have forced the Dems to focus more money and resources in the state.

Lastly, she is black and female. In my opinion, gender and race shouldn't be a factor when deciding qualifications, but the historic significance and electoral possibilities are undeniable. While most people may consider her being black as more of an advantage, it's true that nationwide black support for Obama would barely budge (not including the Florida factor). Her being a woman, however is HUGE, especially given the poll numbers indicating that MANY Clinton supporters would defect from the party and vote McCain if she's not nominated (IF...I ment WHEN).

I liked Mitt before for economic reasons, but he has a lot going against him and I'm now not so sure that his being on the ticket would reassure voters about McCain and the economy; it may actually undermine him by admitting his weakness. In Florida, voters actually trusted McCain more than they did Romney on the economy. I bet your sick of the Florida references, but...

Charlie Crist was my other favorite. With a great ability to unite and as the best retail politician in the nation, independents would eat him up. He gives you Florida. and his green policies and other centrist views would play well in California and other purple states. But that strength may also be his weakness; Conservatives would LOATHE his being on the ticket no doubt.

So in my mind, the choice is clear: Condi's positives would outweigh her negatives and her selection as VP wouldn't substantially upset any of the wings of the party while also appealing to to the center.


Walter, miles ahead of her, huh. Just another example of a man's problem with measuring things.


America, pls vote for the right candidate

Jim reality check. She should have her buck teeth pulled out with a rusty pair of pliers for the war cries she has commited. She'll have a future as VP with McCain because she lies real good!!!


Rice has been criticised for her involvement in the George W. Bush administration both in the United States and abroad. Protesters have sought to exclude her from appearing at schools such as Princeton University and Boston College, which prompted the resignation of an adjunct professor at Boston. There has also been an effort to protest her public speeches abroad.

Views within the black community

Rice's approval ratings from January 2005 to September 2006
Rice and Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer participate in a news conference at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, May 23, 2007.Rice's ratings saw decreases following a heated battle for her confirmation as Secretary of State and following Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. Rice's rise within the George W. Bush administration initially drew a largely positive response from many in the black community. In a 2002 survey, then National Security Advisor Rice was viewed favorably by 41% of black respondents, but another 40% did not know Rice well enough to rate her and her profile remained comparatively obscure. As her role increased, some black commentators began to express doubts concerning Rice's stances and statements on various issues. In 2005, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson asked, "How did [Rice] come to a worldview so radically different from that of most black Americans?"

Other writers have also noted what they perceive to be a distance between Rice and the black community. The Black Commentator magazine described sentiments given in a speech by Rice at a black gathering as "more than strange — they were evidence of profound personal disorientation. A black woman who doesn’t know how to talk to black people is of limited political use to an administration that has few black allies." When Rice invoked the civil rights movement to clarify her position on the invasion of Iraq, Margaret Kimberley, another writer for The Black Commentator, felt that her use of the rhetoric was "offensive." Stan Correy, an interviewer from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, characterized many blacks involved with civil rights and politics as viewing this rhetoric as "cynical." Rice was also described by Bill Fletcher, Jr., the former leader of the TransAfrica Forum, a foreign policy lobbying organization in Washington, D.C., as "very cold and distant and only black by accident." In August 2005, American musician, actor, and social activist Harry Belafonte, who serves on the Board of TransAfrica, referred to blacks in the Bush administration as "black tyrants." Belafonte's comments received mixed reactions.

To all the Obamamaniacs posting here today: Please know that his first name is spelled Barack, not Barak. You look so foolish.


A ticket better than McCain - Rice is McCain and Colin Powell. He is the only one from the Bush administration who has managed to maintain his credibility and integrity.


I WOULD LOVE TO SEE RICE ON THE TICKET.

Then she would have to answer questions about her complicity in lying to start this war.

HAve you ever seen a less visible and less accountable Sec. of State?


I don't know why everyone is so shocked. I grew up in Upstate NY, now live in the Midwest, and I have every confidence that Senator McCain will do very well with voters in NY, PA, MI, OH, WI, MN, NJ and a host of other states where actions mean a whole lot more than words. The Obama cult members will regret demonizing Geraldine Ferraro and deluding themselves into thinking that they are running against Bush by labeling Senator McCain as McSame - voters are lot smarter than the brain-dead members of the Obama cult.

They know an apologist for anti-American racist like his spiritual advisor like his Reverend Wright. They know someone who is a hypocrite and posing as a change agent when they tolerate the corruption that is pervasive in the Democratic Party of IL and the Blago/Stroger/Daley/Jones ethically challenged leadership that is so inept, dismissive and incompetent toward addressing the concerns of voters.

They know that the thin resume of Obama doesn't live up to the challenge of Kennedy's "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." To Obama they are just words - JUST WORDS - to be used in a campaign speech, with no record or accomplishments that merit giving him the most challenging job in the nation. And no record to live up Kennedy’s challenge.

They will judge these candidates on their character, not the color of their skin, and when it comes to character - Senator McCain stands head and shoulders above Obama with a life time of experiences that show he is willing to share in the sacrifices to better this nation, and landmark legislation to prove his bi-partisan approach to solving the most difficult issues is more than just a campaign promise. Obama hasn't got a record to compare - all he has is youth and the empty, disproved, and disillusioning rhetoric that he can be a post-racial politician.

It won't fly in Queens, Long Island, or in Upstate - that is why he has peeked in NY polls - and why he will not be elected President. He doesn't deserve to be.

And Obama wants to sit down with these people and have a nice chat?? WTF?

Wake up Obamacons. Wake up before its too late. You are not getting sleepy, you are snapping out of it...when I clap my hands...now.


Go ahead, keep underestimating the dems chances this fall. Do so at your peril. This is a democrats' year. Mark my words.


As usual, the Trib censors allow racism from its loony left ilk as well as complete mean-spirtedness:

Posted by: Logic Prisoner | April 9, 2008 3:09 PM

I wonder if the Tribune censors would allow such comments about Barack Obama?


I don't understand, children are losing there lives in this war. Our ecomony has gone to the dogs and you want McCain and Rice. Give Obama a chance to show what he can do for the country. George Bush showed you want he was about.

That's like saying "I've never read this book because I know it's full of lies and I know it's full of lies because I never read it."

WAKE UP PEOPLE! AMERICA NEEDS HILARRY CLINTON! DON'T LET REPUBLICANS STEEL THIS ELECTION. NEVAR FORGET WHAT BUSH HAS DONE TO US. OBAMA IS A RACIST. WE NEED REEL DEMOCRATS.

HILARRY 08!


Wow, this poll really brought out the nutcase leftists and against whom? Nice, competent, accomplished Secretary Rice! And who ever said liberals were color blind? There isn't one person on the present political scene who can match Ms. Rice's record for achievement over barriers that would have deterred anyone else.
Go McCain-Rice.


"THAT WOMAN SPEAKS"

WHAT HAS CONDI DONE FOR YOU?

WHAT DIPLOMATIC ACHIEVEMENT HAS CONDI SHOWN FOR YOU?

WHAT MEMO DID CONDI READ TO "MAKE YOU A SAFER AMERICA?"

WHAT IS AN "AUGMENTATION OF THE WAR"

NO WHAT IS THAT?

WHAT BOOB IS SHE REFERRING TO?

DIDN'T SHE STAND BEFORE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND SAY "THERE WERE NO PRISONERS BEING RENDERED IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES "WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE"?

WHO STALLED THE 911 COMMISSION WITH "I DIDN'T READ THE PRESIDENTIAL BRIEFS JUST DAYS BEFORE 911 HAPPENED?

WHO STALLED THE 911 COMMISSION FROM REVEALING THE "TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH"

WHO FAILED YOU DURING "KATRINA"

WHO WAS SHOPPING FOR SHOES DURING "KATRINA"

WHO HAS AVOIDED "CONGRESS" SINCE HER INCEPTION AS "SECRETARY OF STATE"
CONDI RICE.

SO WHAT CAN SHE BRING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OTHER THAN A "FAILED, PHONY EXECUTIVE BRANCH OF THE VICE PRESIDENCY.

BREACHED AND COMPROMISED WHITE HOUSE BY THE LIKES OF KARL ROVE, DAVID ADDINGTON, FRED FIELDING, JOSH BOLTON, HARRIET MIERS?

WHO LEFT EVERY WOMAN SERVING IN A "CIVILLIAN CAPACITY" SAFETY OUT THE WINDOW AND THE HANDS OF THE LAW!

CONDI RICE.

A MERE PHONY ACHIEVER AS OF AUGUST 6, 2001.

IT MUST OF BEEN THE "BLACK PRISONS" THAT KEPT HER PREOCCUPIED ALL THESE DAYS IN OFFICE.

YES, SHE'S THE ONE. SHE IS ALL SHE CAN BE BUT...JUST DON'T BLAME IT ON THE SHOES.


Rice is a useless pawn. She presided over the two biggest intel failures in the history of our once great country.


Condi's contemptuous demeanor would be a perfect match for McCain's short fuse.


You mean Condamnesia Rice???!!!
Reverend Wright would disapprove.


The results of this so-called poll are the strongest evidence to date of the ubiquity of the Dumbing Down of America. Way to go...

Rev. William Hayashi


To McCainocrat:

Wow, you truly display some sort of arrogance to spew that Senator Obama doesn't deserve the Presidency. I am far from a Obama supporter, but the blatant arrogance you displayed, when in actuality neither Senator Clinton nor Senator McCain deserve the Presidency. Senator Clinton apparently suffers from your Mid-Atlantic states’ arrogance to lie to voters and shrug off her apparent lie, as a misquote. She uses racism to her advantage and the two groups voting for her actually oppose each other; blue collar whites and Latinos. Senator McCain flipped political positions to get the nomination. 8 years ago he was against Bush and his economic plans and the no child left behind, now he and Bush are pals, he supports troop increases, Patriot Acts. And never mind his inability to remember key religious factions in Iraq or mention his skin cancer issues. Senator Obama and Senator McCain should be the Republican Party dream ticket. Senator Obama should switch parties, because these two men lie to tell voters things they think voters want hear, unlike Senator Clinton who lies just for the sake it. So I guess Senator Clinton is really representative of the Mid-Atlantic states residents’, a place full of arrogant liars.


Rice was an incompetent national security adviser. She is a lousy secretary of state and a miserable manager of her bureaucracy. She knows nothing about domestic issues. So, naturally, she's a perfect Republican candidate for anything!


Steve Forbes and John McCain would be a dream ticket better than Rice-McCain. John McCain has the war and leadership experience and Steve Forbes has the economic experience. Now that's a good combo


As a legal immigrant of 52 years and a staunch conservative Christian Republican, it would be a sin for me to vote for a guy whom I have labeled for my satisfaction and due to my background, truly as refried Hitler, period, who knows nothing more than shoot to the world to pieces. My Republican party is now the party of the evil of Imperialism, while it considers Ron Paul, the only one who truly speaks for the Founding Fathers as leprosy is treated . Yes, the Republican party is taking America to hell like all other Empires, with George W. the greatest liar ever who has set things in motion while claiming Jesus as his hero. Oh yes, good old Satan smiling from ear to ear while Christianity is shown to the world as evil. Yes America is the mass grave of 50+ million of unborn babies and the buther shops murder daily theousands more. So what Goes Mr. Beck?


Once again, America dosn't really have a choice,
However McCain-Rice would be the best of whats
left!


The only reason Rice has been 'useless' is for the mere fact that she is a woman. To every other country in this world except us and the UK, women are not respected and are treated as second-class citizens. She cannot get anything accomplished if no one will give her a chance because of their culture and cultural bias. One reason why Hillary should not be president. She would be unable to accomplish anything. No other country would respect us for having a female leading this nation. That is because they do not believe women should have any type of power. It's unfortunate, but oh so true. And definitely something these 'polls' and 'reporters' need to address!


I hope all you people actually read between the lines..listen to what the candidates are really saying and know what there policies mean. We all know that we want little government..but the policies of Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton, so called progressive democrats, which in reality is a democratic word for communism(socialism) style government they want to create. They would socialize medicine and raise taxes on a already strained middle class and tax the rich for working hard to get where they are today to give money to the poor..People have to understand you have to WORK HARD to be successful in life and you can't just be given things or you won't work at all. The government of barrack & hillary want to give more money to provide more food stamps and things of that sort..sounds great yeah! BUT all its really doing is creating a socialist state...mark my words..if barrack obama is elected president...America will fall. Yes bush has bad policies are bad but we can't just run around like chickens with their head cut off and vote for the first thing that sounds good to us... READ THE FINE PRINT... PS i would never vote for obama. It's bull crap for him to say he has never heard his pastor say God D*** America or talk about the white man oppressing blacks. He's been to that mans church for 20 years!!! Statistically,... obama has heard the pastor say something. OBAMA is a liar!!!! Only one i'd vote for on the democratic side would have been Edwards... I'm still not bought from any of the candidates on the republican side either.. I think McCain would be a strong leader but he needs a good VP...I was thinking along the lines of Romney, Huckabee, GLENN BECK, maybe Powell---Sincerely from the thoughts of a 18 yr old who is watching all of the adults sell out their childrens lives to socialist/rascist pigs.


ELECTION. NEVAR FORGET WHAT BUSH HAS DONE TO US. OBAMA IS A RACIST. WE NEED REEL DEMOCRATS.

HILARRY 08!

Learn to spell, you left-wing loon!


Extremely intelligent, former Provost at Stanford (not Arkansas A&M), savvy, highly motivated, successful Secretary of State, highly vetted....what more could one want in a running mate for John MCain, our next president, than one who can bring so much to the table...compare some of the others. I'dbe ecstatic at a McCain-Rice ticket. It would definitely blow away a Clinton/Obama ticket, where neither has either knowledge, experience, or integrity. God help us if.....Obama's beggest accomplishment is being elected from South Chicago and Hillary's is that she stayed married to the "slick one" despite the navy blue dress.


It will be absolutely hysterical if Rice does indeed run with McCain as his VP, and they win in November. This would drive the far-left liberals absolutely nuts!
