I posted a much longer take on this before, but I wanted to add to it. I've read elsewhere that McCain should not pick Romney because he's rich and it wouldn't do to have two rich guys on the ticket when foreclosures are so high. I totally disagree, but only if the VP is an insanely rich woman.
Meg is worth more than one billion dollars. She could buy and sell Romney four or five times. I think McCain ought to go totally over the top on this one and just jam the "hate the rich" nonsense right down their throats. Meg's earned every penny of it, created a wonderful product, eBay, and tens of thousands of jobs, too. Here's my fantasy quote from her on the campaign trail:
"My idea of accomplishment is to create wealth and jobs for Americans. Senator Biden and Obama think accomplishment is to talk about it."
Imagine the ads you could make comparing Meg's accomplishments with theirs. Joe Biden held hearings. Barack Obama hung out with racist and anarchist lunatics while accomplishing nothing. Meg led eBay to what it is today. Hmm. I wonder who's done more.
