The Corner posts an interesting email...
"How about Jim Talent as a possible McCain running mate? I have not heard anyone mention his name. The former senator from Missouri and 6 term Congressman is a very reliable, smart conservative with solid credentials. He narrowly lost a governor's race and senate re-election campaign in Missouri. I recall a thoughtful piece Talent wrote for NR last year calling for tying US military spending to a percentage of GDP and increasing troop levels to better prepare for war in the 21st century.
Talent is 51 years old and, unlike Bobby Jindal or even Mitt Romney, can't be labeled too young, inexperienced or a political lightweight. Talent would provide more "gravitas" to the McCain ticket than Jindal, Romney or a "non politician" and would still allow the McCain campaign to contrast the "experience" issue with Obama. If McCain were to pick a running mate with little or no time in elected office, McCain would lose leverage against Obama on the issue of being "experienced and prepared."Talent would provide McCain with a relatively youthful and competent running mate and would be popular with supply-siders, pro-lifers, and others in the GOP base. At the same time, Talent does not come across as a partisan GOP hack, so he would be appealing to independent voters and could help McCain in some of the Midwestern swing states. "

1 John 4:13-15 (NIV)
Now... let's see what this map looks like compared to the 1968 Presidential election by states and counties... if you'll recall, the radical segregationist George Wallace ("Segregation now, Segretation forever"..) ran as an independent during that election (he was a Democrat) and was the beginning of the end of Democrat domination of the south and the rust belt (unfortunately many of those voters joined the Republican party).
NOT saying the blue-collar voter is anything but a populist voting group, BUT, it is true that Wallace carried alot of votes all throughout the country including the Rust/Iron Belt.
Now lets move on to comparing Clinton's 2008 primary voters, the blue collars with George Wallace's 1968 voters. Since the Clintons seem hellbent on making this campaign about her winning "white voters", let's see who she's winning, shall we?
