    The question is two-fold, four parts. On the basis of one of the candidate's choices, how would a particular choice for VP shift you from one side of the fence to the other?

    In a positive way?
    1) Obama picks ___________, you shift from McCain's camp.
    2) McCain's picks ______________, you shift from Obama's camp.

    In a negative way?
    3) Obama picks _______________, you vote for McCain.
    4) McCain picks ______________, you vote for Obama.

    Or, you can answer with no running mate will make me change my vote.

    In a positive way?
    1) Obama picks Howard Stern, you shift from McCain's camp.
    2) McCain picks Mary-Louise Parker, you shift from Obama's camp.

    In a negative way?
    3) Obama picks Mitch Albom, you vote for McCain.
    4) McCain picks Marty Schottenheimer, you vote for Obama.

    If Obama picks Hillary Clinton as his running mate, I'm voting for McCain.

    None can. No way in hell would my leftist self vote for someone as anti-female as John McCain.

    If Obama could have chosen Mark Warner, I'd have voted for him.

    I don't think there's someone I'd switch sides for. Too much riding on the Supreme Court.

    I echo both SC and Diabeetus. Nothing would make me change my vote.

    I'm undecided, but I don't think the running mate will factor too much in my decision. Although if McCain chose Huckabee that would be a negative in my book.

    If it was Clinton vs. the 2000 McCain, I might be able to be swayed if McCain chose a compelling VP.

    This McCain vs. Obama? I don't think there's anything either of them could do from now 'til November to make me change my vote. Obama earned my vote a long, long time ago.

    Hell, I'd have to have a side from which to switch.

    I would not vote for McCain if he were the last presidential candidate on Earth.
