The New Trinity – March 19, 2008

Posted on March 19, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |


While it’s not the Holy Trinity, it may be the New Trinity. Since McCain entered the race for president, these three have been seen together all over the country. Now the whole world is seeing them together in the Middle East. Is John McCain introducing his VP and Secretary of State to the Middle Eastern world? Maybe. I have found no photo ops of McCain with any conservative on this trip. They’ve only been used to capture endorsements, votes and more importantly, funds. The signal that McCain is going ahead with an independent style of governing rather than appeasing conservatives is obvious. Conservatives will be given a seat at the back of Air Force One, if they are even allowed on the plane for appearances sake.

Senator Lieberman’s experience may be tapped by McCain for Sec. of State. He has served as Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and according to his official web site, “remains committed to the Committee’s ongoing investigation into the roots, causes, and solutions for extreme Islamic radicalization. This is the reason he was able to quickly correct McCain when he made his now famous gaffe confusing Sunnis and Shiites. (How could that happen? I mean, everyone in America knows the difference between Sunnis and Shiites and where each group is active. Don’t we?)

He is also a member of the Armed Services Committee where he is Chairman of the Airland Subcommittee and sits on the Subcommittee of Seapower and the Subcommittee on Personnel. The Senate Armed Services Committee is responsible for all matters relating to defense policy of the U.S., including oversight of the Dept. of Defense and the nation’s armed forces.

Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina sits on five committees: Armed Services, Agriculture, Budget, Judiciary and Veterans’ Affairs. These cover a wide range of domestic concerns, making him a possible choice for McCain’s VP. He serves on the following subcommittees of the Armed Services Committee. Personnel as Chairman, Airland, Emerging Threats and Capabilities and Strategic Forces, all of interest to McCain’s pro Iraqi War stance.

While John McCain has made no announcements regarding his list of possibles for VP or any cabinet position, a picture may be worth a thousand words.
