RUSH: Ann in Malvern, Pennsylvania. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush.
CALLER: Hi. It's an honor to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: I'm a longtime listener and first-time caller, and my question is, don't you think a woman VP for McCain would really help him win?
RUSH: I have seen today that Kay Bailey Hutchison is moving up the McCain list. MSNBC today said that the short list is Tim Pawlenty, Rudy, Lieberman, and Tom Ridge. Now, there are a bunch of different factions in the McCain camp leaking their preferences. Two weeks ago, MSNBC was reporting that it was practically Romney, it was sewn up and it was done. As for a woman, why? Why do you think that's the case?
CALLER: Because of the Hillary supporters. I mean that's half the population who might feel not listened to. A core.
RUSH: Yeah, I'm looking at the clock. I don't have the time I need --
CALLER: What about the governor of Alaska?
RUSH: A lot of people like her, a lot of people like her. I've got no problem with the gender aspect of this, it's a different analysis.
