I cannot vote for McCain if his running mate is completely unqualified because there is a chance, however remote, that he'd die. His running mate must be minimally qualified to be president.
Actually, I like seeing new players on the political scene, and I would argue that the usual list of "qualified" Washington insiders, many of whom have been in one public office or another for decades, collectively are the root causes of most of our problems. While I didn't consider Harry Browne or Michael Badnarik to be as experienced as the Republicans and Democrats against whom they ran, I still voted for them in previous elections because their politics were more closely in line with mine, and because they were outsiders.
