If he picks either of the two mentioned below, will McCain pick Joe Lieberman to "balance" his ticket and offer a "choice" against Obama?

Rumours are circulating that Indiana Senator Evan Bayh is among those being considered for Vice President on the Democratic ticket. Why on earth would Obama select as his vice president, a man that is cut from the Senate cloth of Zionist treason monkey, Joe Lieberman, or AIPAC stooge, John McCain. Does Obama secretly have a death wish. How long does he think he would last with a man like Bayh and his voting record, a heart beat away from the Presidency. Especially when that President once expressed sympathy for Palestinians. Check out Bayh's Senate voting record and you will see that it is likely that Mossad is being mobilized in anticipation of its next major assignment as you read.
In order to cover for his and the crimes of others while in office, he voted to protect United States military personnel and other elected and appointed officials of the United States Government against criminal prosecution by an international criminal court.
He voted to adopt an amendment that expresses the sense of the Congress that the United States should use its military, diplomatic, economic, and intelligence instruments to combat Iranian activities inside Iraq that are designed to destabilize Iraq, and that the United States should officially designate the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of Iran as a foreign terrorist organization and assign it to the list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists.
This of course while the Washington Post reported this:
The Bush administration told Congress last year of a secret plan to dramatically expand covert operations inside Iran as part of a long-running effort to destabilize the country's ruling regime, according to a report published yesterday. The plan allowed up to $400 million in covert spending for activities ranging from spying on Iran's nuclear program to supporting rebel groups opposed to the country's ruling clerics, veteran investigative journalist Seymour Hersh reported in the New Yorker magazine.
Hersh reported that the approval for expanded covert authority was contained in a "Presidential Finding," a highly classified document that lays the legal groundwork for all covert activities by U.S. intelligence officials. The Iranian finding was presented late last year to eight congressional leaders -- the top Democrats and Republicans in the Senate and House, and on the intelligence committees of both chambers -- in keeping with a requirement for congressional notification. In theory, Congress can challenge a proposed covert action by denying funding.
Israel doesn't need to worry about any Senate oversights however, cause Bayh is a member of this committee. We couldn't declare war on Iran fast enough for Senator Bayh. That's why he sponsored Senate resolution 580.
In Senate resolution 580 Senator Bayh teams up with his best war mongering buddy Joe Lieberman again. This resolution effectively authorizes war with Iran by authorizing naval blockades. What more could Israel ask for?
I know Obama thinks he needs a white man on the ticket. But this clearly isn't the right white man. Unless of course he's seeking martyrdom. He is a Muslim you know.
Joe Biden: "I am a Zionist"
March 28, 2007
Presidential hopeful calls Israel "the single greatest strength America has in the Middle East"
Says Jonathan Pollard deserves leniency but not a pardon
In an exclusive Shalom TV interview, US Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-DE) emphatically stated his commitment to the State of Israel, calling the country "the single greatest strength America has in the Middle East."
Senator Biden further stressed that without Israel, one could only imagine how many battleships and troops America would have to station in the Middle East.
Meeting with Shalom TV President Rabbi Mark S. Golub in Washington, DC, the candidate for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination said that it's insulting for any American to suggest that Israel is somehow the cause of the war in Iraq.
"If, tomorrow, peace broke out between Israelis and Palestinians, does anybody think there wouldn't be a full-blown war in Iraq? And, conversely, if Iraq were transported to Mars, does anyone think there would not be terrorism visited upon the Israelis every day?
"So let's get it straight. Israel is not the cause of Iraq. Iraq being settled or not settled has nothing to do with Israel's conduct."
The Senator also expressed a sensitivity and empathy for Israelis who have had to live with terrorism.
"[From 9/11], Americans can taste what it must feel like for every Israeli mother and father when they send their kid out to school with their lunch to put them on a bus, on a bicycle or to walk; and they pray to God that cell phone doesn't ring."
"I am a Zionist," stated Senator Biden. "You don't have to be a Jew to be a Zionist."
Asked about Jonathan Pollard, sentenced to life-imprisonment for giving classified information to the State of Israel, Senator Biden opened the door to leniency, but not a pardon.
"There's a rationale, in my view, why Pollard should be given leniency. But there is not a rationale to say, 'What happened did not happen and should be pardoned.'"
[A transcript of the Shalom TV interview follows]
SHALOM TV: Many Americans believe there's a link between America's war in Iraq and the State of Israel and that if America didn't have such a commitment to the state of Israel, there wouldn't be these problems in Iraq.
What would you say to anyone who's expressed that thought to you?
SENATOR BIDEN: It's bizarre.
When the Baker Commission filed its report saying peace in Israel is related to Iraq, I was the first and only person in Congress to point out [that] if, tomorrow, peace broke out between Israelis and Palestinians, does anybody think there wouldn't be a full-blown war in Iraq?
And, conversely, if Iraq were transported to Mars, does anyone think there would not be terrorism visited upon the Israelis every day?
The difference between now and before 9/11: many Americans can taste what it must feel like for every Israeli mother and father when they send their kid out to school with their lunch to put them on a bus, on a bicycle or to walk; and they pray to God that cell phone doesn't ring.
Every day, every day.
So let's get it straight. Israel is not the cause of Iraq. Iraq being settled or not settled has nothing to do with Israel's conduct.
The second part is: people should understand by now that Israel is the single greatest strength America has in the Middle East.
Imagine our circumstance in the world were there no Israel. How many battleships would there be? How many troops would be stationed?
So I find it not only incorrect, but mildly insulting.
SHALOM TV: In the American Jewish community, there's sensitivity to the plight of Jonathan Pollard.
What should be done now with Jonathan Pollard?
SENATOR BIDEN: If we don't want to play into the argument that Americans who support Israel have dual loyalties, then you can't deal with Pollard. He has to serve his sentence. There's a rationale, in my view, why Pollard should be given leniency. But there is not a rationale to say, "What happened did not happen and should be pardoned."
I was raised by a righteous Christian. My father was a gentle man. He was a white collar worker, high-school educated but a student of history and a devoted supporter of Israel.
My father could not understand how people could [fail to understand] that without an Israel no Jew in the world was safe. He couldn't understand how support [for Israel] could be translated into being un-American.
My worry is that, if I were president, to go and pardon Pollard would make a lie out of the notion that there are certain rules. Period. You cannot give classified information. Period. Even to a friend. If this were great Britain, it would be the same thing.
So the standard has to be maintained, in my view.
SHALOM TV: Have you ever been at a Seder
SENATOR BIDEN: I have.
SHALOM TV: Give us one Seder memory
SENATOR BIDEN: My son married a young woman whose mother and whole family is a very prominent Jewish family in the state of Delaware, the Bergers.
Probably my most poignant Seder memory is not with the Bergers, but what happened right after I came back from meeting Golda Meir [in 1973].
I had predicted that something was going on in Egypt. And I remember people talking about what it meant to them if Israel were actually defeated.
And there is this inextricable tie between culture, religion, [and] ethnicity that most people don't fully understand--that is unique and so strong with Jews worldwide.
When I was a young Senator, I used to say, "If I were a Jew I'd be a Zionist."
I am a Zionist. You don't have to be a Jew to be a Zionist.
The whores at AP once again give us a "fair and balanced" report. Oops, sorry AP, that's a Fox line. It's so easy to get the media sluts confused, they are all so pretty.
Sen. Lieberman Leaving For Georgia Visit
WASHINGTON - Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman left Tuesday for a visit to the Republic of Georgia as speculation continued about his being on Republican John McCain's list of vice presidential prospects.
Lieberman, an independent who caucuses with Senate Democrats, said he was traveling with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., to show support for Georgia in the wake of Russia's recent invasion. They will also visit Poland and Ukraine.
"We are going to Tbilisi, Warsaw and Kyiv to meet with the leaders of these important American allies and to discuss the Russian invasion of Georgia," Lieberman said in a statement announcing the trip. "This is a moment in history when it is vital for the world's democracies to stand in solidarity."
Lieberman and Graham are on the Senate Armed Services Panel and they support McCain, the Arizona senator and presumed Republican nominee for president. McCain has criticized Russia's actions.
"It's important that members of the United States Congress show support and solidarity for these young democracies, particularly in light of the recent aggression against Georgia," Graham said in a statement. "I believe it is in our own national security interests to stop Russia from continuing its aggressive actions against Georgia or threatening other countries in the region."
Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, a Democratic vice presidential prospect, traveled over the weekend to Georgia to meet with President Mikhail Saakashvili.
Lieberman has emerged as one of McCain's strongest backers, often joining him on the campaign trail. Like McCain, he is a strong supporter of the Iraq war.
Lieberman's overseas trip comes amid speculation about vice presidential picks for both parties.
With an eye toward trying to wrestle the post-convention spotlight from Democratic rival Barack Obama, McCain is considering naming his running mate in the few days between when the Democrats leave their convention Denver next week and when the Republicans begin their nominating convention in St. Paul, Minn.
McCain's leading contenders are said to include Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Less traditional choices include former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, an abortion-rights supporter, and Lieberman, who has a long history of backing abortion rights.
