GLENN: Oh, jeez. All right, here's our number, 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. What we're going to do is we're going to do a draft pick, and you can pick your candidate. Are we just doing Obama today or are we doing Obama and McCain?
STU: I think we'll do Obama. Supposedly his pick is going to come tomorrow or the next day.
GLENN: So you get to pick, obviously the first one in, you know. You get the pick of the litter, and the one who picks the candidate that Obama picks, we'll give you something from the web store.
STU: I'm going to lobby here for the listeners. I know you don't care about
GLENN: One of everything from the web store? One of everything?
STU: Now I'm lobbying against you and against the listeners. It should be something in between.
GLENN: What a flip flopper. I don't care. You put the package together. They can pick whatever they want.
STU: It should be a good package.
GLENN: Fine, fine.
STU: Why are you trying to shut down the listeners?
GLENN: I'm saying give them one of everything from the website. I don't really care! Holy cow.
STU: They are picking the vice president of the United States potentially.
GLENN: No, Obama is. McCain's not, by the way. He's not picking the vice president. He's been picking the vice presidential nominee but not the vice presidential vice president, he's not.
STU: Polls are within 2 points.
GLENN: I know.
STU: Who knows what could happen. Let's
GLENN: When those Republicans pull out, you know, stuff out of their dirty tricks bag.
STU: Well, Glenn, luckily for the Republicans, everyone's so racist or this wouldn't be close. I tell you.
GLENN: Boy, you aren't kidding. Boy, the racism here in America.
STU: Did you notice his name is funny? It's still funny.
GLENN: Do you know I pulled out a dollar yesterday and I just looked at it. I was looking at Barack Obama on TV and I was going to pay something and I pulled out a dollar and went (gasping), he doesn't look like the guy on the dollar bill!
I know that happened just yesterday, but it happened the day before and it will probably happen tomorrow, too. I just, because I forget. I'm like, that guy's running for President. (Gasping). He doesn't look like the guy on the dollar bill! Here's our number, 888 727 BECK. Who do you choose as the vice presidential nominee for Barack Obama? Remember, this is going to be tough. Think like Obama because if you pick what he picks, you win. 888 727 BECK.
GLENN: All right. We go to John in New Hampshire for the how do they do this in the sports world? You should do this because I don't
STU: You have to do it in the same way every time because the commissioner always says it the same way every time. So it's like with the first pick of the 2008 Barack Obama vice presidential draft
GLENN: No, it's got to sound more boring than that. Aren't they usually a little more boring than that?
STU: I can do it more boring. Would the first pick of the 2008 vice presidential draft for Barack Obama, John from New Hampshire selects...
CALLER: Yeah, Glenn. Hillary Clinton. Because if he's going to if he's going to win, he's got to have her base.
STU: Wow, that's a shocking first pick.
CALLER: It's a good first pick.
STU: I don't know. You think?
GLENN: It's not going to happen. You're listening to John? You talk about John after we say goodbye, John, it's great to talk to you, then he goes away and we're safe.
CALLER: Well, I'm a Republican. So I'm hoping that he goes with Hillary.
GLENN: You know what? What is she trading on
DAN: She's trading at 10 and the leaders, Biden is at 30.
GLENN: You know what, here's the reason why he's not going to pick Hillary Clinton. Because the secret service can't watch both of them. You know what I'm saying?
CALLER: Yeah, but if they're trying to get the other one whacked, it will be all right.
GLENN: That's exactly right. Look, if I'm the President and Hillary Clinton is my vice president, I immediately say to the secret service: By the way, I need a taste tester and I need to know that you're one of the secret service that worked in the White House before and hated Hillary Clinton. I need a taste tester. And forget about I'd go out in crowds, yeah, whatever, I got that handled; keep an eye on her, will you, and him. He's got a lot of time on his hands.
CALLER: But it's change for the children. So it will be okay.
GLENN: Change for the children, thanks a lot, John. Oh, we need to get John's
STU: We're getting information as we go.
GLENN: All right. Ralph in Delaware.
CALLER: Glenn, thank you for taking my call.
GLENN: Hang on.
STU: The second pick of the 2008 Barack Obama vice presidential draft, Ralph of Delaware selects?
CALLER: Ralph would like to first thank Glenn for the speech he gave at the NRA convention. It was one of the most wonderful speeches I ever heard. Nancy Pelosi.
GLENN: I like him. Who? What? Nancy Pelosi? Are you out of your mind?
STU: The second pick?
CALLER: It's a left field pick.
GLENN: It's a very, very left field. It's so far left
CALLER: It would ensure a Republican victory.
GLENN: What? All right, Ralph, thanks a lot, man. It kind of you know, he starts out with, hey, I'm a big fan and that speech made more sense than anything. It's Nancy Pelosi, she's come on! Who would give a compliment and then take it away with a Nancy Pelosi draft pick!
STU: Excellent point.
GLENN: All right, let's go to Ken in New York.
CALLER: Tim Kaine.
STU: We didn't do the intro. Don't you guys understand how drafts work? With the third pick of the 2008 vice presidential Obama draft, Ken from New York selects?
CALLER: Tim Kaine because he puts Virginia in play unfortunately.
GLENN: Can I tell you something? I think that's that's my pick for him. I know everybody's going with Biden and everything else. I go with McCain only because of who's the guy? Indiana?
GLENN: He needs Indiana you know, he needs these states that don't usually, you know, vote crazy.
CALLER: We have one in Virginia. So I'm afraid he could pull Virginia out and that's scary, but keep up the good work.
GLENN: Thanks, man, I appreciate it, Ken. Tim Kaine, how's he doing on InTrade?
DAN: Tim Kaine is actually, he's down at, like, 22. But the State of Virginia is actually 51.5 to 48.5. So that's
GLENN: For winning for
DAN: The Democrats are ahead. So that would probably you know.
STU: Well, you know, Kaine, it's one of those things, you try to pick somebody who's going to get you a state but you don't want to get somebody
GLENN: Who's going to hurt you. That's the problem with him. It's the dynamic duo of inexperience. It's like, I don't know, I've been here for three months, I can't even find the light switch, I don't even know where that is.
STU: If you have a guy who comes out and, you know, the possibility of Barack Obama not doing a good job, you never know. There could be an impeachment because, you know, he's not qualified or doesn't, you know isn't experienced enough. Then who is your backup? You are going to another guy who's
GLENN: Wait a minute. I'm just trying to get my arms around this. You think there's a possibility of impeachment?
STU: I didn't say there was a possibility. What else? You are picking a vice presidential candidate based on the fact that the President wouldn't be doing the job anymore. There's several scenarios. I highlighted one of them because I don't feel like talking about the others.
GLENN: I'm sorry, so riddled with ADD. I just heard you thought there might be a possibility of impeachment. Let me ask you this. No, that was a good point you made.
STU: I know it is. If you would listen to it, you would understand.
GLENN: You just go on and on, I can't do it very long.
STU: Where is your medicine? Can you start taking your medicine again?
GLENN: Here's the thing. Here's the thing. Have you, have you thought about this. Pick between these two. Which do you think and I'm not saying that this is I'm not saying this is high probability. I'm just asking, in the world of probability, which one do you think is more likely in an Obama campaign, that he's impeached or he declares himself, you know, President under really difficult conditions and I'm going to relinquish this presidency as soon as I can?
STU: As soon as I get around to it?
GLENN: Yeah. Which one? That he's more likely to become Mussolini or more likely to be chased out by congress? Which one?
STU: I don't think that
GLENN: I'm not asking you, I'm not saying that these have
STU: You can't let me get through thee words without losing attention.
GLENN: I know what you're going to say.
STU: What are you going to say?
GLENN: I'm not telling you. You know why? Because you're insane.
STU: I'm not insane. You think I'm insane because you only catch every sixth word.
GLENN: What? All right, what's your point?
STU: Now I'm not giving it to you.
GLENN: I don't want it. I didn't want it in the first place. Okay, I did. Tell me. Go ahead.
STU: I don't remember what it was.
