Or Obama/Elenchos, if you must capitalize it.
Um, Optimus Prime, as a foreign national, would be ineligible to be V.P.
@1: Who do you think you are, E. E. Cummings?
@2: As noted, when Optimus Prime changes from robot to semi and back it counts as a rebirth, thus he has been born on U.S. soil.
@3: I once asked infrequent the same thing.
I was kinda hoping for an Obama / Voltron ticket, myself. Or maybe Batman? I like Batman's neighborhood watch proposal.
Freedom is the right of every sentient being.
@5: Depends if it's Batman or Frank Miller's The God Damned Batman.
I was thinking of the WB's Batman.
@4 - Actually, somebody in the comments of that article noted that since Optimus Prime was technically on US soil before the writing of the Constitution, he's actually grandfathered in anyway.
@5 I don't like the Voltron idea myself.
The Defender of the Universe as our VP takes us from being the world's police to being the universe's police. We're having enough trouble as it is.
@8 - That's the WB's The Batman.
@11: You're wrong. It is either "Batman," "Batman: The Animated Series," or "The Adventures of Batman & Robin." Do your research, you uncultured Philistine.

Go see for yourself.
Optimus Prime is a Republican. Stupid Stranger staffers.
@2 - I think that Optimus Prime is just as American as Sen McCain - both were born outside of the USA.
But Aislinn raises an interesting point, isn't he Born Again? He'd make a great VP for McCain ...
Obama has NOT won the nomination yet
@13: That is the wrong show. This is the right one:
You know who'd make a great running mate?
Christopher Frizzelle's Enormous Flying Penis
16 - thank you for douching this comments thread with reality.
for the rest of you, please wait until obama actually wins the nomination before speculating which cartoon action hero he should select as his running mate. cuz right now you all just look stupid.
Oh, please, brandon. Yes, calling Obama "the nominee" is a prediction, but it's only a marginally less safe one than a prediction of McCain as the GOP nominee. (Yes, it's theoretically possible he could lose!)
I like how we look stupid for assuming Obama is the nominee, not speculating as to which cartoon character should be his running mate.
Clintrons have clearly reached the anger stage.
actually tsm and w7ngman, that's the point i was trying to [sarcastically] make. i get an F for the day.
I dont think any ticket could lose with the Swedish Chef on it. Seriously, know anyone who doesnt like the Swedish Chef?
Dan Quayle seemed harmless enough - would he still be available? What about Norman Thomas?
#22, I thought maybe that's what you were doing. Bravo.
24, yeah, he could, you know, appeal to the female voters. i've been thinking nostalgically about quail lately. good times...i miss him. and so does "kennedy" --who is still in possession of her now-rotting maidenhead, no?
Yeah we clinton supporters will do everything we can to make sure Obama doesn't win this year so Hillary can run again in 2012.
What you might not realize, @27, is that Obama supporters can hold a grudge too. Good luck in 2012 there.
Yeah another Republican in the white house sure will dampen most Obama's supporters enthusiasm in four years. By that time Hillary can make her case that she's more electable.
How about someone who at least projects the nerve to turn Saudi Arabia into a parking lot if gas hits $5/gallon instead of encouraging us all to ride bikes or buses or some other pansy-assed unamerican mode of transportation?
Calling something unamerican is unamerican.
@23- the swedish chef is a stereotypical display of racism on parade. hey everyone look at the dumb, hairy swede w/ a stupid language.
What's the bit about Alice Cooper and Internet Explorer?
