This forum has a long history, by interent standards anyway-unfortunately it has been abandoned for far too long due to real life circumstances knocking the heck out of what had been my very real desire to keep this board alive and well forever so that all of us could meet here and communicate with each other everyday.

I'm not sure that a forum like this is even needed nowadays since the advent of facebook, etc...but I hope that this once thriving BB does bring some of us back together again and that maybe some new folks will join us as well!

Burns replaced as McCain speaker

Burns replaced as McCain speaker

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Republican John McCain's campaign has replaced former Sen. Conrad Burns as its speaker at the Montana GOP convention, a move that comes a week after Burns remarked that he only reluctantly supports McCain.

A McCain campaign spokesman said the events were not related.

Burns, the campaign's state chairman, was scheduled to speak on behalf of the Republican nominee-in-waiting on Friday. Instead, Rod Knutson, who spent time in Vietnamese prisoner of war camps with McCain, will be the speaker. A McCain campaign spokesman said last week's comments were not the reason for the switch. Jeff Sadosky said Knutson brings a unique perspective on McCain's time in the Navy.

Last Friday, Burns told Idaho State Republican Convention delegates that he would rather have seen the party choose someone else for chief executive. Burns told Idaho Republicans, "I'm sitting here campaigning for John McCain. He wasn't my first choice, but he is now."
