McCain for VP?

Michael Medved ponders McCain as a potential VP frontrunner based on Medved's "running mate rules." 

One hiccup though.  McCain is 72 which makes him an unlikely presidential candidate in four or eight years when he'd be six or ten years older that even Reagan was when taking office.

Would Republicans will settle for another VP who isn't a natural selection to succeed the president in eight years.   Doubtful.  Republicans like a nice clean succession plan.   Open free-for-all primaries like 2008 so far just aren't the Republican way.
