MSM: McCain should be like Lincoln and choose a Democrat for VP!

While reading this Washington Times article, whose author is salivating at the prospect of a GOP vice president with a 2007 ACU rating only one point higher than Sen. Obama's, I came across this gem:

Naming Mr. Lieberman, an Orthodox Jew who is pro-choice and voted against a ban on partial-birth abortions, would certainly transform Republican presidential politics.

Not since Republican President Abraham Lincoln chose Democrat Andrew Johnson as his running mate in 1864 has the GOP taken a bipartisan leap.
How about that, it has been a long time since the GOP went bipartisan with it's vice presidential choice.  What better time than now?

Exit question: When was the last time a Democratic nominee chose a Republican to be their vice president?
