Obama / Clinton would be a strong Democratic ticket, but I can only imagine the clash
of personalities.  Better for all concerned if either she says preemptively that she isn't
interested in the #2 spot, or better yet, if he offers and she declines (politely, of course).
That way, she gets payback ("Beat me in the primary?  Well I won't run with you.  So
there!"
) and her supporters can still get in line with the party's candidate, without the
otherwise-inevitable continuation of the complaints that she's been somehow mistreated.

Besides, with Ted Kennedy likely to retire soon (have I said this before?), the Far Left
needs a new figurehead in the Senate, and the GOP needs a new focus for their propaganda,
and in Hillary, they've got an experienced scape... uh, donkey? to fill both
roles.

yes, but hill would make the dream ticket for boomers and their kids to rally around together. the two names have been joined in the media for the past 16 months. it would show party unity. double dipping donors. yadda, yadda, yadda.

I like Carter's comment about the only thing a joint ticket would do is open the campaign to criticism on both their negative points.

There are people that absolutely despise Hilary, to the point of not being able to vote for her. Make her Secretary of State, she fully endorses Obama and campaigns for him through November, her supporters start to remember actual political issues instead of whatever it is they're thinking of currently, win, count it, and one.

They'd be a fundraising machine beyond all imagination...but Hillary on the Dem ticket would unite the Republicans far better tham McCain's been able to do. Best to get someone else for the VP spot.

jdfu!

He'd be an idiot not to offer her the spot. My personal feelings about Hillary aside, neither Obama nor Hillary have the power to take on McCain alone. I was hoping for Hillary to win the primary, with Obama as the VP, but that didn't come about. If Obama doesn't offer Hillary the spot, there will be a fuckton of pissed off Hillary supporters who will either stay home or vote for McCain, costing Obama essential votes. There's no way he can win without her support, just as she couldn't have won without his support.

Personally, I'm one of those pissed off Hillary supporters. If she's not selected as his VP, I'll be writing her in, just as I suspect many others will be doing.

Where are you getting this idea that McCain has all this power?

Edit: And considering Obama and Hillary are nearly identical on their stance on issues, writing Hillary in is incredibly selfish. It's your vote, but I'd strongly consider the good of the party and the nation before making that choice. I highly doubt Hillary would want you to write her in.

DAMN!


I hope hillary will go for VP and maybe she can mediate and have some input in the choices he makes.....


where i work everyone is very republican and patriotic and they swear they're buying a shotgun and sitting on their porch and shooting anyone that comes in their property..

and that the nation will become muslim

and oh, my favorite when i was talking about human rights one guy said, "god made adam and eve, not adam and steve"


sigh...

i could only laugh.

I have heard the Adam and Eve thing before... along with lots of other rhyming philosophy. I enjoy it. It's very easy to make people realize how absurd they sound when they do that.

"Ah! That rhymes! Lovely. Now that that's been established; who made Steve?"

Naw, I'm still trying to figure out where Cain & Abel went to pick up chicks...  West VA, maybe?

If he offered her the spot, it would only be out of pressure from the party. I'm pretty sure it won't happen.


That being said, if Obama wins, I'm going to throw myself from the 696 and Gratiot overpass. The locals here might see me on the news. My brother is hoping he gets assassinated. I don't doubt that there may be attempts.

I feel the same way about either candidate this year. Granted, Obama is the lesser of two evils, but if he chooses Hillary as his VP and gets assassinated, at least we'll have a somewhat better president.
