He desperately needs her as his VP
polls show a 5 point bump with her on the ticket

the question,
will she rescue him?

I'm afraid instead of picking the most obvious choice JIM WEBB Obama will be forced to pick Hillary. It's a real shame too and the fault of so many voters who kept voting for her despite the fact that she was NOT going to get the nomination. Stupid democrats!!!

Of coarse she'll "rescue" him...The Clintons are the most power hungry couple in America.

It's more official now. Check out The Page - by Mark Halperin - TIME (I've been LOVING this site during all of this) Obama just picked up a ton more Supers and now only needs 12 delegates tonight. He'll get that.

"I think many of those Hillary voters are going to consider and support Senator McCain," said Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty in an afternoon conference call designed to prebut Obama's speech tonight in St. Paul.

Pawlenty even compared the two senators, saying they shared important traits of experience and tenacity.

"They see and saw in Senator Clinton somebody they value experience in and, in many cases -- in terms of her personal characteristics -- her persistence and strength," the governor said of Clinton's backers. "Many of those same characteristics and more are in Senator McCain. So we think he's going to be able to compete for Senator Clinton's supporters to a significant degree when and if she terminates her campaign."

The likely Democratic nominee, Pawlenty argued, "is not ready for the job. And Senator McCain is more than ready from day one to assume the role of Commander in Chief."

Or should I say Day One.

Hillary is picking up fans.

It seems most Obamanics want nothing to do with her.

Why do you say that?

There will be several cycles of fluctuation in Obama and McCain's poll numbers. To say that Obama will do nothing but rise and McCain will do nothing but fall from now until November is a bit presumptuous, not to mention that that certainly won't be the case.

Democratic super-delegates share the same raison d'être as activist courts and judges. Which is to overrule the will of the voters when they don't "get it right" in the judgement of the "elites." A backdoor escape hatch from majority (mob) rule.

with all your excitement

let me ask you something

how would you feel if we were getting reports that

super-delegates from
Iowa, Illinois, South Carolina, Virginia, and North Carolina
were coming in for Hillary
and this was putting her over the top and giving her the nomination?
