Harry

you may be on to something here



Quote:

Imagine being on the floor in Denver. Hillary's delegates, NEARLY HALF THE DELEGATES, are demanding she be on the ticket. These are true believers who have stuck with Clinton through thick and thin. To them, putting Hillary on the ticket is a crusade.

Most Clinton delegates are women, most Democratic voters are women, and they're going to just accept some middle aged white governor that Obama is rumored to want? No way. They are in your face. Hillary supporters from back home are jamming your Blackberry. This and more horror scenes flash through your mind in a nano second.

Then it occurs to you; if the roles were reversed and Obama came close to winning and wanted to be the vice presidential candidate, could you imagine the convention saying no?

Hillary is in the DRIVER'S SEAT !

It should not be ruled out completely. We have had President/VP tickets that were made up of former rivals. I believe that Reagan and Bush fit this bill.

The big question, of course, is whether they can work together at all. If they are not compatible, then it just might not work, no matter how much wishful thinking there is out there.

It MAY...I only say may...be an asset in a general election campaign. However, it would be very impractical in an actual administration. It would be a co-vice presidency vs. Obama. A former president and his spouse who felt entitled to the #1 spot are stuck in #2...that's more than your typical VP-Pres rivalry.

Obama really needs her help.

I hope she is selfless enough to save him.

it's still going to happen.

she'll get in there and do all the dirty work for him so he can glide all movie star-ish like JFK.

and make no mistake. his acceptance speech will be soaring and beautiful, and the movement will continue apace.

in other news, i am very pleased that McCain has pretty much given up on the base and is going to fight for the independents and moderates. that's a good thing for everyone.

until he chooses Huck for VP.

wouldn't it be great if the far right and the far left just disliked the candidates so much that they stayed home in november and allowed the rational thinking americans to actually choose from two valid candidates?

that would be awesome.

Huckabee jokes about Obama ducking a gunman

Posted: 04:00 PM ET


(CNN) – During a speech before the National Rifle Association convention Friday afternoon in Louisville, Kentucky, former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee — who has endorsed presumptive GOP nominee John McCain — joked that an unexpected offstage noise was Democrat Barack Obama looking to avoid a gunman.

“That was Barack Obama, he just tripped off a chair, he's getting ready to speak,” said the former Arkansas governor, to audience laughter. “Somebody aimed a gun at him and he dove for the floor.”

Obama supports extending the assault weapons ban, limits on gun sales, and a national law against carrying concealed weapons, with exceptions for retired police and military personnel.

What an ignorant remark by Huckabee
