An Obama-Clinton Ticket?

Or is it the other way around. Terry McCauliffe, "the national chairman of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign says she could end up on the same ticket with rival Barack Obama."

We know who's not going to be Veep. Chris Dodd endorsed Obama for President but scotched speculation he would be Obama's running mate.

"Who would want to be vice president?" Dodd chuckled. "I'd rather be chairman of the Senate Banking Committee.

What a toxic brew!

Slick Willy, The Lizard Queen, and The Anthropologist Negro looking down his nose at us, all on one ticket. Is America really ready for this? Do we deserve it?

And then there's the "Old Coot". He's starting to look better and better.

You couldn't make this up.

Some large segment of the left is seriously looking for a handout so all bets are off.

What a beautiful day it has been out here in CA!

Two Words.

Not. Happening.
This blog post is exactly why there is no political version of Fantasy football. People were talking about this nonsense in 04 with making Condelesa Rice Veep.

It'll be a cold day in hell. No way Obama even thinks about it. In public, yes. But privately, no a chance. He knows she would be poison on the ticket and only rally the Republicans around McCain. Webb is my thinking. Someone with military creds. Someone who would make it so the entire South isn't completely written off Day One. Might even put Virginia in serious play.

The baksheesh is much better.

I can see Hillary running for President, she might also accept the post of Queen or Empress, but VP. You would have to be kidding. If she is VP, Hussein's life expectancy in office is about 3 days.

This is all just a nightmare. Our long national nightmare is just beginning.

Have you guys seen the Obama video that Powerline posted? Obama talking about how he'll basically disarm America? I kid you not.

"I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems...

...I will not weaponize space...

...I will slow development of future combat systems..." [As the mandarins in Beijing smile ear to ear.]

And on and on it goes. You've got to see it for yourselves.


Really, the more I learn about the guy, the more I think he's a genuine Manchurian Candidate, put up by hardline Leftists. I wouldn't even doubt that some of Putin's old buddies in the KGB are involved. The Chinese? Maybe, but the Clinton's have been their riding horse for all these years. Maybe the Russians just outflanked the Chi Coms and bet on the winner.

Curiouser and curiouser. And is there a word that means nauseating-er?

Well she ran everything for eight years as First Lady. I expect she could manage to run it all as VP for another eight years and then as president for a further eight. That would give her 24 years, almost double FDR's 13.

On the other hand having two power mad Alinskyites in the White House would a byzantine death match. Be fun to watch if times were much less serious.

Yes We Can't!
Bay State journalist Rick Holmes describes Obama and Patrick, fellow Harvard Law School graduates, as “peas in a pod.” Patrick is the Obama campaign’s national cochair. Obama’s presidential campaign has modeled itself on Patrick’s gubernatorial campaign. Patrick’s 2006 campaign slogan was “Together we can,” while Obama’s is “Yes we can.” The brilliant Chicago political operative David Axelrod has managed both men’s campaigns. Both candidates have made persistent appeals to “the politics of hope.”

So Clinton’s criticism seems an opportune moment to ask how Patrick’s inspirational rhetoric has translated into governing a state where Democrats control both houses of the legislature—the likely scenario for Obama, too, should he take office. Patrick’s governorship is the closest thing we have to a preview of the “politics of hope”—and that governorship has been a failure to date. As Joan Vennochi observes in the Boston Globe, “Democrats who control the Legislature ignored virtually every major budget and policy initiative presented by a fellow Democrat.” Patrick’s record in office, Vennochi concludes, “shows that it can be hard to get beyond being the face of change, to actually changing politics.” His stock has sunk so markedly that Hillary Clinton carried the state handily against Obama in the Democratic primary despite, or perhaps because of, Patrick’s support for his political doppelgänger.

Her strategy is to make people think she will take Obama as VP, thus allowing people who are on the edge to vote for Hillary without voting against Obama. This is still about the primaries.
