......then he should offer the 2nd place Democratic primary finisher, who'd have finished mere percentage points behind him in both the delegate count and popular vote (w/ about 15 million votes total), the #2 spot on the ticket. I'm talking Hillary, natch!
Of course BHO is under no obligation to do so, but it would be a brilliant and bold communal move, one that would indeed bring the party back together and focused on a singular common goal, defeating Sen. John McCain in November! There's no way McCain could survive a battle w/ the 4-headed monster of Barack, Hillary, Bill & Michelle, could he?
If Hillary were to be VP, it's doubtful she'd ever make it to the Oval Office, but being the first female Vice-President is not a bad way to go down in history. Not to mention she'd be a real ball-buster in our do-nothing Democratic Congress, doing whatever it takes to redeem her legacy by finally getting health care passed. If BHO were to be VP, he'd gain valuable experience and be in spectacular shape for 2016, when he'd be around the same age John Edwards is now. His popularity and Congressional allies will ensure him the clout to keep Bill at a distance, which, well let's face it, would be beneficial to Hillary as well.
I never thought I'd ever see video more damaging to Sen. Barack Obama's campaign than the first videos of Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ's sermons that emerged in mid-March. Then I saw these:
Roll up, roll up for the misery tour! That would be the upcoming media tour by the good Rev. Jeremiah Wright, which will no doubt be bringing misery upon Sen. Barack Obama's electability argument. Here's a list of some of Rev. Wright's "Greatest Hits" (w/ video excerpts):
"Israel (That Dirty Word Again!)" "America's Chickens....... are Coming Home..... to Roooooooost" "God Damn America!" "The Government LIIIIIIIIED about Pearl Harbor!" "The U.S. of KKK (A.)" "Hillary ain't never been called a n***!" "Fighting for Peace is like Raping for Virginity" "What We are Doing is the Same Thing Al Qaeda is Doing" "Monica (The Other White Meat)"
Sen. Barack Obama's Reverend Jeremiah Wright problem is just the beginning of his would-be November defeat. The right-wing 527's will morph Sen. Obama into Louis Farrakhan by the time the general election rolls around. As much as the MSM (and shameless Obama-shilling sites like Kos & HuffPo) try to play down the story, this one will linger.
Many Americans have never heard such vile things said about their country, let alone from the father-figure and spiritual adviser to a leading Presidential candidate. Besides that, word came out today that Obama's financial ties to Tony Rezko are much closer than he previously declared. What else will come out of Rezko's trial? What will the 527's uncover about Obama's admittedly (sometimes) seedy youthful endeavors? How many more times will Michelle Obama put her foot in her mouth?
Sen. Obama has already "bamboozled" us about his Rezko ties and is now trying to "hoodwink" us by saying he wasn't aware of his pastor's frequent hate-filled rhetoric. Uhhh, didn't he sit in the Reverend's pews every Sunday on & off for the past 20 years? Was he in the bathroom every time the Reverend spewed something detestable about our great country? Or did he doze off during those screeching sermons about the "U-S of KKK"? How else would he not hear those sermons? I'm telling you it would be a huge mistake for the Democratic party to fall for Sen. Obama's "okey-doke" and nominate him. If the super delegates give him the nomination in Denver, we are talking McGovern/Mondale style defeat in the fall here.....
