That Obama would add Clinton to the ticket. Since Obama is winning, he has to continue to project confidence and strength. No matter what these polls say, I don't think the Obama campaign would want to have the appearance of giving in to, or being bullied by, an opponent whose strategy was to make him seem unelectable.
Picking a VP should be the Presidential nominee's job, and the "dream ticket" narrative would be all about how Clinton got her way, etc., not how strong Obama/Clinton are in certain states.
Obama supporters are not welcome here. We are suffered, and only barely respected.
Whenever there is a dustup, with plenty of blame to go around, only Obama supporters are told to leave if they don't like it. Supporters for both candidates have routinely gotten out of hand, but for some reason the Obama supporters are always cast in the worst light. We frequently get mocked and taunted in frontpage posts, as a whole, and the site guidelines seem to be selectively enforced to the benefit of out-of-line Clinton supporters.
I've lurked here since 2005, and have always been proud to think of myself as part of the MyDD community. What has happened to this site is sad. We all deserve better than this.
I think I understand now why Clinton has been fighting so hard these last few weeks.
I would not have guessed that she'd want the VP slot, but now that her surrogates are pushing the meme, it explains a lot. However, I don't think Obama will give it to her, if for no other reason than his campaign will have been bullied into it. If she wanted the VP slot, maybe she shouldn't have employed the kitchen sink strategy against him?
This is so sad. Is Jerome really suggesting ("humbly") Obama supporters should leave MyDD? Or that any blog that fails to cover the WV race incessantly has its head in the sand?
Before I read this post, I was already fed up with the insults hurled by some front-pagers at the members of this community who support Obama. I couldn't understand why my support of Obama should make me so unworthy of courtesy or respect on MyDD.
But now I see the problem. It's not that the primary has lasted so long that some supporters have lost perspective. I simply "can't stand the heat of the WV primary."
