Skip to comments.It's Gephardt !
Posted on 07/05/2004 3:02:26 PM PDT by KQQL
Just got some scuttlebutt, top Gephardt aide Joyce Aboussie has been sent a private plane to join Dick Gephardt for....one can only assume the announcement that Dick Gephardt will be the next Vice President Nominee for the Democratic Party.
UPDATE: If Aboussie is being flown out and ordering staff to be ready for a change, it's hard to imagine that it is anything, but gearing up for an announcement that he is the VP nominee. He and Aboussie are incredibly close and she is his right hand. Unless this is a bit of disinformation, this is the real deal.

Isn't he the one that grew up with union stories at the dinner table?
This means I can revive the classic tagline
It's DICKEY !
I'm not exactly running out for my Dull and Duller bumper stickers yet.
THIS IS IT! Unless it's not.
I just heard on the drive home radio...from a DEM operative in NC...that it will be Edwards (she said it would break at around 9:30am tomorrow) she said she was 99% sure of it.
That Edwards has met Kerry twice that the press isn't reporting about?
his daddy drove a milk route...
gephardt is from humble beginnings.
too bad , he went so far astray.
I heard somewhere that Edwards was flying out as well. Is Kerry just drumming up cheap sensationalism before he makes his pick?
I thought the Demon ticket couldn't get any more boring...shows how wrong I can be.
ANy one got a "t" shirt that says;
"Our DIck's better than yours!"
It makes sense Missouri is a swing state (although he has never one statewide or even run statewide to the best of my knowledge) and keeps labour happy
Dems are still pissed at Dick for 2002. Remember he is their sacrificial lamb.
I thought it was "Dick Gephardt before he dicks you."
But this is not final word that Qerry picked Gephardt.
This is a supposition based on a rumor.
BREAKING -- John Kerry served in Vietnam.
True. But I edited it to avoid the FCC.
Qerry wants someone--anyone--to pay attention.
F'ing is thinking how good he will look next to Dickie.
Tall and grinning.
So is it safe to say that Kerry likes Dick.
Conventional wisdom says that Gephardt couldn't deliver Missouri if he handed out $100 bills across the state. He hasn't run statewide for a reason.
He's got to be the most boring DemocRAT on Capitol Hill.
Qerry, I like
No, I think that was Hillary whose mother sang, "Look for the Union Label," or "Solidarity Forever" at her nappie time.
At least, that's what Hillary said.
BTW, what's a WASP mommy singing a Union song for anyway?
The same reason she was named for Sir Edmond Hillary seven years BEFORE he climbed Mt. Everest when he was a beekeeper?
That's why I've always said Gephardt is going nowhere. Since 1994 he's been the biggest loser in the Democratic party. He's intimately tied to the biggest loss the Democrats have had in the 20th century.
The tipoff: those non-existent eyebrows.
I can't think of a less exciting ticket. Those two joined together could probably suck the free energy out of the Cherenobyl coffin.
I doubt it. He's just waaaaaay too boring. He would not bring the spark needed. I STILL think it could be Hillary...I pray it would be Al Sharpton.
When you don't have eyebrows, anybody looks good standing next to you.
"Tall and grinning".
'Lugubrious and Lugubriouser'.
Gephardt is a wise choice on Kerry's part, and Gephardt is clearly the most qualified Dem to be president. Indeed, he is more qualified than Kerry. It is a signal, that Kerry is not going to fundamentally disagree with the Bush policy on Iraq, even though he claims with his insipid generalities that he is.
And he still has a lot to be humble about.
Wow! You even got her picture!
yea I guess he likes certain Dicks but I know he hates Bush. I assume he probably likes Colin though.
Could you put that in the form of an equation?

Betrayal : How Union Bosses Shake Down Their Members and Corrupt American Politics

My guess is...
Kerry will have EVERYone there for his big announcement. Gephart, Edwards, Hillary!,Dopey, Sneezy, Moe, Larry and Curley, Bill and Al, Clark and Dean. It'll be a love-in and they'll all hold hands and sing and afterward go see Michael Moore's movie again. The networks will wet themselves and we'll see nothing else (except the usual Bad News From Iraq) until the convention.
Rim shot! LOL!!
Is there anybody who'd be swayed on the basis of a Gephardt pick that is not voting for Kerry already. If DG is indeed the VP Nominee, I'm afraid he'll be having an "Al Gore" moment when the results from his home state roll in.
There's already one Dick running for VP. We can't possibly have two Dick's running for VP - Kerry's Dick notwithstanding.
K/G = B2 + ORI4 - NG Go2 + B9 USH.
LOL, another thread says it's Edwards for sure. :-)
Go to "Time Out"
"Wise" and "Kerry" in the same sentence is a Freeper Foul.
Sit in the chair for thirty minutes.
