And that took some doing in Illinois!

Well, Illinois is still there, and still heavily controlled by the Daley Gang, so that's entirely possible. Hussein Obama is even a minor member of that gang.

I've figured anybody that says they are running on the Democrat ticket for President is just doing their tryout for VP to Hillary. I think you are exactly correct why she will pick Obama. It isn't that the black vote would vote Republican; it's just that they are about as enthusiastic about voting for Hillary as I am for voting for McCain, Giuliani, etc., so Obama will bring them out instead of Soros having to waste all that $ to round them up and bus them from precinct to precint. Now the party honchos can either pocket Soros' $ or they can use it for something more constructive - like buying votes at colleges or supressing votes in red states, etc.

This year's election has shown that the Left, and especially the "dinosaur media" is as red-fanged and ravenous as ever. The Democrats, a party we know to be incompetent and corrupt, were able to use a booming economy and no terrorist attacks on our soil as somehow a sign of the Republicans failure.

The stinking traitors. The only reason Kerry wasn't elected was he was so repulsive even the 'Rats couldn't get excited about him. They will pull out all stops for Hillary. She will be favorably mentioned in every style and women's magazine. She will appear in TV dramas and sit-coms, always as some kind of modern day savior. She'll be on Oprah once a week expressing her concern for America and her disappointment with the evil Republicans.

Bad-mouthing her here, or shooting the messanger Delay is not going to change it.

Thanks for listening. I really despise all things Democratic right now. The voters in my district voted one of the best congresswomen out and replaced her with a stinking limosine liberal.

The Hillary prediction may just occur; however, Obama would not run for VP. His ambitions are for the presidency and he would not want to mess those up. FWIW, I'm not so sure he isn't going to give her a run for her money.

I do think 2 years out is a little soon for such a madam president prediction. She has always been a concern, and we really do need to see what a mess a dim congress makes of things.

In this respect this makes her more of a man than Teddy Kennedy, who chickened out of future presidential races after due reflection on what happened to his older brothers.

And Teddy is the one who would deserve it!

I have know a guy, an alcoholic who lives in transient housing and picks up occasional painting and odd job work. He was so excited about Murtha, and here in my neck of the woods, John Hall. This guy is 63 and he and his social security, medicaid buddies, stay up til all hours getting stinking drunk and playing video games. And he gets to vote. Natch, he votes democratic. Hates the "rich" pubbies. Only rich people around here are the civil servants, school teachers, and construction folks, more or less. V's wife.

"Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said today that Sen. Hillary Clinton (D.-N.Y.) would be elected president in 2008 and would probably tap Senate colleague Barack Obama (D.-Ill.) as her running mate."

Got as far as this and had to go throw up. God forbid this pair ever set foot in the White House.

Based on the comments on FR, Delay is absolutely right.

If we run a liberal Republican like the media wants, we lose. The base of the party will simply evaporate--or turn to a 3rd Party.

Interesting that the messenger is attacked intead of rallying around the GOP front runner for 2008.

That's one major reason why we lost in 2006.

We need to stop attacking the messenger who brings us news we dont want to hear. That not only gives me the image of one who has his head in the ground, but also a pre-2006 democrat tactic

You said it. You can't beat the enemy playing defense. The GOP better start thinking about eating a LOT of crow and giving the American people some conservative ACTION these next two years, or they will be defensing themselves into non-existance......

1. Let's do that flat tax or sales tax and FIX the Income tax system!

2. Social Security, do something for those younger citizens who won't see a dime.

3. Get some conservative judges sworn in.

The only organization that gets my money now is the NRA. They at least deliver what they promise!

If we get the amnesty for illegals that Bush and Ted Kennedy want, there will never be another Republican president. The immigrants vote Democrat. That's why Ted Kennedy wants amnesty and millions of additional immigrants. My question is, why does Bush want the same thing?

"The base of the party will simply evaporate--or turn to a 3rd Party."

I think the Republican party has already evaporated and 3rd parties will be just what they are - nothing. The two headed gov't party has no use for one of the two "parties", the Republicans, anymore. I think a lot of the elected Republicans know it and even though they aren't willing to leave the gravy train until they are forced to, most have been very busy getting "theirs" while they can which is why very few conservatives can think of anything kind to say in regard to the Republican party and their actions in the recent past.

Bush has wanted this going back to Texas. Lots of theories (although I actually don't buy the ones about Jeb's wife's family pressuring him, oddly enough).

I have been thinking the same thing since Obama blew onto the scene. As much as I shudder to think about it, I do believe this could be a winning ticket for the dems.

That said, the Republicans better come up with a better ticket and some dirt on Obama to squash that charamastic spell he seems to have on so many Americans.

He blamed the Dems for the war going poorly in Iraq which is ludicrous among other things.

I don't think so. When you have Democratic senators and congressman constantly calling the Commander-in-Chief a liar and war criminal on the floor, and former Democrat presidents regular complaining on foreign soil about the war effort, the Democrats are certainly giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

When they characterize every move the President makes as an inhuman, self-serving and incompetent mistakem they linit our nation's options both diplomatically and militarily.

By constantly screaming and criticizing without ever offering a single positive recommendation, the Democrats deliberately frame every issue in way that ensures that Presient and our nation publicly loses face in the most damaging way possible.

It cannot be denied that the difference between al Qaeda propaganda and common Democrat talking points is non-existent. In fact, the Democrats go out of their way to give as much propaganda ammunition to the enemy as the possibly can.

This war against Radical Islam is absolutely about who has the stronger will. If Iran, Syria, and all the other blood thirsty "insurgents" and Islamic whackos believe that the President and the US is weak, it damages our war effort immeasurably.

Imagine how different the war would be going, if the Democrats had instead acted in a way to show unified support for an action that Congress authorized, with more than a hundred thousand US troops in harm's way.

There is no question but that the war would be going better for the US if the enemy didn't believe that they could out last the support of the American people.

The Democrats have spent every day of the last three years telling the enemy that the US is weak, corrupt and inept, and that time is on the side of the "insurgents" and terrorists, who now have every reason to believe it is so.

In 1969, after Bobby was killed, Teddy was barely over the minimum age to be elected President, so it isn't surprising that he didn't make a bid for the nomination then. By 1972 Mary Jo Kopechne was dead...and it was too recent for people to pretend Chappaquiddick never happened. I'm not sure if he gave any serious thought to running in 1976 (when he was still only 44).

If Hillary gets the nomination, there will be one huge media buzz from the MSN.

Just look at the buzz Obama is getting and he is a nobody.

If the ticket is Clinton/Rodham-Obama, can you imagine the buzz the MSN would create? It would be spectacular.

In other words, we must not let our guard down and piss on those, like Delay, who say the Hillary is electable.

We must remain focused and run the candidate most likely to beat her. I know that is such a dumb statement to make but look at the alternative............

.............Hillary as Preseident.

I tend to think Hillary will pick someone other than Obama for her running mate. She'll have the black vote and Illinois anyway so he doesn't add that much to the ticket, whereas someone like Vilsack, Bayh, or Richardson might swing some borderline states her way. For Obama, I don't know if being VP would help that much if his ultimate goal is to be President--it might be better to stay in the Senate, or hold a Cabinet office.

Last Senator to win the White House was Kennedy in 1960.

We need to qualify this often-quoted statement. The last senator winning the White House directly from the senate was JFK. But he was not the last senator to win the WH. His sucessors, LBJ and Nixon were both senators once.

I've been predicting that Hillary would ask Obama to be her running mate, ever since the Democrat convention. She's just letting him get a head start on his campaigning, sort of rallying the base. Then when it gets closer to the election, they'll claim that Obama doesn't have enough experience, so he's better suited to the vp slot.

Besides the time for rallying around the party's candidate is after the primary. Before then the order of business is to get the best candidates available. But then I'll have to repeat the question, just whom would that be?
