Clinton Hints At Sharing Ticket With Obama
CBS ^ | March 05, 2008 | Staff

Posted on 03/05/2008 5:42:39 AM PST by jdm

NEW YORK (CBS) ― Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton hinted at the possibility of a democratic "dream ticket" with Sen. Barack Obama.

Speaking on the Early Show on CBS, Clinton said "that may be where this is headed, but we have to decide who is on the top of the ticket."

Clinton said the race between her and Obama remains "incredibly close," with just "smidgens of difference" between them.

Clinton's remarks after her campaign won two big states yesterday: Ohio and Texas. She also won Rhode Island. The wins enabled her campaign to break Obama's 12-state winning streak and pick up some momentum of its own.

Speaking later on the Early Show, Obama congratulated Clinton on her victories while maintaining he would be able to wrap up the democratic nomination.

"We still have close to an insurmountable lead in delegates," Obama said. Obama said his campaign had won nearly twice as Clinton as well as a greater share of the popular vote.

I don’t know if I’d like Hillary on top.

Yeah, right. If Obama agrees to Hillary as his Veep, he may not even be his own man in an Obama Administration. He'd always have to watch his back... for any moves her Highness made against him.

If she was VP, her president would have a very short life expectancy.

These 2 on a ticket would be a hanging softball for McCain to knock out of the park with a little conservatism. He's probably not smart enough to realize that though.

She might not have a choice but to make Obama her VP if she wins, since she has alienated them so badly.

On the other hand, if she can't win directly, she can probably negotiate a deal to acquire the VP spot for herself and let fate (i.e., arkancide) help her acquire the presidency.

So many liberals "leaders" already seem to believe that Obama will be martyred (i.e., assassinated) in office if he's elected president, so the road is paved for her either way.

I've been saying this from the start. If the dems have a Hitlery/Osama ticket then McInsane is toast, because there's enough googoo-eyed idiot Dhummies that will vote in droves to elect the first woman/black ticket just because it will be viewed by the world as SOOOO progressive.

Hang on to your hats. It's gonna be a rough 4-8 years. I pray I'm wrong.

And I'm not the only one believing that a Hitlery/Osama ticket spells curtains for McInsane. I fear our chickens are about to come home to roost.

I unfortunately agree with you. People keep talking about a brokered convention and this is what I believe will be the end result. If it is we are #ucked.

She will have to win a lot more to command that kind of a deal. When (if) she does that she would be much better served getting someone else, possibly from the South and toward the center, for a running mate. This doesn’t at all make sense.

She is coaxing him into a more congenial posture, whereupon she unloads her next treasure chest of dirty tricks right before the next round of major delegate primaries.

Yeah, I thought a few months back that Evan Bayh would be Hillary's VP choice, but now, assuming she gets the nomination, I think she will have to take Obama to keep peace in the party. I also think that a Hillary/Obama ticket will be formidable in November, and the odds-on favorite to win.

There will be a huge, drooling, sobbing, fainting, worshipful rally where they come out onto stage hand in hand, with all Dems and the MSM in heaven. Then they will set off in the “Unity Express For Change” bus tour.

The question is: will this spectacle of drooling libs, feminists and radicals turn off more voters than it attracts? We will see.

I too have been warning of that possibility. Only wish Rush made mention when urging crossover votes.

Speaking on the Early Show on CBS, Clinton said "that may be where this is headed, but we have to decide who is on the top of the ticket."

Obama is leading in the delegate count and it is somewhere between arithmetically improbableand impossible for Clinton to win the nomination, no matter what happens. Obama will put her on the ticket just so Bubba can soil that nice new carpet that W put in the Oval Office when he arrived? Both Obama and Clinton have 48% negatives. That would be like trying to swim in lead boots. Obama can't be that dumb, although Hillary might be that delusional.

I just hope and pray that the dems shed enough blood and sling enough crap at each other in a brokered convention, and it appears that Hitlery has stolen the nomination from Osama, so that it disgusts enough of the older idiot Dhummies to stay home and not vote to swing the election towards the GOP.

We’ll still have the crazy, crotchety old McInsane as President to contend with, but hopefully the VP will be more conservative in case Mc's health doesn't hold up, plus hopefully we can affect mid-term elections enough to counter-balance him somewhat. It’s not likely, but I have to hang my last thread of hope on something.

I'm really surprised we haven't heard Rush and other conservative talking heads warn of this scenario in order to energize the conservative voting base. It's like 1991 and the party is sleep-walking through the election again.

I don't think Rush made any difference in this Democratic ticket. It was a given from the start. The Democratic Primary was just to see which one would do better as POTUS. McCain is toast.

I'm betting my Peso's that it will be Hill/Osama as that way, they would have the next 12 to 16 yrs sewed up.

Pundits, especially black pundits, are already speculating that the black vote will stay home if Hillary wins via the super delegates.

To avoid that, she’d need Obama on the VP slot.

I suspect that you’re right. Obama may win women and Hispanic support with this deal, voters that might otherwise go to McCain, but he has to watch his back. I really, truly don’t think he will live out his first term if she is his running mate. My husband, a Dem, doesn’t think so either.

This speculation helps me understand something I heard on the radio this morning. One of her campaign aides was asked about last night and he said that it meant they were not out and would have a voice at the convention. Then he went on to say “We’re the center of the universe.” He might have said world. My breakfast had a hard time staying put. These people are disgusting and worse, corrupt and evil.

A Clinton/Obama ticket worries me too.
That is why I wished we could have knocked Clinton out of the race yesterday.
I think the Republicans voting for Clinton have made both strategic and tactical errors last night.

I think the commies assasinated MLK for that purpose. He has been martyred ad nauseum. Although he preached a good sermon and made some positive contributions, he was in fact, a communist agitator.

LOL! First, a contrite Obama, ahead in delegates, would have to take second place, the VP position, on the ticket. Do you think his ego will allow this? Of course not.

Hillary put this feeler out there for the crowds to ooh and ahh about today. She thinks there might be a slim chance Michelle & Barack will say to heck with it, a VP slot is better than nothing and go for it, but if it does not pan out she can always say she held her hand out for him to grasp...

As far as the combined ticket, if it did happen, Obama is still a juicy left wing target. Average the negatives on both of them just today, before the GO hammers them, and they are both unelectable as long as GOP voters show up.

BO will not accept VP - he would let the Beast run on her own and lose. Then run again in four years. If the beast is to be the VP then BO better increase his life insurance. There is a lot of bad blood to clear up before these two are on the same ticket. BHO would never accept second fiddle and I doubt he could contain the Beast as his VP.
