One less thing to worry about...I guess.
Can’t imagine Hillary being satisfied with the VP position either. Should be a fight to the finish.
There wasn’t one “no” in that entire response.
These are words for public consumption.
Truth is, he will gladly take the VP slot when he finds the horse’s head under the sheets.
When Hillary muscles the nomination from him, she will need him to win in November and keep the Obamamaniacs on the Dem plantation.
She will make Obama an offer he can’t refuse.
And Michelle will be SO proud then.
I don’t think he’s stupid enough to accept the VP slot to her majesty. He would be tarred with all her wrongdoing and he has enough wrongdoing of his own to deal with. He will certainly not have her as his VP candidate. That would be a death sentence.
They all say that, but as GHWB said, it’s like the last cookie on the plate. Everyone defers, but someone always eats it.
He’s spoken to his wife.
Hooray Barack Obama! GRRRREAT news!
Why would he want to be the clintons vp? If being vp to hillary when she already has bill running around acting as if he’s the president, is not enough of a reason to decline the vp spot, then all he needs to do is remember the name Al Gore.
I don’t think we will see an Obama/hillary ticket or hillary/obama either, because the people who want to vote for these people will be really irritated if they favorite candidate is relegated to VP and they will not vote for the pres candidate. This would be a losing ticket in my opinion. However, I can’t get excited about them losing when it means McCain will win. Better than the dems? Maybe, but I sure wish a conservative was running.
Obama may be a nice guy, but his lack of patriotism is now becoming very apparent. I dont want him either as POTUS or VP.
I don’t remember that part of the movie where, “two men enter, one man leaves, then the other guy becomes Vice-President”. Maybe I saw the Australian version.
***”I was against the war in 03, 04, 05***
but he voted to fund the war in Iraq 4 times.
Just imagine a campaign where every commercial contains negative quotes from the VP candidate regarding the Presidential candidate, and vice versa. If these two pair up, it would be a very legitimate way to go negative with no dirt on McCain’s hands. They can’t blame him for repeating what their own campaigns said.
Actually, I don’t blame Hussein NObomba. The way he’s been treated by the Clinton camp, he might as well wait and try again rather than be identified with her disasterous name and administration (if it comes to that).
You know, I think he's catching her disease.
Actually, I wouldn’t want to see Osambama in any position at all. A waste of taxpayers dollars.
This is what scares me about Barak Hussein Obama; our country is the greatest on earth and isn't in need of any major changes. Obama would destroy America by weakening her militarily and taxing corporations to death to pay for his welfare programs. IMHO, having researched the mission statements of his "church" thoroughly, and having heard his crass pastor railing against whitie, it also appears that Obama's a racist in the true sense, and wants to empower blacks and other 'minorities' more than ever, and make whitie carry the load. The thought of this creepy man with his mystery background becoming President of the United States scares me.
I can’t quite decide whether a combined ticket of those two would be stronger... or weaker. Could be that a combined ticket would lose to McCain by even a greater margin that either one alone with someone new in the VP slot.
The dems are split badly between those two. I think it is fair to guess that many dems currently for Obama are so mainly because they despise Hillary as much as Republicans do. Also many dems will simply not ever vote for Obama.
I think due mainly to the “rock star” effect Obama will be tougher for McCain to beat than Hillary, but nonetheless I think McCain can beat either one in the general.
Simply put, they’re terrible candidates. I think there’s a lot of Democrats that are so far just quietly disappointed and embarrassed that this is the best they can do. Sure, lots of Republicans aren’t happy with McCain either. But I don’t think that split is as bad as the split on the left. McCain still has a chance that he might even get some of those conservatives back— but Hillary’s and Obama’s votes are already pretty settled I think. If there are dems that are still “undecided”... they might not go for either one.
He has to say this, else he allows the Beast to siphon off his votes in return for getting him as VP as a consolation prize.
He doesn’t want the Beast using the consolation prize angle to convince people that she and he are a “two-fer” and there are “no losers” if they vote for her.
If he leaves himself any wiggle room at all, however, don’t count him out as VP. Things change.
