Bill Clinton: Hillary-Obama Ticket Would Be "Almost Unstoppable Force"

Bill Clinton: Hillary-Obama Ticket Would Be "Almost Unstoppable Force" By Greg Sargent - March 8, 2008, 3:00PM

Now Bill Clinton is saying it. Here he is, floating the idea of a joint Hillary-Obama ticket at a town-hall meeting today in Mississippi:

"She said yesterday and she said the day after her big wins in Texas and Ohio and Rhode Island that she was very open to that and I think she answered explicitly yes yesterday," Clinton began, referring to Hillary's own answers on the topic in recent days.

"I know that she has always been open to it, because she believes that if you can unite the energy and the new people that he’s brought in and the people in these vast swaths of small town and rural America that she’s carried overwhelmingly, if you had those two things together she thinks it’d be hard to beat. I mean you look at the, you look at the, you look at the map of Texas and the map in Ohio. And the map in Missouri or -- well Arkansas’s not a good case because they know her and she won every place there.

"But you look at most of these places, he would win the urban areas and the upscale voters, and she wins the traditional rural areas that we lost when President Reagan was president. If you put those two things together, you’d have an almost unstoppable force."

I predicted that this would be the outcome of all of this, it is all orchestrated, and set up to be the downfall of a free America. Put in a GOP candidate with issues, and then tag team him to defeat, and socialism is the vict-or.....

The old “vote for me and my wife and you’ll end up getting the guy you really want” ploy. Of course, we’d never see or hear from Obama again for at least 8 years if the Rats are dumb enough to fall for this.

Klintons are an unstoppable force that Obama could have stopped.......

I just saw Bill Klinton’s highlights on Fox, campaigning in Misissippi.

With eyes welling up, he says, In all the States Hillary couldn’t complete because she didn’t have the MONEY, she still won the Veterans vote because they know she cares about them.

The guy is pulling in Millions and hiding the income by not releasing tax returns, and they have been raking in money all their lives, and donated 5 million to the campaign, and somehow STILL MANAGES to portray himself and his wife as VICTIMS. UNDERDOGS. POOR. Fighting against “The Man”.

Try and beat that in General Election.

She's behind so Bill and Hilary are launching a huge campaign to convince the superdelegates to pick Hilary, on the premise she will run with Obama.

Obama should simply say she should agree to run with him, or some comment about it being too late for the African American to be relegated to the #2 spot when he's in the lead.

I’d love to see how much the grifters reported as charitable donations on their tax returns.

3rd comment left on that site..

“But. But. But. Didn’t Senator Clinton say that Obama had not crossed the “threshold”? How is it that someone with the “experience” of Senator Clinton would put an “inexperienced” man like Obama one heart beat away from that 3AM red phone call?”

That's only gonna happen if Obama "knows his place".

He has more delegates, so why settle for #2?

He's smarter than to take her as HIS # 2. Can you say Arkancide?

If Obamma Lamma Ding Dong chose Mrs. Clinton as his V.P he would always be looking over his shoulder wondering when he was going to blow up.
If Obamma Lamma Ding Dong ran as her V.P. he’d be like a lost puppy dog like algore was as Bill and Hills V.P.
He isn’t that big a fool.

I doubt the Clintons “gave” their campaign anything. I’ve heard it reported as “lent” their campaign $5 million.

This is a trial balloon, and as usual Bill Clinton, forever the gasbag, espouses hyperbolic nonsense. Yeah, put B. Hussein on Hildabeast’s ticket. As I see it, unless Hussein is on the top of the ticket this will leave many of the Dems offended and it will energize Republicans.

Yep Obama, the black man reduced to "Driving Miss Daisy/Hillary". According to the Clintons, he would be right where they want him:

At the back of the bus... Opps, I mean ticket, you get my drift.

Boy the Clintons are nefarious. Should Hidabeast steal the presidential nomination via the Super Race/super delegates (which she has every intention of doing by hook or by crook) and Osama, Obama is relegated to the back of the bus driving Miss Daisy to the White House, "There Will Be Blood" come the democRAT convention in Denver. There had better be plenty of riot police on sight with clubs, in full roit gear with LOTS of tear gas because that is exactly what the democRATS will have on their hands; race riots that are going to make Chicago 68 look like a picnic. The so-called "African Americans" are going to raise holy blazes once they FINALLY realize the truth that the democRATS ARE THE RACISTS, got to keep those black folks on the plantation and Osama, Obama, is thrown under the bus.

____________________________

In the Democrat Party, a VP offer from the Clintons is an offer which cannot be refused I’m afraid.

Yes, Obama would easily get subordinated in the VP job, but if this service to the Clintons were refused when they need Obama to shore up the black vote, this is where the politics of personal destruction comes into focus.

Hillary is really angling for Obama to be on the low-end of her ticket. I don’t think he would do it, he would be crazy to do so.

And it wouldn’t be unbeatable. Half of the voters couldn’t vote for her and the other half wouldn’t vote for him.

It would be a doomed ticket.

Took the words out of my mouth. Rush was on to something like this too. There are going to be a lot of people who will not vote for a black (yes, racism does still exist), and there are tons of people who will not vote for a woman. Those combined numbers could tank the democrats in Nov.

The Clintons are really trying to push this idea to save their political lives, but Obama is having none of it. He would be really stupid to have her on his ticket as VP, since he would probably have some unfortunate accident. But then again...

This is just BS to make the dims think that the Klintons are gracious and hold no grudges and they are willing to let bygones be bygones in the spirit of cooperation that the dims are always so in favor of. However, this is nothing but a red herring. There is no way in this world that Obambi will forgive and forget and there is also no way that Hillary would ever put him on the ticket.
