Report: Gore, Carter May Stop Hillary
NewsMax.com e-mail | 14 Apr 08 | NewsMax.com

Posted on 04/14/2008 12:30:42 PM PDT by seanmerc

Former President Carter and Al Gore have discussed plans to tell Hillary Rodham Clinton that she must abandon her presidential bid, for the sake of the Democratic Party.

"They're in discussions," a source close to Carter told the Scotland on Sunday newspaper. "Carter has been talking to Gore. They will act, possibly together, or in sequence."

The newspaper said the message will be delivered — it's just a matter of when.

Barack Obama leads Clinton in the race for pledged delegates, and political experts say its nearly impossible for her to catch. But she retains a lead among superdelegates, and has pinned all of her hopes on them. She continues to insist that she will stay in the race until the Democratic convention in August.

According to Scotland on Sunday, the Carter-Gore talks have centered on two likely scenarios for ending Clinton's bid: Carter and Gore meet with her privately and ask her to step down. Or both of them appear in public and endorse Obama — which is likely to puch a majority of superdelegates to support Obama.

So these two losers are taking it upon themselves to tell Hillary what to do? They'd better be careful and watch their backs. And this just when that one poll in PA shows Hillary up by 20 points in a must-have state for the 'Rats?

This is one fight that I'm very content to sit back and watch from the sidelines.

This story is from last week, before Snob-ama decided to insult pretty much everybody in Middle America, before he tanked by 20 points, and before the latest polls revealed he will get beat by McCain by 15 points.

So, now what do they do? Say "nevermind" and ask Obama to withdraw, for the good of the party?

Odd. Carter and Gore seem to always have opinions on things which is NOT their business!

But then so do Jackson & Sharpton & Ted Turner & most movie "stars" & & & the list is endless!

If Carter and Gore tried this Hillary would thump them with her Bible and then shoot them in the kneecaps with her grandfathers .22

You know how much Hillary dislikes typical elitist white people.

Oh yeah, picture this.

Jackass Jimmy returns from unauthorized middle east talks with Arab terrorists and endorses Barak Hussein Obama.... which to me includes good ol’ Reverend Wright and his good buddy Louis Farrikan given that Obama never rejected their statements.
All birds of a feather. And as the old saying goes, you can trust a person’s character by the company he keeps.

Hillary won’t give a damn what Jimmy and Al think. She already singed out Al as out-of-touch loser in yesterday’s debate.

This is the funniest and most presumptuous thing yet from the global busybody Commies.

It takes some large brass ones to tell Her Hilariousness something she doesn't want to hear. Would that either one of them exhibited this kind of courage in execution of their public duties.

Yes, but it’s her bitterness and frustration with big government that makes her turn to religion and guns.

The headline is COMPLETELY wrong.

They may TELL Hillary that she has to pull out,

but they will by no means actually stop her.

Believe it or not, this lunatic Gore-Carter anti-Hillary initiative makes Hillary Clinton look like a relatively normal, more centrist candidate. Gore’s bizarre global socialist Marxist agenda makes him a perfect match for Jimmy Carter’s pro-Islamist, anti-Semitic bash America first, UN run one world government garbage.

The Democrat Party no longer exists as an American political party operating under American social and cultural norms, but is rather an activist, anarchist political movement within America seeking the downfall of American constitutionally based, elective representative government and its replacement with a form of government run by an unelected, unaccountable, and irremovable political elite class for which consent of the governed is no longer necessary and elective representative constitutional government has been supplanted by self-appointed global bureaucracies who view sovereignty and national constitutions as both an impediment and an obstacle.

That is the world Gore and Carter and sadly far too many Republicans including Juan McAmnesty embrace to varying degrees.
