[Terry] McCauliffe: Hillary Can Still Win Nomination
KQNT-Newstalk 590 ^ | May 11, 2008

Posted on 05/11/2008 7:25:23 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The head of U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign refused to concede Sunday that she has no chance to win the Democratic presidential nomination.

Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press," Terry McCauliffe said it is still possible for Clinton to win the nomination, even though most pundits have concluded that she cannot overtake her rival, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, to become the Democratic Party nominee.

"Look, tomorrow -- something new could happen," said McCauliffe. "Nothing's impossible. You are talking to Terry McAuliffe. I don't believe anything in life is impossible."

McAuliffe argued that Clinton would be a stronger candidate than Obama against Sen. John McCain, the likely Republican nominee. He said she would beat McCain in Florida, a major swing state.

Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., who endorsed Obama after abandoning his own presidential campaign, said he expects Clinton and her supporters to rally behind Obama if and when Obama when he becomes the nominee.

"This is not 1968 when we were highly divided, racial tensions in the country, the anti-war movement, Democrats split over those issues," Dodd said. "The difference between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on substantive issues is rather narrow."

Don’t count out the Clinton’s, and even if they were out, don’t think that Obama will emerge unscathed from the Dems’ Denver Convention.

“...McCauliffe: Hillary Can Still Win Nomination”

I hope she does. There will be carnage at the convention!
For that reason I doubt that happens but it would be delicious.

You can almost see the Clinton’s gun behind the studio curtain pointed at Terry’s back as he speaks.

She can win. The Clintons (and McCauliffe himsel) have shown they can win. Look, Bill finished his second term after messing with an intern. Who else could have pulled that off? Hillary and Bill escaped jail time while others took the hit, left the country or pled the fifth. McCauliffe escaped jail after milking the investors at Global Crossing and was able to buy the Clintons’ New York home. State Farm, which never pays an umbrella policy claim when there is a possible violation of the law, paid off Paula Corbin Jones.

There were all kinds of things with the Clintons that “never could happen” but they did. She can win.

Obamarama had better double his and his family's security detail. I truly believe the Hildabeast and her people are capable of dastardly deeds to insure her win.

Wow, that is almost an incriminating statement. Terry better hope "something new" isn't traceable back to him. Then again, it could be a Monty Python skit. McAuliffe sounds like one of the Vercotti brothers - "'Cos things break, don't they?"

Indeed. The clintoons have resurrected themselves from political certain death in the past time and time again.
Never underestimate the clintoons.

McAuliffe: Hillary Can Still Win Nomination

Is everything Mc says as truthful as that statement? Apparently not.

This morning, Terry McAuliffe had Tim Russert's dad in the grave on Meet the Press:

Link to video:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=ug4enami1ug

MR. McAULIFFE: Absolutely. We will be together. This is--we're in a primary, we're both trying to win the nomination. But it's not impossible for Hillary Clinton to win. A lot of people have said that. Big Russ, if he were sitting here today, nothing's impossible . Jack McAuliffe, if he were with us today, they both-- they're probably both in heaven right now, Tim, probably having a scotch , looking down and saying, you know what, this fight goes on."

Thankfully, the elder Mr. Russert is alive and doing fine.

Hillary ready to go to the Thermonuclear option possibly? McCain may not be looking for the Obama dirt, at least according to Cindy. We all know the MSM won't do it. Therefore, I wouldn't be surprised if Hillary just may have chosen to sit on it until all other options were extinguished. Maybe McCauliffe knows something we don't. Maybe....Maybe Obama navigated Chicago politics without getting dirty. Doubt it.

I’ve read, several times, that McCauliffe is some kind of parasitic, symbiotic life form that will die of neglect and horror the exact moment that a Clintstone loses a political campaign.

She's going to go by the popular vote....and I think Puerto Rico will be HER key.

What Hillary will never get through her thick head is that a lot of votes went to Obama were anti-Hillary votes.

She'll never get over losing the nomination to a BLACK man...After all, she's the wife of the first black president. I hope the blacks realize how they've been used "for their vote" all these years.

It is possible that Hillary has some major dirt on Obama. There’s the white guy who states that he gave Obama a hose job in a limo, but that guy flunked the lie detector test. What else could it be? Rezko?

Well if you turned a $ 100,000 investment in Global Crossing into an $ 18 million payout before the stock crashed and burned, you’d think anything in life was possible, too! /s/

Comment:

something new could happen,

Something like a couple of Chicago leg breakers from the Hillary supportin union catch Obama out eatin ribs one night and give him 40 whacks like Lizzy Borden.

Yea, that could give change and hope to the Hillary campaign.
