They wont take the nomination from him because they are spineless jellyfish, clinton knows this. I think she will run as an independent and possibly win the GE throw the election into the House.

Now that would be some true chaos!

Someone noted last week that she can claim the popular vote, but O’Bomba claims the delegates.

"Hillary’s damage can be fixed. Obama may do damage that cannot be fixed."

I surmise that we are likely in accord on most important things.

In my opinion, Obama as President would likely be much less damaging to OUR Constitution than either McCain or Clinton.

Even Democrats would not allow him (of their own Party) to change certain things.

Do you suppose she is going to take this all the way to Denver? She thinks she is the best bet for the dems to take the WH and she will not stop..she wants the WH. To her anything else would be like going to the olympics and declaring your goal is to come in with the silver medal.

I don’t think she’ll stop. She thinks she’s best for the job, and thinks Obama is a disaster. Of course, Obama is a disaster. But maybe, just maybe, an avoidable one. He is being weakened, and if Hillary is unable to convince her supporters to back him he will lose for sure in November. The question becomes, will she be more powerful with a President Obama or with a President McCain? That will determine how she plays her cards from here on out.

My guess is - in short order we’ll see HER accept McCain’s invitation, intended for Obama, to go to Iraq with him. Make Obama look like the coward he is.

RUSH: You know it is a good question: Why would Hillary Rodham Clinton grt out of this race tonight if there is this Michelle Obama bomb of a tape that's going to drop somewhere soon, sometime soon down the line, and of course Ickes and McAuliffe are out there, "She's not going to quit tonight. This AP story is wrong. She will concede the delegates," whatever that means. We will know by virtue of what she says tonight in her speech, we will know if she believes that there is some damaging drop on Michelle (My Belle) Obama to happen sometime soon. I'll tell you something else that gives credence to the rumor, and these kind of rumors, this has been going around for so long, Beckel's right, it's hard to ignore this, it's been out there for so long. They still make me uncomfortable. But when you look, Obama quits his church this past weekend after Father Pfleger goes nuts in there. This could all be part of the timing because they know this thing is going to come to, this tape, whatever it is, Michelle Obama and whitey.

So we'll just have to wait and see. But I think Hillary's speech tonight will give us an indication, because she's been hanging around in this thing for one reason -- well, more than one -- but one of the major reasons she's been hanging around is hoping Obama would screw up or that somebody would have something on Obama that they would drop. The Clintons don't have it. They would have used it by now. So somebody else has it. Supposedly this tape is in the hands of Republican operatives. If it were in the hands of Republican operatives, I would wait and drop this thing after the Democrat convention. I would wait 'til Obama's got it sewed up. So we'll just have to see. Too many unanswered questions about it.

Here’s the thing...for a “losing” candidate, she’s been winning a significant number of late primaries. Consider what the story would be if Huckabee were still winning a large number of the late primaries, even though he had no chance of taking the nomination away from McCain. The Democrats don’t know the trouble they’re in.

Many others, with far less support, stayed in their races all the way to the convention, plus it will guarantee her a primetime speech in Denver.
The normal way to do that is by suspending your campaign (as opposed to terminating it). She is doing something different. I think she is trying to strong-arm Obama into giving her the VP spot.

This is really entertaining :)

Here's the problem. You're probably a very good person, and like a lot of good people, you don't understand how people who aren't so good think. Unless there's something about Obama's character that hasn't been made public - he's going to be more or less a puppet of a wide variety of shady Democrat characters. It's those guys you should fear, especially if the Democrats get a cloture-majority in the Senate.

Just for an example, don't think about who Obama would appoint to replace retiring Supreme Court justices. Think how many seats the Democrats will add to Supreme Court and the people Obama would appoint to fill those new seats.

She may never concede, hoping that Obama meets a RFK ending or some other major scandal surfaces before the convention. But she's finished and I have the party hats and whistles all laid out on the table.

I remember back to a moment I saw on TV in 2004. They were showing some of Obama’s speech at the democrat convention. The audience was loving it and there was a shot of this bitch, sitting there stone cold, you could see the anger in her eyes. Everyone else in the place celebrating and she's miserable.

You could see it as plain as day in her face “This prick thinks he can take the Presidency from me in 2008, who the f#ck does this clown think he is !” Everyone else in the DNC had been trained to anoint her, she had placed McAuliffe and the rest of her goons high up in the DNC. All the young and upcoming governors had been warned to stay out. She would let a few of the old and tired gang pretend to run against her. But this guy, this black son of a bitch actually wants it, actually thinks he can take it from me !

Well he did it and even though he's a socialist dreamer and a danger to the country, at least he did something right. He stopped the Clinton's in their tracks, saved America from these insufferable sociopaths. For that alone I will always be thankful.

Now all they can do is try and kill him. I dare them to try and get away with it. If anything happens to him, no-one will believe she isn't behind it - she won't have a chance in hell in November.

So go ahead bitch, try and stop him now.

We really can't hold the Bush - Kerry 2004 model up : W 51%, Kerry 49%, because Obama has brought a bunch of new rats to the precinct rolls.

Can't really use 1992 as a model, either.

If she goes third party, I think we can posit the total rat share at 60%, which they split 50/50, but if Barr gets in, he could take Paul's cut, 10%, leaving McCain with 30%.

Barack or Hillary could win with 31%.

Most probably.

I'm not so sure that McCain is so much a threat to the Constitution as either of the alternatives. I tend to hope that he won't suck as bad as some folk fear. But hey, we'll find out, huh?

If Obama wins we know that our guns will be gone (legally, anyway) and everything our troops have fought and bled and died for in Iraq and Afghanistan will be wasted. He will take our now obvious victory underway and flush it all. He will give Al-Queda just what they are looking for. He'll be a sock puppet for them.

It does matter. The troops have given too much to piss it all away now, when we are so close.

IMHO.

There not trying hard enough then. They should bypass the MSM and get someone to put it up on youtube. Are am sure there is lots of people out there would be willing to do it for them and would never say a word about who gave the the video. Once it hits there the MSM will have no choice but run with it.

Interesting point. Excluding the Operation Chaos vote, most of the people voting for her say after Super Tuesday knew she was really far behind and probably wouldn’t win. They keep voting and contributing to her anyway. My guess is a good number of them really hate Obama and want her to take it to the floor.

“Now I am beginning to think a tape exists. Hillary is clearly on the ropes but doesn’t give in? And not too long ago Barry was ticked off about people giving his wife a hardtime, telling people to “ lay off my wife “.
Barry must have heard the rumor of the tape and it would have been a perfect opportunity for him to make an impassioned speech about how his wife loves all mankind, is kind, considerate blah, blah, blah. He could have really worked the speech into a PR bonanza as the gallant husband defending his wife.
But as fa as I know he has not addressed this issue at all. Maybe he is waiting until the tape comes out. “

Obama’s three responses in order by week about his wife:

Week One: This is an unfair attack on my family and my wife’s remarks were taken out of context.

Week Two: I can no more disown my wife....

Week Three: This is not a woman I can call my wife.... This is not who I am....
