Skip to comments.Hillary Waits for Obama to Stumble
Posted on 06/09/2008 4:33:29 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Hillarys suspension of her campaign, and her omission of any release of her delegates, makes her a factor for Obama to consider for the next three months until the Democratic nomination is officially and finally his. Absent an actual statement to her delegates urging them to vote for Obama on the first ballot, Hillarys candidacy cannot be said to have ended.
Rather, the former first lady will be slowly circling overhead during June, July, and August waiting for Obama to make a mistake or stumble.
Throughout the next three months, there will always be the possibility that he errs so badly that Hillary gets back into the race. Should another pastor rear his head or if one of the mythical tapes that are said to be about to emerge does, in fact, exist, Obama cannot rest secure in the nomination as long as Hillary is overhead, waiting.
Even if all of the superdelegates desert Hillary, as most will now do, she still has 1,639.5 pledged or elected delegates to call her own. While these men and women can legally vote for either candidate, regardless of the slate on which they were elected, one must assume that they are true Hillary believers, who would not have been put on her slate to begin with.
These pledged delegates mean that she is always just a step or two away from the nomination, should Obama commit a faux pas.
And there will be many opportunities for Obama to err over the next three months. With John McCain keeping up the pressure by suggesting 10 town meetings between now and the conventions, at which the two putative candidates appear side by side, a weak debate performance or a decisive McCain win in any one of them could trigger a crisis for Obama, which Hillary...

Could she be a write in candidate?
I figured she had this up her sleeve. Ya just can’t get rid of these grifters.
I figured that this was her strategy. He makes gaffes and stumbles all the time. She is just waiting for the ‘Big One’ to happen. Maybe she has the evidence in her vault and is just biding her time. It wouldn’t surprise me.
Jeeeze! what does it take?
This guy has stepped in every steaming pile in 57 states!
Hillary mentioned “assassination” enough times to give some poor, mentally ill, warped individual out there a bright idea to act on her words. - Now, just when Bill will do it remains to be seen.
There is nothing that marxist could do that would shake his faithful fans from supporting him. Even if the super delegates wanted to, they couldn’t change their minds, it would be riots in the streets. They are now officially stuck with this guy.
Soon we will see if Hillary has a copy of that rumored video of Michelle Obama. If it comes out before the primary, she had it all along.
McCain just needs to press Obama on those townhalls.
No moderaters, no earpieces.
That’s what I thought too. I understand from a political strategy standpoint Hillary could still get the nomination if certain things happen, but, can you imagine the reaction if these events happened? Would Hillary really have enough support from the Obama voters to realistically win the general election?
And, if there are tapes or other evidence hurting Obama, given Billary’s reputation in this campaign, isn’t it likely they would be blamed for leaks of damaging information?
It costs her virtually nothing to hang in there waiting for him to implode by virtue of his associations.
While waiting for Obama to stumble, Hillary will stick her foot out any opportunity she gets.
Hell, Kerry almost won, and he was as bad as Jimmy Carter ever was--maybe worse. Carter didn't hold phony war crimes trials during Vietnam.
Which is her Plan B.
She lets Brother Messiah take the heat for 3 months; begs, borrows, or steals the nomination; then ducks for cover and rides the MSM express to the White House having NEVER YET explained her platform or answered any tough questions.
Either that or Plan C: her hired gunman takes Obamassiah out on 23 August.
Great visual! Thanks!
Exactly. Nothing has hurt this guy. He’s like the teflon canidate.
Even if the Michelle Obama “whitey” racist rant tape comes out I still can see him getting over that.
It would take something absolutely MAJOR to hurt Obama to the point that Hillary steps back in.
Well, as she circles overhead, she isn’t incurring any campaign expenses while Obama will most likely have to spend every penny he can get his hands on. I can’t remember there ever being a Presidential candidate who was as unvetted as this one. Who knows what remains to be uncovered? I’d say Hillary is taking a pretty smart gamble.
Snicker! I thought it said "assassination" instead of "association."
There is nothing obama can do wrong as far as the ObamaBots are concerned. They are like those monkeys .. they cover their eyes (see no evil in obama); cover their ears (speak no evil about obama); and cover their mouths (speak no evil about obama). All this will change when he gets to the general election and has to appeal to people beyond the ObamaBots. The moderates and independents WILL CARE.
If Hussein O. falters during upcoming debates, Ms. Bill Clinton may be nominated without having participated in such debates. Advantage Hillary.
I think the word is getting out.
My goodness, Osama stumbles every day.
I suspect she and her staff know something specific that will eventually come out, but it must not have her fingerprints.
“slowly circling overhead”
More like swirling in the toilet bowl of the Dumbocrat
That is what I am thinking too. Hillary must know something and she is waiting for the chance to “rescue” her party.
IMO, Hilly has a fix in at the convention and plans to take the nomination to a floor fight (hope so, hope so, hope so!!!).
If she steals the nomination with superdelegates, look for the Dem Party to explode like a supernova!!!
Go, Hilly, go!!
The word about Obama has been out for all to see but the MSM, who is in absolutely love with him, will bury it or over look it.
The word that he (Obama)is associated and has ties with racists (Wright) American-hating terrorist (Ayers) landlord thugs (Rezko) and support from every leftists group (i.e Code Pink) has been out and has done NOTHING to this man.
He is almost invincible and McCain is screwed.
I think Obozo is losing steam
Well, give an example. From several polls I’ve seen he is leading McCain so far.
He is stumbling more and more, and I notice signs are disappearing from yards.
I dont believe the MSM.
And remember this...Obozo barely has 49% of the DEM vote
I do NOT like the serpent head James Carville, but I like loyalty better than treachery. And Dickie Morris is a lower life form than serpent head.
Not quite sure how to break this to you but all the primaries are over.
Did someone say Arknancide? <sarc off/
Obama might get a brain tumor like Kennedy's or something like that. Lots of things could happen.
IMHO, Hillary either
1. has something so devastating it will cause Barry to withdraw
2. she’s hoping something like that will come along.
As I’ve posted before, there’s only one thing that will cause Hillary to stop her drive to be POTUS. Her death.
Hillary is sending out ESP vibes to you!
And he has stumbled...
Oh, DEAR!!!! I’m going to go wash our my brain before I become infected!!!

[snip] Hillary’s weakness is an illusion. She is playing rope-a-dope with Obama. By hanging on the ropes, and taking Obama’s punches, Hillary saves her strength for the knockout punch. Rest assured, the knockout will come. No matter how many primaries Obama wins, Hillary will beat him at the convention... At the appointed time, Hillary’s media operatives will ambush Obama with allegations of corruption, immorality and extremism... She will win the nomination. The real purpose of Hillary’s rope-a-dope is to lull Republicans into complacency. In this, she has largely succeeded. [end]
