Skip to comments.Obama-Clinton ticket for 2012 (L. Douglas Wilder)
Posted on 08/02/2010 1:37:45 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd
With midterm elections approaching, and many focusing on politics, more than a few people want to determine what the tea leaves might mean for 2012 when the Big One is on us again.
It would be good for President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party to address some important issues now.
The presidents poll numbers can be read different ways, depending on who is doing the reading. One thing is clear, though: He has to improve his favorability numbers, as well as the unsettled national mood reflected in the right track/wrong track indicators. Neither is easy. Nor is there a simple fix.
But one thing Obama can do is reconnect with the 2008 campaign themes he used to barnstorm the nation: audacity and change.

L. Douglas Wilder is the nations first African-American to have been elected governor. He served in that office in Virginia from 1990 to 1994
Mr. Wilder was another one-term wonder.
Ya gotta realize where this analysis is comin’ from!
I think the VP choice makes very little difference one way or the other. Hillary may help with liberal women...but then again, Geraldine Ferraro and Walter Monday lost a mere 49 states to Ronald Reagan.
I think it will be Obama/Clinton in 2012. He’s loosing voters that were solidly for Hillary. Just look at the wedding...The Clintons still draw HUGE crowds while Obama winds up in an uncrowded restaurant with a burger and fries...and of course, there’s the ice cream runs.
Yes, but in VA the gov. has a 1 term limit.
Putting Hillary on the ticket in 2012 will make him look like a loser who can’t win without the help of his former opponent. It will totally emasculate him.
Yeah...’cause Biden’s the problem.
But I shouldn’t let facts get in the way of a good snarky comment should I?
White males have no place in the administration of Barry Soetero. No siree bob.
Gee Mr. Wilder, I don’t think Hillary really needs Obama on the ticket.
Oh, Clinton will be on the ballot all right.
On top. As for who she will pick for VP, I can’t really guess at this time.
But Bammie? Hopefully he will be exiled back to Kenya.
Obama won’t be on the ticket - states are passing proof of native born American laws. He will choose not to run ala LBJ.
Ah but Joe Biden makes Obambi look smart and youthful by comparison.
If people get wise that Hillary is more qualified than the prezzydent, it won’t go well for Obama.
Wilder was constitutionally forbidden from a second consecutive term.
He should realize that the problems he mentions of Obama’s are his own fault and the result of Obama’s beliefs.
But hey, there’s plenty of room under the bus for Biden.
Wilder is trying to give Obama some advice, as they say,”Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” So thus in hoping to keep the Democrat Party from going to war with itself, Wilder is suggesting Barry dumps Biden, so he does not have to fight Hillary in 2012.
Oh, yeah, I’m sure Zero would be happy to put Hillary on the ticket. (Two words: Ron Brown)
Or at least, the Democrats and the press would have to be able to say that with straight faces.
Frankly, with what we've seen from the Obama people so far, it doesn't look like they could manage to do all that without making a mess of things.
