Usually the VP is selected because they add value to the ticket by ensuring votes in key states.Clinton has shown she can bring those votes -- she already won over 18 million of us!
it's gonna be Sam Nunn.and I'm going to have yet another fit.
Wha?!That's a name I hadn't heard thrown around. Obama's got some 'splainin' to do if that happens!
I'd love to see the dream ticket but I don't think it will happen. Obama doesn't really need her helpsince most will vote for the democratic nominee anyway before voting for McCain.
oh, yes, sue. did you see Nunn came out and said, well, perhaps DADT is a policy that needs to be reviewed...he is running hard for the VP slot.you wait and see.
Up until Tuesday it would have been unthinkable for anyone to tell Obama that his presence was splitting up the Democratic Party and he should pack his bags and go home. The aghast rejoinder from all sides would have been, but Obama is the party. Isn’t it at least a little bit curious to note how easily Clinton got bashed and tossed aside? Has it not occurred to anyone that, in effect, Hillary Clinton was raped, not only by the tiresomely biased media but also the Democratic National Committee (who have essentially disallowed two states only half of their rights -- what ever happened to "ain't I a man"?!!)? Take a very clear warning in the fact that Clinton was also summarily dismissed by such so-called party leaders as Barack Obama. In the future, when “do the right thing” comes to mind, recall that none of these greedy for power hacks had the good sense, let alone the balls, to come to a true statesman’s defense. Looking back, Gore gave up the fight for the presidency much too quickly and easily, and Kerry facilely ignored the will of the people in Ohio. But in the face of insurmountable odds Clinton’s good will and perseverance is portrayed as shrill belligerence. Now, we-the-people are left with the option to elect either a corporate whore or a corporate lawyer whore. True to form, may the best man win.
well, she SHOULD be president......but I can take VP.......for now anyway
Actually, the partnership between a President and Senate Majority Leader could easily be the best way for two powerful politicians to get things done. Do we actually need a reason to fire Harry Reid?And, apart from appointing him permanent ambassador to Antarctica, that's the best way to keep that immense loose cannon Bill Clinton out of the way.
anon... you make great points. the bottom line, women continue to have to play by a totally different set of rules.Saturday will be interesting...
I haven't seen it yet, but my older son told me Obama took Lieberman aside on the Senate floor and explained what his career options would be if he didn't get in line with the party leader (Obama), I imagine on the Bush court nominees. I'll bet Lieberman will suddenly find himself unable to attend Hagee's Klownklave next month.That's *exactly* what Hillary would have done, and I'm glad to see it.Pam's got a great post on VP possibilities on her blog. She mentions lots of good people, including the obvious choice: Sally Kern.

I'm here, I'm queer and... I have to get to bed before 9:30PM or I'll never be able to get up with the kids.
