22. I reluctantly agree. I think we will see a superdelegate consensus emerge
Edited on Thu Mar-13-08 12:47 AM by Altair
that a Hillary-Obama ticket is the strongest one. I think superdelegates will approach Obama and urge him to accept the VP spot for the good of the party.

Obama should be a smart enough politician to see that 2008 is not going to be his year in the general election with the cumulative effect of an angry preacher, angry wife, refusing to wear a flag pin, etc.

The preacher part is what really makes me question his judgment for the first time- he has long has national political aspirations and surely he could foresee that this would come back to haunt him.
