Obama should not allow Hillary Clinton to claim the post of vice presidential nominee...
"Obama should not allow Hillary Clinton to claim the post of vice presidential nominee � it will be a landslide victory for McCain in that case
Sonia Chopra
Mar. 7, 2008

You cannot become a vice presidential nominee when you call your presidential nominee less qualified than the rival McCain. A Hillary Clinton in the ticket also is a major physical threat to Obama. The history of 1960 can repeat. In 1960, the establishment never liked John F. Kennedy. They forced Johnson into the ticket. President Kennedy was assassinated a few years later and establishment won with Johnson as their new President for a long time. The history can repeat again with Hillary Clinton as the vice presidential nominee. The establishment and traditional especial interest driven Democrats are behind Clintons. Their days in politics are numbered. However, they are pushing for joint ticket."

Many people in other countries know US history better than Americans do.
Senator Obama needs to seriously watch his back.

4. I give my college students history and current event triva questions, and international students
always know more about America than kids born here.

5. That's sorta scary, now isn't it?
.

And conversely,

I believe USAmericans know really precious little about other countries, and even where they are on the globe.

Unless they are bombing it.

6. even when we are bombing it they don't know. If they had even a passing acquaintance with
geography and history, they would have known Iraq could never be a threat to us apart from jacking up the price of oil, which is exactly what Bush did anyway.

9. Iraq was only 25 million, thousands of miles away, and not even a danger locally.

CANADA is more of a threat than Iraq could have ever been.

14. when I talk about Iraq with my students I ask if they are afraid of Mexico which has more people
and is right on our border.

They say no and then they sort of get it when I ask again why we should be afraid of a country whose airspace we controlled, 80% of whose military we destroyed a decade ago, and whose neighbors didn't feel threatened enough to bother to help us invade.
