Bill Clinton's prediction: doesn't think Hillary can be the nominee
Edited on Thu Mar-06-08 12:24 AM by Levgreee
With it looking like Obama will surpass Hillary in delegates in Texas, let's go back a little to this quote....

"If she wins Texas and Ohio I think she will be the nominee. If you don't deliver for her, I don't think she can be. It's all on you," the former president told the audience at the beginning of his speech."


Texas and Ohio... she only got Ohio, so Bill's negative prediction was affirmed. Oopsies, maybe he shouldn't have spoke so soon, because now he has contradicted Hillary.

The Clintons are disappointing me I did look up to them but I cant look up to Rove stuff. It's not the Democratic party principles I have groown fond of. I think when this is done I may feel them no ill will but setting us against each other with distortion it's not so nice

6. I don't blame Bill one bit for looking or a way for Hillary to go on...
...if you were married to her, would you want her coming home any time soon?

9. She won less delegates. So it is essentially a tie, technically a loss.

12. take this in conjunction with another statement Bill made on the Texas Two-Step
In a plea for Caucus voters, Bill said it would be a shame for Hillary to lead in the day only to get it taken away at night.
That is exactly what happened.
