Mr & Mrs Clinton: Is Obama ready to be president or not?
Mrs Clinton says that Obama isn't ready to be president. "All he has is a speech," etc. She, on the other hand, can lead from day one. He can't.

Then Mr. Clinton talks up the idea of a Clinton-Obama ticket. Um, the vice president is supposed to be ready to be president in a moment's notice. Surely Bill wouldn't suggest someone for VP that he didn't feel was ready to assume the presidency at any time, whether its day 1 or later. That would be a reckless move designed only for political gain in the election.

So which is it, Clintons: is he ready or not?

1. Also, for someone "not ready", he's doing a good job of wiping up the floor with her highness.
Funny....one would almost think a former president/governor and former first lady and current senator would have no problem against this "inexperienced" newcomer.

2. I think I have the Clinton strategy of wanting Obama as VP figured out
They know Hillary cant win the nomination outright, so now they are angling to appeal to get the super delegates vote with this current nonsense.

Their only hope left is to obtain a majority of SD's to nominate her to avoid a floor fight at the convention by promising she will only serve one term as President to establish her in the history books as the first female President.

The Clintons think that if they can get the SD's to force Obama to acquiesce to this he can run for President in 2012 from the VP slot.

Its desperation of the worst kind.

3. Could you please provide a link where she talks up the idea of a Clinton-Obama ticket.
I have not heard anything of the kind.

I have heard her say that she is aware that there are a lot of people (like me) who wish they could vote for both. And I have heard her say that that may happen at some point, but it is premature at this time.
