Anyone else thinking Hillary definitely won't get the VP slot?
Edited on Mon Mar-10-08 08:08 PM by adoraz
After the last few days, I don't think she will be offered it. Obama has shown zero interest in her being VP. If he had wanted her to be VP, wouldn't it make sense for him to do that same thing Clinton is doing now (hinting/offering the position)?

Also today in Mississippi he said people can't have both on the ballot, which further proves the point.

I really hope he doesn't offer her the VP slot, because I think they would lose. I don't even know if she would accept it though.

2. I don't think she has the temperament to be VP
They're both alphas. This is why they're duking it out.

5. She would NEVER take it.
She's "in it to win it". It's all or... doom for everyone in the way.

31. Agree Peacebird
I don't see that she offers anything to the ticket.

Want a woman?

There are 4-5 better ones.

but not the way she's been acting. No way.

12. In fairness, she would help him get the Hispanic vote....
And Mccain is said to be considering a woman running mate, so Hillary could balance it out.

28. I think Richardson would make a GREAT VP
and not just because of the Hispanic vote. But that helps. :P

than 75% of white guys out there.

15. Not only will he not offer it (if he wins) but he'll be a jerk about highlighting that fact
He thinks that he has all her voters--he doesn't. He doesn't even have mine. Obama is the most arrogant politician I have ever seen. Worse then Bush. And even Bush will eventually recognize some mistakes--Obama is incapable of acknowledging ever doing anything wrong. He truly seems to believe that he was born in Bethlehem.

18. I agree it is a losing ticket
If the Dems force this for unity, it would be suicidal. Obama needs national security weight against McCain, and so does Clinton, for that matter. Neither of them helps the other.

Edited on Mon Mar-10-08 08:15 PM by caligirl
Why would you select someone as Veep who is an anathema to your approach and policy.If she were to take over everything he starts is undone by her. No way should he select her.

25. Hillary's OWN McCain has more experience gaffe ensures Obama CANT offer her the VP slot
After that little outburst, Obama has no choice but to bring onboard someone with true foreign policy experience.

Hillary doesnt qualify.

33. McCain/Clinton? Hmmmmm
The last time McCain ran he asked Kerry to be his running mate so it would come as no suprise for him to ask Hillary (or vise-versa). The suprise would be for Hillary to turn it down.

29. Alternative question: Who's really running for VP ?
If Obama is running for VP, he's playing hard to get.
If Hillary is running for VP, is it because she has a harder roe to hoe than Obama to come out of the convention as the nominee ?

I'll bet you all a cup of coffee that after the last primary/before the convention, we will have our nominee.

35. Neither of them....
Hillary is hoping to do one of two things.

Either
1. steal the nomination this time.
2. trash Obama so bad now that he doesn't have a prayer to win the nomination.

Hillary knows that if Obama wins, she will look like an ass running against a sitting Democratic President. If he wins the nomination, and loses the GE, in 4 years she can play the "I told you so" card. I think she believes that she will be to old to run in 8 years, so it's now, or in 2012 and that is it.

Barack, and Michelle, have both stated that this is a now or never time for them. Most of it has to do with family issues and the timing of their children's age. Michelle explained it the best one time on television - their children are young enough to understand that their father has done something amazing, but young enough not to understand all the negative things that will be said about her father in the public eye.

34. These two don't fit together
Obama's message is change and a new kind of politics. It is the basis of his appeal. How can he pull that message off with a Clinton on the ticket? And why would he take on her incredible baggage as far as negatives?

43. He Won't Offer
(If he offered, she wouldn't accept it.)

And the potential combination punch of not offering and then making a poor alternate VP choice would cost Obama the presidency.
