Obama has delegates to clinch nomination
Clinton open to VP spot
I used to think he shouldn't offer her the VP slot, but I am coming around. I think at the very least he should be considering it for the near term and see how the party unifies in the next month. If there is still great division, then perhaps she would be the right choice.
I disagree. I think those like Care and Ravir who hate Obama because of this would still refuse to vote for him, and he wouldn't actually gain anything from offering her the spot.
That and she has too much star power. She is too powerful to be a VP.
You really do sound like a Bushbot.
Because I say you hate a candidate?
You 2 have done nothing but spew on all about Hillary has been cheated, and blah blah blah for ages now. Your not as bad as Care is (who called me a sexist, multiple times, despite the fact that I voted for Hillary over a man before), but yeah I'd say you hate Obama from the vitriol you've spewed in his direction.
I think she still has incredible sway with her supporters. I think most of them will come around of their own accord, but if I am wrong, she could bring most of the rest back. Also, she is very impressive for a VP candidate. She would almost surely outshine McCain's choice, and I don't think Republicans could necessarily mobilize around the idea of Clinton as VP as they could around the idea of Clinton as president.
You aren't quite as smart as you think you are.
none of us are.. (well, except for me)
Its going to be hard for them to backtrack on what they have said about each other. I also think that Barack Obama can do better with someone else.
She's pretty much the best (or only) chance he'd have at winning this thing. Anyone else is a roulette game.
If he really wants to unite the party, she should be his only consideration. What you'll see in the coming months is that more and more bitter Clinton supporters will look to McCain, McCain's lead will increase in swing states, and Obama will beg Clinton to be his VP.
You're right, though. She's too powerful to be VP, and he's not powerful enough to be President. But hey, can't change the will of the voters at this point. OH WAIT, we CAN, because they did it in Michigan.
