It’s still a close race, but I think Hillary’s getting really close to getting the democratic nomination. I know a lot of people are really excited about Barack Obama and really want him to get the nomination, but Hillary Clinton is a much better choice. Obama will make a great president in 8 years, after getting more experience in DC politics as a Vice President. And a Clinton/Obama ticket has a much better chance of beating McCain. I’m just throwing it out there.
With Bill Clinton in the White House?
GIVE ME A BREAK !
THAT IS THE BIGGEST FAIRY TALE I HAVE EVER HEARD. !
SO THAT THE CLINTONS CAN TURN HIM INTO ANOTHER VERSION OF THEMSELVES ? LOL
I think Obama can stand on his own. I don’t think there’s much of a chance of him “morphing” into the Clintons. (Not that it’s a bad thing to be a Clinton). I do think having him as a VP for 8 years, will give him the experience he needs and make him a more formidable opponent against any Republican. And I really like the idea of having a democrat in the White House for potentially 16 years.
You think Hillary will let Obama say anything in public and let herself be upstaged?
After spending a term or two with the Clintons, Obama will either go insane or become the kind of politician that has created our present mess.
Eliza….wrong. I know you love the Clintons but there is a greater chance for substantial change with Obama than with the cookiecutter politics Hillary will bring to the table. Obama’s lack of “experience” is a good thing in my mind.
I don’t think Obama’s message is that much different than Hillary’s. The only main difference is the package. A young, less-experienced black man versus an older, more-experienced white woman. However, I do think experience does matter. I remember another “less” experienced politician becoming president, and I’m not talking about Kennedy. I’m talking about George Bush Jr. And I don’t think we’re going to get more change with Obama. If anything, we’re going to see more resistance to Obama from the “old guard” that’s in power. I also think Obama alone will have a tougher chance getting elected. He’s going to have a really hard time getting the Latino vote and he’s going to mobilize a lot of people in the South to vote for McCain. Which is why I think a Clinton/Obama ticket is a strong alternative to either one of those names alone on the ballot.
Please don’t compare Obama with George W. Bush who was a drifter with a drinking problem until he was 40 and then a serially failing businessman after he quit drinking and “found Jesus”
The members of the Project For a New American Century (PNAC) had their agenda prepared and published before they propped up an uninformed, inexperienced, failed businessman named George W. Bush as their poster candidate.
He had great appeal among the good ole boys and the bible thumpers who were not very likely to vote for the scowling man behind the curtain, Dick Cheney.
George W. Bush had not been sitting around for the previous 10 years thinking about foreign policy. Rather, he was being coached on foreign policy by handlers who had to teach him that Africa was a continent and not a country.
Of course Obama will make a good President, someday. Hillary is better now, and with him as VP the Dems will pick up the ‘new’ voters that can help but we really can’t count on in November. If this primary is the first time they voted then where were they when we were trying to defeat Reagan and the Bushes?
Hillary is better positioned to win in the general election, check out this: http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0208/The_rules_mattering.html
IF HILLARY GETS ELECTED, WE CAN BRING BACK BILL!!!!!! BILL WAS GREAT FOR AMERICA!
During the administration of William Jefferson Clinton, the U.S. enjoyed more peace and economic well being than at any time in its history. He was the first Democratic president since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win a second term. He could point to the lowest unemployment rate in modern times, the lowest inflation in 30 years, the highest home ownership in the country’s history, dropping crime rates in many places, and reduced welfare rolls. He proposed the first balanced budget in decades and achieved a budget surplus. As part of a plan to celebrate the millennium in 2000, Clinton called for a great national initiative to end racial discrimination.
He sought legislation to upgrade education, to protect jobs of parents who must care for sick children, to restrict handgun sales, and to strengthen environmental rules.
President Clinton was born William Jefferson Blythe III on August 19, 1946, in Hope, Arkansas, three months after his father died in a traffic accident. When he was four years old, his mother wed Roger Clinton, of Hot Springs, Arkansas. In high school, he took the family name.
He excelled as a student and as a saxophone player and once considered becoming a professional musician. As a delegate to Boys Nation while in high school, he met President John Kennedy in the White House Rose Garden. The encounter led him to enter a life of public service.
Clinton was graduated from Georgetown University and in 1968 won a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University. He received a law degree from Yale University in 1973.
BILLARY/OBAMA ? GIVE ME A BREAK ! THAT IS THE BIGGEST FAIRY TALE I HAVE EVER HEARD !
Bill Clinton has burned far too many bridges behind him for that to happen. If being Vice President is as worthless as a bucket of warm spit, being VP under the Clintons would be worth even less.
William Jefferson Clinton went on the Charlie Rose Show and looked him square in the eye and said that he was against the Iraq invasion from the start and then had the utter gall to say that Obama’s statements on the war were inconsistant. Then he said that the only reason Obama won in South Carolina was because he was black.
If “more seasoning” consists of learning to lie as outrageously as that, I think that Barack is going to pass on that one.
