No to dream ticket

June 6, 2008

Someone once said if you owe the bank $100, the bank owns you. If you owe the bank $100 million, you own the bank.

So Hillary claims that 18 million voters had voted for her so she owns the Democratic party, or at least has the right to set her demands, even though she had lost the contest to Obama fair and square.

On the night of Obama’s historic win, she had her campaign manager introduce her on national TV as the next President of the USA. She sleeps over it and the next day, her surrogates got busy demanding he pick her as running mate or else. For months, she pretty much poops on his head and now she wants to be his no. 2? And not only that, she wants his help to pay off her $21 $30 million campaign debt? What’s on her mind? I have 18 million votes and if you don’t take me in, you will disenfranchise every female democrat and every old person who never went to college? I’ll whine loud enough so that they never vote for you and you will lose the general election in November?

Where I come from, that’s called extortion. All this talk that to reject Hillary is to reject all women is patently absurd. If she denies Obama who had followed the nomination rules to the T, would anyone start claiming that to reject Obama is to reject all African Americans, all Americans who went to college and all Democrats under 40?

Such is an unhinged mind. It completely ignores the fact that not all women voted for Hillary and not all African Americans voted for Obama. It cherrypicks the facts to conveniently serve a false argument. Even if Obama is generous enough to consider her as running mate, the prospect of bad-tempered Bubba and his wagging his finger hanging around in the White House could wreck Bam’s mission of Change. And now we learn that Bubba might actually have some skeletons in his closet that could prove embarrassing to the Democrats’ run for the White House. Nope, bad idea. Don’t do it.

I do think the gentleman in Obama will make him reach out and do the tango with Hillary, just to let her and her followers’ emotions simmer down gradually. And I also trust his good judgement (and Michelle’s) to see that this bizzare ‘marriage’ doesn’t happen.

    Just imagine if Obama wins president title… OBAMA vs OSAMA.. I can find some similarities. Is it coincidence or something historical going to happen… only god knows.

    I support Obama not Hillary and I hope Obama to win president and become the first black president.

    Its interesting that outside the US, there seems to be hardly any support for Hillary and John McCain but plenty of support for Obama. I guess Obama is the signal that the world wants to move past the hawks (Hillary with her nuke Iran thing and McCain’s 100 year war) and give reconciliation a chance. Like it or not, when the US sneezes, the global markets and conflict zones go to red alert.
