It’s looking great! I did the same thing with election results. Then I listened to the Will.i.am Obama song and wrote a story about it. If only all the pols spoke to us like this: http://www.moli.com/p/election_center//article/199668

So if Obama wins (and I believe he will because he is more electable than Hillary Clinton), to whom does he offer the VP spot?

I think the majority of Hillary Hate is unfounded. Republicans loathe the Clintons because they’re the only Democrats who can and do play politics the way the Republicans do: to win. I’m not sure if Obama taking the high road can survive the inevitable down and dirty mud-slinging The GOP will resort to if he becomes the nominee. On the other hand, he has an amazing ability to rally Americans behind truth, liberty, and justice; to spur us all to action after we have dared to hope for something better.

Love it or hate it, The Clintons know politics and how to play to win. So I’d support an Obama/Clinton ticket. We need Obama to inspire and rally us, and a VP candidate (and Presidential Cabinet) who can help make those dreams reality – especially now that we’re headed into a full blown recession with teh war dragging on and on.

I think Obama got the nomination that he should pick Edwards not Clinton. If Clinton gets the nomination then I wouldn’t want Obama to settle for VP. He can always come back in another four years to run again. I say go for the gold Obama. Don’t stop at VP.

I live in LA and was there at 7:30 and the line was out the door. I too tried to stay up late waiting for numbers to come in… only to be super tired the next morning. I think that time is on Obama’s side. I went to the Women Support Obama rally at UCLA last Sunday and many of the people who were stading in line with me were former Hillary supporters. The moren people hear about him the more they like him. It’s just a matter of time. He hit the nail on the head last night when it said that his campaign started as a whisper and was morphing into a chorus for change. I know that my family in MD will be voting in the upcoming Chesapeake (or Potomac, if you like) primaries and they all are former Hillary supporters. With each primary that comes is even more of an opportunity for Barack to earn more delegates and pull further ahead of Clinton by attracting independants and coverting Republicans into Democrats (my aunt was one of them). This is definately the most attention I have ever given to a primary election!

Lots of folks were on the streets with signs–all the Clinton signs were professionally printed; virtually all of the Obama signs were handmade. The way I read that was Clinton=corporate, Obama=grassroots. I’m not even a Democrat, and I forsook voting for my beloved Cynthia McKinney as the Green Party choice (and she lost 🙁 ) in order to vote in their primary, but I don’t even think it’s about their particular platforms so much as what they represent to people, and their supporters here yesterday were the embodiment of that. As the spouse of a former president Clinton represents a kind of political old guard (I mean, really, do we want 28 years of just 2 families running this country?) while Obama represents a real possibility for change to many people simply because of who he is. I don’t believe in a general election she can pull any of the undecideds or non-partisan voters, let alone any Republicans (ignoring ignorant Ann Coulter). Obama can.

I want Obama to win so badly, but I too am just hoping God will lead the RIGHT person to be the next president. I really hope that this thing is done before the convention. It would be completely sad if it ended up being brokered and 800 “superdelegates” determine the outcome.

Although I think neither would happen, a Clinton/Obama ticket is more likely than an Obama/Clinton ticket. Hell, an Obama/Clinton ticket would NEVER EVER happen. Hillary is not about to sit behind Barack as VP after she was 1st Lady for 8 years. No way in hell! lol! I do think that in the sad case that Barack doesn’t get the nom, he may consider a VP slot. It would position him nicely for another presidential campaign.

Shones: CONGRATS on making your 1st donation! It feels good to donate to such a worthy cause! 🙂

Warrior: Obama/Caroline Kennedy? Caroline seems like a very quiet and private person–not the political type. I’d put big $$$ down that this won’t even be a consideration.

Here it is.

I hope they pick Obama, if they get a corporation to give Hillary money she will definitely sit down.

Time will tell,and if one can segue, Happy Birthday to Buffalo Soldier, Bob Marley.NUFF RESPECT,PEACE,IRIE and ONE LOVE!!
