    Now that it seems that the DNC is goint to shaft the feminist movement by choosing Obama, do you think Obama is obligated to choose a woman as his VP, either Clinton or someone else?

    What a great representation of a "Do nothing Congress" it would be if he were to take Nancy Pelosi as his VP. :laugh: :laugh: Talk about an "All talk and no substance administration".:laugh: :laugh:

    I would like to see him pick Senator Jim Webb of Virginia. He is the epitome of the Reagan Democrat in the 1980s.

    Jim Webb is way too conservative. The two of them in the white house would make the Clinton/Obama fight look tame.

    ==I don't buy into those type of ideas. When people goto the polls they vote for who they like. There is no mass or collective consciousness. It just so happens that voters are shifting towards Obama and not Clinton (if Florida and Michigan are not counted).

    I still think Obama might pick Clinton.

    And I agree - I've always said it will be either Obama/Clinton or Clinton/Obama. So for once we agree, dragonfly.

    I don't think Hillary will play second fiddle to anyone. I believe she is keeping in this race to throw votes to McCain so she can run again in 2012...

    I agree completely, assuming you are referring to serving in a prominent decision making position. But putting Condi in her position in light of the Islamists view of women, was genius. But wrong.

    Not at all if he does get nominated. I would think he would do like every other presidential nominee has done, choose a VP candidate that enhances his chances of getting elected. Clinton should do the same if nominated. Personally, I think that an Obama/Clinton ticket would be a weak one.

    I heard on the radio today that there has never before been a call for a democratic candidate to quit until now. I wonder why?
