    Is there a way that they can possibly eliminate each other? :smilewinkgrin:

    It appears they will both be on the Democratic ticket. It's now a matter which is president and which is vice.

    No. I can't see them on the same ticket. It does seem that Hillary's days as a candidate are numbered. Sorry, but her personality is simply too grating for her to win the nomination. The worst part of her performance was on Saturday when she was asked if she could cite anything...ANYTHING that she had said in a previous debate that she regretted. Nope, she couldn't think of a thing. Instead she turned this into a diatribe against Obama. I think that Hillary is a brilliant person, but, politically, she simply has a tin ear.

    Seeing Clinton go down the tubes on one side is as much fun as seeing Romney getting thrashed on the other.

    I've come around to where I would prefer Obama as president to Clinton. As even Joe Scarbrough said today this is the best reception to a message of hope in American politics since the tragic event of June 6, 1968.

    Does anyone think Clinton is just going to roll over? They have a well-financed machine that will do what it takes. The Dem primary is far from over.

    Certainly it is a long way from now until February 5th.

    I thought the party put the ticket together? You hate to say it, but they are about the best hope the demacrats have.

    This is going to be a really tough election for me to decide who to support.

    Not really.

    They wouldn't even think of saddling a presidential candidate with a running mate not approved by the candidate.

    You mean like Andrew Jackson and Lincoln. I don't think you could be more opposite than those two.

    And now look at this on Atlas Shrugs which, after railing at the media for failing to report what is actually going on in Kenya, makes the following claim:
    Raila Odinga has, in his own words, a 'close personal friendship' with Barrack Hussein Obama Junior.When Obama went to Kenya in August of 2006, he was hosted by Raila and spoke in praise of him at rallies in Nairobi: Obama's bias for his fellow Luo was so blatant that a Kenya government spokesman denounced Obama during his visit as Raila's ‘stooge.’ ​
    Oh dear. Maybe this is what Obama means by being the candidate of ‘change’.

    Very disturbing.

    A liberal Democrat is a liberal Democrat. I am much more concerned about getting a true conservative nominated for the Republicans.

    No.

    The party may have some influence, but the candidate makes the choice. If the parties put together the tickets we would have seen some much different VP's choices over the last 20 years.

    I do not see Hillary or Obama selecting the other.

    Of course she is not going to roll over. However, if this excitement and momentum from Obama continues she will have no choice in the matter despite how much money she has.

    You cannot deny that the polls are changing quickly and not in her favor. There are even reports out that say some of her insiders are quietly talking about exit strategies from the campain.

    It still would not surprise me in the least to see her win the nomination, however it better get started soon.

    What can I say - I believe him to be a muslim in disguise. Which would explain him being the only democrat not standing with his hand over his heart during the National Anthem. All others on the platform, including Hillary honored the American flag.

    See video here: http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=3759803

    He no longer wears the American flag lapel pin, as do the other candidates. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/Story?id=3690000&page=1

    My prediction for months now is that Hillary will win the Presidency and Obama will be her Veep. It looks right now, though, that Hillary may not be in the picture after all, and he may just slide into the presidency by himself. It is a scary thought. I don't expect him to take the Oath of Office on the Bible, but expect him to suddenly "return to the religion of his father" just before inauguration and take the Oath on the Koran. This is my prediction unless Americans wake up, which they probably won't.

    Edited to say: CAIR has not officially endorsed Obama yet, but on checking one of their political web sites, they were quite pleased with the outcome in Iowa.
