    I think that when the primaries/caucuses are all said and done that by the time we get to Denver that it will be an Obama/Clinton ticket. It just makes too much sense politically for it not to happen. They appeal to very different constituencies. The combination would basically remove the hard feelings that any Clinton supporters might have because she doesn't win the presidential nomination. It would be an historic major party ticket. It would still be a chance for Senator Clinton to make history as the first woman vice presidential candidate. It would practically ensure a Democratic win unless Senator McCain could get a fellow GOP heavyweight to run with him and we saw in the GOP primaries that there aren't very many of them around.

    Call me a dreamer if you like but I think an Obama/Clinton ticket will happen and roll to victory on November 4.

    I don't think Obama could trust Clinton as Vice President nor vice versa.

    Won't happen. There's too much bad blood now.

    This infighting will continue until the convention, and then a weakened Obama will lose to John McCain this fall.

    Trust would be a mute point unless they defeat the McCain/?????? ticket first.

    Remember the 1960 election and the Kennedy/Johnson ticket?

    I think this is highly possible, and like you say, it would both heal the bad blood between the backers of both candidates, and be a formidable force against the republicans.

    I know I would surely vote for such a ticket!

    I doubt either one of them is willing to play second fiddle to the other.

    1. It is not 1960 any longer.

    2. dragon, you are going to vote for the democratic ticket regardless.

    This is just my opinion but I don't think that will happen. Whoever wins the Democratic nomination would be best advised to choose someone who is clearly perceived to be a centralist as their vice presidential candidate.

    I do not see why Obama would pick Clinton. She is way too polarizing and would end up hurting his campaign.

    I agree with BaptistBeliever Obama would be better served in choosing a centrist as his VP.

    It won't matter. They're both unelectable, and the super delegates will step in and nominate Bill Richardson, which is what should have been done in the first place. That's wht the dems have super delegates, because on top of thinking you cling to yer god, guns, and fear of non-whites, they also think you don't know how to elect a candidate. They are there to prevent another '72, & '80. They don't trust you.

    But back to my first point, if you saw that debate last nite, and 10 million of you did, you saw Obama looking like a deer in the headlights, amd Hillary to incompetent to deliver the final blow. There is now no way America will put either of these two in the White House, I have enough faith to say that.

    But I'm going to be staying up nights worrying about a McCain presidency.

    Curtis, I thought I have read you say you think Hillary is going to win it.

    You really think they are going to throw these 2 out and nominate Richardson??

    Yes! I am a democrat. I would not rule out voting for a republican, but after eight years of Bush, I plan to support the democratic candidate in this election.

    Surely Bro. Curtis doesn't believe that. It is the most far-fetched thing I have heard of in a long time. :laugh:

    No way Obama picks Clinton. And even if he'd want to, no way she'd play second fiddle to anyone. Clinton might pick Obama, but I doubt it. I third the motion that they both would be best served picking someone less polarizing. I doubt they will heed that advice. I think the VEEP picks on both sides will be very interesting.

    The both of them are completely unelectable. I know if they don't step in, Hillary will win the nomination, I still believe that. But the S.D.s must remember McGovern, and Dukakis, and the 2nd Carter run. People won't elect either of these two president. After that debate the other nite, I am convinced McCain will cream either of them.

    Not that that's good news.

    If there is, I wonder how much I can scalp it for.

    America loses big time with any of these three, but we'd lose less (slower) with McCain.

    It is amazing to me to see these liberals promising liberal agendas and the public going along with it.

    Too bad the oval office doesn't attract the best this nation has to offer.
