Super Tuesday

The Democrats had almost TWICE as many people turn out to vote in their primary than the Republicans did. That’s impressive. Clinton and Obama remain no less neck-and-neck than they were when they started, which makes me think that the smartest thing they could do would be to select the other one (whoever doesn’t win the nomination) to be their VP. Clearly, both have a strong base of support, and they’d make a hell of a ticket for McCain-Huckabee, which is what I am now convinced will be the Republican ticket. But I wonder – can either Clinton or Obama put aside their egos and accept a VP role? It’s hard to picture either one of them doing so. But pragmatically speaking, it’s the smartest option. And in the big picture, ultimately, it’s what would be best for our country. Because the consequences of having a Bush lapdog and another religious conservative for four more years could be devastating for this country.

  1. I agree with your assessment. Unfortunately, I think they need the non-democrats (Republicans, independents, etc.) to win–and that any configuration of a Obama-Clinton ticket would be viewed as too liberal.

    I think to win over the non-democrats, they will both choose a southern, moderate, white male. As suggested, someone like Wesley Clark.

  2. You couldn’t find anything because I can’t spell. She’s a moderate Democrat and an immensely popular governor of a red-state. She has a history of turning Republicans into Democrats. (Oh, she’s also endorced Obama).
