Michelle Obama has spoken; No VP Hillary

There has been a buzz about an Obama/Clinton ticket since the early days of the primaries when media types fawned over both candidates and lamented how they wish that a vote could be cast for each. Will you run on one ticket, a dream ticket?

Early on Hillary said that the idea was a good one but it remained to be determined who would get top billing and Barack seemed open to the idea with similar concerns about top billing. With Obama in the lead it would appear that any unified ticket would have to have her playing second banana to the Obamination. Hillary would not like the idea but might be willing to do it just to get closer to the top spot. Obama might be willing to have Hillary as the VP because it would partially placate her disillusioned supporters who still believe that misogyny is at the root of her demise.

I have a bet with a coworker who believes the combined ticket will occur while I believe there is no way in hell that they will run together. It would take credibility away from both of them to combine (though most politicians rarely worry about credibility). He portrays her as part of the politics as usual crowd of DC and she says he cannot garner the white vote and has not been properly vetted. These are valid arguments and show how the ugliness of the protracted campaign further hamstrings the Democratic party and its choices.

I believe there is one factor here than trumps all others and that is the Michelle Obama factor. She does not like Hillary and she also knows that Hillary as VP brings the baggage of Bill who will hover. They would make Obama an outsider in his administration. Not to mention the fact that Mrs. Obama does not like Hillary Clinton and is not happy with the tactics employed by the Clinton campaign.

Michelle Obama is upset that Clinton keeps dragging this out even though she cannot mathematically win the number of pledged delegates needed to take the nomination outright. Never mind the reality that Barack Obama cannot win outright either. The nomination will go to the super delegates and they can do anything they wish. It is likely that Obama will get the number of votes he needs but one can never count the Clintons out and this is a fact of which Michelle is well aware. She has to be worried that the nomination will be taken from her husband and once again plunge her into a position where she is not proud of her country. Why should Clinton concede when anything can happen among the super delegates?

There are many reasons that an Obama/Clinton ticket is unwise but no matter how many reasons there are for or against the only opinion that will really count is the one offered by Mrs. Obama. She does not want Hillary on the ticket and therefore Hillary will not be on that ticket.

No man wants to go through life hearing his wife repeat “I told you so.”

    We know who wears the pants in that family — Michelle. If Barack Hussein Mohammad Obama even mentions having Hillary on the ticket, Michelle will bitch slap him out of that idea. The Democrat Party may try to force Hillary on Obama, but they will have the wrath of Michelle do deal with.

  2. Debbie says:

    p.s. My husband has a steak dinner bet with a friend that somehow Hillary will still pull this think out and she will be the candidate. Never count the Clintons out.

  4. I see this being terrible for the Democratic party. The entire process for their party has thus far been a complete failure. Their voters are split down the middle; their leadership, the super delegates are sitting idly by while the two of them duke it out.

    Just my feelings, but I don’t see things turning out well in November, no matter who gets the nomination. Either way someone is going to end up crying about it; my personal hopes are that Mrs. Obama goes back to being a rebel that isn’t proud of our country.

    At this point I think that any pressure Hillary puts on Obama will be about his choice for VP. If Clinton pulls out a 20 to 40 point win in Kentucky and West Virginia then the pressure will be pretty great to place her on the ticket. People will ask “How can the front runner still be losing by margins like that?” and the questions won’t go away…

    I feel like now the only way Clinton will to quit the race is if Obama gives her first choice for the VP, which she may not even want, or a decent say in who it is. A 2-4% lead is not much when the race is this close so Obama as a front runner has to tread lightly. If Clinton or her supporters feels burned by Obama then she may just drag this thing out to the convention and try to burn him to the ground in Denver.

    I think at this point it all hinges on how Obama handles the situation. If he treats the Clinton campaign with respect then he’ll get a good result in return. If his campaign continues to treat her like she’s a Ron Paul 15-20% candidate just staying in for the heck of it then I think it will get pretty rough.

    The Democratic front-runner’s wife did not comment on other rival candidates for the party’s nomination, but she has been sniping at Clinton since last summer. According to Obama sources, those public utterances do not reveal the extent of her hostility. [emphasis mine]

  24. Concerned American says:

    I am a true blue american and I never in a million years thought we would face such anti-american material as likely presidential material. We cannot allow either of the Obamas near the White House!!! Especially not the bitter, anti-american, ungrateful, rude, crude, ghetto, angry MICHELLE OBAMA!!!

    wow!!! I feel really sorry for all of you Obama haters…Mrs obama is a strong, opinionated black woman…nice to see that still scares you people…ON TO THE WHITE HOUSE BLACK PEOPLE!!!!

  26. dawud o says:

    Oh and by the way, concerned american, what’s more ghetto than lying to the american people for 7 years? Idiotic (and yes racist)statements like that is exactly what keeps this country in an arrogant, bullheaded haze.

  27. Markos says:

    I hope to GOD that Obama does NOT put Hillary AND Bill Clinton as his Vice President[s]. It would be a summary DISASTER. He would be dead in a New York minute. I hope his wisdom, determination and levelheadedness does not leave in the lurch on this most critical question to which IMHO the answer is a definitive, “No.”

    There is no way that Obama should put Hillary on his ticket. She is a horrible person and although some people state that she is not a racist, using race when you want to stir up trouble and problems just so that you can win is racist in nature.

  30. Yo V says:

    Okay here is my thought… Hillary and friends BUSH/ClinToN’s 28 years so far… ; she already planted the seed of assassination so now she and others bush…REALLY WANTS to be PRESIDENT so now her plan is to get VP spot and if Obama does not get assassinated by some random act in time she/ her people WILL have him taken out and she will be president and we all will suffer!!! If you don’t get this search around a bit!
