Reaching Out

with 2 comments

According to the Associated Press, H. Clinton floats the idea that her name with Obama’s could be an option on the November Presidential ballot.

“That may be where this is headed,” she told CBS News this morning.  “But of course we have to decide who is on the top of ticket. I think the people of Ohio very clearly said that it should be me.”

I went on a discourse about this last night. I take this as a hint from H. Clinton that it might be best for them to end it now and work towards a Democrat win in November as opposed to continuing and making the race ugly.  Because if it continues it will get ugly because H. Clinton wants the nomination badly. 

So now the ball is in Obama’s court and he has to decide how he wants to play it.  If he continues he could get the nomination but chances are it will be an ugly win and he may get reduced to going where he had no intention of ever being (love and hope can get you only so far with a bloodlusting electorate).  If he aligns with H. Clinton he will play second fiddle; they can win the White House and he will have to watch her employ her undercover Republican tactics on a nation while she’s in Democrat sheeps clothing, but the party will stay in tact.

Hard decision.  Glad I’m not him.

  1. McCain – the Old White Dude in question – will most likely win in November, in no small part do to Clinton’s efforts. It’s going to be a horribly divided Democrat party going into the General Election – and they’re going to be going up against a unified Republican opposition.

  2. You make an excellent point. If people who vote for Obama mostly do so because he is black, then he (the person he is) would not matter. Any black person put in his place would, by that hypothesis, do just as well. As you point out with the Jesse Jackson example, that is not the case.

    To say that he owes his position to being black certainly fails to give his efforts and abilities credit. Obama has earned his success and to simply say he has acquired by simply being black is an insult to his efforts and to his supporters. It is also an insult to the people who may not support him but also regard him as a worthy candidate.

    I’m sure some people are voting for him because he is black, for Hillary because she is a woman, and for McCain because he is not black or a woman. But, I think quite a few people make their choices based on other factors.
