Former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore endorsed Barack Obama in Detroit a few hours ago..
Who didn’t see that coming?
Now what would be a surprise is if Obama names him as his running mate..and WE KNOW that ain’t going to happen…LOL
In a few minutes Hillary Clinton will concede to Barack Obama at a rally today at the National Building Museum.
Regardless of all that has been said about Senator Clinton, including many comments I have made on this blog, I congratulate her and her supporters on a job well done!
WEll DONE, MY FRIENDS!!!
Many of us have not always agreed with the tactics you and your staff chose, in order to reach the highest office in the land, however your historic campaign has shown men and women alike that the presidency of the United States is truly, within the grasp of female hands.
Senator Clinton will seek to not only endorse Obama but to unify the Democratic Party by urging her supporters in particular to support and vote for the presumptive Democratic nominee.
Frankly I don’t know if her supporters will fall into line behind Obama however her efforts from henceforth will prove how much she cares about her own legacy, her party and her country.
And should she help to deliver the White House in 2008, to Democratic hands, she can rightfully claim a legacy of her own, while seeking to create a future and a career fully detached from that of her husband’s and for that any woman deserves RESPECT!
I can’t say I didn’t see this coming just didn’t expect it to be so soon..I thought Mitt would let McCain sweat some more bullets over Mike Huckabee before he came over to his side but today at 4pm Mitt Romney is going to endorse McCain and he’s going to throw or ask for his delegates to be given to McCain.
Man I would’ve loved to have been in the room when they talked!
I’m sure Romney isn’t doing this from the goodness of his heart very few politicians do something for nothing and he sure isn’t that kind..fraud man only looks out for himself you can be sure. Some have been speculating that he’s doing this for the VP position but I really can’t see a McCain-Romney ticket that might appease some conservatives but I don’t think ‘real bible belt conservatives’ the ones that McCain needs in order to win would take kindly to him choosing Romney over Huckabee and to me that’s going to be the million dollar question who McCain and Obama choose as their running mates.
Anyway, I think Romney is doing this so he can say in the future, 2012 is just around the corner people, that he put the party first ahead of his own personal dislike of McCain and his liberal tendencies’ and the foresight that he was going to fail (if he doesn’t win the presidency) or succeed in order to garner some points and continue to be in favor with the conservatives and the party establishment and all powerful for doing it, God his fradulent behavior has no end does it?
Now Hillary mentions John Edwards, when he was in the limelight you couldn’t get anyone to talk about him and now that he’s gone everybody is talking about him….man they really want his endorsement bad..don’t they?
The only power John Edwards has ever had since this process began..you know i’m right..lol..
Other than an endorsement what else could Giuliani offer Mccain, it’s not like he’s a good VP choice?
John Kerry is a political loser but he’s a smart, influential loser.
Kerry wants to be on the historical winning team and he wants to continue or enhance his role in any future Democratic presidency. That’s why he has endorsed Obama if I were him I would’ve done the same thing..lol. He also brings quite a lot to Obama’s campaign, his contacts, money (his own contributions and that of his wife Teresa Heinz Kerry we can’t forget her and their ability to raise vasts sums) and the ability to help Obama negotiate the ‘establishment’ world of the Democratic Party of which he is a key player.
Obama wants to change the way that Washington works and he wants to bring about great and long lasting beneficial changes to the American people and the world but he has to win the nomination first. He doesn’t need to convince all of the established interests and sections of the Democratic party to come over to his side but he does need to have some support from some key influential persons within this section of the party in order to solidify his nomination even before it happens and Kerry could be the man to help him do that.
If Kerry can help convince a few more heavy weights to join Obama and help him solcit and win, the key word win a few more big union endorsements between now and Super Tuesday we could be looking at an entirely different playing field for Obama- a better one.
So although Kerry’s endorsment means nothing on the surface, it could mean everything in the long run.
