So last night she refused to concede defeat or even acknowledge Obama’s victory while at the same time she kept sending word via media reports and ‘exclusives’ that she’s ‘open’ to the VP slot.
Today, with yet another day passing and her stubborn refusal to concede defeat she has dispatched her surrogates and campaign staff to various outlets around the country with an agenada of pushing for Obama to give her the VP slot.
I understand that this is a difficult time for Senator Clinton she has lost a race and a nomination that was once inevitably hers but if the shoe was on the other foot would Obama and his supporters have any clout in convincing her and her people in choosing him as her VP?
Hillary Clinton is behaving like a woman scorned and a vindictive one at that and in the end it will cost her and her husband their reputations and their standing within the democratic party-their strong arm, underhanded tactics have already cost her the nomination I guess they figure they have nothing else to lose.
***Update*** She plans to concede and congratulate Obama on Saturday at an event to be held in D.C.
So why are the major networks talking as though he is?
Senator Ted Kennedy has been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. It’s a serious, serious, serious health concern and he should be in all of our thoughts and prayers.
However, what’s bothering me is the coverage of this event. All the major anchors and networks are covering this as though he’s dead. They’ve been asking his fellow senators for their thoughts about him, co workers who worked with him about what it was like working with him etc, etc and their tone has been so somber that if you weren’t following closely you would really think he’s past on.
I mean come on people, the man is probably in his hospital room watching all the coverage wtih a confused look on his face and asking his wife Vicki, “Hon, I’m still alive right?”
I really think the tone could be more positive rather than so somber if there is anyone in the Senate who can beat this ‘thing’ it would be Ted Kennedy so reporters and anchors shouldn’t be writing his eulogy just yet.
The ‘word’ involved in this context is a kicker isn’t it?…lol
The NY times is reporting that the first term NY democratic governor is about to be named as a client in a prostitution ring apparently he’s about to make an announcement….
I know everyman has two sides but this is unacceptable if proven to be true. I can’t wait to hear what he has to say…I really hope that if it’s true he resigns and that he goes away swiftly before this causes even more problems for the democrats.
Man oh man the democratic party is something else in an election year where we’re holding all the cards, great candidates, loads of money and a receptive political climate we’re going to blow it all. Believe me, we liberals will find someway to muck it all up and at the same time give ammunition to the Republicans and for years to come we’ll be talking about what went wrong! You just wait..watch you’ll see…
I’m so serious when I say this but if the democrats lose this general election I’m becoming a Republican!!!
CNN’s John King just said that President Bush, the President of these the entire United States..has never been to Vermont..I don’t believe that..that’s amazing!
How could that be?
Regardless of how liberal a state Vermont is he’s the president of the people in Vermont too and he should at least go there before the end of his presidency..you know it’s no wonder they voted to impeach him… lol
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?
Mccain and Romney went after each other tonight at the CNN’s Republican Presidential Debate.
But neither emerged victorious.
Romney, I must admit showed his proficiency on economic issues and how he would lead the country out of the current economic ‘crisis’ but I don’t think that he was able to overcome his huge likeablility deficit. As knowledgeable as he is when it comes to economic issues, he appears to be a mega rich, phony, flip flopper who’ll say anything to get elected.
And you know what I still don’t like the guy..he still comes of as a fraud..lol.
As for John Mccain. He’s a leader when it comes to the war in Iraq. He’s an honorable, LIKEABLE man and he’s someone that you could count on to lead the country even if the country doesn’t agree with him he will lead and he will lead to the best of his ability. But he doesn’t display his knowledge on issues other than the war in Iraq, foreign policy and the military. And after George Bush we need our leaders to know a lot about somethings and be verse in most things!
As for Ron Paul wrong time, wrong place. He has great ideas but come one now..it’s getting tiresome..I’m all for the Ron Paul Revolution but it’s over people! John Edwards finally admitted defeat when will Ron Paul?
And Mike Huckabee, didn’t get much air time tonight but as usual he had the best jokes and sounded the most sincere and genuine. However, you can’t rely on that alone. He has got to show that he knows something about the issues and once again I didn’t get that impression. He might be on the right side of many of the important conservative issues but he’s not getting the traction that he needs in order to get those ’conservative credentials’ out there instead he’s seen as too liberal on immigration and taxes, two of the holy grail issues for Republicans.
None of these candidates, including the front runner John Mccain, is the whole package and if I were a conservative I would be quite disheartened!
