Enter Hillary?

This is what I wrote in the commentary section of another blog. I want it to be on record, in case it does transpire.

The only way Obama-Biden win now is if Obama sticks a fork in Biden, and brings Hillary on.

Maybe Obama and Hillary already came to an agreement about that, last week, and Obama went to eat crow in person with Bill yesterday.

So, I'm prepared for an announcement soon.

That would also explain why Michelle didn't go with him, to such an important memorial.

My mother asked, "Didn't Michelle want to honour the victims of 9/11?".

I'm guessing if my scenario is true, she hasn't come to terms with the Obama family having to prostrate themselves publicly, yet.

(When another commenter said the disastrously unfeeling anti-McCain email ad, which Team Obama debuted today, was a "headfake", I continued my thoughts)

I agree with the headfake, given my Bill rapprochement scenario.

You know why?

Because such a weak ad, after such a run of them, makes Obama look more than desperate -- it makes him look flailingly incompetent.

So the "email" ad is there to make the 50% of the anti-Hillary crowd in the Democratic Party (Kos, etc.) practically beg Obama to bring Hillary on next week: an unthinkable turn of events a mere 3 weeks ago, during the last day of Invescopalooza.

Enter Hillary, and this election will change on a dime again.


What are your thoughts? Do you think this photo will reflect the opposing candidates for the Vice-Presidential debates?

  • As political theater, it would be a 'Princess Leia is my sister' kind of moment! Shocking, a little incestuous, (via Bill, sotto voce) and most importantly, able to hide Hillary's flaws, as there is increasingly little time left. He doesn't have to 'introduce' her, and the usual muck raking will lose currency as election day draws near.

    Plus, any debating/fighting in the press/ posturing between Hillary and Palin will detract for Obama vs. McCain. The fight between the Veeps will win the news cycle, and how dumb is that!

  • You're giving Hillary both too much and too little credit.

    Too much because she couldn't win it for him now. Barry himself would look like even more of a flailing incompetent, and go down like the Hindenberg.

    Too little because she's not stupid enough to sign on for something like that, just to maybe be second banana for four years and locked out of the top spot for eight.

  • Furthermore, prominent Clintonites -- Mark Penn, Lanny Davis, et al. -- are defending Palin in the media. Not exactly laying the groundwork.

  • It's true she would be locked in, but she could do something that hasn't been done in awhile. She could run in four years, against Obama, if his term doesn't go well. Even if she lost this bid, she wouldn't any worse off, and she might pick him off. Why do we now assume that being elected once means you automatically get the nomination again in four years?

  • Because that's how it is. If Hill runs against him from the VP spot, the black vote is dead to her.

    Besides, you're missing the real point -- she couldn't possibly be better-situated for the 2012 nomination than she is now, only worse. Being VP would be worse. Being on his losing ticket would be worse. There's just no upside.

    If the Clintons are going to get back in the game, it'll be to replace Obama, not Biden. But, I think, neither is going to happen.

  • Then, with respect, Obama is flat out incompetent and any change of circumstances TOTALLY flummoxes him, to the extent he looks utterly unprepared and amateurish.

    Can you imagine a real crisis with this guy at the wheel of the US Presidency? What is going to do -- talk of hopeychangey to Putin?

    It's a wonder this man has gotten so far, EVEN if he brings Hillary on.

    I honestly have to tell you that Obama supporters must be stepping back and comparing him silently in their minds to her.

    She never would've stumbled this badly if McCain had gone with a black candidate (heh) as his VP nomination.

    Not that he would've, but you never know.

  • Yes, Vic, I certainly agree that his indecisiveness gives me the willies. It's one thing to be the VP, but to be like this from day one in The Big Chair...not looking good.

  • I'm glad you put this on record, because it will be fun to read this again, in 7 weeks, when Obama/Biden win and Palin is pushed back where she belongs into obscurity.

    Check the state by state polls on Five Thirty Eight and Pollster and Real Clear Politics, and then show me where you get the idea that Obama/Biden isn't winning. I'll be waiting.

  • We'll just have to wait and see, Zach. My confidence grows daily, is all I will say on the matter.


    By Blogger vbspurs, at Sat Sep 13, 01:15:00 am GMT-4  

  • Even if Obama/Biden win, Palin won't go into obscurity. If anything, the defeat would be blamed on McCain, increasing Palin's chances in 4 years. Even Nixon didn't win at first!

    By Blogger Ron, at Sat Sep 13, 01:47:00 am GMT-4  

  • Obama won't switch to Clinton. If he looks incompetent now, he would simply look like an idiot then. Many of his top advisors would disappear, unwilling to attach their names to a losing, foolish effort.

    McCain/Palin will win and Obama will return to the corrupt, anti-American obscurity he deserves.
