Clinton Calls Rumors of Her Being Obama’s Vice President “Flatly Untrue”

Late last week, while apologizing for her comments about Bobby Kennedy, Clinton also addressed rumors that she has been in secret talks with the Obama campaign about her being Obama’s running mate: “It is flatly untrue and it is not anything I’m entertaining.  It is nothing I have planned and it is nothing I am prepared to engage in. I am still vigorously campaigning. … I would look to the camp of my opponent for the source of these stories.  People have been trying to push me out of this ever since Iowa.”  Some rebutted Clinton’s statement saying that it was actually CNN and the New York Times that put these stories out, but it’s very possible that Obama leaked a story, has connections that got stories published.  I’m not saying he did, and I’m not saying he didn’t.  I’m just saying that what Clinton said  could be true.

The Obama campaign also denied that any secret talks had taken place.

Meanwhile, Representative Dianne Feinstein (D-CA-Clinton) told reporters the that if Obama becomes the nominee, she would like to see Clinton as his running mate: “I think as this race has emerged each one of them has garnered a different constituency and different states, and therefore when you put the two of them together it forms, I believe, the strongest ticket.  Women feel very strongly about Hillary and African-Americans feel very strongly about Barack, and the election results show that, and the young versus old, the higher educated versus the working person. … All these things are sort of separated out into one or the other so there is a logic in combining the two constituencies.”

I honestly can’t see Clinton taking the position as VP, and I can’t see Obama being that stupid.  There would be feuds in the White House.  It would probably go down as one of the worst President-VP combos since the passing of the 12th Amendment and the choosing of running mates.

Of course their mere bickering now, and the inevitable fist fight some 3 months down the road, should they run on the same ticket, will secure the Presidency for John McCain.

    Don’t get me wrong, I like John McCain too; he seems to be a great guy, personable, likable, a kind of guy that you could invite over to a BBQ. Yeah sure, I respect him for his military service. No it doesn’t bother me that he graduate in the bottom 5% of his class from the Naval Academy, (hey I dropped out of High school) or that he crashed 4 planes,(I crashed my car twice) or even that he was shot down on his first mission over Vietnam,(hey, I’m three time loser) or even the that he started singing like a bird when captured by the NVA, without being tortured, or that he cheated on his wife, while in office, and is trying to portray himself as the candidate for family values, hey who am I to judge, I’ve mad my fair share of mistakes and then some, so who am I to judge McCain for his.

    What really gets me is that some of your readers, won’t name any names, (hint:on a 2001 car trip to Florida), spoke about how Bush was going to do this, and bush was going to do that, and how the economy was going to be better. What happened? We started out with a surplus and eight years later were going to end up with the biggest deficit by a president ever recorded in history, and McCain supported Bush 95% of the time.

    Our economy has tanked, our Gas Prices have skyrocketed and everything from the cost of food to diapers has gotten insanely expensive. I won’t mention how many Americans lost their jobs, or the tax breaks to companies that ship American Jobs overseas. Maybe those of you that are well off can afford the basic necessities, or have a nest egg to carry you over until the economy gets better, but many Americans, including myself cannot.

    We went to war in IRAQ on a LIE, remember WMDs, 4,146 soldiers are dead 30,182 wounded for a LIE .How did Americans get duped into agreeing to spend 12 Billion a month in Iraq for a war that shouldn’t even be? So far we spent $368 billion on military operations, $45 billion more in veterans care, diplomatic services, training with that type of money we could of rebuilt the nation’s Infrastructure, invested in alternative energy and established our own Universal Healthcare.

    Come on, be honest, when “W” changed his focus from looking for Bin Laden in Afghanistan to invading Iraq, you weren’t all scratching your head thinking “why in the hell are we doing that?” Intelligent and hardworking Americans such as yourselves?, didn’t have any doubt about that decision? OK, ok, I will give you the benefit of the doubt.

    What about when the excuse for invading Iraq was proven to be a LIE, WMDs? How about then? Were you outraged? No. no, you just voted him back into office for another four years, with the excuse, “Well,we want him to finish what he started.” What!? Come on, wake up! If that was any other American, he would be in prison.

    John McCain has been in Washington for a long time, twenty-six years and nothing’s has changed. He is out of touch with reality. He doesn’t even understand economics and even admits it himself,

    “The issue of economics is not something I’ve understood as well as I should,” McCain said on December 17 in New Hampshire,

    I’m astounded, How can smart, Intelligent, hardworking people want McCain for president? Don’t get me wrong, I like John McCain, even after all the crappy things he has done, even after all his flopping around on issues like a fish out of water, I like him, just not as my Next President!

    I am 36, and this will be my first election that I will vote in: presidential or otherwise. It’s Time for a change in Washington.

    It’s time for a president for the people, from the people, someone who has seen the same hardships that we have, made the same kind of sacrifices we made, and works hard for success, Think about that when you cast your ballot in November.

    It’s not necessarily that I love McCain, but I can’t stand Obama.

    I’ve said that the Iraq War is a mistake.

    I know that he’s not so great at economics, but at least he doesn’t want to tax the heck out of everybody other than people who are below the poverty line.

    And sarcastically blaming him for getting shot down in Vietnam is just being unpatriotic.
