Is a Clinton-Obama Dream Ticket on it’s way? Are Hillary and Barack soon to be running mates?Â Would Obama be Hillary Clinton’s VP? Would Hillary be Obama’s
Since the debate on Thursday night, January 31, 2008- the first time Clinton and Obama debated alone, there has been major buzz about that possibility.Â And with an essential tie (going to Obama) on Super Tuesday, they both have strong support throughout the country.
Â If Hillary wins the nomination, would Obama agree to be VP? And vice versa?
Â There are lots of arguments that neither one would be excited about the idea.Â But there’s another angle.Â If Hillary wins, there will be TREMENDOUS pressure from the people to choose Obama as VP/ What does he bring to the table? Enthusiasm, hope and young people who may not bother to vote for “over the Hill” Hillary Clinton.Â But the people will rise up and ask him to accept, and be in a position to be President in 8 years.Â And in spite of personal reservations, he cannot decline.Â Hillary wouldn’t be excited about having a VP so popular that half the dems are just waiting for him to take the lead. But she cannot choose someone else. the pressure is too strong.
Â And if Obama wins, would Hillary be VP? It’s hard to picture her in that roll. She’s too big for vp.Â And age would be a real factor in 8 years. It doesn’t seem as likely. And yet, who could Obama choose that would bring over the Clinton voters? And what about the many many women who were excited about a woman at such a high level?
What do you think? Will there be a Clinton Obama ticket? What about an Obama Clinton ticket? Now that super Tuesday has come and gone, it’s looking more and more likely this could go all the way until the Denver Democratic convention before this is all worked out, and a joint ticket may be the only way to get either party to stand down.
WouldÂ you rather see Hillary Obama or Obama Hillary?Â Would they choose each other for VP?
Â It’s interesting to look at long term scenarios, but elections aren’t really about 8 years from now. They are about today.Â So TODAY, is the democratic Dream Team Ticket of Obama and Hillary Clinton the best possible ticket?
Â What do you think?
