Without it I will vote for McCain. No threat, but I know the OC-“Dream TEam” is Senators Obama and Cinton. Together the things they a accomplish will be amazing. Since he is able to reach across the party aisles, then why not reach across to Senator Clinton and her supporters. GO Dream Team—-OC

This is where we see just how smart he is , its obvious to even me that his best pick by a big margin would be Hillary Clinton. If he fails to pick her ,it will be the beginning of the end for Obama and his wish to be the first multi-racial President ! This is not speculation ,its a fact ,he neeeds to set his pride aside and make the smart choice ,the only choice. His biggest concern should be will Hillary accept his offer ,not if he should chose her or not !

If he really wants to excite democrats in a way they’ve never ever been excited before he will pick Hillary. If he picks some unknown it will be a major let down to the party and he’ll alienate half his base. He is not as exciting as he thinks he is, and the point that she would have won if it weren’t for Edwards is a viable point. He must keep that in mind in picking the VP if he really wants to trash McCain come November.

I think the obama campaign is underestimating the women voters. She would make a great vp.

She brings 18 million voters and appeals to demographics where Obama is weak. She’s strong on issues where Obama does less well against McCain (e.g., national security). It would unite the party (for real) and minimize McCain’s divide and conquer strategy. It would bring excitement and energy to the ticket. The majority of Obama supporters are lukewarm about Clinton at best but it’s not like they’re going to abandon their candidate. The Clintons are prolific fundraisers and terrific campaigners. Obama needs Bill stumping for him in rural OH and PA. Obama is a new product and seems risky to some people. Obviously the republicans will exploit that. The Clinton brand, tarnished though it may be, is well known. Bill left office with a 68% approval rating.

Bill is scheduled to speak Wednesday night at the convention before the VP nominee. Who could follow him other than Hillary? And the next night, who could follow Hillary except Barack? Then our one big happy family can take back the white house by a landslide. Otherwise, I think it’s a toss up.

I doubt Obama would want to face a McCain/Romney ticket for example with some no-name Democrat. Obama right now is nowhere near where he should be in the polls considering Bush’s low popularity. Mind that, Democrat congress isn’t all that popular either.

Don’t care much for Clinton, but she’s a fighter and much better than Barack. She’s probably better off waiting till 2012 and hope McCain wins. Don’t be shocked if Obama blows it.

Obama and his supporter need to do the SMART THING and GET HILARY ON THE VP TICKET.

Otherwise they will lose and we will all be the worse for it…and Obama will be another has been … like Kerry and Gore.

Obama you need to be a BIG GUY and now is your opportunity.

Let Obama sink or swim on his own. I am a lifelong Democrat, reliable contributor to the DNC and Dem candidates in the past years- but not this time. I am voting John McCain. I mail all of Obama’s mail solicitations back (in the pre-paid envelope) with a “Not a Dime” written in bold face.
I would urge Hillary not to accept the VP slot even if offered. We simply cannot afford this arrogant empty suit as President in these perilous times.
