Bill Clinton said fairytale. Hillary said slum. Bill Clinton said Jesse.

Obama-Napolitano

That is another possibility.

Janet Napolitano - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

McCain-Romney

That would be a good ticket. I think it would be great to see a Mormon on a national ticket. Romney has been manufactured to run for the vice presidency and lose.

Message To Elizabeth Caputo

I want you to quit your current job and come join my corporate team early in 2009. You can become COO. First year or two might feel like a paycut, but the equity will bountifully make up for it over the years. The pay goes up too.

As Presidential as both Hillary and Obama appeared tonight on the debate. I can't imagine (in fact I'd be thoroughly disappointed) if Obama choice Hillary as a running mate. They views are clearly diametrically opposed no matter what the pundits say. The pundits may sway some americans (perhaps those who are being played up as Hillary's base - the more likely niave), but most of us even those who are being characterized as blind followers of Savior Hillary can see through the smoke and mirrors. Barack is against Governement as it is and Hillary is clearly trying to game us all into believing somehow she will morph into this change agent. She failed to deliver on Health Care and she do it again and provide a list of excuses. Transparency isn't something isn't something she will promote because transparency is incongruent with her agenda. That is to keep the people in the dark, confused about the issues because they're so complicated, and blind trust she's the savior.

I want Obama for President with another Vice President like Edwards for example. I believe he's geniunely for the people as is Obama. I hope Obama wins by a landslide this Tuesday so that this drama from the Billary campaign will end..

Finally I believe and support the 22nd Amendment!

John McCain/Hillary Clinton - Presidiential Ticket!

Hillary appears to be applying for John McCain's VP.
Where in the world is the DNC leadership and the superdelegates. She needs to be put in check. She and Bill think they own the Democratic party.

She is taking a pager from Bush in his 2000 primary against McCain.
I will not vote for her every! I will write in OBAMA if she stole the Democratic Nomination.

No OBAMA/CLINTON or CLINTON/OBAMA

Here's Clinton talking to reporters on Thursday:

“I think that since we now know Sen. (John) McCain will be the nominee for the Republican Party, national security will be front and center in this election. We all know that. And I think it’s imperative that each of us be able to demonstrate we can cross the commander-in-chief threshold,” the New York senator told reporters....

“I believe that I’ve done that. Certainly, Sen. McCain has done that and you’ll have to ask Sen. Obama with respect to his candidacy,” she said.

Calling McCain, the presumptive GOP nominee a good friend and a “distinguished man with a great history of service to our country,” Clinton said, “Both of us will be on that stage having crossed that threshold. That is a critical criterion for the next Democratic nominee to deal with.” [...]

“There are certain critical issues that voters always look to in a general election. National security experience (and) the qualifications to be commander-in-chief are front and center. They always have been. They always will be,” she said.

She said she and McCain had traveled to Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan together as she repeated a line that surfaced from the campaign trail. She and McCain “bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign, Clinton said, while “Sen. Obama will bring a speech he gave in 2002,” stating his opposition to the Iraq war as an Illinois state senator.
For Heavens sake the Lady even put down a fellow democrat when she commented that she and McCain were ready not Barack ( Sounds like a McCain/Clinton Presidential Ticket). IF a person will turn on their own... what do you think they will do to people who are not. Thus my case for why she is not the Leader our nation needs. Republicans want her to win... Because they know she can not be trusted to stand by her party or country ... just herself and her ambitions.
