Hillary's Bobby Kennedy Comment: Bitter Heart, Bad Taste

Why Is There Secret Service Protection For White Male Presidents?

The Clintons should not think that they are going to force Barack to put Hillary on the ticket. I think Barack should put a woman on the ticket, but that woman need not be Hillary. Kathleen Sebelius would do just fine. (Running Mate) She might actually do better. She will bring a freshness to the scene that Hillary can't. There is a Clinton fatigue going on across the country.

Barack's first term is not going to be Bill Clinton's third term. Bill Clinton is an amazing political talent, but Barack is more amazing. (Bill Clinton In Top 10, Barack Obama In Top 5)

Hillary did the best she could. If this bitterness is about not having been able to advance the cause of gender, she needs to realize that preparing to be running mate would be the best thing to do on gender. Instead Hillary sounds like those West Virginia and Kentucky whites who votes against Barack in droves. Oh no a black guy is about to go to the White House.

And I am not worried that the groups that went for Hillary will not go for Barack. Iowa is not exactly Harlem, and we know how Iowa went. A Barack-Kathleen ticket will get all the voters that a Barack-Hillary ticket will. The party will unite just fine.

Besides Kathleen Sebelius has her own bonafides. She is more like Barack in that she has a track record of bringing Democrats and Republicans together.

One Senator and one Governor might also be a better mix than two Senators.

Hillary's Bobby Kennedy comment is like when Trent Lott made his lightning strike comment on Hillary herself. It is unfortunate.

No To Abortion

Roe V Wade will not overturned. So abortion will continue to be legal. But if you are staunchly against the very idea of abortion, what you do is you explore every possible way to make sure there are as few abortions as possible. You get into social programs, and sex education, and calls to abstinence.

Intelligent Design

If you are going to tell me you are for intelligent design, I am going to say I respect your religious beliefs. Christians say the Lord created this universe in six days, Muslims say seven. I respect both worldviews. I respect both religions.

The Dalai Lama has said every time new scientific views clash with his religious beliefs, he discards those religious beliefs. That is my religion Buddhism, but that does not have to be yours. I respect your religion, whichever it is.

No To Gun Control

Hunting should be cultivated as a sport. But then you don't need machine guns to go deer hunting. And urban areas are different from rural areas when it comes to guns. Noone is trying to ban hunting, but we all want lower crime rates.

Gay Marriage

Is the sex less good if it is called civil union as opposed to marriage? No discrimination based on sexual orientation is already the law of the land. The law has to be implemented.

WRAPUP 2-Obama empathizes with Clinton over Kennedy comment Reuters Clinton's remarks drew headlines and became a hot topic of debate on talk shows ..... There have long been concerns about the safety of Obama, who would be the first black U.S. president. The Illinois senator was given Secret Service protection 18 months before the November election -- earlier than any other candidate has received increased security. ...... Clinton's comment brought up the taboo topic of the possibility of a rival's assassination, and political analysts said the remark was a serious gaffe. .... "This is serious. It's more serious because there were already questions about why Hillary Clinton was still in the race and what she was hoping for," said Calvin Jillson ..... "What she articulated was the most catastrophic possibility," he said. Jillson said the reference to Kennedy's assassination made the chance of Clinton being asked to be Obama's vice presidential running mate even more unlikely.

Mrs Clinton blamed the media rather than the Obama campaign, saying: "It's been deeply offensive to millions of women." .......

Barack Obama wants Bill to heal Hillary Times Online, UK She quickly apologised, ashen-faced, for a comment which appeared dangerously close to wishful thinking about Obama, but the damage was done. ........ After the Kennedy gaffe, however, the implausible has become the unthinkable. ....... “It would be hard to take the country in a new direction with the Clintons in the White House,” a source in the Obama campaign said. “They bring controversy.” ....... They both came from lower-income families with a strong mother and went on to become very well educated and devoted their lives to public service. ..... Bill Clinton predicted last week that Chelsea, his 28-year-old daughter, could one day enter politics.
Barack Obama is master of the new Facebook politics Times Online, UK a generation that is now used to relating, thinking, talking and meeting online. ....... she missed the key element of the new politics: social networking. She was still AOL; Obama was Facebook. ....... “What’s amazing is that Hillary built the best campaign that has ever been done in Democratic politics on the old model – she raised more money than anyone before her, she locked down all the party stalwarts, she assembled an all-star team of consultants and she really mastered this top-down, command-and-control type of outfit. And yet she’s getting beaten by this political start-up that is essentially a totally different model of the new politics.” ......... It transformed its website into a social networking zone ....... One of the men Obama hired to set up this new effort certainly knew what he was doing: Chris Hughes is a co-founder of Facebook. ...... Obama’s campaign has in fact been the least elitist and most democratic fundraising operation in the history of American politics. ...... he has a huge list of names to ask for more. This is a money machine unlike any other. ......... open-source, web-based operation: the personal drain on a candidate is lessened ......... Everyone who wanted to get into the 75,000-strong rally in Portland, Oregon, last weekend had to provide an e-mail address. ....... By the time they came home from the event, an e-mail was waiting for them, asking them for money or for referrals to other friends, and encouraging them to form “affinity groups” to spread the network wider and wider. ......... No one had asked them. They were arranging the parties or performances or gatherings through Facebook and MySpace, without any formal leadership from Obama headquarters. ........... the online president of social-networking democracy is imminent.

Watching her, he felt a surge of love and wonder: that she was his wife, that their baby, due in just three weeks, would soon be born.
