Not According to Pelosi
I love this Democratic race to the White House. I really do. From them getting down and dirty with each other. The Race card being played by BOTH. To BOTH being caught lying, both being condescending, and both talking about Socialism.
Both of these twos base have said that if the other Candidate wins the nomination, or better yet, GIVEN the nomination, by the superdelegates, they will vote for McCain. Basically guaranteeing a Republican win for President.
So how do they counter this? Well, logic would dictate that they bring these two together. Only problem is, NEITHER of them will settle for second. Neither Obama nor Clinton will accept being VP. But that hasn’t stopped all the talk about a Obama / Clinton or Clinton / Obama ticket. We even had Clinton offering it to Obama when he was, and still is by the way, in the lead, the VP spot.
By not ALL are so thrilled about this. Take Traitor in The House Pelosi. She HATES this idea. We all know she is for Obama because she doesn’t want Hillary at all, but she is flat out against these two joining together.
In an interview with CNN talk show host Larry King aired Thursday night. She made the following statements.
“No, I don't think it's a good idea,”
“I think first of all the candidate, whoever he or she may be, should choose his or her own vice presidential candidate,” said Pelosi, who will chair the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August. “I think that's appropriate. That's where you would see the comfort level on not only how to run, but how to govern the country.”
Can you REALLY imagine these two working together? She also does not want this to be decided at the convention.
“I don't want a brokered convention. I think there's too short a time — maybe just about eight weeks between the end of the convention and the election. And I don't think that's enough time to bring everyone together,” Pelosi said.
“I do think that the campaigns have to work their way through this, that we should have all the elections, let the people speak and then we'll find out who our nominee is.”
Right now, that would be Obama. Clinton CANNOT catch him. It just is not possible. Pelosi does not want another women in a position of power over her. She just doesn’t folks. She also cannot STAND Hillary. So of course, this makes sense. This really is fun to watch.
Be right back.
