Drooling In Vain
It is almost official. It has come as no surprise to anyone that Senator (and former first lady) Hillary Clinton (D-NY) announced today that she will form an exploratory committee in her bid to win the Presidency in 2008. Her announcement said in part:
I'm in. And I'm in to win.
Today I am announcing that I will form an exploratory committee to run for president.
And I want you to join me not just for the campaign but for a conversation about the future of our country -- about the bold but practical changes we need to overcome six years of Bush administration failures.
I am going to take this conversation directly to the people of America, and I'm starting by inviting all of you to join me in a series of web chats over the next few days.
The stakes will be high when America chooses a new president in 2008.
With the formation of this committee, Senator Clinton will now be able to officially raise funds in her bid to retake the White House living quarters.
Of course the mainstream media (MSM) has been breathlessly speculating about this for years and now that Barack Hussein Obama has also formed an exploratory committee, they have begun drooling about a Hillary/Obama ticket.
Unfortunately, the MSM might as well put away their drool buckets. When (not if) Hillary wins the Democratic nomination, she will not name the freshman senator from Illinois as her running mate.
Although the MSM would love a white woman and a black man on the Democratic ticket, it just won't happen with these two in 2008. Obama's lack of any real experience in big time politics will not affect Hillary's decision. The fact that he is one of the laziest senators in Washington and has managed to accomplish virtually nothing in the short time he has been in the Senate will not affect Hillary's decision.
Hillary's decision will be based solely on the fact that Obama is a black man from Illinois and, as such, brings nothing to the table.
Hillary, 'the smartest woman in America,' knows that she can already rely on receiving 90% of the black vote in America. Even if that could be improved upon, the fact is that there are some Democrats, especially in the South, who would not be caught dead voting for a black man thus offsetting any potential gains in the black community.
Hillary also knows that the corrupt Democratic machine in Chicago will assure her of the Illinois electoral college votes. Why does she need Obama?
The only reason she could possibly have to name Obama would be to satisfy the MSM, but the MSM can stop drooling, because Hillary will raise so much money she won't need any free publicity from the liberal press.
Obama will have to win the Democratic nomination on his own in the future if he expects to ever occupy the White House and that will not happen in 2008. Hillary won't let it happen.
