The answer was the Clinton/Obama ticket. Hillary Clinton had half the votes, Obama the other half. Both were historic candidacies that refused to be denied. Hillary Clinton was clearly the more senior, the more qualified, the more experienced candidate while Obama had qualities of likeability, freshness and the ever present message of hope and change. Obama could have been President after cutting his teeth as VP. The Obama/Clinton ticket while capitalizing on all those points above to achieve a win...just made no sense when the top of the ticket of Celebrity would be balanced by Hillary Clinton on the bottom of the ticket: what a President should be. This is why Biden is not the right choice. Of course Biden was the best VP choice on paper if you are Obama and refuse to select Hillary Clinton. The point is...Biden isn't going to be President. All of Biden's valuable assets: tested by the tragic death of his wife and child, catholic middle class values, strong on experience, National Security qualifications...those are things about Joe Biden. Not Barack Obama. And just like when Obama mentioned his family members who served in the military, that has very little to do with Barack Obamas own experience or service in anything. Barack Obama wants to be President. Over and over Obama requires KingMakers to make him something that he is not...to fill in where he is lacking. President Clinton and Sen. Hillary Clinton have to qualify Barack Obama and campaign for him unceasingly because he is the weakest candidate for President in history. Nobody in his or her right mind believed Bill Clinton last night. Obama supporters either...they won't say it because they are completely sold but deep down they didnt believe a word either. Even in the Obama Surrogate MainStream Media the articles on the speech are pathetic and few in number! LOL. Nobody even remotely believed that swill. What is interesting is that the bullies who wanted Hillary to lose, Obama to win and the Clinton's to secure Obamas win while dropping dead on their way out, actually in their Obama insanity say the speech was Bill Clintons redemption. LOL I'll tell you what President Bill Clinton did. Bill Clinton is a master. It was brilliant. Bill Clinton gave the "But Brutus is an Honorable Man" speech but Pres. Clinton utilized the irony technique in a new way that will go down in history. Everything Pres. Clinton said was exactly opposite of what he meant...but he added a twist to it. By showing he is the Senior Statesman, by saying "I've been where you want to go Barack, I've actually done what you say you want to do --- I am the man...you want to be." It was in Every Line that President Bill Clinton forcefully spoke that said: Barack Obama is ready...Barack Obama will work...Barack Obama will not allow...Barack Obama knows... Each one of those statements harken to the scene from the play A Raisin in the Sun when Lena the Matriarch of the family, the one with wisdom, honor and strength states to the audience that Walter is about to do something that neither she nor the audience has the slightest belief Walter is capable of doing. Walter is her misguided son who has done nothing to deserve the trust she is vouching for but her full-throated defense of family comes from a strong and prideful tradition of what others have achieved and sacrificed. Oh Yes, Bill Clinton took it there. It was the Big Chief talking directly to a young wanna-be who takes the short cuts and earns no respect and who has yet to even make it to Warrior. Pres. Clintons speech even had a tinge of ridiculousness because the very statements were so contradictory to everything the Clintons have said before. But that is not the Clintons fault. It is actually what the Obama Party and much of the Surrogate for Obama Mainstream Media stupidly demanded President Clinton and Sen. Clinton do....sadly it will be Obama's undoing. Why you ask? After Bill Clintons Barack is an honorable man speech finally solidifying that Obama lacks everything necessary to be President His main competitor gave a speech that demonstrated she should have won, his VP selection is a more qualified candidate and was selected for just that purpose, and the former President in your party gives you a dressing down and you dont even recognize it. Its Two Reasons really. Obama's first mistake was hypocritically not winning fair and square. Yes, Obama pimped the caucus system and came out ahead however; he did not beat Hillary Clinton that way. Obama had a slight lead but he did not WIN. Obama needed superdelegates to win and in order to secure victory, the Democratic leadership used undemocratic actions in the way of a farce of a RBC meeting in the DNC where election results were fabricated and states were not allowed to receive full votes. The way in which this was handled actually held momentum as well pushing the delegate count one way or the other. Obama removing his own name from the Michigan Ballot and then receiving votes he did earn in his name (Uncommitted by DNC rules cannot be given to another candidate), and then delegates Obama did not earn (fabricated election results for Michigan), ruined the credibility of the Democratic Party, destroyed the validity of the Primary and gave Obama the weakest kind of victory. This type of victory has no honor. Obama hypocritically allowed full votes to the delegations of Michigan and Florida when Obamas primary victory was no longer in jeopardy but when he needs the future votes of those states. Secondly, Obama didn't demand a full roll call for the Nomination...He ran from a fight like a punk and refused to demonstrate his validity as the undisputed Democratic Nominee. If he cannot win his party's nomination fair and square when there was the tightest primary race in history, then he does not deserve the Office of President. The Democrats present fake unity behind a propped up picture of weakness. The Democratic Convention Celebration as they nominated Obama in Acclamation reminded me of the Party they had when the Democrats announced Mondale to replace Senator Wellstone who died in a plane crash. The balance of power in the senate was pivotal. The Democrats needed a win and so sure they found their man in Mondale It was a huge Celebration Party Party Party. Until, Mondale lost.
