Obama/Clinton? Oh Jeez

The debate is as to whether an Obama/Clinton ticket would be a good one. There are certainly points to be made on both sides. Prior to January of 2009, this ticket would likely be a winner.

Senator Clinton has been very strong with certain voting blocks, women and low income whites being examples. In my opinion,however, Senator Clinton pushed any values that she may have had to the side while endlessly maintaining a position in the Democratic primary well beyond when it had become clear she’d lost any chance to win. Can we forgive her for that? I can. But I’d never consider voting for her.

Senator Obama, on the other hand has been very strong with his overall message of unity in government. Mrs, Clinton portrays this message as a grossly unachievable ‘Love Your Fellow Partisan’ type vision that will not and can not survive in Washington.

It follows that the main reasons Senator Clinton would be added to the ticket would be to unify the Democratic Party and to pickup votes. Ok, certainly I’d want to pickup votes, as many as possible. I’d also like to unite the Democrats. But, what happens when these people actually take office? Many would say that the two are really on the same page.

Yes, when it comes to the issues.
No, when it comes to a vision for a working American Government.

My hope is that Obama will pick Senator Jim Webb, as a running mate. Mr. Webb has a great deal of experience with the military having served as Secretary of the Navy and various Senate Committees including Foreign Relations, Armed Services, Veterans’ Affairs, and the Joint Economic Committee. Aside from all of that, he comes across as being charismatic and quite articulate.

Can you picture the soap opera in the White House with Barrack and Michele Obama, along with Bill and Hillary Clinton? Not pretty…

While I was getting a bite to eat, I saw breaking story on MSNBC stating that both campaigns deny any talks of an Obama/Clinton ticket.
