Clinton to suspend her campaign
« on: Jun 05, 08, 09:02:48 am CDT »

Quote
WASHINGTON - Hillary Rodham Clinton will end on Saturday her historic bid to become the first woman president but Barack Obama said he won't be hurried into a decision on whether to make her his running mate.

Clinton, in an e-mail to supporters, said she "will be speaking on Saturday about how together we can rally the party behind Senator Obama. The stakes are too high and the task before us too important to do otherwise."

Aides told NBC News that there would be a private staff event Friday in Washington, followed by the public event on Saturday. They said that she would not waive her right to have her name placed in nomination and that she had not negotiated for anything from Obama, such as debt relief for her campaign.

Man o man she just doesn't know how to bow out gracefully

You're surprised?  When has she ever been graceful?  Oh wait - I remember... back in 1991, while Billy boy was still trying to become Prez.

I'm not accepting anything until I hear the words come directly from her mouth live on tv. Part of me is still expecting her people to come out today and say it's not true.

Once it does happen (and after I stand and cheer for 10 minutes) then the question becomes...will Obama stand up to her and deny the pressure to put her on his ticket as VP?

He needs to take his time and make his own decision and not be bullied into taking Hillary just to satisfy her frenzied supporters who claim she's somehow entitled to VP like she was entitled to the White House.

Nows the time for Barack to be presidential.

As I said over on the other board - it would be a huge mistake for Obama to cave and ask Hills to be his VP.  If it was any other woman who ran against Obama, I may say "Boy, that would be one hell of a ticket."  But Hill/Bill would have too many of their own agendas they would be working on to support Obama's plans

And other than her supporters calling for her to be the VP candidate, I don't think Hills herself has ever mentioned it as a possiblity.  So, either she want the VP nod and she figures enough other people are talking - so she does not have to or she does not want to be second fiddle.

Hil said on Tuesday she was "open to the idea" of being VP which many think was a way of saying "You better at least offer it or you can kiss my 18 million votes goodbye."

Another thing to watch for on Saturday is the actual words she uses. Will she formally end her campaign or merely suspend it? If she says she's suspending it that's the same as saying "I'm still counting on this rookie fucking up so I can jump back in."

Should be interesting.

Well it looks like she's leaning on suspending her campaign hoping that someone would RFK the rookie

Some of her supports are fanatic enough to do something like that.

Kind of scary actually.

She's always looked like Martha Stewart would if she were possessed by Satan.

I've never liked or had any respect for Old Hil.  She's always come off as a scheming, two faced bully who would shake your hand smiling just after having given the order to execute you.

I'm all for a woman for President, just not THAT woman.

She reminds me of the crazyass Glenn Close character in "Fatal Attraction".  All sweet while she's getting what she wants, but buster - you'd better not leave her.

No She's possessed by Mephistopheles

This one?
Mephistopheles (also Mephisto, Mephistophilus, Mephist, Mephistophilis, Mephostophiles, Mephostophiel, Mephisophilus, and Mephistovic) is a name given to one of the chief demons of Christianity appearing in European literary traditions. ...

Or This?  :D
In many campaign settings for the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, Mephistopheles is an Arch-Devil of Hell (Baator in later editions of the game), also known as the "Lord of No Mercy" and the "Cold Lord."

I think Bill is still in the doghouse.

The last few posts aren't looking at the good in Hillary as President.
If she were president, there would always be peace on earth for a week every month!

I can see a moment in the privacy of their home. A red faced Hillary with a crazed look in her eye...

"Well, motherfucker. After embarrassing me in front of the world with that whore intern, you promised 'Stay with me baby and I'll make you President.' Well what the fuck do you have to say now?!?!?!?"

I don't think I'd like an Obama/Clinton ticket. I'm not sure who I want Obama to run with, but not Clinton. At the same time, I'm not holding my breath for Clinton to do the best thing for the party and encourage her followers to now support Obama.
