“With all due respect, I’ve won twice as many states as Senator Clinton. I’ve won more of the popular vote than Senator Clinton. I have more delegates than Senator Clinton.” Barack Obama
Republicans would never be so spineless as to suggest someone winning a campaign combine forces like the dual-ticket debate that's going on now. Obama is winning. There are winners and there are losers. Clinton is losing. She is currently the loser. Didn't these guys play little league as kids? Geez.
As for a "dream ticket," that's a joke. Hillary Clinton is divisive and disliked. Independents would be more likely to vote for McCain than a Hillary-Obama ticket. Obama, however, is a more attractive opponent against McCain.
And Republicans who are supporting Clinton in the primaries are playing with fire.ReplyDelete
The logic is "Since we hate Clinton, America will never elect her, no matter how lousy our own candidate is", rather than "McCain isn't that strong a candidate, maybe we'd better get rid of the worst possibility (Clinton) before the general election".
Meddling in your opponent's primaries is gaming the system, and many Republicans are choosing to play a very dangerous game.
