The scoop from Washington

Barbara Walters asks Michelle Obama if Hillary Clinton should be Barack's running mate.

| 6 Comments

Our lady of hard news, Barbara Walters, asks Michelle Obama a news question: if Sen. Hillary Clinton should be Barack's running mate. The audience applauds.

Said Obama, "One thing a nominee earns is the right to pick the vice president that they think will best reflect their vision of the country and I am just glad I will have nothing to do with it."

Michelle's taking cues from LAURA BUSH--NOT HILLARY?
Whaaaatttt?
And why should OBAMA pick his own veep when they ask all of us to work and donate money?
Without Hillary Obama = McGovern all over again.


Not good kids. Not good.
Here's the quote that galls me---You know, just calm, rational approach to these issues. And you know, I'm taking some cues. I mean, there's a balance. There's a reason why people like her. It's because she doesn't, sort of, you know, fuel the fire."
Michelle Obama's and her husband's rank disrespect for Hillary and the (yes middle aged white women) who supported Hillary and kept the party fires going while the Obamas climbed into upper middle class status is going to hurt us.
she had an opportunity to praise and praise and praise hillary--and she chose not to take it.

I'm a lifelong Democrat who will DEFINITELY vote Republican for the first time this year. Obama and his wife have trouble hiding their disdain for Clinton, just as they have trouble hiding their disdain for Whites in general, and this country for that matter.

WAS THAT BARBARA WA WA GRASPING AT STRAWS!

HOW MUCH PRAISE DO YOU WANT FOR HILLARY?
LET IT GO, GO TO CHURCH, PRAY AND THEN VOTE FOR OBAMA, HE IS THE
ONLY ONE WHO CAN GET US OUT OF THIS QUICKSAND!
MCCAIN DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE!

If the situation were reversed, do you think Bill Clinton would praise, praise and praise Obama? I'll let you answer that one for yourself.

Barak comes to Clinton's defense everytime something bad is said and gets no credit for it. How about some damn truth for a change because this nit-picking is getting old and very transparent! In fact, all these right-wing atacks are starting to remind me of the Evil Emporer Palpatine from StarWars who playing a "Puppet Master" so they can blind us from the real issues and divide us so Bush can get his third term.
