If the Clintons steal the nomination, word on the street is Blooberg (NY Mayor) will contribute up to 1 billion dollar to Obama's campaign and become his running mate on the independent ticket. If this happens, it would perhaps be the end of the Democratic Party and the beginning of the establishment of the Independent party.

My guess is that Clinton will be forced out if she doesn't win TX and OH by big margins.

I doubt it, but if that were to happen I know who I'd be voting for and it wouldn't be Hillary.

Would Obama have to resign his Senate seat to run third party? The Republicans have that rule. Anyone know?

First off, this was written by Armstrong Williams so it has to be taken with a grain of salt. Secondly, I don't see how Obama running as an independent would cost the Democrats seats in Congress.

Key word here is 'stealing' the nomination. Why would a democratic congressman run under the democratic party if the voters, lets assume, choose to not associate themselves with the democratic party primarily due to the fact the presidential nomination was stolen by one candidate.

2. It's a very likely scenario considering the fact that Barack is plus 700,000 on the popular vote plus independents in particular make up 30% of the general election vote, not to mention Bloomberg is a very popular individual.

As someone said, the author of this piece is Armstrong Williams. So consider the source.

That said, if there's some truth to this, it would be good for the country and good for politics. Obama might not win, but then neither would the Clinton corruption machine.

I don't think Bloomberg is left-wing enough, to run with Obama.

Is that the same Armstrong Williams who bushco PAID to push their agenda as real news?

Was that corrupt?
