If they do that they will alienate a huge base of their Dems as it should be.

Is Obama so much of an idiot that he cannot properly pick his VP?

Or is Obama willing to do ANYTHING to get what he wants and if that is the case do we want another president like this in office?
Dang ... replace "Obama" with "McCain" and you can really see what a clusterF&^% this country is really in for.

The only way Hillary would get on that ticket is IF Obama conceded to a 3-way Presidency, where Hillary and Bill would have a permanent seat on the table.

Hah! Obama is the politician among politicians. This guy is the by-product of the Chicago mafia-style politics. Obama would and does say/do anything to win. That would include adding Hillary to the ticket.

Which is why Biden has already been saying saying that Hillary would be a better VP than me. Biden and Obama's team can come up with some "sob story" and drop him as VP.

This would show how weak Obama is and how strong McCain is right now.

Picking Hillary would shift Hillary voters who are siding with McCain back on their ticket, BUT it would make at least 1/2 of the Obama Communist Hardcore supporters to STAY HOME on Nov 4. Either was it's a loser for the Dems. Obama blew it from day 1 by picking Biden. It's over, forget about Obama. McCain-Palin are a shoe-in right now.

Eh - I imagine he was being generous. Honestly, I don't know. I read the text, but maybe he said it in a different tone than we're interpreting. I am not spinning. I just don't know. Biden makes some kooky statements; but, I imagine in that case he was just being gracious.

I didn't like the Biden choice at all at first. But, I realize that it is a smart choice mainly because of his foreign policy experience. I mean this with all sincerity, the Palin pick made me realize how smart the Biden choice was, and that the VP choice shouldn't just be about trying to put someone on the ticket for political expediency.

I strongly supported Hillary in the primaries. I'm an Independent voter now supporting McCain. And, no, I'm not a member of any Hillary forums.

These sites have been around for months. These are disenchanted DEMOCRATS that are mad at the corrupt process that is the democrat primary. Wishful thinking they are (R)'s.

WHO would be investigating? And for what reason?
