Dems Want Obama-Clinton Ticket

A new poll shows that a “majority of Democrats think Barack Obama should select Hillary Clinton as his running mate.” 

Fifty-four percent of registered Democrats questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll released Friday think Obama should name his rival as his running mate; 43 percent disagreed.

The poll is the first national survey conducted since Obama claimed the Democratic presidential nomination Tuesday night, at the end of the primary season. Clinton is expected to announce Saturday that she’s suspending her campaign and backing her Senate colleague.

Men and women don’t see eye-to-eye on the question. Sixty percent of Democratic women said Clinton should be Obama’s running mate, but only 46 percent of male Democrats agreed, while 51 percent of them said no.

” ‘What do women want?’ Sigmund Freud famously asked,” said Bill Schneider, CNN senior political analyst. “The answer appears to be Clinton on the ticket. It’s pretty clear that many Democratic women are miffed and that Obama has to be very careful how he deals with Sen. Clinton.”

    I’m one democratic voter opposed to the idea of Hillary becoming a VP for Obama. The way I see it is like asking her to be co-captain of the Titanic that is destined for political doom and infamy. Who would want to go on board with Obama as a runningmate, when he already has so many personalities he is running with (or running away from?), namely, Rev. Wright, William Ayers, Fr. Pfleger, and Tony Rezko. I’m afraid that with such a heavy baggage, this Affirmative Action Party (aka Democratic Party) candidate would mostly like collapse before the finishing line.

  2. Who wouldn’t an Obama/Clinton ticket carry over a McCain/? ticket? If there is a stronger possible ticket available on either side I don’t see it.

    Thanks for sharing. HRC as VP might dispell some of the doom and gloom.

    I would think it would.

    (By the way, I don’t know why, but your comments keep ending up in the SPAM bin — and I keep marking them as not SPAM – Sorry about that.)

  5. And now my e-mail to you about this didn’t go through. Any advice?
