It Is In Obama's Best Interest To Put Hillary On The Ticket.

Some people have not been registered in years to vote but then Obama and Hillary came along and a lot of people got in the game and registered to vote for one or the other.For the people that registered to vote for Hillary,many are not willing to convert to Obama unless Hillary is on the ticket.Hillary supporters didn't vote for Obama so I don't see how they can vote for him now.I think if Obama wants to win the election,the wisest thing to do is put her on the ticket and I don't know why thats such a hard decision for him,it seems so logical to me.

its very clear that obama cant win this election without hillary, people can be so hipacritical. they chewed her up and spit her out when she was in the running, and now the only way he can win is with her aboard, if your not ready for a female president guess what your not ready for obama as ppresidant either, thats my opinion and i stick buy, i am still debating if i want to vote,im just so digusted with this whole thing..

Thanks for your comments.I feel the same as you.I am so ticked,I am so mad at how Hillary was treated as she was running.I am also discusted that now she has to bow down and say what the other camp wants to hear.If she is not on the ticket then my plan right now is not to vote since I only registered for the sole purpose of voting for Hillary. but I may do what the majority of her 18 million are going to do.I will be staying in tune and in touch as well as possible to see what we the majority are going to do about it if she is not put on the ticket.

It's not really as simple as that. Hill and Bill both have alot of baggage. She also might end up getting more attention that Barack. I think she would be hard to control. She might be the best choice,but I think that Obama is doing the right thing by giving serious consideration to other candidates. I don't think he will pick her unless he feels he has to.

I really think that Obama was intimidated by Hillary because she is a stong,smart lady and had a lot of plans on the issues where Obama was just mostly all words of change and hope, more of an empty suit,while Hillary was not an empty pantsuit.She was of substance and he was not.So I believe he wouldn't really have Hillary on the ticket because she would show him up that she is more experienced and stronger politically and that her ideas on the issues would turn out to be great ideas.

Well,I think that he cannot win without Hillary's support,Obama carries alot of baggage himself and he should consider her for a post in his cabinet.To ignore her and her supporters won't help his bid for the presidency.

Yes, it is to his advantage to put Clinton on the ticket, though this will probably not happen. You can watch any news channel and they report that the votes in the primaries were CLEARLY divided demographically. For example, Clinton received the majority of votes from older whites while Obama received more votes from younger whites. These patterns remained constant in the primaries. Also, 18 million votes is a large chunk (Clinton supporters), especially when many of those voters have vowed that they will not vote for Obama in November. Without Clinton on the ticket, it is not impossible for Obama to win the election, but his job will be MUCH harder. Plus, as a Clinton supporter, I think Obama will get a wake-up call if he takes office and realize he is too inexperienced and isn't able to do all the things he had hoped to do. He will need someone like Clinton or else, it's another four years of the same empty promises we have been getting from politicians.

I have to respectfully disagree. Putting a Clinton on the ticket would bring a whole new dimension to the campaign that Obama doesn't need. Obama won the Democratic Primary by staying on message, and not attacking. The Clinton's are notorious for attacking and mudslinging. Furthermore, bring on the Clinton's also brings back the Establishment. Obama is one of the rare political types that has managed to distance himself from Washington. His "Change we can Believe In" mantra doesn't happen to mention that he has been a part of a Democratically controlled Congress for the past couple of years. He has been able to distance himself. Summing up, bring the Clinton's on board brings along too much baggage.

but there is a problem of hillary over shadowing obama... probably roles have to be defined... i dont think obama is interested in that!!! he can win without her!!

i think both obama and clinton have their own following. to combine the two will maximize the potential number of votes for the democratic party. there may be some clinton's supporters who will not vote for obama for some reasons, a majority of her supporters will favor her choice and decision. as they say, election is about addition.

No, as much as I like Hillary I don't think its a good idea for Obama to have her as a vicepresident, however he should apoint her somewhere on his cabinet or something, Hillary and Bill are two good people to have on your team when you are trying to win an election
