Surrender Hillary

MONDAY 5-26-08…The pressure continues to mount for Hillary to “surrender” in the face of what some consider to be the Obama juggernaut. Hillary continues to say…in so many words…..”No Way, Jose! I’m in it all the way to the convention.” Several party officials believe she’s likely to insist that her name be placed in nomination on the first ballot. That would be a worst case scenario for the Democrat party.

If neither candidate wins on the first ballot (which is unlikely given the closeness of the vote tallies, pledged delegate are then free to vote for whomever they want on the second and succeeding ballots. That would open up the divisions in the party for the whole world to see. It’s a situation the party leaders hope will not happen.

How can the party prevent it from happening? What could be offered to Hillary to get her to concede –before the convention in August? What would be her terms for surrender? According to Times/CNN, Bill Clinton feels she has earned nothing short of an offer to be Obama’s running mate.

That will never happen, since Michelle Obama hates Hillary with a passion.

Even former President Jimmy Carter says it’s unlikely Obama will offer the number two spot to her, but that if he did, she would accept it. I still maintain the VP slot will not be offered because it would mean Bill and Hillary together again as part of the Obama administration.

So, what would Hillary accept? There’s talk now of an offer of 20 million dollars to pay off her campaign debt (to herself) and a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s not idle talk either. It has been run up the flagpole.

If that should happen, consider this. Knowing that Bill and Hillary stole a lot of stuff from the White House when they left, and knowing that Hillary outright lied about coming under sniper fire in Kosovo….it would be the first time a known thief and liar was seated on the U.S. Supreme Court.

  1. Bruce, you’ll get a kick out of this site:

  2. One of the interesting aspects of the Clinton campaign process from the beginning to this point in time is that it can be best understood, when we compare it to peeling a not so fresh onion one layer at a time. The closer you get to the center the more you begin to realize the essential rottenness lurking at the core. The longer Hillary carries on this “Captain of the World” quest for the Democratic Party nomination, the more she reveals to the thinking electorate how essentially devoid she is of the qualities of leadership we voters hope to see in those individuals who seek the office of President of the United States. Finally when all is revealed, it turns out that there is rottenness at the core. This self-destruction of a once perceived icon has been painful to watch.
