(CNN) - Many Democrats have called the prospect of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama teaming up for the general election a "dream ticket."
But conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday a presidential ticket that included a "woman and a black" doesn't "have a prayer."
"Let's say it is Obama and Hillary...Let's put Hillary at the top - That's a position she's familiar with," Limbaugh said on his radio show Thursday. "Therefore, you've got a woman and a black for the first time ever on the Democrat ticket. Ahem. They don't have a prayer."
Donna Brazile, Al Gores former presidential campaign manager, called the comments "un-American."
"I'm an American. And I'm proud to be an American," Brazile said on CNN's The Situation Room Wednesday. "But I think that comment is, as far as I can tell, a very un-American conversation, because African-Americans and women fight for this country. We have died for this country."
“To suggest, somehow or another, that we are not capable of serving this country in the capacity of Commander-in-Chief is just, in my mind, mind-boggling," she continued. "So, with all due respect to Mr. Limbaugh, just wait. Let the people decide. And I guarantee you, the people will make a better decision than Rush Limbaugh."
Limbaugh's comments came hours after Hillary Clinton said the Democratic presidential race could result in a joint ticket.
“That may be where this is headed,” she told CBS Wednesday morning. “But of course we have to decide who is on the top of ticket. I think the people of Ohio very clearly said that it should be me."
Obama later called any speculation of teaming up with Clinton "premature."

Why are we paying any attention at all to Rush?
I doubt Obama will pick HRC.
Not after the smears, racism and fearmongering.
She had her chance, but blew it.
I think he should pick somebody else.
Why is this guy still on the air? Who the h**l still listens to him?
Limbaugh managed to be racist and sexist in one simple comment. Gotta love those republicans, they are so creative it hurts....
Every day there is a new ticker item about Rush Limbaugh. Why is CNN reporting this as news? Is it to draw away viewers from FoxNews? Limbaugh has not been news worthy since..........ever!
The real point is not whether they have a prayer but that Mr. Limbaugh needs our prayers.
it doesn't have a prayer of ever happening. Obama will get the nomination, and Clinto will NEVER be second fiddle, nor will Obama want someone stealing is limelight and upstaging him.
This is the dumbest post I have ever seen. Who cares what the blowhard says?
Is Rush back on the painkillers?
I laughed out loud at this. Is Rush still alive? Guess what Rush? No one cares what you think. I am surprised CNN actually would even comment on what you say.
Why is this idiot on the Ticker again...he is about as relevant as Bob Dole...oh, right that was on CNN as well...really on the pulse guys...good work...
Boy. Why is it just me or does it sound like the old boy is actually terrifed of that happening? Seems to me that he realizes that McCain wouldnt have a chance then.
The people who listen to Rush Limbaugh are those who are too lazy to think for themselves. They confuse loud blustering with substance. It's just easier that way.
I've said it before, with approximately 41% of the US reported to be Democrats, 39% reported to be Republicans and about 20% Independents (who USUALLY vote Republican), why is everyone so certain this "dream ticket" will win? The math says it's pretty much a split. I think the Democrats are getting way ahead of themselves.
It would be a nightmare every one would want to wake up from.
Of course the spinners would say different.
I am a Republican and I am becoming tired of Limbaugh's toxic rhetoric. He does not represent me nor many of my true Republican friends. Both Hillary and Barack would be honorable and formidable foes this Fall. If they teamed up together it would be very tough to beat them.
Maybe if McCain chose Lieberman as a running mate?
Rush Limbaugh is an idiot and he needs to focus on Republican issues. If he was that intelligent he would be running for president.
Rush Limbaugh should not be on the air. He is the most despectable person I ever heard. Who is he to comment on others. He should take care of his drug problems instead. That man is a very bad example. Please get rid of him. He is anti-american.
Well, Rush, maybe that's why you flunked out of college. The dream ticket is unlikely, but would win hands down. Largely due to the fact that the moron you put in office has destroyed the credibility of Republican party.
I don't think Obama would ever be Clinton's vp, and after the smears she has put him through in this campaign, I doubt he would want her to be his. Since Clinton has been pushing the "skeletons" in Obama's closet, perhaps we should start bringing up the Peter Paul and fundaising scandals with China in hers.
I'm sure Condi Rice appreciates the sentiment.
The EPA should indite him for air-wave pollution.
limbaugh you are the lowest of new reporters no network should even mention your name.....you have not had one constructive thing to say about anything since you started your talk show.
people must be hard up if they cant find someone who is constructive in their remarks
The Canadian memo shows us the "change we can believe in."
I don't think Obama should bla,e Hillary for negative campaign for his own mistake. Who started distribute the fliers about Hillary's NAFTA stand to Ohio people? that made Hillary so upset and attack him back.
Hey Rushie boy:
Its not a "dream ticket" if Hillary is on it. Barack would not lower himself to being Hillary's v.p nor would he want her as his v.p.
End of story.
