(CNN) – Add Obama supporter Sen. Ted Kennedy to the list of joint-ticket naysayers.
In an interview airing this weekend, the Massachusetts senator told Bloomberg’s Al Hunt that despite widespread talk of a ticket featuring both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, "I don't think it's possible."
He added that “…I would hope that he would also give consideration to somebody that has - is in tune with his appeal for the nobler aspirations of the American people. And I think if we had real leadership - as we do with Barack Obama - in the number-two spot as well, it'd be enormously helpful.”
Kennedy also said that he had not spoken with former President Bill Clinton since endorsing Barack Obama.
Obama all the way!!! I'm a true democrat that's why I will vote for OBAMA!!
Kennedy saying American voters are looking for someone with "nobler aspirations" than Clinton is political code for calling the Clintons lowlifes.
What an old sourpuss! A joint ticket is most likely the only way to go, otherwise thousands - perhaps millions - of people will not be voting for a democratic candidate.
Like himself? A drunk "ladykiller"? Lucky Bill – he was spared the suffering of those pointless conversations
I think that you have your facts confused. The Obama campaign used race as an issue in NC.
HILLARY = SORE LOSER!!!
Thanks Kennedy – Why speak with that guy!!!! You had a shouting match and he thought you were crazy for going with Obama.......I think Bill is probably on the bottle....lol.
Ted Kennedy is a Clinton hater. Everybody knows that.
Why should he? Bill's wife is a loser!! She's divisive and haughty and that's not what this country needs!
If Obama choose Clinton, it will contradict the principle of his campaign message for change. She is a Washinton insider and represents old politics. She had proved that through her vicious negative campaign, so it's a big NO. Period.
Ted. It's too late to change your mind. You have sunk this ship.
That's because Hillary Clinton isn't liberal enough for him (never thought I'd say that). Senator Kennedy is a disgrace to John and Bobby's legacy.
Ted go back to the BAR, that's where you belong
Love the wes clark suggestion. that would be a very strong choice. as would sen. sherrod brown.
His Vp pick will be a black man as he is...You know its the truth........
If Hillary stills nomination and her or McCain becomes president I fear the United States will have another terrorist us attack against us.
Obama is the only one that can save us.
Sit down fat man...
Jim Webb, governor of Virginia ,and a former republican could be an excellent choice for VP. The dems would win VA, a red state ,and would get the support of the blue collar whites. He was in the military so the rewards would be huge.
Oh shut up Kennedy I live in New England and no one can stand you or Kerry. Your state will probably go RED.
If people are asking, Is he dissing Hillary? then they just don't see what I see in Hillary. She is not in my opinion a leader of the same caliber as Obama. Somebody like Edwards as VP, somebody we can trust, would be ideal, but let the DNC decide, as long as they don't decide on Hillary. She would ruin the mix.
Hillary is out. Out! Really out.
So, Obama is sending out his surrogates to attack Hillary today. Wake up people, Obama is just another politican, and a hypocrite as well.
Why would anyone listen to that slease-ball. Obama is above slease then why does he hange with Ted Kennedy. If "elections are about the future – not the past" then why constantly compare Obama to Kennedy and MLK? Tell Ted to shut the hell up and sit down!
Janet Napolitano ! Perfect VP. I would miss her here in AZ but she really is a great Governor. And she was one of the first to endorse Obama.
Smart smart lady.
By the way Elisabeth,
Self confidence, intelligence and integrity do not equal arrogance
(better go back to school and learn to spell)
Can Nancy Peloski run as Obama's running mate? She is a powerful woman who can stand on her own not on her husbands history or presidency. How about Hillary supporters?
of course we can't have a liar on a ticket of honor.she's the type of politician,we're trying to get rid of.she's too much like mccain.
