(CNN) – Sen. Barack Obama called some people on his short-list for the vice presidential slot Thursday night to tell them he had not selected them as running mate, a highly placed Democratic party source told CNN.
The source did not say which people got the call.
Obama has told some other potential running mates over the last few weeks that he would not be choosing them.
I just hope that if he doesn't pick Hillary, that ALL of her supporters will get behind Obama. Because that is what THEY would want if the situation had been the other way around. (I just don't think they see things that way!!)
Bill from florida
Obama aint a boy. please be respectful on what you post. if you can't post stay out of the freanzy.
If Hillary got her call it was at 3:00 a.m. Those are the only calls she'll answer.
Great headlines. OBAMA CALLS LOSERS
I'm not sure if somebody who is one of a very select group of people to be considered and vetted as a potential VP, in one of the greatest countries in the world should be called a loser.
Disco died alot faster than he is making this decison. Probably because he was flip-flopping, back and forth. If it's not Hillary, it will be one empty suit, trying to help another empty suit.
Obama/Kerry works for me
It's Al Franken
Actually, the latest count on McCain's home ownership tally was "at least seven". It's no wonder he can't keep track.
Then again, he did invent the Iraq-Afghanistan border, so it would appear that keeping track of much of anything is not one of his strong points.
Hillary – DON'T DO IT!!!
Stay far away from this creep... you'll sink with him.
You are the one Hillary!
it better be Hillary or Liberals will lose again!
I hope it's NOT Hillary. I don't want her part of that sinking ship! We need her in 2012!
I like Biden-I hope he wins! I like his fighting spirit! Whole point is to win, if Obama thinks Hillary can do that, that's fine! But he should sequester her to an outhouse somewhere in south maybe Gitmo where she won't undermine him! Thanks to her, republicans have ammu against Obama! Obama should pay off her debt only if he wins the Presidency otherwise she should go get multiple jobs like we working stiffs have!
I think it is Jesse Jackson. He has the tools to slice into the matter. Remember he was going to cut out Obama's gonads.
I like Hilary or Joe Biden
CNN in the tank for Obama. Journalism has died.
When there were still about 8 Democrats and 5 Republicans still in the race, I said "anyone but Clinton is better than what we've got now!"
As long as there's no Clinton on the ticket, Obama's got my vote! Pick her, and he loses it to McCain!
A Left Leaning Independent.
I don't know Jo-Ann. I would rule out Hillary. I mean if Obama doesnt pick Hil, then he just might risk alienating all of Hillary's soul sisters who voted for her during the primaries, and if history is any precursor to the future, it is going to be the women's vote that decide this election.
Bill Clinton won in 96 thanks to the Soccer moms, and Bush in 04 with help from the Evangelical vote, but most importantly because of the Security Moms who were just uncomfortable with John Kerry and his Iraq stance.
Let's hope that Hillary gets the supers to vote for her and wins at the convention!! But if not, he will have to choose Hillary if he has any hope at all of winning in Nov.
If neither of the above happens, I will be voting McCain, and not out of spite–just because I feel he is WAY more experienced than Obama.
Hillary already got the gas face last night. Hillary will not be on the ticket. This country cannot move forward with a Clinton on the ticket.
I'm guessing Biden or Bayh. I really hope it's not Hillary. We shall see though!
Will anyone care as much when it's McOld's turn to pick his running mate? Hopefully it will be someone with only 1 house and who thinks that people don't have to make $5 million to be considered rich...you know someone IN TOUCH with reality!!!!
You know, Obama's name is on CNN 2 to 1 over McCain, guess who's gonna win.
The Great Obama has spoken. Change is in the Air:)
