    If this is true then it is a huge mistake for Obama. There are die-hard supporters of Clinton that will never accept this. By doing this Obama has put his pride before the fall. This is going to split the party.

  14. Turnabout is Fair Play

    Don't hate on Obama feminists and guys who wanted Hillary to be selected. She had too much baggage from the past and that included Bill and Obama knows it would have been one Republican distraction after another with her to stop the message of change with our economy, job losses, foreclosures, and getting our guys and gals out of Iraq before Russia attacks us. I'm so glad it's Biden, I could just sh!t!!

  17. HILLARY IS THE BEST

    Biden to the Brookings Institution in 2005: “We can call it quits and withdraw from Iraq. I think that would be a gigantic mistake. Or we can set a deadline for pulling out, which I fear will only encourage our enemies to wait us out — equally a mistake.”

    Hmmm. Not an impressive decision. He picks an older white male professional politician. That's it? This is going to be a Republican cake walk. All McCain has to do is pick a conservitive female to seal the deal for a blowout. Just about any of the names being suggested could ensure a win, but the female would make it a landslide.

    I'm completely dissapointed on the V.P selection. I believe Mrs. clinton was the best choice. I'm now shifting my vote towards the republican party.
