Barack Obama Just Might Need Hillary
Without Hillary on the ticket, Dems will lose.
Nah, you think?!@!?
Clinton, whether appropriately or not, seen by a great many Americans as someone who knows her way around the international stage. In fact, members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee who are not fans of Clinton have told me that she has far better international connections than McCain or Obama.
She also has some pretty good connections in the swing states of Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Boy, that's the understatement of the century. Of course, if Hillary is on the so-called dream ticket, Obama will have to watch his backside. That's right, according to a few Obamazoids, his life just might be in peril with the bitch who dared dream of a presidency for herself. It's the periodic claws that come out every full moon without warning...
If Obama takes the stage in front of the Old State Capital in Springfield, Illinois, Saturday with Evan Bayh at his side, it will be news -- but not very exciting news. If he does so with Joe Biden, it will be bigger new -- but it's not like Biden brings the "wow" factor.
If Obama takes the stage with Clinton at his side, it will be the dominant news story of the weekend, the convention and perhaps of the fall campaign.
Ruff, ruff. Bou, bou, my little grasshoppers.
