    I know many of you very much dislike both of them, but those who feel that way probably don't like any other Democratic candidate much more. From a political point of view, a Clinton-Edwards ticket would evoke youth, progress, modernity, and be highly qualified as well. Both candidates are youthful acting looking, and their records (in all honesty) are mainstream liberal on social issues and moderate on almost everything else. There are even a few key issues where they are among the conservative Democrats, such as the war and economy.

    The trial lawyer charge against Edwards would be nullified by the lobbyist charge against Thompson, who I think will win the Republican nomination. There really aren't many good charges against Hillary, at least no one so far has cited any substantial example, other than the Health Care fiasco, which doesn't look nearly as bad in light of today's values. Also, from articles I've read, she will likely get some significant endorsements from some of the major veterans groups in New York.

    I'm not endorsing this ticket, but just thinking that it would be a pretty good one. Hillary has high unfavorable's right now, but so did Reagan (who from a liberal perspective was every bit as awful as governor of California as righties think Hillary was awful as First Lady).

    Next to Romney, those two are the worst. Please let the Dems be stupid enough to do that, as it would guarantee that the 3 biggest frauds in the election wouldn't have a chance of winning.

    Here they are in all their Back Stabbing Hateful Censorship Glory, these two Morons are supposed to be professionals and the idiots don't even know enough to keep their stinking wretched mouths shut when they are around microphones, I doubt you will see or hear this in the Liberal Media but Fox caught it and has been playing it, they were caught on camera stabbing their buddies in the back.

    News:
    Hillary Clinton and John Edwards were overheard Thursday collaborating on a strategy to eliminate other Democratic candidates from future presidential debates and forums. (censorship again) :singing:

    I prefer the more moderate Evan Bayh of Indiana. Bayh's conservatism will nicely balance out Clinton's more liberal views. Bayh is against partial birth abortion and against gun control. His presence on the ticket will put the midwestern states of Indiana, Ohio, and Missouri in play.

    Clinton/Bayh vs Giuliani/Romney

    The irony is that the Clinton/Bayh may be more conservative than Giuliani/Romney.

    Romney / Paul vs. Clinton / Kucinich

    Here's what happens:
    One week before the general election, with Hillary holding a 20 point lead, the New York Post publishes a front-page story about her affair with George Stephanopolis. Half the Democratic voters are disillusioned and write-in Al Gore. The party is split and lose to the Republicans.

    Romney/Paul era begins. Unfortunately, Romney is assassinated by radical supporters of plural marriages from northern Idaho and western Montana. Ron Paul, incredibly assumes the Presidency and the country is healed.

    Prove that can't happen!

    We could take any two radical liberals and you would see them as your own personal little wet dream ticket, but fact of the matter is that Clinton would never in a million years choose Edwards as her running mate, for reasons too numerous to go into here.

    The Democrats' real dream ticket is Gore-Obama, but if Gore doesn't wanna run, then when Hillary wins the nomination she would do well to go with someone like Gephardt.

    Hillary would never accept it.................. Edwards would be a death knell for her. It will be Clinton/Obama....... or Obama/Clinton.


    There is no place for the "Silky Pony" at the 08 table.

    No way. Ya simply can't have a ticket with one spot for a woman and one spot for a black guy. Sorry, but you simply need a white guy in one of the spots... so if Hillary or Obama won the nomination, they will be selecting a white guy for #2. Plus you can't have a situation where you risk the VP nominee overshadowing the top of the ticket.

    This is why the ideal ticket would be Gore-Obama. Fortunately the democrats are too stupid to ever do such a thing. If Gore had any brains in his skull, which it seems he does not, he would approach Obama today to offer a slot on his ticket. Convince Obama that he can't beat Hillary alone (which is the truth) and get him on board with Gore. Obama campaigning for Gore would be enough to beat Hillary for the nomination.

    Obama/Hillary/Edwards one of them may be nominated but you will never see one of them elected president, the Liberal Media does everything it can to try and "Hide" the war that we will be fighting for many more years (Muslim Terror) none of those three Liberals will be able to keep this country safe, they won't even address the war, none of them will tell the people what their plan is or how they will deal with the bombers, Al Queda would love to see one of those three become the next President.

    Remember this, there is a man by the name of Thompson out there, he will be your next president, The Left Wing Liberal wants you to forget 9/11 but the people will never forget, and they know another one is coming.

    Jesus, imagine the trouble this country would have been in with people like Ears Obama, Hair Comb Eddie, And Pant Suit Hillary around in 1941, Hitler & Tojo would have loved them (just as bin laden does)
