Obama and Gore: the dream ticket???

German Mardi Gras float

What If There is No Back Room?

The search for a way out of the Democrats' dilemma

Newsweek for complete article

Eleanor Clift

"No matter who wins the remaining primaries, there's no way for Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton to capture enough delegates to reach the magic number of 2,025 needed to secure the Democratic nomination. The decision will then fall to the superdelegates, elected officials and party people often demonized in the media as hacks or backroom operators. A majority of them will swing behind one or the other candidate—likely Hillary Clinton—boosting her over the top even if she lags behind Barack Obama in the pledged delegate count.

And they will do this dastardly deed behind closed doors, in the electronic equivalent of the smoke-filled room, plotting over cell phones and making their decision based on implied favors and self-interest.

The roughly 350 superdelegates who have not yet endorsed are all free agents. There's nothing that says they have to act in concert, and they'll work to avoid anything that fuels conspiracy theories. "My real worry is there is no back room," says this adviser. Clinton says she'll go all the way to the convention in August. If there's a stalemate, the superdelegates could decide to pass on the first ballot to test the candidates' strength at that juncture. We could then be way back to the future, the first time in the modern reform age that a candidate is not chosen on the first ballot.

If that happens, the convention could turn to a compromise candidate. Al Gore is the most obvious and perhaps the only contender who could head off a complete meltdown in the party. "

It is also being written about here..........and this one is written by an extremely obvious Obama supporter kool aid brain. hahahhaa

Obama and Gore: the dream ticket

National Post

"This means that the Democrats have only one dream ticket: Obama and Al Gore who is the only potential candidate with more national security experience, and world profile, than Republican John McCain. Without Gore as Obama's running mate, the party's continuing candidate contest will simply play into McCain's hands ...."

"The facts are that neither Obama nor Hillary have as much experience as does McCain. Hillary has an experienced husband, but she never even had security clearance in the White House. No First Lady does and no First Lady, including Bill, should have be privy to national secrets and strategy sessions"


Wild Thing's comment.......

I put the two links because it does show it is being discussed. The first one from Lynn is the best one, because the second one I found is so pro Obama it is sickening.

Not sure how much of this is wishful thinking on the part of Eleanor Clift, but in thinking about it I don't see Al Gore playing VP again. Gore is not going to be second fiddle ever again He is an unstable person imo and I think that is why he likes his playing the Global warming god to his mother earth goddess he worship's.....what is it called Gia or something like that.

Also Gore is making tons of money now fleecing gullible idiots.

Whatever ticket Obama will be on, his own alone, or under Hillary hahaha is a “nightmare” as well as a national disgrace.

Thank you so much Lynn for sending the first link and article to me.

Thank you Mark for the photo of the German Mardi Gras float.

Perhaps this is what the dummys had planned all along--to run some weaklings who would cause this chaos and then put Gore in like the Pope.

I agree with WT that Gore would not accept second place. All of these Dems are so vain and hateful that the eventual Dem presidential candidate may have a difficult time finding a heavyweight running mate.

Al Gore is having too good a time and raking in millions acting like he is a God unto himself. No way would he give that up for the lowly jobs of Vice-President with someone else who thinks he is God or even President itself.

Barack Obama will pick someone who has executive experience and knows government. Gov. Bill Richardson is the only one actively seeking the job as Vice-President and fits the PC (Hispanic) and experience requirements.

Lynn you know what that is very possible. Gore says he does not want to run at least he did when this all began. But they all lie so maybe he will say yes closer to Nov.

Thanks again Lynn for the link.

Les I thought it was against the rules for him to even be a VP, but apparently there is no rule about that. LOL He can make a career out of being a VP. How funny is that on a weird kind of level anyway.

Tom, it sure will be a wild ride the rest of this year. Like you said they hate so much.

I would hate to be in politics with either party. Way too much selling of a persons soul to do it.

The Sorelosermen lost the 2000 election by ONLY winning 20 blue states. The Goreons lost TENNESSEE and ARKANSAS and if they had won only ONE of those two states, the Florida 25 electoral votes wouldn't have mattered!
On December 14, 2000 the US Supreme Court ruled for BUSH CHENEY and the final score was:
Sorelosermen 266

Clift is a scum bag / hag socialist that can't refute the above FACTS! AMEN!!
