posted by on May 23 at 11:20 AM

With all the talk today about Hillary Clinton deserving / demanding / blackmailing-her-way-into the VP slot, a poll:

Obama picking Clinton as VP would be:

Suicidal is the only correct answer. Remember what happens if he um.. slips and falls down the White House stairs.

Suicidal but also dangerous. She can't be let near any position of power anymore. She's gone mental.

suicide indeed. this may be really difficult for a lot of clinton fans to understand, but the whole point of voting for obama was to keep the clintons as far away from the white house as possible. it *might* appease clinton's base (although many of them seem to think the nomination is hillary's birthright. anything less than the no. 1 slot probably wouldn't satisfy them), but alienate almost everybody else.

You're missing the real option:

- Insane.

Because it would be.

I ended up choosing suicidal.

Duh. You always pick the longest answer on these.

You left out "stupid".

Obama's VP choice will be a white male southerner who's demonstrably a smidge to his right on a few showy but unimportant issues. Jim Webb, or someone very much like him in other words.

You left out "John McCain's wet dream."

@5 - um, that would have been "Appease-tastic".

Can't you count?

Post RFK assasination reference, there's no chance for a VP Hillary Rodham Clinton. I would be amazed if it were otherwise.

It might be suicidal, but the only possible reason for it would be appease-tasticism. So I chose that.

it would be dumb as fuck. appease-tastic doesn't even begin to describe it. It would be paradoxical and probably the most insane thing to ever happen, ever, were it to happen. It would be lke Superman and Lex Luthor moving to Cali and getting married, but worse in every way.
