What Hillary means is that Bill-out-of-control is part of the Clinton package. Take it or leave it.

The other night her zombie supporter kept chanting..Denver! Denver! Denver!

I hope to GOD nothing comes of that rallying cry. We need unity.

Let me see, go from having one out-of-control VP to having two out-of-control VPs ...

Wow, what a choice.

Sibelius is sounding better everyday.

oops my bad.. I meant supporter(s) Zombies usually travel in packs!

Only in-so-far as politically feasible. I have heard everyone sighing over the dream-team coupling of Obama/Richardson, or locally, Obama/Patty Murray, but the reality is that he will probably have to choose a fairly conservative representative of the blue-collar workers he doesn't poll so well with. Politicos eschew pragmatism at their own peril and like it or not Obama will choose a running mate who won't make the independents and middle-of-the-roaders run for his opponent.

@2: It's remarks like these that have disenfranchised the zombie Democrats during this primary. This continued undeadist attitude will lead to the zombies staying in the ground in November, or worse voting for one of their own in McCain.

He could put an end to it all by choosing Former President Gore as his running mate.

I thought she mothballed her own last name when she ran for president. Is she back to "Rodham Clinton" now that she's out of the race?

@8 - the name's hillrod.

Today, Satan announced that God is permitted to exist, and does not have to support Him in His Campaign Of Evil.

He also posed for photo ops with His buds McCain and Bush.

I say Feingold. But it will not happen.

Posted by Original Monique | June 5, 2008 3:36 PM

Yawn. Still hating after all these months. She can't even do the right thing without you guys begrudging, hating, etc.

So......who do you want him to pick?
Moderate white guy Mark Warner?
Moderate white guy and former Republican, and current hick, Jim Webb?
The guys who love folks from AppalacHia?
Former Clinton supporter Rendell?
Former Clinton cabinet member Richardson?
Sebelius, who electrified us with her dynamic speech on TV -- yawn -- and who brings us might Kansas (my these 'shrooms are ymunny!!) and its massive electoral votes, whilst pissing off women?
Strickland? Lock down Ohio?
Dennis Kuinich?

Meanwhile remember all those hick voters you dumped on?
Like the ones in VA he needs to you know, actually win VA?

Obama is down there in SW VA today with Warner and Webb dropping the final g in his gerunds right and left.

He almost sounds like Bubba now.
No foolin'.

Unity, y'all.

Everyone will always hate you, unPC. Pretending to like you would look fake, so why bother?

Posted by elenchos | June 5, 2008 3:48 PM

Yeah, I actually agree with PC. The campaign is over. She's basically doing the right thing by trying to bring her supporters back into the party fold. There's no reason to mock now, unless of course you're going to mock the whole Democratic party from the sidelines, which is ok by me. But enough of the kneejerk anti-Clinton shit. It's over. If you support Obama, support Clinton's efforts to rebridge the gap.

Posted by Jay | June 5, 2008 3:50 PM

Oddly enough, I agree with PC too.

Hillary's not talking to us, she's talking to her rabid kook supporters, trying to tell them in the nicest way possible that she accepts her loss and they should too -- and get behind the best damn presidential candidate in our lifetimes.

Posted by Fnarf | June 5, 2008 3:58 PM

See how easily she's caved in to male dominance. She joins Obama's side, and all the sudden she's making comments about how women have no place deciding their own role in politics! Tut tut! She's just another sexist Obama supporter.

Posted by Ziggity | June 5, 2008 4:22 PM

Eli, you're piling on. She's being a good cadet, saying what she should. Pick on her for other things, but not this quote.

Posted by Jubilation T. Cornball | June 5, 2008 4:45 PM

elenchos, many others could say the exact same thing about you, and they probably have, which would make your comment amusing if that's what you were referencing.

Otherwise it's just lame and sad.

PC, Fnarf, and the lovely Jubilation are spot on about this.

Posted by Donolectic | June 5, 2008 5:04 PM

You can think that if it pleases you, Donolectic, but letting bygones be bygones with a white supremacist serial liar like unPC is a mistake. Accepting that portion of Hillary's base is a mistake. These people were never likely to turn out for a Democrat until they were motivated by their racism.

You'll see. Obama is going to have to embarrassingly disown these people further down the road if he lets them get too close to him now.

Mark my words.

(My own bid for the Vice Presidency might be a long shot, but at least it's honest.)

Posted by elenchos | June 5, 2008 5:46 PM

@19 -- I'm "lovely?"

Damn -- what do you look like? Maybe I'm getting some cornin' tonight!!! YEEE-HAW!!!

Posted by Jubilation T. Cornball | June 5, 2008 5:58 PM

It can't be Richardson. That'd be political suicide.

Posted by can't wait to see | June 5, 2008 6:09 PM

@22 -- I agree. It would be like Admiral Stockdale with hot sauce.

Posted by Jubilation T. Cornball | June 5, 2008 6:14 PM

Eli, I really hate your Slog posts. WTF??!! Why do you interpret everything HRC says as evidence of arrogance or evildoing? You are a shoddy excuse for a journalist.

Got a good email from Jay Inslee entusiastically endorsing Obama (I'm in his district and he WAS a superdelagate for Hillary until today). I won't paste it up here, it's pretty long, but the tone is very positive and aimed at moving forwards with everyone on the same page ("pulling the same rope" as he says).

It also speaks directly to disgruntled Clinton supporters and urges them to get on board the O-Train. It's clear Hillary and her supporters are ready to bury the hatchet, so I say we bury it and whip the old white dude's ass in November.

Posted by Gabe | June 5, 2008 9:42 PM

Okay, here's part of Inslee's email, seems like a definite step in the right direction:

"For a guy who admires Senator Obama, I am deeply concerned when I
read in the paper or receive e-mails from Hillary supporters vowing
to not support our new candidate. I am already excited about an
Obama presidency, but to those who are hesitant I implore you to join
this cause because time is a luxury we cannot afford.

Over the next few weeks, or as long as it takes, I will be urging
Hillary supporters in Washington State and across the country that we
must put the past behind us. We must be unified in our support of
Senator Obama, or else we risk another disastrous four years of a
Republican White House. Whether Obama or Clinton supporters in the
primary, we all are neighbors, we are friends, we are Democrats, and
we are family. And, like any family that has occasional squabbles,
but who has learned to put their problems behind them and move
forward, we must do the same."

OM, Feingold rocks.

But the beltway establishment won't let him get the nod for VP.
