comes another inconvenient truth. Despite all the attention to Oprah
for Obama and the pundit blabbering about the Democratic primary horse
race the outcome has been predetermined. What people do not want to
know is that power elites control what the Democratic ticket will be.
When the primaries end the winner will be the reigning plutocracy.
powerful elites want Hillary Clinton in the White House if the Democrats
get their turn in the rigged two-party system. Just one big problem:
The establishment plutocracy wants her more than most Americans trust
or like her. No matter how much she spends and no matter how many big
name endorsements she gets, her phoniness and arrogance prevail. She
would be America’s irritating Panderer-in-Chief. What to do?
elites the answer is crystal clear. Obama is too young and inexperienced
and less trustworthy for the elites, meaning he is less corrupted by
big money than Hillary. But he is perfect to offset Hillary’s
negatives. A majority of voters can succumb to months of slick advertising
promoting the first woman president and first black vice-president and
future president. And eight years as vice president will train Obama
to be an obedient Washington insider.
will still mount a vicious attack on Clinton, Obama will moderate those
efforts. Hillary can be the annoying bad cop that people fear and hate,
while he is the good guy that people like and believe. And make no mistake:
what friction exists between the two will be quickly replaced by their
ambition. Obama will tell his supporters (and Oprah hers) to back the
compromise ticket and he will negotiate a sweet deal to gain big influence
as vice president like Cheney has had. Then we can all prey (delude
ourselves) that he might curb Clinton’s tendencies to use military
force rather than diplomacy, and create more terrible trade agreements
and wasteful federal programs. Obama might even fight the assault on
the middle class and rising economic inequality. Might.
& World Report’s Paul Bedard made these points in 2006 about
a Clinton-Obama ticket: “Some Republican advisers to the White
House and leading 2008 hopefuls Sen. John McCain and Rudy Giuliani see
the ticket as an easy winner built on the enthusiasm it would generate
in Democratic circles. Their theory is that Clinton would stand a good
chance to pick up the states that Sen. John Kerry won in 2004. While
not enough to win the election on her own, the addition of Obama would
help push closely divided states like Ohio over into the Democratic
column, thereby giving the Clinton-Obama ticket the White House. …Obama
could help soften Clinton's image and bring more African-American voters
to the ticket as well as independents seeking real and symbolic change.”
2007 The New York Times political blog raised the same possibility and
there were hundreds of wide-ranging comments. Though many expressed
negativity about Clinton, many others showed enthusiasm for a Clinton-Obama
ticket, as shown by the following five comments:
would be an unbeatable ticket. She has the experience as both a senator
and she knows the foreign nations as her work as First Lady, remember
Bill’s campaign slogan “Two for the price of one.”
with Bill back in the White House, her as Pres, could surely let Obama
earn his stripes and after 8 years will become what could be America’s
first black president.
I too would
love to see a Hillary-Obama ticket. I believe Obama would settle for
a VP position because he is young, has served only 2 years as a US senator,
and has a long career ahead of him.
If the Dems
are smart, and I hope they are, the ticket will be Clinton-Obama and
it will be unbeatable in 2008 and again in 2012. Then in 2016 and 20020
Obama will be top dog on the ticket thus providing sixteen years of
a Democratic presidency.
is pretty powerful sounding! I’m all for it! You folks who have
been programmed to hate Hillary need to get over it already. She is
one smart woman who has more than enough experience in the white house
and she will make one hell of a prez! Obama will learn a lot from president
Clinton and will be ready to lead our great nation in 2016 or 17!
Hillary on the same ticket would be terrific. With these 2 candidates
the country could become a democratic society for 16 years!
In sum, whenever
you hear more chatter about the tight Democratic primary race take a
breath. Get back in touch with your cynicism. Talk about change is for
campaigns; protecting the status quo is for winners. Plutocrats know
who they want and what voters can be conned into voting for. Despite
primaries the ultimate outcome has already been determined by the faceless
fat-cat plutocrats running and ruining our nation. Think Big Oil, Big
Insurance, Big Pharma, Big Business, Big Law and Lobbying Firms, and
Big Wall Street Money. They can pump in the money and endorsements to
make Clinton the winner and the corporate mainstream media will assist.
rigged-election-master Fidel Castro called the Clinton-Obama ticket
“invincible.” And, as to a winning Clinton-Obama ticket,
smarmy Fox News analyst Dick Morris said “I'm leaving the country
if this happens." Hopefully more Fox News liars and idiots would
do likewise. Does that possibility justify voting for that first-ever
ticket? No. The better moral and patriotic decision is to not participate
in the two-party criminal conspiracy we call our political system and
not vote for any Democrat or Republican for federal office. Those supporting
Clinton’s rivals eventually will see this truth.
