Hillary Clinton won through race-baiting, fear-mongering, smears and lies. That's who she is. She has no character, and she showed her true self, and the true self of those that she surrounds herself with. She claimed MICHIGAN AND FLORIDA in her speech last night. Michigan - where she was the only one on the ballot, and Florida - where no one competed. Well, if you can't win fairly, then I guess you lie and cheat and try and change the rules in the 4th Quarter of a 4 Quarter game. Thus is Hillary Clinton. THIS IS WHO SHE IS - FACE IT.
Fact is, SHE was leading in both Texas and Ohio by 20 points less than 2 weeks ago, and Obama WON Texas.
So, now, we venture on. She'll gain, maybe 10 delegates in total from the entire process yesterday, which means she's still trailing in PLEDGED DELEGATES.
I believe her ego is such that she just can't remotely believe that she's in this fight, so her camp, once again, is floating the Obama as VP.
Get that...this heifer is the one trailing in delegates, but OBAMA has to be the VP?
It's the only thing they have left.
Make no mistake Barack Obama doesn't need her as HIS VP - he has a stable of folks that he can turn to that would be great matchups for him.
But, she can't win without him.
A reader points out that:
So I see Clinton's floating the Obama as VP thing again to garner more votes for herself.
I agree with this too, because of the BS meme of her ' more experience', and those on the fence saying, ' well, maybe Obama needs more experience', and would vote for her, thinking that they would get him too. I say once again, that's utter BS, she can't win this on her own.
Another update: just got this from DailyKos:
Asked on CBS's "The Early Show" whether she and Obama should be on the same ticket, Clinton said:
"That may be where this is headed, but of course we have to decide who is on the top of ticket. I think the people of Ohio very clearly said that it should be me."
The people of Ohio? GMAFB.
She already goes into this with HALF THE COUNTRY SAYING THAT THEY WILL NEVER VOTE FOR HER.
HALF THE COUNTRY.
And, she's been working on adding Democrats to that pile too, like my family. There are 12 of us in my immedate family.
Only 2 will vote for Hillary.
The rest of us haven't figured out what we're going to do, but we do know this much:
WE WILL NEVER EVER VOTE FOR HER.
They just assume that Black folks will come around and be Good Darkies and vote for Miss Hillary, because where else will we go? Isn't that what Harold Ickes said last week?
Well, maybe my family's atypical, but maybe not. Maybe the ancestors fought and died for us to be able to make this stand. But, I'm clear. I'm never voting for her, because if I did, I will become complicit in setting the blueprint for how to take out any future Black Politician with aspirations higher than a gerrymandered Congressional Seat. I won't be a party to that.
