Obama: If I'm Not Ready, Why Suggest Vice Presidency?


Sen. Obama responded today to the Clinton's repeated suggestions of a joint "dream ticket." Said the senator at an afternoon rally: "I just want everybody to absolutely clear: I am not running for vice president. I am running to be president of the United States of America." He also addressed what some have suggested is the motive underlying the discussion; namely, that Clinton is seeking to convince voters to support her as a means to secure both Dems on a general election ticket.

"So I don't want anybody here thinking that somehow, 'Maybe I can get both.' Don't think that way. You have to make a choice in this election."

He followed up by questioning why Sen. Clinton would suggest a joint ticket while she is currently in second place in pledged delegates and popular vote:

"I won twice as many states as Sen. Clinton. I won more of the popular vote than Sen. Clinton. I have more delegates than Sen. Clinton. So I don't know how someone in second place can offer the vice presidency to someone in first place. If I was in second place I could understand but I am in first place right now."


Tom Daschle: "It's really a rare occurrence, maybe the first time in history, that the person who's running No. 2 would offer the person who's running No. 1 the No. 2 position."

Wait, he's not ready to be president but he IS ready to be Vice President (which means he has to be ready to be president)? Hillary just isn't making sense anymore.

Oh, and also, the Clintons sell out the gays every chance they get.

And Obama hasn't sold out the gays with his ex gay preacher friends going around the country talking about how it's a sickness on the campaign trail. That's one CHANGE I don't want to make.
