It’s also unlikely that the Democrats could unify the party with a combined Obama/Hillary ticket. Hillary will not play second to Obama, not after having been in the White House as first Lady, even if it gives her another shot at the remaining fixtures and silverware. The only hope for a unity ticket would be if Hillary were at the head, but that has its own risks. If Hillary were to try to take the lead slot and place Obama on the ticket as her vice president, the Democrats would remain vulnerable to a question of how he came in with more popular delegates but ended up having to give up his seat and move to the back of the bus.p>I would not want to be Howard Dean when that question is asked. br> — Mike Harris br> MAJ, U.S. Army /p>
It is now the turn of faltering “savior in waiting” Barrack Hussein Obama to unleash the plague of past Clinton scandals on Hillary. Despite being in bed with dubious foreign contributors himself the “Obamanation” needs to remind voters of the Clinton’s cozy relationship with Buddhist monks, Indonesian businessmen, the communist Chinese and Chinese dishwashers. As the “prince of peace” continues to declare his love for North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Syria and Venezuela he needs to remind the fanatics at MoveOn.org it was Bill Clinton who established America’s policy of regime change in Iraq. In fact, George W. Bush was just doing Clinton’s dirty work for him ergo Hillary is the “mother” of all problems relating to Iraq and the War on Terror (since Obama refuses to accept reality that we’re winning in Iraq and the Iraqis are reconciling this would be easy for him to do).
Didn’t Hillary vote for the war before she was against it? Will Hillary expand the war to include a ground battle against pro-Obama Iran? Has she repudiated using force against psycho Hugo Chavez to keep the peace in South America? Though an ethically challenged corrupt Chicago Democrat Obama can also remind voters of Hillary’s shady business practices — cattle futures, White Water, etc. He might even have his minions in cyberspace to begin speculating about Ron Brown’s death. Conspiracy theory kooks in the Democrat party are a dime a dozen so I’m sure “Imam Obama” can spin up the nut jobs with a few well chosen words. He can even run ads asking America do they want a woman who was nothing more than a glorified law clerk handling national security issues. Oh the joy! Oh the humanity!p>Thanks to many Texas and Ohio conservatives new life was breathed into the Clinton campaign. Hopefully, the mud and “bloodletting” will really get going as America’s two most incompetent and unqualified politicians fight for the Presidential nomination of the party of despair, depression and defeat. Aren’t “chick fights” a joy to watch? Which “gal” is going to come out on top — the has-been or wannabe? Hillary vs. Obama is the “cat fight” with the potential to make the 1990’s “Clinton soap opera” look boring. br> — Michael Tomlinson /p>
Just because Republicans don’t have a dog in this fight doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the battle.p>Hillary believes that the Democratic nod was to be gifted to her because, to paraphrase the late great country singer/songwriter, Tammy Wynnette, she stood by her man. (After all, he is just a man.) If HRC didn’t truly believe she was to be automatically granted the nomination, she would have walked out on The Boy President long before he was so ingloriously impeached, but that poor choice is behind her. She has too many other items on her agenda (such as Bill’s present peccadilloes) to worry about his past indecisions. Now that she has to fight for the prize, she is going to do all that she can to ensure that she walks away the winner. Barrack Obama may be able to beat back her assault (doubtful) but as Nietzsche so wisely proffered, “What does not kill me makes me stronger.” If BHO can withstand the underhanded trickery and covert assaults of the Clinton team, he might prove a much more formidable opponent to our enemies than his current rhetoric would indicate. Currently, these remain only interesting hypotheticals. Until the Democrats can figure out a way to avoid self-destructing, Senator McCain has time to build up a war chest, choose a VP, and most importantly, mend the rift between himself and the core constituency of the GOP. br> —

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
