    Default Sign the petition to keep Hillary Clinton off the Democratic ticket

    She would only undermine his message of change and piss off his anti-war base. Whatever he would gain by picking her would be lost.

    GO HERE to sign the petition and spread it around.

    Thanks but I have no interest in signing this. Considering how many people did vote for her I think it would be in his best interest to have her on the ticket.

    How effective is this petition going to be? I doubt she'll look at a bunch of signatures and just roll over.

    frankly, she's been a bitch the entire election. While Obama praised her, all she did was tear him down and cheer on McCain. Total Rethuglican tactics.

    She hasn't earned it, and she wouldn't even survive the vetting process

    He did. Constantly. Her achievements, and her record, and her abilities.

    I agree. I really don't think he has a good chance of beating McCain without her on the ticket.

    She still hadn't acknowledged his win last night! She wasn't gracious, she doesn't deserve the VP spot. She is basically strong-arming her way onto the ticket with her 17 million votes. There are a lot of older white women in the class I teach , and basically they don't want her on the ticket..they said they will stay home(there are A LOT of people who feel this way). Before last the hard working white people crack, it seemed plausible, but now...pahlease!!



    Hilary Rosen


    I Am Not a Bargaining Chip, I Am a Democrat


    Senator Clinton's speech last night was a justifiably proud recitation of her accomplishments over the course of this campaign, but it did not end right. She didn't do what she should have done. As hard and as painful as it might have been, she should have conceded, congratulated, endorsed and committed to Barack Obama. Therefore the next 48 hours are now as important to the future reputation of Hillary Clinton as the last year and a half have been.
    I am disappointed. As a long time Hillary Clinton supporter and more importantly, an admirer, I am sad that this historic effort has ended with such a narrow loss for her. There will be the appropriate "if onlys" for a long time to come. If only the staff shakeup happened earlier; if only the planning in caucus states had more focus; if only Hillary had let loose with the authentic human and connecting voice she found in the last three months of the campaign. If only. If only. I have written many times on this site about the talents of Hillary Clinton and why I thought she'd make a great President.
    After last night's final primary, she was only about pledged 100 delegates behind him. Ironic that after not wanting to make the decision for so long, it was in fact, the superdelegates who made the decision. But I guess they did so for another reason. It just isn't her time. It is his time. It's a new day that offers a freshness to our party that many have longed for. We felt the rush of new voices and a new energy in the Congressional sweep of 2006 and the sweep continues. It has been an organic shift. And a healthy one.
    The life's work of Bill and Hillary Clinton in partnering with so many African Americans uniting our purpose and promoting our mutual issues is as responsible for Barack Obama's success as our first African American nominee as anyone. And yet, that joy is being denied for them by themselves. It is so sad.
    So, I am also so very disappointed at how she has handled this last week. I know she is exhausted and she had pledged to finish the primaries and let every state vote before any final action. But by the time she got on that podium last night, she knew it was over and that she had lost. I am sure I was not alone in privately urging the campaign over the last two weeks to use the moment to take her due, pass the torch and cement her grace. She had an opportunity to soar and unite. She had a chance to surprise her party and the nation after the day-long denials about expecting any concession and send Obama off on the campaign trail of the general election with the best possible platform. I wrote before how she had a chance for her "Al Gore moment." And if she had done so, the whole country ALL would be talking today about how great she is and give her her due.
    Instead she left her supporters empty, Obama's angry, and party leaders trashing her. She said she was stepping back to think about her options. She is waiting to figure out how she would "use" her 18 million voters.
    But not my vote. I will enthusiastically support Barack Obama's campaign. Because I am not a bargaining chip. I am a Democrat.

    If she was a man, no one would be talking about 'him being gracious'. Frankly, during the general election, even if Obama wins all the states he carried in the primaries, there is no way he can be elected electoral math wise. He needs a VP who can carry the North East states, California, and Florida all of which Obama lost during the primaries. Hmmmmm, who would that be if not Hillary Clinton? The combined ticket will guarantee a win. Although if I were Hillary, I'd personally be more interested in a meaty cabinet appointment such as secretary of state or attorney general, rather than VP. With the exception of Cheney, the VP spot has been pretty powerless, historically speaking.
