Hillary Wants To Be On Top – Of Dem Ticket

From an elated Associated Press:

Clinton hints at shared ticket

By JIM KUHNHENN and CALVIN WOODWARD, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON – Hillary Rodham Clinton, fresh off a campaign saving comeback, hinted Wednesday at the possibility of sharing the Democratic presidential ticket with Barack Obama — with her at the top…

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 two presidential contenders made the rounds of the morning network television news shows Wednesday, declaring only one thing certain — that the campaign would go on and that the next big showdown would occur April 22 in Pennsylvania…

Clinton’s victories Tuesday night denied Obama a ripe opportunity to drive her from the Democratic presidential race. But Obama came away with a large share of delegates, too, in counting that continued Wednesday, meaning he’s has a lead that’s tough to overcome.

“We still have an insurmountable lead,” Obama said. “We’re very confident about where we’re going to be and that we can win the nomination and the general election.”

Clinton and Obama spent most of the past two weeks in Ohio and Texas in a bruising campaign, with the former first lady questioning his sincerity in opposing the North American Free Trade Agreement and darkly hinting he’s not ready to be commander in chief in a crisis. Obama also confronted questions about one of his longtime political benefactors, businessman Antoin “Tony” Rezko, who went on trial Monday in Chicago on several felony fraud charges.

Clinton said Wednesday that so-called “superdelegates” — nearly 800 party officials and top elected officials who also help decide the nomination — should exercise “independent judgment” in selecting the party’s nominee.

“New questions are being raised, new challenges are being put to my opponent,” she said. “Superdelegates are supposed to take all that information on board and they are supposed to be exercising the judgment that people would have exercised if this information and challenges had been available several months ago.” …

Note how the media is claiming that Mrs. Clinton’s victory is the result of their “increased scrutiny” of Mr. Obama. This scrutiny consists of precisely eight inane questions shouted in quick succession at one press conference that hardly anyone saw.

Our media masters also are trying to credit Hillary’s laughable “3 am phone call” ad for her victories. And yet they make no mention of her latest ad which even the Clinton people admit “darkened” Mr. Obama.

Of course she probably won because of her cadre of union thugs and illegal alien voters. (Which is why she was always expected to win Ohio and Texas.)

Unfortunately, Mr. Limbaugh and the other pundits who called for Republicans to cross over and vote for Mrs. Clinton also share some responsibility for this dreadful outcome.

(Texaspsue originally posted this in “Other News,” but given the historicity of it all, it surely deserves its own thread.)
