    It's all moot. Hillary and Obama are going to end up running mates; the only question is who's name will be at the top of the ticket.

    (If it's Hillary, I strongly suggest that Mr. Obama avoid Ft. Marcy Park.)

    In the ideal world I would have liked to see Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich be picked by their respective political parties, but that is not going to happen. As long as Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee don't get picked as the Republican Party candidate I am not that worried. Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee scare the hell out of me, as they are total control freaks.

    Huckabee scares me too. But I'm glad his early upset hasn't led to more votes elsewhere.

    I wasn't a taxpayer or a politically-informed, voting citizen during the Bill Clinton years- so I guess I have less of that baggage regarding Hillary. I just liker her approach. She states the problem x, what's been done about problem x, and what she plans to do in the future about problem x. It's linear. I haven't seen anything about Obama to be excited about (nor anything to hate). I don't claim to know anything about leadership from someone's debate style.

    I might've voted for Kucinich, except he dropped out.

    You think so? I keep reading speculation that it will happen and counter-speculation saying it will never happen. I suppose it would do to unite the Democratic vote, but do you think either would be satisfied/willing to work together/ run for vice president?

    Considering the Republicans are fighting over how best to lose in '08, I'd say the chances of a Democrat victory in November are pretty great... and the VP is always the heir apparent to the presidency, provided the candidate is young enough and fit. I think either Hillary or Obama would be hard-pressed to turn down such an opportunity.

    I agree. From what I understand, Reagan and Bush the Elder didn't get along at all, but they recognized what they had together. I think an Obama/Clinton ticket (in some order) would be a good idea simply because of electability...you immediately become the favored ticket for blacks, women and Oprah

    On the other hand, if the nomination is hard fought and winds up close at the end, I think that this ticket could suffer from a "who's in charge?" vibe. In a case like this, the winner might be more comfortable choosing someone like John Edwards who looks good, speaks well, radiates sincerity, and is fairly inoffensive.

    It never fails to astonish me how much pure influence Oprah has. Even here, fully across the world. If she features a book on her book club, for example, it will sell huge amounts. Hundreds of copies a week in our store alone, sometimes.

    I'm such a poli sci nerd that I'm always sad on Super Tuesday that I don't live in a state that has an earlier primary! our primaries are some of the latest in the country, so everything will already be decided before I ever get to vote :steam:

    I'm not a huge fan of anyone this year anyways

    I'm not certain, but I think my Ron Paul bumper sticker has earned me a keyed car. The scrape is obvious, but I can't determine how long it's been there.

    Ouch. Vandalism due to political affiliation? I'm glad I have no such stickers on my car (just the schools I went to).
