Obama? Clinton? Barack? Hillary? The choice went back and forth for months. Now that Obama has claimed victory, it will soon be time for him to claim his choice for a running mate.

Hillary Clinton seemed to campaign for it Tuesday night. She does have a lot of followers. And imagine the history-making potential of this team… the first African-American President AND the first female Vice-President. But are two firsts one too many? Too much Clinton baggage to carry around to the White House?

    I have little doubt Clinton is qualified, but, no way. Two terms for Bill in the White House is enough. Let’s get another family in there. Obama doesn’t need her anyway.

    I can’t see Hillary adding anything to Obamas run for the Presidency. She’s not a very truthful person. Leave her for Billy Boy to deal with!!!!!

    Obama would be make a huge mistake taking Hillary as his Vice. He needs someone that will help and support him. She can’t even get her head on and realize it is over. And for her to go on about the popular vote, I believe the voting was not complained about when her husband won.

    I have no doubt Hillary is experienced but just like her husband she is not an honest person. I do not want to see the Clinton’s in the white house again. I agree with the woman who complained today that she does not want her vote for Hillary to be used as a bargaining chip by Hillary. How appauling that a candidate would use her supporters that way. That is what she is all about and that is what we would have seen if she got in the white house.

    Clinton has already been in the white house so why should she going back in there? It went Bush, Clinton, Bush so we, the United States of America, doesn’t need another Clinton in the white house again. So Obama should pick someone else to be his running mate.-Dan from Ankeny

    Without a doubt, Senator Obama should not take Hillary as his running mate. While he has been gracious, magnanimous, and generous of spirit toward her, she has not shown him a modicum of respect. By not acknowledging his win, by withholding her support, not only is she acting in her own self interest (not the party’s) she is demonstrating that sense of entitlement that has saturated her campaign. Bill Clinton says she has “earned” a spot on the ticket, she says she would consider it, but that is not her decision to make. Why would Senator Obama want her on his ticket considering how both Clintons have behaved during this campaign? Basically, here are the facts. She lost. She needs to get over it. People need to quit talking about Hillary and start focusing on the race to come.

    Obama should definetly not choose clinton as a running mate. She would not be any help to him because she ignores the facts and lies without apology. Instead of congratulating Obama she ignored a completely historical moment because she’s too proud to admit she has lost.

    I doubt it, if Obama picks Hillary.More likely, he’ll choose a black male or white male. Probably some mexican, like Richardson.Maybe O.J.Who knows!But he needs to be committed-follow through on McCain’s offer on 10 debates.Just cause he WON last nite, doesn’t mean he should take a breather.He’s the black dude that wants to make history!

    If Obama chose Clinton as his running mate, and won the presidency, I am afraid his life expectancy would be very short. All she wants is power, and she doesn’t care how she gets it.
