And what will be on the commander in chief test?

A Clinton-Obama dream team? Candidate Clinton has floated that idea from the hustings in recent days, suggesting that voters torn between voting for the first woman to head a national ticket and the first African-American to head a national ticket should vote for her... and maybe get Obama too.

Meanwhile, out of the other side of her mouth, or rather out of the mouth of Hillary Clinton's chief spokesman Howard Wolfson, Clinton contends that Obama is not qualified to be Vice President. Quoting from the linked Tribune article by Mike Dorning:
Wolfson reaffirmed Clinton’s position that Obama has not demonstrated his suitability to guide the nation in an international crisis.

“We do not believe at this point that Sen. Obama has passed that key commander in chief test,” Wolfson said.
What that test might be -- or how Hillary passed the test by going to foreign funerals and making good will tours as First Lady -- is left somewhat vague. People are simply expected to assume she's passed the test.

If there really were a written test, I'd have no doubt that Senator Clinton would get an A. She probably never even received so much as a B in her entire, storied academic career. We all know people like that: Most of them can't function in the real world.

Meanwhile again, in Mississippi, Senator Obama says he's not interested in being Vice President.

Nor has he suggested an Obama-Clinton ticket. Hmmmmmmm.

Meanwhile, the little girl sleeping soundly at 3:00 a.m. in the recent, successful Hillary Clinton 'red phone' commercial, is nearly 18 now (she was 8 when the footage was shot, originally for a railroad commercial) turns out to be an Obama supporter.

Somebody's head will roll for this one!

Of course HRC would not reciprocate and take the VP if offered to her. I think her ambitions would not allow her to be second to anyone...

Great post!

I have to say that if I hadn't already been a Obama supporter, watching the way Hillary has conducted her campaign would have put me off of her in a heartbeat.

It's like she *wants* people to vote republican. *sigh*

Am I the only one who tries to catch a male version of Monica in Hillary's crowds? Oh wait. Who would want to hug HER??
