File Under Arrogance

Hillary Clinton, through Bill (a guy I used to like and hopefully will again), has "graciously" offered Barack Obama the VP slot on the ticket. Obama's perfect response:

"First of all, with all due respect, I've won twice as many states as Sen. Clinton. I've won more of the popular vote than Sen. Clinton. I have more delegates than Sen. Clinton. So, I don't know how somebody who's in second place is offering the vice presidency to somebody who's in first place."

What with the Democratic party's ceaseless march toward mediocrity, all of the candidates I might have *supported* dropped out before even the EARLY California primary, and I ended up half-heartedly voting for speechifying Obama, but I'm disgusted with both of them.

I hate having to vote for the lesser of evils.

Me too! Argh.

But they're still better than McCain.

300 million people and this is the best we have to offer? Perplexing. And sad.

No, John Edwards was the best, but "we" voted him out early.

It's really making me mad that Bill Clinton is losing his luster for me with these old-time nasty politics. Like you, I hope to regain my esteem for him eventually.

Well, if anyone is capable of making women forgive him . . . sorry, couldn't resist :)
