Want to put the election away, Barack Obama? Yep, one more time, with feeling, pick Hillary Clinton as your VP. The most compelling reason? Obama is underperforming with Clinton supporters, the most persuadable group for him. Picking Hillary Clinton is the most powerful action Obama can take to persuade them. It is that simple. . . .

what possible reason would he not pick her. Makes me question the brains over there. Risk a win or outright win it? Seems like a no brainer to me. . . .
I remember way back Randi Rhodes screaming for a Unity ticket when people still thought HRC would win. She was screaming that it was the only way Hillary could heal the rift, yadiyada blah, blah. Where are the screaming voices for unity now, except for BTD and a few others.
No way of knowing but if Hillary was the nominee and she didn't choose Obama, would there be blood on the streets? . . .
