Why Obama Needs Clinton
We’ve all been speculating on why Bill Clinton agreed to appear at the Democratic Convention to nominate Barack Obama for his second term. Customarily, it’s the Vice President who gets to do that, but Joe
Bourbon Bite Me Biden, dammit! - (Ahem) Vice President Joe Biden is nowhere to be found.
Instead, the man Obama accused of being “Racist!” more than once is stepping up to convince us to give him another term (follow that link^ – its juicy!). I’m so sure he’s sincere. And I’m equally sure that pigs will fly, hell will freeze and I will wake up straight some day. My mother will be so proud.
And we thought Obama/Biden were Strange Bedfellows…
Lets face it – there is a method to picking a VP. They usually represent your weakest demographic, and you desperately need them to shore up the votes you don’t have chance in hell of wining. Think Kennedy/Johnson, Carter/Mondale, Regan/Bush and Clinton/Gore. I know I’m not the only one who remembers how Biden chewed up Barack and spit him out throughout the 2008 primary contest. Biden could have been Hillary Clinton’s tag-team partner. But then Donna Brazile reared her ugly-ass head and said that any Democrat who doesn’t support Obama could stay home, and then reminded us that she gets two votes!
Next thing you know, Joe and Barry start palling around like Thelma and Louise, and Joe becomes Barry’s VP pick – gotta get those white, blue collar male voters, and Biden had them in the palm of his hand. Four years later, the worm has turned, and now Biden and anyone else associated with incredibly shrinking Obama (except Hillary Clinton) is viewed with contempt.
This Is Better Than Christmas!
Obama has now run the Democratic party into the ground, and there is only one person with enough political bona fides (besides Hillary, who is prevented by law from campaigning) that can try to rescue his sorry ass: his arch nemesis William Jefferson Clinton. Hmmm… I think I’m going to remind everyone in the AA community that their Hero picked an avowed racist (by Obama’s own words) to nominate him. That should pick off a few AA votes (who am I kidding?).
So why did Barry pick Bill? Well for one thing, the Democratic brand is in the toilet. After purging the Blue Dogs from the party and then going on a wild little spending spree, Obama’s narcissistic bungling has taken its toll. I have it on good account that the hope is that Obama’s deflated base will be reminded of the glory days (see: Clinton Presidency). It will also shore up those pesky blue-collar male voters that Biden lost simply by supporting Obama.
My source tells me that ObamaKamp believes that Clinton’s presence will
trick convince his dwindling base that Obama will be a President who will have the same respect and trust of the GOP that Clinton had. Me? I think Bill Clinton will totally dwarf Obama, and remind us what we could have had if the Democrats didn’t kill Hillary’s campaign. But Bill Clinton is a good egg, and he’s always willing to help. I’m sure he’ll do his best to make sure we see exactly why Obama should have a second term ( )
Maybe ObamaKamp should see if William Shatner is available to help out with the entertainment. Otherwise, they’d truly have to be tripping to buy this crock….
