Fine, the Black Man Can Be On Top: Obama/Clinton 08
Yes, that's an inflammatory statement from a radical black bisexual woman who rejoices in all sexualities and laments the obvious statement liberal America has made to women. It's no wonder, the only people of note even vaguely still in favor of Clinton are women, we who wanted a chance too. A split ticket becomes our damn chance, not just yours or mine; I'll continue to fight for this possibility. It might fucking save the world, and I'm almost positive it's what Al Gore wants (or sees as the best possible outcome). The dismissive statements from Obamafawnia* had indicated a snowball chance in hell, and on the other side--firmly entrenched in the Clinton camp are women, queers and scientists. I think one of the only variances between the two is Clinton's push for increased space spending.
"She is tireless, she is smart. She is capable. And so obviously she'd be on anybody's short list to be a potential vice presidential candidate," said Obama, who inched closer to winning the nomination by routing Clinton in North Carolina and almost defeating her in Indiana on Tuesday.
Some Democrats are saying Obama and Clinton would be a formidable team against Republican John McCain in the race to the November election.
According to a CBS News/New York Times poll released last week, a majority of both Obama and Clinton voters say they would favor a so-called "Dream Ticket" involving both candidates. -Reuters
As a black woman, I beg of you. I know it might not make a difference, but I wanted to try.
As I've remarked before, it's not unprecedented this level of veracity and it does indicate growth in our democracy. And I think she'll take it, and I think he'll ask. Whether or not it was planned this way from the beginning, I'd hate to speculate. NOT!
*Whiteboy and girl fandom that reeks of possible Uncle Tom ignorance, a'la some of what made Morgan Freeman so popular in Driving Miss Daisy (e.g. redemption from white guilt, salt and pepper hair, sharp but seemingly cheap suits...)
