Palin says Obama regrets bypassing Clinton

There are 136 comments on the The Associated Press story from Sep 13, 2008, titled Palin says Obama regrets bypassing Clinton . In it, The Associated Press reports that:

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said Friday she thinks Barack Obama regrets not making Hillary Rodham Clinton his running mate.

Palin praised Clinton's 'determination, and grit and even grace' during the Democratic primaries, sounding an altogether different note than when she suggested earlier this year that the New York senator was whining about negative press coverage and campaigning in a way that was not advancing the cause of women in politics.

'I think he's regretting not picking her now,' Palin told ABC News.

Once again, the party that was once for individual liberties shows that it has been hijacked. These people that now run the Republican party have the audacity to tell everyone that they know what Sen. Obama thinks and try to tell him how he should conduct his campaign and life. Of course, when you are deluded enough to think you have all the answers that is no great feat. The McCain campaign is just like the administration that has screwed things up for 7 1/2 years. If we, the citizens of this country, don't bring actual change then it may take our grandchildren to straighten things out. Assuming that it can be fixed and who knows?

CNN '04 - "Why have you ruled out running Nationally for President in 2008"?

Obama's Reply - "I'm a believer in knowing what you're doing when you apply for a job, and I think that if I were to seriously consider running on a National ticket, I would essentially have to start now ('04) before having served a day in the Senate.
Now there may be some comfortable with doing that but I'm not one of them..."



Contradictory & Confused Obama!

Just more evidence of someone clearly NOT READY TO LEAD on day 1.

Hillary was a better choice than Obama Hussein.

You cant say that if McCain had Palin for his pick BEFORE Osama picked Binladen that he would not have picked BJ Bills wife for his running mate.

Palin should be regretting being a dead beat uninformed pit bull mom when it came to teaching here 17 year old pregnant daughter about sex education. May be Bristol would not have been such a "Door Knob". Palin shoud be regretting having an affair with her husband's best friend and business partner. Maybe redneck Palin need to stop looking down her nose at everyone.

"Believer" What do you believe in? The word 'change'? Bammer is an empty suit. Even the arrogant fool Biden indicated Hillary would have been a better choice than he. Pray BamBam loses or be prepared for real problems.

Dems trying to dig dirt but can find nothing as bad as that on BamBam's & Biden's neck on Palin. It is nice to see them scurry after taking a dump on Hillary and dumping Lieberman.

I believe that the Republicans have screwed up this country beyond belief. I also believe that for me to vote for McCain, who basically wants to continue the same economic policies would be foolhardy. The Democrats have has a hand in the tomfoolery, but are not near as guilty. McCain has not demonstrated to me that he can or wants to straighten things out. Do you know the definition of insanity? It is doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result. I know I'm not insane, but I have my doubts about anyone that votes for McCain. Obama at least represents a chance!

Obama is a good bet for president in 20016. He is still a political nobody. In spite of what some folks think it is best that a man be qualified for the job. A good and clear resume of his past accomplishments and failures in government. This is not the time for an amateur.

No way I will vote for Barack Hussein Osama... Im sure if he will win, middle east people will be having a party on the streets like they do after the 9/11 attacked, thinking they have a muslim brother in the WHite house.

Agree me or not, Hussein is a muslim name, and his book says, he practiced Quran for a while..

No way to OSAMA! Yes way to McCain-Palin!

Obama's worst and last important decision was a short sighted and selfish one. Not selecting Clinton doomed the Democrats to fail. So much for the first black President. It'll be a cold day in hell before the Dems try that again.

Sarah Palin abuses rape victims.

Sarah Palin is very anti-woman. She is a sad example of how a woman lets the Republican Boys Club use her.

Karl Rove won't even let her out of the house without chaperones, teleprompters and his words in her mouth....pathetic.

The Republican Boy's club chose Palin because she's still young enough to look good in a short skirt.

They bypassed older, much more experienced women who had paid their dues for a brainless Vogue Covergirl. They said that older woman aren't appealing to the Republican base.

Matt Damon says what is on the mind of most Americans.

Besides, anybody who abuses their position of power to try to have fired a former brother in-law and fires a Commissioner simply because of personal vendettas and not on the basis of job merits is unethical, untrustoworthy and unfit to be a heart-beat from the highest office in the Land.
