Obama: "If I am not ready, how is it that you think I would be such a great vice president?"

There are 779 comments on the snafu-ed.blogspot.com story from Mar 10, 2008, titled Obama: "If I am not ready, how is it that you think I would be such a great vice president?". In it, snafu-ed.blogspot.com reports that:

I'm sure you've seen the recent ads / skits / whatever about Barack Obama's inexperience. Yet just last weekend, Bill Clinton said that a Clinton / Obama pairing would be a "dream ticket," with Hillary at the top. This gave Obama a reason to ask a great question Monday, at a campaign stop in Columbus, Mississippi.

She doesn't really intend to make him her veep if she should pull off some kind of miracle and get the bid. It's still another Clinton trick to try to get the public to believe that she is leading the vote count or to persude undecided voters that a vote for her would be a vote for both. I'm not buying it.

Only GOD knows who will be fit to fill the shoes for a PRESIDENT, and if OBAMA or HILLARY aren't looking to him for there best support, neither will be fit to RUN anything, but their mouth..!! In the word it say that if a man or woman has put their hands on the plow to move forward and not looking back or side to side but traveling that narrow path..........will be the only one to be able too see what the FUTURE will need to hold.

I like to see the black leader instead your freeking old lady who keep lying or crying like baby to win NH. Hell-lady let a young guy do a job and you should retire with your hobby. I used to like this lady as an intelligent first lady, now Helly and Billy are both trashy politicians.

What kind of arrogance is this? The Clintons have given a new definition to the word arrogance. The current #2 in elected delegates doesn't care what voters want. She cares only about the Clintons.
She still hasn't revealed how they got the $5 million to lend to their campaign -- no tax return yet. The Clintons still haven't released the 1st lady correspondence or the donor list for the Clintons presidential library. She still hasn't disclosed what, exactly, her experience as first lady makes her qualified to lead the nation. But she has, via Travelgate, Whitewater, and any number of other questionable ethical involvements, proven she is not honest, open, forthright, or caring of what regular old non-rich voters think to be president. She listens only to the lobbyists and corporations who make her and hubby wealthy.

I am a die-hard Democrat. I will NOT vote for that corrupt couple NO MATTER WHAT.

I think Obama is the only way she can get near the White House, unless the delegates from Michigan and Florida are added. Maybe a revote? A revote with poll watchers, and guarded! Seriously, there will be trouble. I'd like to think the Clintons would be fair, but I highly doubt it. They are in the desperation mode. Don't cheat Mrs. Clinton. If there is a re-vote, and you win fair and square, I am more than willing to support and back you. Just please, people, play fair!

Frankly I don't think you're ready for either. A stint in jail maybe, but president or vice president - no. Take HRC along.

Obama Says No Thanks To Second Spot On Ticket

Date created: 3/10/2008 1:42:27 PM
Last updated: 3/10/2008 5:05:38 PM

COLUMBUS, Miss.(AP)- Democrat Barack Obama ridiculed the idea of being Hillary Rodham Clinton's running mate Monday, saying voters must choose between the two for the top spot on the fall ticket. The Illinois senator used his first public appearance of the week to knock down the notion that he might accept the party's vice presidential nomination. He noted that he has won more states, votes and delegates than Clinton so far.

"I don't know how somebody who is in second place is offering the vice presidency to the person who is first place," Obama said, drawing cheers and a long standing ovation from about 1,700 people in Columbus, Miss.

Saying he wanted to be "absolutely clear," he added: "I don't want anybody here thinking that somehow,'Well, you know, maybe I can get both.' Don't think that way. You have to make a choice in this election."

"I am not running for vice president," Obama said. "I am running for president of the United States of America."

Obama aides said Clinton's recent hints that she might welcome him as her vice presidential candidate appeared meant to diminish him and to attract undecided voters in the remaining primary states by suggesting they can have a "dream ticket."

Obama had never suggested he might accept a second spot on the ticket. But until Monday he had not ridiculed the notion so directly, even if he did completely rule it out in Shermanesque terms.

He told the audience that it made no sense for Clinton to suggest he is not ready to be president and then hint that she might hand him the job that could make him president at a moment's notice.

"If I'm not ready, how is it that you think I should be such a great vice president?" he said, as the crowd laughed and cheered loudly.

Mississippi holds it primary Tuesday, the last contest before the Pennsylvania primary six weeks from now.

Clinton and her husband, the former president, had suggested recently that a Clinton-Obama ticket would be popular and formidable against Republican Sen. John McCain in November.

Many political activists discounted the notion all along. They noted that the two senators lack a warm relationship and, more important, that Obama would be ill-served by hinting he might accept the vice presidential slot when he holds the lead in delegates and hopes to win the presidential nomination.

In the latest Associated Press count, Obama leads Clinton, 1,578-1,472. He has won 28 contests to her 17.

Moreover, many insiders feel the ambitious and fast-rising Obama would chafe in the vice president's job, especially in a White House where Bill Clinton would almost surely play a huge advisory role.

Still, the notion of a Clinton-Obama ticket has received ample discussion in recent days on cable TV news shows and newspapers such as New York City's tabloids.

In an interview Friday in Wyoming with KTVQ-TV, a CBS affiliate based in Billings, Mont., Obama's comments were somewhat mixed.

"Well, you know, I think it's premature," he said of accepting the second spot on the ticket. "You won't see me as a vice presidential candidate."

His Monday remarks were more detailed, pointed and humorous.

Of course, they will not completely end the speculation. Presidential candidates routinely disavow any interest in the vice presidential spot. But some, including John Edwards and Al Gore, change their minds when they fall short of their top goal.

This may be a mistake on Obama's part in gaining the needed experience as Vice-President and in defeating John McCain and the Bush aganda in the fall of 2008 for the entire nation as well as the Democrat Party.

Is Obama's immaturity and lack of judgment showing once again?

Just how important is it to have an experienced person in the White House controlling our nation and military?

Is Obama truly ready and will he doom our nation and the entire world...because of his poor judgment, lack of experience, immaturity, and stupidity?

Think about it, people!

...that's been exactly my question for going on 2 weeks now...how is he ready to be vice prez now, but he has NO experience in the world? make up your mind Hill....
...oh, and has anybody bothered to ask the reporter who mistongued it,(and reported that OBama's camp told Canada to disregard his campaign rhetoric regerding NAFTA), to fix this publicly and report that he was really told that it was Clinton's camp?
