On the same day she claimed to be open to the U.S. vice presidential nomination, and on which Barack Obama obtained the delegates necessary to secure the Democratic nomination, Hillary Rodham Clinton still claimed she was not ready to concede Obama’s victory, or to secede from the “race”, which had been over in reality for some time.
Yesterday, after learning that Obama had won the necessary Democratic delegates to be declared the official nominee for the presidential election, Clinton said she would consider joining Obama as his Vice Presidential running mate. This from a woman who has done nothing but slander Obama throughout the campaign?
And then, on the very same day, she refused to step back, out of the spotlight, and admit that Obama had won the Democratic nomination. That really doesn’t make any sense, unless her ultimate goal is to undermine the Democratic party. Clinton has made it a consistent point to segregate her own voters from the rest of the party, and she continues to do it even now: yesterday, instead of supporting the political party that has supported her, she exclaimed, “I want the nearly 18 million people who voted for me to be respected and heard.”
Former White House special council Lanny Davis claims, “If [Obama] doesn’t have [Clinton as his VP], I think he can still win. With her on the ticket, he can’t be beat.”
I don’t think that could be farther from the truth. In fact, I will go one farther and say that, despite my yearning for change in the U.S. government, I will not vote Democrat if she is selected, especially after this campaign, and I don’t think I’m alone in that sentiment. Ironically, something of her obtuse nature seems to be beating down the “class” she used to emit as the nation’s First Lady. She now comes off as a crass, obstinate egoist, and it’s now clear that her need for political gain and her craving for the spotlight outweigh her ambition to do the right things for the right reasons.
Thanks a lot, Hillary, for wasting a ton of the nation’s time and money on your never-ending quest. Now, please: go home, leave us alone, and start bugging your staunt supporters for more money for the next election.
