Hillary says she's staying in the race. I think this is an ill move in the world of politics, but it's not entirely her fault that I'm so annoyed by this. It's also really bothersome to me that the Superdelegates won't choose their candidates and choose a candidate to compete for the Democratic party. The level of frustration is high for two reasons:

The first one is lesser, but by no means unimportant:
  • The Super delegates are likely to lean with the majority, giving Obama victory! And you guys know how much I love and respect that man.
The second one is huge, and it's not only frustrating but embarrassing:
  • By continuing to have Hillary and Obama compete against each other, we are dividing ourselves. Republicans will find us in a much more conquerable state if we've already split ourselves as a party. By smearing the personal attributes of our candidates, we are giving McCain fuel to burn whichever candidate is ultimately decided upon by the Democratic party. The issues will seem to matter less, because everything that is heard about the Democrats is in the form of a personal attack. We won't have a chance to repair the world if we cannot behave civilly and in the interest of the causes we claim to hold so dear. At this point I see NO reason to wait for the convention, and hate to see a political platform that claims it longs for peace on earth being so hostile and caustic.

It's good to see that Obama is open to Hillary as VP. I think that will help, but didn't he previously say otherwise?

He didn't say otherwise -- What had happened was...

Several months ago, maybe a little bit after Super Tuesday, Hillary said during a Q&A session that she wanted Obama to be her VP.

Obama responded in saying something to the effect of " what sort of place is this where the person in 2nd place can offer the vice presidency to the person in first place"

As far as I know he didn't say anything about not being open to Hillary as VP. I didn't think he had addressed it. I didn't hear that he WAS open to it either. News source?


Much like pineapples, I am hardcore.
