Video: Hillary talks Obama: Would he get her vote if she doesn’t run?

posted at 12:20 am on December 21, 2006 by Ian


Senator Clinton was asked if she would support Obama if she was not going to run for President herself. Clinton gave the standard Clinton answer: “I’m going to wait and see how all this develops.” Meanwhile, the rest of the View girls, excluding Elizabeth, of course, gushed over Hillary and again when Obama’s name was mentioned. Rosie says he is a “fantastic man.”

Elizabeth: But if you weren’t going to take that leap and Senator Barack Obama decides he’s going to take that leap, would he get your vote?

Sen. Clinton: I’m going to wait and see how all this develops.

Rosie: He’s a fantastic man.

Sen. Clinton: He is a terrific guy and we’re going to have a lot of good people running in the democratic primary. I think that’s exciting. In most elections, it was kind of accepted, somebody on one side or the other was going to be the nominee and maybe the likely winner. This time that’s all thrown up. I think that’s good. I think everybody who wants to compete should compete. It’s a free country. That’s what we tell our children. If you study hard and you’re a good kid, maybe you could grow up and be president.

Rosie: Even if you’re a girl.

Joy: Or a black man.

Sen. Clinton: That’s right. Let’s throw open those doors and let everybody in.

Hillary and/or Obama? Shudder

It was nice to see Rosie so happy though.

This time that’s all thrown up. I think that’s good.

Certainly it makes me want to throw up, but I think Senator Clinton is merely trying to justify her own run for the presidency. This quote tells me she isn’t at all confident she can win. She has a lot of self-doubt.

Sen. Clinton: That’s right. Let’s throw open those doors and let everybody in.

Yes! Everybody! Including polarizing figures who have no chance of actually winning the White House! I’m pumped! Let’s go!!

A better question would be:

IF Obama decides to run AND you decide to run, will you have Obama ‘Fosterized’ without warning, or merely make him an ‘offer he can’t refuse’ to settle for Vice President?

I’m sure Hillibilly has the Clintonistas out making sure things start going her way, and watching the “O” for any slips – got to have some leverage for when things get tight.

the presidency needs to go to the most qualified individual, not the most diverse.. if obama or hillary is the most qualified, wonderful. if they’re not, dont expect special treatment, which is exactly what shes begging for on the view.

Do you think Rosie has a crush on Hillary?

And Hill, if so, here’s your chance to get back at Bill…

…Then again, he likes the plump ones.

Cripes! Put a raggedy jacket and a smudge of dirt on that man trapped in a woman’s body in the screen cap and she’d look like half the bag ladies in Times Square.

The Manchurian Candidate is definitely sticking in her craw. He has got to be. She wants the Presidency and she’ll not let anyone or anything get in her way after all the fancy footwork she’s done to get to her chance. The time is as right as it probably will ever be for a female democrat, in 2008. Maybe Obama Hussein al-Chicagoriti is all part of her plan to begin with.

I think even Bubba would pass on that one – that’s not to say he wouldn’t give it some consideration.

Rick on December 21, 2006 at 1:11 AM

Don’t NY’ers feel just a little used? Isn’t it totally obvious that Hillary just used the vacated Senator seat just as a stepping stone for the presidency? Are they that blind that they didn’t see her as an opportunistic carpetbagger?

stonemeister on December 21, 2006 at 1:15 AM

Rick,

He is a calculating guy. he has to weigh his love for rolls against her obnoxiousness.

Most of them are clear-eyed and love what they see.

She does look awful in the video and the caption. Someonething isn’t sitting well with her.

Entelechy on December 21, 2006 at 1:23 AM

Nice, I clicked the strike, instead of the quote – sorry stonemeister :(

Entelechy on December 21, 2006 at 1:24 AM

I’ve been absolutely convinced, since Hillary announced her NY Senate candidacy, that she would be the Dem nominee in ’08.

Obama is merely an “image consultant” if you will…shoved out there as a well-spoken pretty package to make the party look good…and appeal to the black community who recently have been shifting towards the Republican side.

If *gasp* Hillary were to become President, has there been any official term for what her husband would be called in lieu of “First Lady”? (I do ask this in all seriousness)

JetBoy on December 21, 2006 at 1:34 AM

No probelmo, I’ll get over it, Entelechy…eventually :)

First Scoundrel? First Philanderer? I’m just getting started on the less scandalous possibilities.

Ignoring your ‘all seriousness’, and being forgiven by stonemaster, here it goes:

Master of ceremonies cigars and drums
Master bimbo liaison relations (no need for Bettie Currie).

Both will then be called “Mr. and Mrs. President”. The world will be at peace. All will love the U.S. No more wars. Only love.

Entelechy on December 21, 2006 at 1:57 AM

Bill will just live in Koffi’s pad and spend his time consoling Rosie and her hot GF after they wind up on the streets,and in consoling I mean he will just be the Hildebeast’s fluffer of sorts until she comes home.

Hillary, if you want a women in the Whitehouse, why are YOU running?

Her husband, specifically ……. “Cummander in Chief”

if not you may end up in iraq…or worse be a senator.

The TV series Commander in Chief established that “First Gentleman” would be the title, although I’m not sure it would be particularly accurate.

Um hum. Whistling past the graveyard are we?

honora on December 21, 2006 at 11:45 AM

honora, the Sandy Berger thread, on the left side, awaits you.

Entelechy on December 21, 2006 at 2:38 PM

The Democratic party needs Obama to lock up that 9% of the black vote that they aren’t getting.

Bill C on December 21, 2006 at 5:51 PM

Thanks, Monster…yeah, that sounds about right…but yes, it really isn’t that appropriate. I was just wonderin’
