It's been 24 hours since we saw Barack Obama win in Iowa!!
Although I believe Edwards/Obama would be a strong, winning ticket,(and then Obama could win handily for Prez, after serving as v.p. for Edwards, for two terms),I think if Obama can keep the momentum going, he could-- inexperienced though he may be-- get the nomination for Prez., and win!!....but please, for the love of God, do NOT choose Hillary as your running-mate!
Why do I dislike her so much?
She's definitely owned by the lobbyists--she's accepted more money from lobbyists than ALL OTHER CANDIDATES(Democrat AND Republican!combined)
Her views on the war in Iraq are indistinguishable from George W.
I think the extreme-right loves to "hate" on her, because they actually WANT her on the Dems' ticket. WHY? Because she'd be easy to defeat, and even if she somehow won, the extreme-right STILL wins, because she owes corporate America, and she would vote WITH the war-machine, not against it....
I probably don't have to worry about Hillary getting in--she would not accept a vice-president slot, anyway!
ON TO PO-BIZ:
