Clinton Predicts Nominee Before Convention

By Anne E. Kornblut
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is eyeing June as the end of the Democratic nominating process, and appears to be laying the groundwork for the eventual "healing" her advisers keep promising will follow the nominating contest, judging by a round of interviews she gave during her West Virginia victory lap on Wednesday.

Asked whether the intraparty fight will still be ongoing at the convention in August, Clinton said in an interview with Brian Williams on NBC's Nightly News: "I think we'll have a nominee. I really believe that. But again, we'll know a lot more on June 4." In another interview, with Wolf Blitzer on CNN's "Situation Room," Clinton said it would be a "terrible mistake" for Democrats to vote for Sen. John McCain over Sen. Barack Obama if she is not the nominee herself.

"Anybody who has ever voted for me or voted for Barack has much more in common in terms of what we want to see happen in our country and in the world with the other than they do with John McCain," Clinton said. "I'm going to work my heart out for whoever our nominee is -- obviously I'm still hoping to be that nominee, but I'm going to do everything I can to make sure that anyone who supported me ... understands what a grave error it would be not to vote for Sen. Obama."

Clinton also agreed with the assessment by Rep. Charlie Rangel that her comments about hard-working white people last week were the "dumbest thing" she could have said.

"He's probably right," Clinton said.

Clinton spent Wednesday meeting with various supporters and waverers -- committed superdelegates and undecided superdelegates on Capitol Hill, followed by fundraisers at her house. She is scheduled to fly to South Dakota and Oregon for campaign stops in the next few days.

Hillary knows very well now that there are no more states left in the primary with enough black people. That means she can pander to the white thighed people as much as she wants. All she cares is that extra vote she can get, regardless of whether her statements cause a division in the American people or not. She is the only candidate in this election, who has specifically made statements in effect to being white, being female, being a latino, being a 'hard working white', being a 'duck hunting gun owner'. Not only that she has the audacity to call a black man who just finished paying off his college student loans as 'elite'. When she is like that, I don't blame Bill for searching for a better soulmate in Monica.

The Clintons have become in essence the bottom scrapers. The subtlety of racism. Their closest surrogates and friends, most of them are racists. Let's take Ted Danson for example. He is one of the Clinton's closest friends. He has slept many times in the Lincoln bedroom as well as thrown fundraising parties for the Clintons. He once went to a black community dinner party painting his face black as well as painting his lips fat and pink. This is a caricature the whites used to draw in papers and books in the early 1900s to depict the blacks in a derogatory way. Well those are the types of friends the Clintons have. They probably had pajama parties in the Lincoln bedroom while Bill was president and compared their skin colors to see who is the pastiest of them all.

If Hillary has the 8 ball to predict that "there will be a nominee before convention", why didn't she use that 8 ball to predict her campaign's $20 million debt. She could have prevented that from happening. We don't need her to predict that there will a nominee before convention. We already know the nominee as Obama.

The article comments on the "White people" comment by Hillary:

"Clinton also agreed with the assessment by Rep. Charlie Rangel that her comments about hard-working white people last week were the "dumbest thing" she could have said.

"He's probably right," Clinton said."

RESPONSE: Hillary didn't make a 'dumb" mistake.

This comment was preplanned and calculated to appeal to voters in the only state with a US Senator (Byrd) who was a leader in the KKK.

Hillary and the Samson Option---

Hillary is not delusional, Hillary is just exercising the Samson Option.

In the Bible, Samson was strong but incredibly stupid. He was enslaved by the evil Philistines. He prayed that he would have enough strength to push down the building pillars and kill the Philistines with him.

Samson took the Philistines down with him, and Hillary intends to take the Dems down with her.

Many of the Hillary posters here have been lurking on these boards for some time. I have read your posts and like you, I do not forget.

Some posters here have spouted some of the venom on these boards, and are not without blame for the division in the party. (IowaTreasures i'm talking to YOU)

Some posters here feel that HRC had nothing to do with the division in the Democratic party. This was a two way street, people.

Some posters here have been pulling very hard for a candidate that was out of this race two months ago. People called for her to drop out when they saw the writing on the wall. - Hillary couldn't get enough votes to win - and yet she continued, further pushing the divide. You could even argue that the Obama campaign attempted to ignore Hillary, and NOT fuel further division.

Write her in. Waste your only chance to take part in the politics of our country. Sure, you may feel better, if completing futile tasks is your goal.

ANY Democrat for President.

I agree, democrats don't need to vote for Obama or McCain, okay to write in Hillary. Just as long as we get all of our house and senate democrats up there, it won't do any harm for McCain to be in the White House. We'll get our agenda pushed through the legislature and when McCain vetos anything, heck, we'll have more than enough in both house and senate to over-ride all of his expected vetoes. It's a win- win deal. We don't follow the media bandwagon and put another inexperienced politician in the White House and we control everything in Washington via complete control of the legislature. It's a win-win and we send a clear message to the DNC that we have had enough of their crap.

Oops. I meant to say John Edwards went on several talk shows and told Hillary she needs to get out of the race = on Mother's Day, very callous guy.

You know why Obama wanted Hillary to get out of the race before West Virginia. West Virginia blew Obama out with a 67 to 23 win for Hillary.

I think Kentucky will do the same thing. Hopefully enough Americans will get wise to Obama before he gets the nomination.

I will be the unhappiest camper of all if he gets the nomination. But, like I said, I will vote for Hillary one way or another, as a nominee, or as a protest vote, or as a write in vote, but I will vote for Hillary even if she gets on his ticket. I will not vote for Obama under any circumstances. He can't sweet talk me. gw.

Posted by: dyinglikeflies

I forgot he was on Kerry's ticket. They both came in second. Do you know what it means when somebody comes in second? They are the first losers.

My estimation of John Kerry went clear down to the floor when I heard he told Hillary to get out of the race - on Mother's Day. How callous can a guy get?

And, Edward's wife endorsed Hillary's health care plan. Edward's wife, Elizabeth is a remarkable woman. How could he, knowing Elizabeth has cancer and health care is a very important issue to her - how could John Edwards not have respected Elizabeth's endorsement of Hillary's health care plan. He didn't have to open his peep and endorse anyone, in deference to Elizabeth.

Some men are such stupid, arrogant dudes. John Edwards is thinking of John Edwards, only, perhaps he will be the V.P. Obama is going to have to do something to make Michelle happy. She is angry about having to share the spotlight with Hillary. gw.

I agree, RC. I will also vote for Hillary if she is the nominee, and if she isn't, I will vote for her anyway. A write-in vote carries as much weight as an X in a box next to the name of Barack Obama or John McCain.

Nothing can stop Hillary supporters from voting for her. I will not vote for Obama even if Hillary is on the ticket, I will still write in Hillary's name without Obama.

Obama and the elitist hierarchy needs to be stopped from this wierd nonsense they have been putting us through. It makes me feel like we are in a bad dream, to hear Obama and his tribe playing the race card so effectively that they can say anything they want to, but we can't.

Bill Clinton and Hillary have not said anything wrong. Obama, et al, are just very good at playing the "victim" and every one else the villain. I've called it "reverse dirty tricks" ever since Obama was in Iowa.

And, what's more - these people = Obama, the DNC, Pelosi, Howard Dean, Axelrod, etc., actually think we will forgive and forget how they have pulled the down and dirty style politics on Hillary.

We won't forget. We will not reconcile. We will not support Obama. I know millions upon millions feel just the way I do. This has been the most unfair election I have ever seen in my lifetime.

Barack Obama, the supposed uniter, has fractured this Democratic Party completely. I don't want to heal the party. I want to see everyone vote and all delegates seated. Obama has been crooked in the caucus states - I know, I live in Iowa where we had caucuses.

I want the corrupt political happenings in Texas investigated. I won't forgive and forget the way the Obama crowd strong armed the Clinton supporters there.

I will not fall in line behind the Pied Piper, Barack Obama. I do not trust him, I do not like him, he is one scary dude.

And the elitists are in my permanent "do not like" column. I can't believe how callous Obama supporters are, calling working class people "low class" "illiterate," "uninformed," as if we are not worthy of even being nice and polite to. Just say all the "bitter" things they want to, and then we are going to "fall in line" with Obama in November.

That just plain ain'ta gonna happen.

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama were afforded scholarships under the affirmative action rules - except that Barack Obama lied and said he was African American to be able to qualify to go to four different elite, private schools.

Barack Obama is almost half Arab, not Arican. Barack Obama has dual citizenship in Kenya and the U.S. Barack Obama, Sr., was a radical Arab, belonging to a terrorist group called the Kenyatta. His mother was a radical anti-American.

The Kenyan Government has recorded Barack Obama, Jr., as Arab American, not African American.

As I said, Barack was born to a radical anti-American woman. THat means he has listened to the rants and railings of the same kind of rhetoric that Rev. Wright spewed out for the past 20 years. gw. gw.

We need to vote for Obama.

He is the only man who can avert us from the path of WWIII, as he is the only candidate willing to open dialogue to the "enemies." Words can fight harder than guns, if the right words are spoken. Guns shouldn't be necessary for a "roadmap to peace"

Wars cant all be fought with only guns, as the Bush administration and the NRA would have you believe. We will never win the war in Iraq, the war on terror, and the war on drugs with the current ideals of using guns and bombs to kill everything.

How about using education:

1. Educate Iraqis on how to effectively and fairly govern themselves. Then, once an actual working government is set up, we need to declare Iraq an ally, and leave only a few thousand tactical troops to train the armies, and maintain order amidst any rebel attacks

2. Provide funding for foreign education systems to increase literacy rate (with a more literate population, less people will become radical suicide terrorists)

3. Legalize drugs (to a prescription style system, so drug users at least can KNOW what they are getting). Taxing them will provide funding for rehab clinics as well as foreign and domestic education. Educating citizens on the effects of drugs will ultimately minimize the use (demand) of truly "dangerous drugs". Legalization will also cause drugs like cocaine and heroin to not be worth more than gold anymore, so economical farmers will stop growing so many drugs, and alternatively grow food (at its current high prices), solving the worldwide food crisis.

4. Use guns and bombs only when necessary, for defense, or crippling precision retaliation. And finally find, imprison, and question Osama bin Laden, to learn about Al Quaeda, and how to destroy it. (Then maybe the ignorant morons will stop saying Barack Osama)

Obama is by far the most educated candidate, and the most likely to improve education in America and worldwide. And is not blindly attached to the use of guns to solve everything.

It is important to have a president who will provide change towards peace and education, not war and ignorance.

Obama will be that president.

As a fair and practical Obama supporter I can say I was impressed with her interview today. I even heard acknowledgement of wrong doing on the racist comments and a semi-apology. From her..I'll take that - that was a big step. Given her track record, I'm reluctant to belive anything that comes out of her mouth..but today I really felt she was being sincere. As hard as it is for me to compliment her, I must say..she was pretty decent and likeable today. Not enough to change my vote..but I do hate her a little less.

I read the "MUST READ ARTICLE" blondshag and can only think of one thing to say...yawwwwwwn. There is nothing of significance whatsoever.

This contest is over. I'm sorry your choice for nominee barely lost but the fact is, she did. She had the biggest war chest, initial voter support, and the Clinton name and she blew it by mismanaging her campaign and misjudging the Democratic voters. I feel we dodged a bullet because if she cannot manage a campaign properly, she definitely cannot manage the White House.

That being said, Obama supporters need to be good sports and give Hillary her due. She threw everything she had into this campaign and the kitchen sink at Obama. This will prepare him for November. You also need to remember that Obama needs Hillary's supporters come November if we are to take back the White House and recoup our international standing.

Obama and Clinton line up almost identically on every major issue so those of you who support one but say they won't vote for the other come November are not looking at the big picture. So all Obama and Hillary supporters need to get their heads out of their asses and respect the fact that we actually had two great candidates running at the same time.

A VOTE FOR MCCAIN IS A VOTE FOR MORE OF THE SAME!!!!

The point is not that poor white Americans are voting for Hillary and that both black and educated voters are voting for Obama. Hillary's statement was wrong for a couple of reasons. One, Hillary and her campaign use the phrase hard working Americans as a code word for white Americans. Just say working poor white Americans if that is what you mean. Others are hard working as well. Black Americans vote overwhelmingly for Obama. There is no shame in stating this. The issue is when her people imply that the white voters will not vote for Obama. Is seems like she is saying that her set of voters are more important in the general election. She is saying that his set of voters would eventually come around to her but her voters may not come around to him. Or at least, that is my interpretation.

Anyway, did she quit yet?

Hillary even now is spending megabucks she has not got to knee-cap Obama. Even with the unforgiving numbers, she is trying to buy the nomination because she believes she can count on Obama to pay off these debts in the end. Why should his campaign pay off the debts she has accumulated in smearing him, tearing him down, dividing the nation with her race and gender cards, her sniper fire lies, her insane Lady Macbeth violence? Americans do not reward malicious poltiticians who after all will not even go on to support him but will do everything to destroy his chances so she can run again in 2012. The super-delegates MUST stop her NOW!

"You know" if she was just really like her interviews today (and her closing at the TX debate) this would be a different story. Alas, I don't trust a Clinton as far as I can spit.

Edwards is an self-serving hypocrite. Its no wonder he supported Obama. Another buisnessman who pretends to be for the underdog while they make money off them.
Seems the Obama camp feels a little shaky after Hillarys big win and their trying to get the Supers to swing it for OB before the race is over. Wasnt it the Obama camp that said Supers should support the voters? Why are they trying to puch things one way or another before THE VOTERS are done.
Hillary is a solid candidate, Obama is not. Hes sloppy and inexperienced and like Bush he seems to like playing sports, taking days off and going on vacation alot. Can anyone spell PUPPET?
Clinton, at least has worked hard herself. Obama, on the other hand has got a free glamour pass from the media.

Stop and compare use of "hard-working
white Americans" voting for Sen. Clinton
and Black Americans voting enmass for
Sen. Obama. Denigarating one group of
voters and elevating another as though
their education and status merits more
because they voted for Obama. The white
media and the "old-boy Washington network"
is determined Sen. Clinton will lose.

How can Hillary lose? She has the vote of even dead people. Her tale of the dying woman in hospice who voted for her just before she died and thus somehow made a legacy for herself was tasteless even by Clintonian standards.

Barack Obama is getting hit by John McCain, Joe Liberman, Mitt Romney and every other republican interested in the VP spot
And, then there's Hillary

Hopefully, John Edwards will get off fence
The one ething you ahve to say about Barack is that the man is tough
He has to be. Basically, he's taking on two parties at the same time
Tag team Hillary and John against Barack

And, guess who's winning
Look at the polls

JakeD - They'll do a remake of the Wizard of Oz with 'Bama & Hil skipping arm in arm down a yellow brick road lined on one side by blue collared white folk and college kids and African-Americans on the other side. Would be nice to see them all have swords to cross over them to give a little military drama, but that could be pushing it. Oh yes, they will be handing out Blue Chip stamps to make up for Hil's agreement to back off the gas tax relief. Touching scene, no?

Edwards' endorsement of Obama will carry as much weight as his presence on Kerry's ticket did.
Ooops.

I wonder how Obamaniacs are going to react to The One raising funds for her?

Posted by: JakeD | May 14, 2008 5:53 PM

It's the other way around. This money is being raised for the DNC for the GE. Since Obama will be the one using the money, not Hillary - Hillary is in fact raising money for Obama to win the GE. This money is not for the primary or their debts.

MsJoanne:

What "house directives" are you referring to? Are you also aware that the first President to issue a signing statement was James Monroe? And, William JEFFERSON Clinton used "signing statements" too. "Executive Orders" are even more prevalent.

What I would like more than an endorsement or healing or anything is for our elected officials to hold the current administration accountable.

This 600 lb gorilla is still going to be there when the next president takes over (assuming Bush doesn't call martial law). Give me assurances - whomever the candidates will be - that they will rescind all the outageous signing statements, executive orders, and house directives that Bush put into place.

America was not founded on one single power. That is the anti reason our country came to be!

Many Bush officials have been charged with war crimes. Is this what we want our country to be in the eyes of the world? Is this the country we ARE? We need to take our country back so this never happens again!

Obama and Clinton...will you rescind all these bogus powers?

I'm glad she apologized for the "hard-working Americans, white Americans" gaffe. (I think it's fair to read what she said here as apologizing.) That was a good thing for her to do.
