Clinton, Obama hold secret meeting

June 6, 2008

Advertisement

— Hillary Rodham Clinton and likely Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama met privately Thursday night to talk about uniting the Democratic Party, an Obama spokesman said.

"Senator Obama and Senator Clinton did have occasion to meet this evening," said Robert Gibbs. "It's the end of the primary process. They wanted to talk about bringing these campaigns together in unity."

Gibbs would not say where the former rivals met, except that it was not at Clinton's home in Washington, as had been widely reported. He also declined to comment on their topics of discussion, including the possibility of Obama inviting Clinton to become his running mate.

Clinton's campaign also was not commenting.

Reporters traveling with Obama sensed something might be happening between the pair when they arrived at Dulles International Airport after an event in Northern Virginia and Obama was not aboard the airplane.

According to delegate voting, obama would have won along time ago, making this more of an "I told you so" type of meeting. Instead, this little cat and mouse game was allowed to continue way too long.Do you know how much valued time was spent covering the "cam-pain to no where"? Do you know how many crimes went unreported on my local news? All for the sake of an endless pointless race to the starting line

"Obama and Clinton are likely discussing how the make this country into a socialist nation and make people more dependent on the government, thus providing job security for themselves."Who has been presiding over the largest US government ever? Need a hint? Sorry, your post is ignorant, foolish, and devoid of fact.

They were just having their weekly liberal meeting. Appletinis, tofu caviar, and a ouji board to contact k. marx for guidance.

Hillary should run as a third party candidate--I'll let you guys name the party--and screw Obama like Nader did Al Gore. Then there would be some good name calling.

"Arab Back Mao"... this is incontroverible evidence that he is a Mao backer and wants to turn America into a communistic regime. I mean, do you need any more proof than that!

Bozo's definition of lying is evidently when you repeat misinformation given to you by others. (Powell)By that definition, Bozo himself is a huge lying machine.

Obama and Clinton are likely discussing how the make this country into a socialist nation and make people more dependent on the government, thus providing job security for themselves. After all people are too stupid to know how to spend their own money and think for themselves. The government should definitely take the heavy burden of so many choices away from the unitelligent American populace.

Was reading that the 18-24 voting block the Dems are ever-so-proud-of, said that Obama's race was an asset and that would make them tend to vote for him. Sounds a bit racist to me---but that's probably my rural ignorance rearing it's ugly head again.

Unless you are just trying to be small minded and don't like other people to speak their own opinions. Next time please have a purpose to your post. My opinion is "valid" in a country of free speech. Sorry to let you in on that secret.

nobody in their right mind would want to be president after right after bush. whoever wins it is basically gonna be the clean-up person and will bear the brunt of fixing bush's 8 years of wreckage. the only reason mccain and hillary want the job is because theyre both getting too old to wait any longer and obama wants it because he's a moron. whoever wins will be a one-hit-wonder and in 2012 better choices for candidates will come out for the job.

"If one follows Colin Powells 13 rules to lead your life, would that be a person of "good" character."Do those 13 rules include lying to the UN and the American people about Iraqi WMD? Or taking part in the Iran-Contra coverup?

They're trying to find a way to break the law and pay off the loans made by Clinton to her campaign...Probably amounts to 'paying her off' so she quits.And/or finding another way to misuse funds in order to pay her loan by Obama supporters...

I wonder what MLK meant when he used the word "character"?What attributes makes for "character".If one follows Colin Powells 13 rules to lead your life, would that be a person of "good" character.http://thesavvysister.blogspot.com/2008/01/general-colin-powells-13-rules-to-live.htmlMLK didn't define character he just said to be judged "by the content of their character".

There are several candidates with (good) character, but none of them will win. But regardless of who wins, we'll see a marked improvement over the previous 8 years.

It's difficult this go around to find someone with character. Wouldn't you say?

"Liberals are more concerned with the sex and race of a President instead of character."Ergo, you are a liberal, barry.

Liberals are more concerned with the sex and race of a President instead of character.You all should revisit MLK writings."I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character".

"If it was a secret meeting, how come we know about it?I think a "private" meeting is a more accurate description."Since when has the press ever been accurate? Secret meeting sells more papers.

Remember they always have "hope" preceding their claim of "change".As a witness to their loong 17 month racialist campaign against one another, yes.Obama "clinging to their religion and guns" Geraldine "only because he is black"
