Barack Hussein Obama – “Kingmaker”

barack-obama.jpg There is something to be said about saying something early or maybe even first.  If you are right you have such insight, but if you are wrong well then you are just plain WRONG.  But at the risk of being WRONG I will venture out here a bit and offer a scenario that I believe has a high probability of coming to fruition.

First, as you have most likely already read, Al Gore is clandestinely forming a campaign management team.  I think he is going to run.  I read one blogger say sometime ago that once you have run for President that nothing else quite measures up.  So lets say that this now makes three contenders in the Democratic Presidential sweepstakes (Barack Obama, H. Clinton and Algore).  You see I think that Edwards, Richardson and any of the others (announced and unannounced) are merely pretenders not contenders and that all of these (except Edwards) may be in the race to balance some kind of ticket as a Vice Presidential selection.

This is a vain and mistaken assessment on their part.  I am not sure whether it will be Hillary or Al, but to me it is increasing likely that the VP nominee will be Barack Obama.  Why?  Because he will emerge as the kingmaker (in my opinion).  That is to say that the delegate count will be split largely between the 3 contenders with a few to the pretenders but with no single candidate having enough to win a first ballot victory at the Democratic National Convention during the Summer of 2008.  The back room dealing will put Obama in the power position of not taking the nomination but becoming the kingmaker (at a cost) and I think we will see Obama on the ticket somewhere and here are my probabilities.  Obama on the top of the ticket 10%,  Obama Veep to Hillary 40%, Obama Veep to Gore 50%.  We’ll see, stay tuned……….

P.S. This would definitely sink a Hillary candidacy in my opinion and could likely “Inconveniently” sink the “Truth” bandwagon of Algore.

    interesting projections. on both sides of the party lines it looks to be an interesting race to say the very least. so you think if it is Gore/Obama that they will lose? I don’t know. They are both pretty popular right now. Will be ineteresting to see how we run.
    I do think a Hillary/ obama ticket would prove to be a loss. Just not sure on Gore/obama…..

    Not sure about Gore/Obama but though the country may be ready for a black Preident and/or female (i.e. Condoleeza) I don’t think they are ready for a candidate that hid is madrassa background, he is in my opinion the Manchurian Candidate…….

    yes i do believe he is the manchurian. I also feel that having a female and black ticket would be pushing it.

    I worry about this coming election for many reasons. Primarily, I have no clue where Obama stands on any issue aside from the fact that he supports almost all and any forms of abortion at anytime- including allowing infants born alive during a botched abortion to starve to death.

    This guy has some serious hidden positions that he covers up with bromides, cliches, old saws, and feel good proverbs. Listen to one of his speeches. You’ll find almost no hard stances, just annoying empty feel good rhetoric.

    black, white, yellow, red, male, female…i’d vote for any that actually stood for and defended the TRUTH!

    do the republicans have any chance of retaining the presidency really….?? i have just assumed that whatever democrat makes the final cut will beat out any rep. but i guess that’s silly of me. because i see the logic of someone like rudy running…he can pick up the moderate dem’s that can’t deal with electing a black or woman president.

    oh i will stay tuned to further predicitons.

    Hi s,

    Since I have all of the candidates you mention on my potential antiChrist list, I am awaiting the primary results with some keen anticipation. Of course, we can’t just look at who wins, but must, in the event of a Democrat winning the top office, wait and see if there is a sudden death that puts the VP in the Oval Office. Interesting times indeed!

    Hi Grit,

    I wouldn’t want to be at the head of the ticket with any of the 3 (the Manchurian, the HilderBEAST or algore) as my veep and looming for a promotion.

    Hi s,

    Good point, and one that makes me think I should add Bill to the AC list. He did, after all, survive 8 years of Gore wishing him dead. I’ll have to ponder the implications of this.

    scary times approaching in deed. I can only hope that the infighting amongst the dems will allow a strong, unified republican campaign to retain the presidency.

    Yeah, we can hope, but in the end it (the election) will turn on the war on Terror in Iraq and elswhere. The Dems know that, since they can’t own victory the only place they can go is defeat and they are in position to try and help insure that outcome. [unless Joe Liberman re-sets the table]
