With tongue planted firmly against my right cheek, (which other cheek would I use?), I would like to forward the following series of scenarios. Just as the Democratic Party begins its “Sham-a-lama (for) ding dongs” in Denver, I propose that John McCain publicly ask Hillary Rodham Clinton to be his choice for Vice President before the Republican convention in Minneapolis, preferably on the last night of the Democratic charade. Please do not ask me if I have lost my mind. Here is what I see transpiring were that to take place.
Regardless of the media’s coverage or lack there of, the Hillary supporters have to feel completely abandoned and humiliated. When the Obama “whip squads”, authorized and approved of by Hillary herself, take to the floor in Denver, that should be the last straw. The Hillary supporters probably feel about as disenchanted as the blacks should feel after decades of the liberal “affirmative action condescension” among other things, but for reasons unknown, the vast majority of blacks are still clinging to their Democratic enablers. Before the decades slip by, it could be time to transform the women of America into a political force that could rival what the “Solid South” used to be, this time for the Republican Party.
Eighteen million. Hillary garnered eighteen million votes in the primary. What percentage of them will mindlessly follow the liberal leadership and what percentage of them has become genuinely “undecided” due to the “manhandling” of their candidate? There has to be a number of Hillary supporters who have probably become involved in the political arena because of what Hillary “represents” to them. The liberals have just told them, “No women or their supporters allowed.” No matter what the liberal caliphate does during their Hajj in Denver, this will not satisfy those who constantly demand “more” as all splinter groups weaned upon the “Democratic separatist movement” invariably do.
The move guarantees that the “bipartisan/reach across the aisle” hokum label can never be used by the Obamazombies who reflexively point to the miniscule number of bills that he has sponsored during his almost four year internship in the Senate. McCain can just point to Hillary and say, “Bipartisan? Try exclusionary. Try discriminatory”
Don’t worry, she won’t take the offer. She just CAN’T take the offer. That is the beauty of it. She would have to leave her seat in the Senate, she would have to “back out” of her “arrangement” with Obama and she would have to literally be viewed as a “Republicrat” (like her sisters Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins..) so she would NEVER accept. She would have to sign on to the Republican platform and her Democratic career would forever be over. As the Vice President, all that she would do is attend some funerals and bang the gavel once in a while in the Senate. That is no where near enough power for her to consider taking the risk of running with a Republican. The symbolic nature of “the offer” from the McCain standpoint is all that he needs.
The media would wet themselves. She would resume the mantle of “media darling” and she would then be cast as “The Comeback Kid” just as Bill was. Her supporters would again be energized and the first thing that will cross their minds is that Senator “O’Change” went back to the old “White Male Elitist” club to find his Vice-President. The Obama people will have no choice but to begin spinning faster than a centrifuge. Hillary’s potential effectiveness as an Obama campaigner from that point forward will be null and void. They won’t call her and she won’t ask them. The Democrats will forever look at her sideways thinking that this is a “deal” that SHE negotiated. Her political career, even in the state of New York, where they will vote for anyone, will be over. Her eighteen million supporters will begin taking an altogether different look at John McCain. Win, win, and win.
McCain can then make heavy weather of the choice of Hillary as his running mate. She will then decline. If she does so gracefully, McCain will benefit all the more. If she does so gracelessly, (“This is nothing more than a campaign stunt by a desperate John McCain..”, etc.) she further sullies her future political image and the sensible that supported her will disappear from her side faster than $harpton does when the dinner check arrives.. Remember, the Hillary supporters have by now already given up on the Democrats as “hopeless misogynists”, any redaction or recanting by Hillary, claiming that Obama is somehow “fair to women”, again flies back into her face as it looks as though it was all just a “power grab” for her and not about the “unfairness” of it all..
McCain can then effortlessly turn to another Republican female candidate and the deed is done. About the biggest “down side” to the scenario is that McCain would almost HAVE to pick a female VP, unless the candidate herself publicly says that she does not want to be the Vice President. “Down side” in this case means that normally, it is the liberals who are all about limiting choices and being exclusionary. McCain can then hold any number of “Women’s Forums” and town hall meetings just to ask for their advice and approval, thus laying claim to being genuinely “inclusive”.
Meanwhile, Obama, the man Biden said, “was not ready” during the debates, (Note to candidates who are considering running for any office in the foreseeable future: Do NOT choose your running mate from the field of candidates who ran in the primaries. You automatically give the opposition belts of pre loaded ammunition..) has to figure out how to acquire multiple millions of “undecided” voters to make up for the loss of the nations women. This then exacerbates his phony “Centrist Deception” which infuriates the unsanitary base of the liberal left. His apologies and fawning to the extreme left can then be used by McCain to correctly portray Obama as an ultra liberal. Obama will need Dramamine when it is all said and done and he can either join the last liberal loser back in the Senate or he can start working on his documentary in the category of “Best Science Fiction Fallacy” as he goes in search of his undeserved Oscar.
How is that for a “bounce” going into the Republican convention…
