Last week I had a dream, and yes I'm being literal here. For some reason I dreamed that Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton had been having secret meetings about joining together with Hillary taking on the role of VP. I've found that if I sit down many times I am able to dissect my dreams into the stuff that leaks over from random daily things (news, shows, etc.) and what parts of my dreams show me things my brain has/does work on below my level of awareness. When I thought about what that part of the dream meant I was able to see how my brain "created" that dream.
You see, I think that by going after Obama so heavily lately McCain has left himself open to getting blindsided in two possible situations. First, if Hillary got the Dem's nomination then he would have wasted a lot of energy going after Obama. 'Course I didn't believe Hillary was going to get nomination. If she had I would have been stunned. Second, if Hillary took the VP spot then Obama would not only have regular access to her experience he'd also have access to her husband's. Sure, he could have tried to do so anyway but if Hillary was in the VP spot it would be much more of a guarantee that their experience was both available and offered.
Now, please keep in mind that the current rumors that are going on regarding Hillary possibly taking the VP place on the Dem's card is not something I'm "for" or "against" as I am not a Democrat. But, I do think that such a ticket could prove to be very problematic for McCain. I think the Republicans in general have been hoping for a division to come out of the Democrat's primary race, and now I'm wondering if on some level the Democrats didn't put on more of a show than what was really going on. A Democratic primary race that ends up going the full run? That's going to get a lot of people involved and revved up that feel as though they tend to get passed over in times like this. Get people passionate and aligned behind each candidate and then put them together? Quite the combination as far as getting their whole party pulled together. Of course, that only works if the people "behind" Hillary are willing to accept having her as VP if she is offered/accepts that spot.
So, if an Obama n Clinton ticket does come from the Democrats then things should prove very interesting.
