Madam Speaker may be a lot of things I don't like, but when it comes to the bad blood between the HRC and Obama camps these days, she's no dummy:
Finally, somebody with enough gumption to admit what only rapid Hillary supporters refuse to acknowledge: Hillary going negative on Barack Obama is wrecking havoc on the Democratic party so much so that Hillary's Black support has eroded significantly. Yet, personally, I don't believe that its racism so much as egotism that makes the Clinton's so polarizing. Indeed, the "Obama for VP" tactic was so arrogant and condescending that you just know that it was more Billary than their campaign that tried to pull off that lame stunt. I'm glad that Pelosi was able to see that.
(CNN) — A so-called "dream ticket" scenario - the idea that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama could join forces this fall — may have gripped the imaginations of Democrats nationwide - but you can list House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a skeptic.
"I think that ticket either way is impossible," Pelosi told a New England Cable News reporter Tuesday, pointing to comments from Clinton and her campaign that implied Republican John McCain would make a better commander-in-chief than Obama.
"I think that the Clinton administration has fairly ruled that out by proclaiming that Senator McCain would be a better commander-in-Chief than Obama," she said.
She spoke bluntly about her view that a joint ticket was not in the cards, she said, because "I wanted to be sure I didn't leave any ambiguity."
