Gotta Keep ‘Em Separated

Posted by Mike on January 27, 2008

Despite the Iowa caucuses, and the South Carolina primary, and the recent string of high-profile endorsements, I still believe that She Who Must Not Be Named will win the Democrat nomination. If this unfortunate event occurs, the witch will have no choice but select Barack Obama as her running mate. Mark Levin over at the Corner has already hinted at the reason why.

Democrat candidates for President routinely capture about 90 percent of the black vote, regardless of whether they win or lose. For this reason, Democrats often have trouble when black voter is lower than normal. Given the haphazard way SWMNBN and her husband have handled the race issue in this campaign, it is not difficult to foresee the same black voters who were rightly excited about the possibility of the first black President (sorry Bill) shunning the candidate who used questionable tactics against that candidate, especially if she compounds the problem by taking a pass on Obama when it comes time to fill the bottom of the ticket. On the other hand, selecting Obama would probably unify their party and energize one of its key demographics.

It would be act of colossal political stupidity for SWMNBN to select anyone other than Barack Obama as her running mate. Whether Obama would accept the nod after being the treated the way he has in the past month or so is another matter. Hopefully the former First Family’s tactics vis-a-vis Obama will keep ’em separated.
