Opinions requested by an antipodean

By jardinier ·
If it is not yet official, can we start with the assumption that Hillary will run with Obama. If they win government, how do you think this will affect America?

Incidentally the third (but far from insignificant) member of the COW will start withdrawing its troops from Iraq. I am not sure of the schedule but our PM Kevin Rudd has declared that they have done all they can do.

A Labor PM would never have sent Australian troops to Iraq in the first place.

Do you think a Democrat Government in the USA would have instigated the invasion?

Several questions, lots of opinions sought.

Invalid assumption

by NickNielsen In reply to Opinions requested by an ...

Hillary wants to be President, she's not stupid, and she knows history. Since Martin Van Buren in 1836, only one sitting VP has been elected President (the id10t-in-chief's father), and only one other has been elected on his own (Richard Nixon).

The situation you describe will remain hypothetical. The office of Vice-President of the United States is a rapid trip to obscurity, foreign funerals, and knowing your best chance of becoming President is the death of your running mate.

This blog post outlines all the reasons it won't happen. http://blogs.usatoday.com/oped/2008/06/why-veep-is-a-t.html

They do seem an unlikely pair but . .

by j-mart In reply to Invalid assumption

This being politics and politicians will all sell their soul for even a sniff of power, though only a very tiny possibility, in the world of politics nothing can be totaly discounted. Politicians, constantly in their quest for power, re-invent themselves in denial of their past selves, if they see it as an oportunity. She may be hoping Obama may get "run over by a bus or somthing" and she will get the job by default.

Actually,

and knowing your best chance of becoming President is the death of your running mate.

I believe she's evil enough to have thought of that, and he's evil enough to know that she's thought of that, which is why he won't pick her!

Apropos of what?

More likely a simple spelling error.

who would have started the Iraq war?

by john.a.wills In reply to Opinions requested by an ...

The most obvious U.S.-internal consequence of the Iraq war has been the shrinking of the pro-Palestine movement: people are now discussing the Iraq war instead of Zionism. So it's a reasonable guess that the Iraq war was started at Zionist behest, and the leadership of both major parties is obedient to Zionist whims. I have on my website www.mindspring.com/~johnawills an essay, written before the Iraq war started, about the pro-Palestine movement. What might have been now has been deferred by several years.
