HammRadio Today: 3/10/2008 -- <br>When Primaries Didn't Matter

My Buddy Wayne likes to bug me about elections. No matter which one. His greatest work was during the 2000 Election and the ensuing Hanging Chad crisis. There was nothing more annoying than hearing vote counts every 30 minutes from Florida.

?

This year, he is a supreme Obama supporter. I'm not entirely sure why. But mostly, it's because he's Anti-Hillary. I'm not anti-hillary. I don't think she's very likable. And she seems to be a poor campaigner, especially in comparison to her husband. And certainly in comparison to Obama. But the ability to campaign, shouldn't move me one way or the other right? Wrong. It's important in the primary season, not necessarily to pick the guy or gal you want in office, but also to pick the candidate BEST suited to victory in November. Electibility.

?

So who's more electible? It's gotta be Obama right? I mean the results are there. And the national polling suggests that he dominates with the Independent swing voters. And the anti-Obama "Hussein" propoganda routine should disipate by the time the Convention is over. Wayne asked me, if the reason why I wasn't an Obama fan, was because I believed those rumors and thought Barry was a "Manchurian Candidate"? I told him, "You know who the real 'Manchurian Candidate' is? John McCain. How do we know he wasn't brainwashed while in capitivity by communists. We can at least prove that! And I'm pretty sure McCain's mother used to solve crimes based on her novels."

?

You know there was a time when Primaries didnt' seem to matter. The JFK interview from Meet the Press indicated that primaries were a choice. And that it was the conventions that made the difference. It prevented the "Favored Son" status, that seemed to muck up the works. BUT... Made for great television. We might need that again. I'm thinking this convention is going to do that. Why not??? A nice battle for the Clinton-Obama nomination. A groundswell of votes for VP. It would be historic!!!

Clinton-Obama Ticket, Wait a Minute, Not So Fast

Hey wait a minute, I might not want to be VP And don't forget, if you are a white president with a black VEEP. Please see Chris Rock's routine. Okay, I couldn't find that routine. But you know what I'm talking about. Obama thinks it might be a little presumptuous for the 2nd place candidate to suggest that the 1st place candidate take the backset. Certainly, that might be true. But it's always about hedging bets. People know, Obama is not bringing Clinton to the White House. But... if you can guarantee by voting for Hillary Clinton, you can bring Bill Clinton AND Obama. Well hot diggity dog.... you might have something to get excited about. Personally, who's going to be excited about Horation Sanz coming back to Saturday Night Live full time. (Which is what you would need to do if Bill Richardson gets the gig.)

?

Clinton And Rendell perfect together? Rendell is stumping hard for Mrs. Clinton. And that may help her in Philly. Nutter's on her side too. Although, if somehow Obama shows up in PA in a Franco Harris jersey, it's going to be curtains for her.

?

Obama charges for campaign posters! But don't worry I've solved the problem. You could always make your own that make Obama look like a Futuristic Fascist leader. Seriously, how different is that picture, than this one.Big

?

The other poster that's going around is a little creepier. You know if you make his face read, white and blue, people won't know he's black! But seriously, doesn't that seem creepy to you. I mean, I don't know if I want to vote for anyone who's campaign posters are Andy Warhol prints. I mean it, stop it with the Andy Warhol already. It's creeping me out.
