If Hillary Was a Republican (and We Were, Too) She Would Be the Nominee

Sometimes I can’t believe what I read. Sometimes the people I admire (or once did) are so lame in the words that they put together that I envision an incredible, an almost Clive Barker world. Here is what Bill Clinton said today. And make no mistake this is not a Bill Clinton mis-speakism again, Hillary Clinton is saying the exact same thing:

“‘If we were under the Republican system, which is more like the Electoral College, she'd have a 300 delegate lead here,’ Clinton told the Washington Post. ‘I mean, Senator McCain is already the nominee because they chose a system to produce that result, and we don't have a nominee here, because the Democrats chose a system that prevents that result.’”
I never would have thought that I would ever hear a Clinton, let alone two, wish that they were Republicans. If the Republican system of nomination appeals to the Clintons, then maybe their political affiliations need to be altered. What with their combined politics of 11th hour fear attacks on a fellow Democrat, maybe it’s time to make the move.

Maybe it’s time for Hillary Clinton to reconcile herself with her former Republican opponents. Their rules, obviously, are superior to her own party’s rules. Their rules get the job done after all.

Makes sense to me.

I hear that John McCain is still looking for a vice-president. This might be Hillary’s best chance. The old man can’t last too much longer after all. He’s starting to dodder and forget. Maybe they can work a mental competency thing.

Maybe Hillary Clinton will be the next, and first, Republican woman President.

Whatever the cost, right?

If Obama had Clinton's experience, this primary would be over.

That sounds clever and funny but it really makes no sense at all.

Coulda been worse--Bill could have called for single-list elections like they have in dictatorships. If you think about it this is a much more democratic system in which EVERYONE votes for the winner--or else.
