In the recent days, United States Democratic co-frontrunner Hillary Clinton had implied twice of a possible “Clinton-Obama” ticket. Though, Clinton explains that the brief talk had taken a life and personality of its own.
Her husband, former United States President Bill Clinton said that a Clinton-Obama ticket would be “unbeatable.”
However, the talks about a ticket had drawn sharp criticism from Democratic co-frontrunner Barack Obama. Obama noted that he still has a lead over Clinton in delegates. He questioned Clinton by asking what made her think he’d be a good vice-president if she says that he is not ready to be president. In Mississippi, Obama said to voters that they can only vote for one or the other.
NBA hall of famers Magic Johnson and Charles Barkley weeks ago had talked about their ideal ticket. Johnson said that he would like to see an Obama-Clinton ticket while Barkley said he would like to see a Clinton-Obama ticket.
However, not everybody was enthusiastic about the notion. Democratic House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi of California looks to first to publicly place her skepticism on the notion.
“I think that ticket either way is impossible,” Pelosi explained to a news reporter. She would recall on what Clinton said about GOP nominee John McCain doing a much better job as commander-in-chief than Obama.
To Pelosi, that rules out the possibility of such a joint ticket.
So far, Pelosi has remained neutral as one of the uncommitted 800 superdelegates. However, weeks before, Pelosi said that there will be a nominee picked before the Democratic National Convention this coming August in Denver, Colorado.
Pelosi said that all of the remaining uncommitted superdelegates cannot afford to remain on the fence any longer.
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, a former Democratic hopeful said that it cannot wait until the DNC to find a nominee.
