BACK SEAT DRIVER: THE TOUGH DECISION FOR DEMOCRATIC VICE PRESIDENT BY BARACK OBAMA AND HIS CONSULTANTS

The tables have turned.  The history books have not yet been written,  but the printers and computers are buzzing and very HOT! 

Hillary Clinton  has not broken down and  conceded the Democratic run for the President of the United States.  However,  despite her concession or not….BARAK OBAMA HAS BECOME THE DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTCIAL CONTENDER WITH MCCAIN!!! 

So, in reality,  it has been a long  hard road.  However,  I do not believe in all of my 48 years as an American citizen,  that I have witnessed such a power struggle.  When Jessie Jackson had attempted to wage a bid on the White House,  it was met with a bit of respect,  but not the fury or the shock that Barak Obama has been met with.

  The Kennedy Family, has stood firm and strong behind Barak Obama.  The Kennedy Family are staunch supporters of Barack  Obama.  They must know something that many of those against Obama do not know.

  I would watch carefully,  and study the next few months.  The moves behind the scenes and the actions taken in public will determine how much the democrats will  be able to influence the Congress, and the Senate.  The voting of the SUPER DELEGATES  has determined that Barack Obama is the presidentcial choice of the democratic party.

So what is the problem for the other half of the democratic party?  Why would voters who state that they want WANT  CHANGE….WANT TO GO IN A NEW DIRECTION….WANT TO GET OUT OF IRAQ,  WANT HEALTHCARE,  WANT JOBS,  WANT CHANGE IN THE OIL CRISIS…..why would the HILLARY CLINTON supporters state that (based on  1010 WINS NEWS REPORTS OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS), that they will turn their votes over to John McCain?

  John McCain represents the same last 8 years of our current president’s thoughts and paradigms….so WHY wouild Hillary  Clinton’s supporters want to even suggest or  threaten to vote against their long fought for views of a NEW TOMORROW that Hillary Clinton has PREACHED, AND SERMONED, AND ADMONISHED HER voters and co-presidential candidates about? 

 Just because Obama Won….and Hillary did not win the intra-party Democratic vote; is that enough to make Hillary Clinton’s  supporters “jump ship”  and join the opposing party,  one which does not agree  with universal health care, and getting out of Iraq immediately,  etc., etc., etc.,?!!!  STRANGE….STRANGE….STRANGE….How an election could swing in the opposite direction midstream because the person that everyone wanted DID NOT GET THE NOMINATION FOR DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL  HOPEFUL! Is it  that the Hillary Clinton Supporters are  dismayed!????

  If that was done in the Obama Camp,   Obama would have been reprimanded by the Democratic Party for the behavior and negative counter statements of his staffers, and supporters.   To state that half of the democratic party will turn and become republican voters to prove a point….is “like throwing the baby out with the bath water….or cutting off your nose to spite your face!!”

  If  the supporters of Hillary Clinton really were concerned  about “CHANGING THE COURSE OF HISTORY AND THE COURSE OF AMERICA….WHY ARE THE SUPPORTERS TRYING TO DESTROY THE ONLY HOPE THAT THE DEMOCRATS have?

  Why are the Hillary Clinton supporters willing to run behind John McCain….someone who will continue business as usual?  STRANGE HUH?

It is so very sad  that the run for president by Barack Obama has struck a DEEP, DEEP cord in some HILLARY  Clinton Supporters.    There have been some people who   have been making very negative statements about Obama. 

 There was  recently   a  Hillary Clinton  Supporter  who was ranting  so much that it got on U-TUBE!  This woman stated that she would not vote for Obama because he does not meet the standard and that he would not be in the race for president if it was not for Hillary Clinton! 

 Wow!   It  would appear that the credit would go to Obama’s mother and father for giving birth to him. The credit should go to his grandparents, for raising him.

Some people in MIDDLE AMERICA do not have half as much education and world    experience as Barack Obama!!!!

How about that Barak was raised by  his white grandmother, and grandfather.  Although everyone is calling Barack Obama black, simply because his father was black,  he was not raised by any black people. 

 Barack Obama’s father was an educated man however….but he was not raised by his father at all.  So if you want to look at Obama as SO—SEPARATED FROM MIDDLE AMERICA….I think that we need to rethink about Barack Obama’s upbringing. 

 His  white mother was an anthropologist,  a very liberal person,  and free spirit who traveled the world and lived her life in persuit of helping others. 

 She could not instill more public service ideals than that.  Despite his grandparents, and his mother being white….it seems more comfortable to call Barack Obama black.  BLACK, BROWN,  YELLOW SKIN is simply that….SKIN,  SKIN,  SKIN.  Does a black cow give better milk than a white cow? 

 Is a black cat evil?  Does a pink flower smell better than a orange flower?

Society has created a border and a way of separating each other by a color line.  So again…..Why are the Hillary Clinton Supporters trying to separate from Obama  and run to John MCCain?   Just think about it for a minute. 

Oh,  I forgot….people are concerned about Obama’s experience,  right?  Well,  how many  foreign policy, crisis in military, economic meetings with former president Clinton, did  Ms. Clinton sit in on?

  I will not challange this topic too much.  There are others who are already doing a good job of that.

  What I really want to discuss right here and now…is why it would not be good for Hillary Clinton to be Vice President to Obama’s  President. 

A back seat driver does not have the right to turn the wheel of the car.  Although the combined effort of Hillary Clinton and former President Clinton would possibly be a good choice to aide in strenghening the new, president Barack Obama (((if elected)))….it could possibly turn into a battle of power and test of the “wills.” 

 If the new president has a former opponent as a vice president….it would appear that issues could arise behind close doors between the two.

  For example,  if the newly president elect Barack Obama has to make a decision about a foreign policy and it would affect our interacton with Russia….it might turn into a power struggle.

  Because, Hillary Clinton as vice president,  {who would not concede the night she was fully aware that she was closed out from being the presidential hopeful of the democratic party},  might then use the influence of her husband  former President Bill Clinton. 

Now,  the question would be,  does Hillary Clinton have the right to challenge the sitting president and his decisions on foreign policies, etc., in a pubic and political arena?

  Would she keep quiet if she does not agree with her president’s policies…or would she wage a full scale campaign if her views on how to procede on a specific policy by Obama were not in accord.

  Hillary  Clinton is a strong woman,  which  I admire for her candor, and her tenaciousness…however….it may not bode well for a new president.  Each president has to carve his or her own path and agenda for the country that he or she may lead.  However,  to have a formidable foe,  close at hand picking and judgeing  may not prove will for Obama. 

Could Hillary Clinton and Former President Clinton possibly drive the car from the back seat?  Could Vice President Hillary Clinton sit quietly while President Obama makes decisions that she does not agree with?  Would Vice President Clinton be able to maintain decorum and not challenge President Obama’s  goals,  or moves as president? 

I have never heard Mr. Cheny say anything that could be interperted as questioning or challenging President Bush.  Mr.  Cheny appears to always have been supportive.

Therefore it might be a general thought amongst more people than just myself, that Hillary  Clinton might be able to help get Obama elected…but may prove to be more of a staunch critic of Obama and his(((lack of experience))))  under the spotlight of former President Bill Clinton. 

Such powerful company to keep…  but the question is ….can Obama not be intimadated by such a powerful husband and wife team?

What do you think?

Charles Darwin Theories..UPDATE FOR MAY 15, 2008—POLAR BEAR HAS BEEN ADDED TO ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST…BREAKING NEWS FROM 1010 WINS ON 5/14/08!!!!..extinct animals return to grace us with their beauty! Now lets start working on saving our world for them and our children’s children!

 I am writing this as an update to this article.  My  heart is hurting for the POLAR BEAR!  It is a beautiful animal.  But its natural habit is being destroyed by GLOBAL WARMING!!!!!  1010 WINS radio stated it today.  That our nation… added it.  I feel dismay and fear for our world and its future.  AS I WATCHED MY NEW FAVORITE MOVIE….EVAN ALMIGHTY…..I WONDERED…..WHO WILL BUILD THE ARK FOR OUR ENDANGERED SPECIES??????  WHO WILL SAVE THE POLAR BEAR???? WHEN THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE WORLD BECOME TOO WARM AND THERE ARE NO MORE ICECAPS….WHO WILL SAVE US?????   Think about it and start talking and start writing to your congressman…..PLEASE!  OUr world depends on it….your future, and my future, and the CIRCLE OF LIFE depends on it!!!!

I love to blog about our natural resources and our animals that are part of our existence.  Even if you live in a high rise apartment building do you realize that our planet is governed by certain scientific rules that keep our living enviornment a living enviornment? 
We need the rain forests, and regular forests to get rid of carbon.  The less trees, and vegetation the less oxygen for us all.  Green cars,  hybrids are part of the solution. 
HOwever, the constant dregding of the ocean floor and the constant oil spills in the ocean from the barges that carry the exumed oil are killing the ocean animals and birds. 
 Look at these great pictures taken from Black Voices AOL  TITLED RARE ANIMAL SIGHTINGS….and think of what you can do. 
Even if you live in a concrete jungle….think what role you can play to save the green tree jungle for  future generations of animals and humanbeings.

Lungless Frog; reported April 9

THIS FROG BREATHES THROUGH ITS SKIN…THIS ALSO IS ANOTHER ANIMAL THOUGHT TO BE EXTINCT.  sUCH VARIETY…SUCH UNIQUE QUALITIES….SHOULD BE PERSERVED. 

A peculiar breed of frog discovered on the island of Borneo seems to have evolved in reverse, scientists reported April 9. Unlike most creatures that developed lungs as they crawled out of the ocean, the lungless Barbourula kalimantanensis breathes through its skin.

Wolverine

Guess what?  there is such a thing as a wolverine!  What can we do to perserve our forests….use less paper?  Replant trees…Keeping it green for such animals.

Until this picture of a wolverine was taken on Feb. 28 by a motion-and-heat-detecting digital camera in the northern part of the Sierra Nevada range in California, scientists didn’t believe wolverines still existed there.

White killer whale

This is a albino killer whale.  The ocean dredging is killing our oceans and the animals that are within.  The constant over fishing is causing the sea animals to loose their food source. 

Researchers working near Alaska’s Aleutian Islands on Feb. 23 spotted a white killer whale, which they estimate was 25 to 30 feet long and weighed more than 10,000 pounds. This is only the third time in the past 15 years that such a whale has been seen in the area.

This Maud Island frog lives at the Karori Wildlife Sanctuary in New Zealand. The rare breed, which has changed little over the past 70 million years, is thriving in the predator-free environment. Unlike other frogs, they hatch fully formed, skipping the tadpole stage. They also do not croak, live in water or have webbed feet.

Rare Sightings

Amur leopard

This is another  animal….so rare that there are only thirty n the world.  Our extistence is dependant on the extistence of our animals. 

In October, wildlife officials caught and examined a critically endangered Amur leopard in order to possibly find out how inbreeding undermines its tiny population in eastern Europe. There are only about 30 such animals left in the wild.

Telea hairstreak butterfly

This beautiful butterfly so delicate….What can we do to continue to see these rare animals/insects?

Visitors flocked to Falcon State Park in Texas after this rare telea hairstreak butterfly was captured on film by Berry Nall in October. The butterfly hadn’t been seen in the U.S. for more than 70 years.

The long-whiskered owlet

These animals can live without our basic assistance.  All they need from us for us humanbeings  to clean up factory emissions,   carbon emissions and chemicals that are leaking into the water and ground and stop cutting down the forests.  What can we do to save this planet for ourselves and our fellow inhabitants like this owl called…..

The long-whiskered owlet, one of the world’s smallest owls, was spotted in the wild for the first time in February 2006. It was seen in a private reserve in Peru.

A beautiful large eye looks out from a unique  organism.  Living unususal and should have the right to live its life.  If we empty the ocean…what will happen to the earth?  Should we dredge for oil and over fish?
In December 2006, scientists released footage of a giant squid — here attacking a bait squid — that may be the first images of a live giant squid at the water’s surface. Sources: AP, livescience.com
Please help keep the earth green for the vegetations and blue for  ocean animals and for ourselves.  Read,  write letters, get involved.  Global Warming?  Who knows?  But cabon emissions, polution are all quite real.  So lets. come together  as the human race.  Does it matter that my skin is brown, yours is white, his/her skin is yellow?  Each living thing is beautiful and has the responsibility and right to exist.  Look at the Squid above….it is strange, but beautiful.  Lets help it to survive….our survival depends on it.
——Survival of the fitest means that the higher the speicies…the more responsible that we have to be to ensure the survival of ALL SPECIES….NOT JUST THE FITEST OR THE STRONGEST….REMEMBER THE CORNY MOVIE….LION KING?   CIRCLE OF LIFE….LETS STAY LINKED AND SURVIVE!
