Via Zandar, who has been doing quite a job fighting The Stupid, I just read a post in Huffington Post titled Why Replacing Biden With Hillary Makes Perfect Sense For Obama.
Here's the money quote:
It's a pretty safe bet that an Obama/Clinton ticket would capture virtually all of these loyal Clintonistas. It's also a safe bet that many of those highly coveted 18-49-year-old women who polls show migrated to McPalin this past week would drop the spunky little hockey mom in a heartbeat for Hillary. Lastly, it's an even safer bet that Obama's current voters would stick with him as well. So, where's the downside? Show me a Democrat, today, who'd dump Obama for McCain if Biden was replaced with Clinton? They don't exist.
He goes on to suggest that we "roll the dice" and "out McCain McCain." And wow, I think that's such a great idea that I'm not sure why he stops with Biden. I mean hey, if we're going to fix the party ticket, how about we go with a double-whammy and swap Obama off of the ticket too? Call me crazy, but I'm thinking that if we don't give Schwarzenegger-Clinton a chance in November, we might as well just pack up the bags and go home right now.
Not only would the 18-million Hillary voters be ecstatic, but we would get every single person who has ever seen a Schwarzenegger film, including the foreigners. And hey, the Obama supporters should just be happy he got the nomination. There is NO WAY any of them would change their minds now. Not a chance. He'll just tell all his cult members that Arnold is their new leader and they'll gladly follow right along. Simply as that.
And then if on Election Day we surprised everyone by replacing Clinton with Emeril Lagasse...BAM! We'd really be on to something. Nobody could stop Schwarzenegger-Lagasse. Unless, of course, Palin replaced McCain with Ronald Reagan's Ghost. But that's a chance that we'll just have to take. Roll the dice!
