So I'm in the car this afternoon trying to take a brief rest before returning to the retail wars. The sports radio stations were broadcasting various march madness games and there wasn't enough time to get wrapped up in that so I went back to the local right wing AM talk radio channel and Sean Hannity's program was on.
The segment featured rightist pollsters Scott Rasmussen and John Zogby. All three were discussing the damage done to Obama by the Wright affair and the two pollsters were agreeing down the line with their numbers.
Basically, Obama is sinking like a stone and so on. There was discussion of the need for Democrats to pick a candidate before the convention and how Clinton, with fewer delegates, might outmaneuver Obama in the end.
There was no bashing of Democrats from the two guests and just a little from Hannity.
Then Rasmussen said something that caught the other two completely flat footed.
He said that he was hearing the beginnings of a conversation in the Democratic Party that would have the two candidates sit down with Jimmy Carter, Nancy Pelosi and a few other high ranking Dems and set everything right by having...
Obama pledge his delegates to Al Gore. Obama would be Gore's running mate as the candidate for Veep. Clinton would become Speaker.
You could have heard a pin drop. Dead air and then the stunned host and the pwned pollster began to mull that tidbit over for a while. Dead serious. I mean no hype or mockery.
They moved on but the thought is out there. I searched for it before posting this and couldn't find any reference to it so it's just my feeble memory and some quick notes I made while I was listening.
It's not like it's illegal or anything. The Democrats can make up and change rules as the desire. It's their party.
Maybe this is Gore's year after all?
