  1. Hopefully she will find a way to win the nomination. If she does manage to obtain the nomination, I have contended from the beginning that she would have to choose Obama as a running mate. Regardless, the entrance of at least a semi-known (even if also semi-nutty) black candidate on the left will guarantee his selection as VP, but also helps make his case for the top job to the superdelegates (i.e. to prevent a possible mass-exodus of a number of blacks in the general election). While I feel this is unlikely if Hillary gets the nomination, I think it is one of the best arguments Barack can make.

  2. No, TE, I am fairly confident that the Greens’ choice is not a factor whatsoever in what the ex-oficio delegates of the Democratic Party will do.

    By the way Cynthia also happens to be a woman, so I am unsure why only her being African-American supposedly enters into the Clinton-Obama calculations.

    (I also do not believe Obama ever would have been Clinton’s running mate, but we’ll never know now.)

  3. Wow, I’m on the edge of my seat.

    Who will the Greens nominate?

    It’s SO important!

  4. The woman factor is just that, a factor, but not as much of one as the race factor. If there is a rebellion among the 90-95% of blacks that vote Democratic it will matter much more than if there is the same rebellion among women. Also, Hillary ain’t getting over 90% of the black vote in a democratic primary.
