Since there obviously won’t be a Clinton-Obama or Obama-Clinton ticket — impossible, given that Clinton doesn’t think Obama passes the “Commander-in-Chief threshold” — Mark Karlin of BuzzFlash has an alternative:
A ticket needs both balance and coherence. McCain-Clinton has both. On gender and geography, the two are perfect complements. On a deeper level, they’re closely compatible:
Vetted? Check. (She says so herself.)
Ready to be Commander-in-Chief on Day 1? Check. (Ditto.)
Lots of DC experience? Check.
Willing to be surrounded by lobbyists? Check.
Survived financial scandal? Check.
Supported Iraq war? Check.
Voted to sabre-rattle against Iran? Check.
Mostly against torture, more or less? Check.
Ran scary “It’s 3 am, the White House phone is ringing” ad? Check
Anyway, don’t they make a cute couple?
