and in my heart of hearts do I still hope for a Obama/Edwards Ticket...yup...can't help it...

I'll be there with bells on. Ok, running to find those bells now.

Note: he's doing it in Michigan! I want to see Edwards out there on the stump in Kentucky now; he will galvanize them. I hope this opens up the floodgates of superdelegates.

Read my mind E4E. Obama/Edwards would be my dream ticket in the current reality. I still think an Edwards/Obama ticket would be a better one for the country and a definitely unstoppable one but I am resigned to the fact that too many people in very high places wanted absolutely nothing to do with an Edwards presidency. A shame but we have to live in the world we have.
We need to get together and get a Democrate elected in November with an ironclad majority in the Congress.

I am as giddy as a school girl.

I had almost given up on this happening. And the timing could not have been better.

In Edwards speech he brought up his battle against poverty and that Obama is joining that fight. I think that is what Edwards demanded from Obama before endorsing him. It would be just like Edwards to get something good for the American people before agreeing to join Barack's team. Nothing for himself, just something for us.

D.K. Raed said...

ONE AMERICA = UNITY

Seeing them up on stage together, I had a HUGE smile on my face, ear to ear ... gawd, this felt good ...

betmo said...

obama/edwards 2008-- all the way. can they move to my state and run? :)

enigma4ever said...

Betmo:
wow...wouldn't that be something..??? sigh...all fingers crossed...

DK:::
Pretty amazing huh???WOW.....

Gryphen:
I love that Edwards brought up poverty...that really is where his heart is- and that he has not abandoned that....or US as People....it was good to see them together..WOULD that be too much to hope for ??? well said...yup...there for us...again...wow...I am giddy....

enigma4ever said...

( 5:12pm the announcement came across the wires.....wow...how things can change in a few hours...and Hillary's NEWS interviews- did they even air? do we care? nope.......not a wit)...

D.K. Raed said...

CNN was airing Wolf's interview w/Hillary before switching to Edwards endorsement. It was a split screen, her on one side yakking w/Wolf, the crowd being prepped for Obama/Edwards on the other side, in eager anticipation. This went on for about 1/2 hr. Then the split screen became one big screen for Obama taking stage, buh-bye Hill, very abrupt. I switched to MSNBC to watch Obama, then Edwards, but then when Obama came back on both MSNBC & CNN cut to their analysts. You could see/hear Obama still speaking on C-Span (they had him in a little box in the corner), but as soon as the dems came back to vote on something-or-other, C-Span stopped showing Obama. I wonder why it is we get so much coverage of yakking & endless opinion analyzing, but when there is an actual event, we can't be shown the WHOLE thing?

Gryphen said...

Yeah I agree with d.k.!

I am tired of hearing Chris Matthews bloviate. I want my O-BAM-A!

When he is our President they will have to shut the hell up and let him talk.

Oh sweet revenge.

Blueberry said...

This is such great news I am almost giggling. Soon the nomination will be wrapped up. Not soon enough though. He is running against the Terminator.

Larry said...

Obama needs to endorse Edwards as his Vice Presidential nominee.

Sad thing is Edwards said last week he will not accept the Vice Presidency.

enigma4ever said...

Larry:
I hope he does...BUT we did not get to hear what was said by Obama- he was cut off on the endorsement tonight- the frigging media is soo rude that as soon as Obama came to the mike- they cut away....it was so strange...it would have been nice to hear what he said- and it might have been important.

Blueberry:
I have been giddy all night....mostly because this root canal of a primary season is almost over....and Something GOOD happen...

Gryphen:
can you believe that they cut away like that ???unbelievable - so rude...unreal...

DK:
you were brave to watch CNN...I am so sick of Wolf Blitzer....and his pandering and skirting or REAL issues...( but he will focus on and on Wright)...I really did want to see Obama and what he had to say to Michigan and also to Edwards- really rude all the way round..I have not found it yet on any repeat news of cspan...Maybe it is over at Obama's site ? ( and yes gryphen I can not find on Youtube either- I loooked).

Have Hope....there is Change Coming...

enigma4ever said...

Headline over at Huff Post:
"GOP Prospects WORSE than since Watergate"......

( hmmm,maybe I will get my watergate summer after all....just not quite what I expected...)

D.K. Raed said...

C-Span online has the whole 43-minutes up. I'll email you the link. I don't know how to grab just that item off their website.

Fran said...

The ntl news kept flipping back to Hill- then Obama Edwards.

They said in this election the 2 biggest endorsements in the Dem party would be Edwards & Gore.

They flashed to Hillary saying the Edwards endorsement does not mean anything.

Yea right if SHE got the endorsement, she'd be up there saying how BIG it is. If it does not mean anything, why has she been asking for his endorsement? the crazy mixed up world of Hill.

All the media keep asking Hill when are you gonna bag it?

How about Edwards for Attorney General or On the Supreme Court???

I'm picturing him in a black Supreme court robe now.

Great day for Obama.

enigma4ever said...

I think Edwards might do whatever is needed to help the People....I listened to his speech again..VEEP or AG I don't care I just want him there with Obama ....Doing what needs to be done for OUR Country....

About Hillary...the Delusion continues...so tonight....6-6 says " Whelp - I think There has Indeed been a Celestial Moment in Hillary Land...and it ain't pretty"...( remember when she said that making fun of Obama and saying how the Celestial Skies will Open?)

You know I have watched this tape twice....and the BOOS for Waterboarding equal the Hill Boos....we really do have some Pissed Off Americans...and I think that Rift needs healing - and tonight was the first step....BUT it did not involve her..that is for sure...this was all about the TWO men who followed the Rules and did not campaign in Michigan finally on the Stage together....and they looked SO Right Together..

Thanks Fran....

and also DK..for trying to find the Obama part that none of us got to see- thank you idiotpunditheads....oye....

Have a good night all.....

And last night K.O. did another special comment. Boy he tore the Torturer in Chief a new one.

Glad Edwards came out. It could help in Kentucky next Tuesday.

Oh well, back to work.

Take care and ...

God Bless.

enigma4ever said...

Hey Anon,
the Special Comment was amazing....one of the best yet ( okay I am sure I have said that before....)but it was....and yes indeed Edwards should really help in Kentucky....

Hope all is well with you and the Kitties...namaste.
