Subject: Vice President for Obama


Hi Lisa,

What is wrong with American Democrats?

The second most popular Democrat behind Obama is Hillary Clinton and no one else can bring more votes to Obama as his vice president. Period.

Today I saw an article on Obama's short list ( Evan Bayh, Joe Biden and Tim Kaine on short list to run with Obama
New York Daily News) and it really disturbed me. Who are these people? Never heard of them.

I live in London and I bet either of the Clintons could be elected to the top office of many European countries  (if possible!) and your American Democrat party won't even consider her for VP. Where is your loyalty to two people who have done so much, not only for their country, but the world?

Lisa, you recently wrote that Democrats are masochists. I think you are very right.

I hate for your country to elect another Republican, because life was better in Europe while Clinton was president. That is why he is so popular here.

If I can forgive Prince Charles for marrying his mistress--then Americans can forgive Bill for cheating on Hillary.

What a shame your country does not appreciate the Clintons.

What a bloody shame.



Thank you for writing, Liz.

Life was much better here in the states under Clinton, too.

I can't blame the Democrats completely. I lay some blame on our media who have continuously bashed the Clintons from day one.  Our mainstream media resembles your Fleet Street.

What can we expect from the U.S. media who were more interested in a Monica Lewinsky than a Valerie Plame?
