Interesting thread. I think Obama picks a URM to be VP, he at least could get the Hispanic vote. But I don't think he needs to in order to win. He just beat Hillary Godamn Clinton. He'll be fine.

Not here. HRC whacked him by 41 points last month.

This sums up my attitude, and where I will be come November.  They're both awful.

Maybe so, but at least I'm not running for president.

His opponent got 18 million votes and took almost every state Dems must have to win in November.

Fair enough, but you know Obama also received approximately 18 million votes.  Both candidates had an unprecedented number of supporters, perhaps due to their qualities, but more likely due to the length of the campaign and the excitement the early primaries generated.

Right, that statement wasn't meant as a "Hillary ran away with it" but rather a "it was a very close contest, chill." 

I think it would be foolish for him (and by him I really mean our chances in November) to carry on as though he ran her into the ground when considering where to go over the next five months.  Narrowly defeating an opponent who unexpectedly won a race on the last day of a very competitive primary should not suggest carrying on with tactics inappropriate to a very different contest.   

I see very little evidence that he is carrying on as if he ran her into the ground except on Clinton blogs where her supporters are complaining about it.  Is there something in particular to which you're responding that I missed?  (I don't have cable news so this may be part of the problem.)
