New "Dream Ticket" Group Tied To Clinton
Actually, it’s not just tied to Clinton, it’s comprised entirely of Clinton backers:
WASHINGTON â€” A group called VoteBoth has been leading the charge for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to team up on the Democratic ticket.
But the people behind it come from just one of those camps â€” Clinton’s â€” and one of their goals may be keeping Clinton’s White House prospects alive.
The group’s founder, Adam Parkhomenko, until recently worked as an assistant to Patti Solis Doyle, who was Clinton’s campaign manager until February. Parkhomenko in 2003 founded the Draft Hillary for President Committee.
VoteBoth’s spokesman is Sam Arora. He’s a law school student who in recent years worked for Clinton and for former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe, Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman.
VoteBoth’s Facebook page lists three others as administrators, all with Clinton connections.
Not only that, big-time Hillary backer Chuck Schumer is saying he think it’d be a good idea…
On the viability of an Obama/Clinton ticket: â€œAt first I thought it wasnâ€™t but I do think it could be.â€
On voters: â€œTheyâ€™re worried, and they want somebody to come in and say I can help a little bit you with healthcare, and paying for college, and all these things, and a Democratic candidate is more likely to do it. Hillary and Barack have both run very strong and great races, and I think theyâ€™d be a strong ticket together.â€
I think that’s the meme that will come out of West Virginia and Kentucky. All of her surrogates will be asking if Obama can really get the “hard working” vote.
Actually, it looks like it’s already started.
