RUSH: Michael in Northridge, California, thank you for calling, sir. Welcome to the EIB Network.

CALLER: Thank you, Commander.

RUSH: You bet.

CALLER: You just said it. The Democrat elites — in the DNC, for example, and the Democrat Party — this is what I’ve always thought about for the last year. Obama’s got those people. He’s basically got ’em blackmailed. If he doesn’t get the nomination, blacks will not turn out to vote, and there’s going to be a sea change in Congress in composition. They’d rather lose the general with him on the ticket and keep their power, than have somebody win a nomination even through a brokered convention, which are in the rules.

RUSH: But there’s a problem. They’re gonna anger a seriously large constituency group regardless. It’s either blacks that are going to get mad and maybe not vote or crossover vote for McCain, or it’s these elite feminist women.

CALLER: Your first caller had it right. The 19% or whatever the women percentage is, is a lesser percent to deal with, to bring them back into the fold, and they’re probably more convinceable and persuadable to bring them back in the fold. I’m just intuitively thinking that. The other thing is, you know, Hillary is not in this to lose. She’s in this to win, and she’s done the math, and she knows she can’t get a delegate lead going into the convention.

RUSH: Neither can he!

CALLER: Correct. So she has to know that there’s gotta be some sort of strategy — or strategery (chuckles) — to get this done. If she does a superdelegate strategy, she’s going to disaffect the black vote, so I don’t think that that’s their strategy.

RUSH: That’s the only strategy there can be.

CALLER: No, I don’t think that people are remembering Filegate, Livingstone and Webster Hubble.

RUSH: If they had that stuff on Obama.

CALLER: They’ll use it at the last minute.

RUSH: No. They wouldn’t have let it get this far. She’s in debt $20 million. There’s no way they would have let it go this far!

CALLER: You’re probably right I’m just saying there has to be a different strategy because that one is sheer doom. She’s going to lose the presidency and the DNC is going to be waving bye-bye to their big offices.

RUSH: You could be right. I mean, it’s a long shot, but this is all part of Operation Chaos. But the only strategy here is with the superdelegates, and the only strategy she’s got is an argument.

CALLER: Well, I say there’s a July-August Surprise, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Bubba going over to Obama and sharing his pain, because I’ve been there and done that. But, you know, maybe Obama finds a way to walk away, because she can’t chop him down, because that’s a guaranteed loser. I say this is the best form of entertainment known to man, okay? What we’re witnessing right now, okay? And something has to give, one another, something has to give. I don’t think it’s a third candidate. If you do that, okay, you’re going to have the same problem times two: You’re gonna disaffect the women voters and the black voters.

RUSH: You’ve got the same problem no matter what happens. That’s the point of Operation Chaos!

CALLER: So you’ve gotta take your least-loss strategy, and I’m not sure what that is, but something tells me that.. You know, look, they don’t sit. The Clintons don’t sit.

RUSH: Let me pose this. Since you’ve been thinking about this, let me pose this to you.


RUSH: How about this as a loss-leader strategy, or least-loss strategy, and that is: Obama as president, Hillary as the veep on the ticket.

CALLER: Nah. Neither of those two are going to be subservient, if you will, on the ticket to the other. It’s logically possible…

RUSH: Wait a minute. You just told us the Clintons are in this to win. What better spot to undermine Obama as president, than from the US Naval Observatory vice presidential residency?

CALLER: (chuckles) I’m not looking at it from that point. I’m looking at it from an election, in the general.

RUSH: I understand. But the Clintons are like the Soviets. You don’t have to win today, you just have to win. You take a couple steps forwards, you take a couple steps back, you take another couple more forward. You keep your eyes on the prize.

CALLER: That’s right.

RUSH: There are no time constraints on your victory. Victory is all that counts.

CALLER: But they have to have a calculus to win, and that calculus has to play — okay? — before the convention.

RUSH: No, no, no, no. Well, of course I’m sure they have one of those, but it’s the supers.

CALLER: You know what? That’s conventional. Everyone says it. Everyone says this; everyone says that. Everyone says, ‘This person’s out of it,’ and, ‘This person’s the front-runner,’ and then everything gets topsy-turvied in a month later. I mean, McCain shouldn’t be where he is, he’s there. Hillary was predominantly… She had a 30-point national lead. Now she’s on behind. I mean, nothing is today what it will be tomorrow and something tells me we’re in for a big surprise.

RUSH: Well, and that big surprise for me could be Hillary undermining Obama as vice president leading impeachment proceedings against him —

CALLER: (laughter)

RUSH: — planting all kinds of evidence in the residence of The White House, any number of things.

CALLER: Well, then they’d have already done that. If that’s in the cards, they’d do it now.

RUSH: That what I’m saying. They don’t have a Craig Livingstone and FBI files on the guy. If they did, it would have been used a long time ago. These people, they are leaking money. This is not how this is supposed to have happened.
