According to CNN, Obama leads Clinton 1629 to 1486 delegates, has won more states, and leads in the popular vote, and is well on his way to closing out the primary election. As such, Patty Solis Doyle, Clinton’s former campaign bigwig who was ousted for, well, incompetence, is offering up the new fusion ticket with Obama and Clinton. Small problem- Doyle wants the candidate trailing in delegates and states won and popular vote to head the ticket (via Marc Armbinder):
If you can’t figure out why Obama would decide to give up his lead and agree to be the Vice President, you just don’t think like a Clinton supporter. The reason you would do this is simple- because it would be awesome:
It just never stops. I can’t decide if Hillary is running a Presidential campaign or a push to employ more SNL writers.

Bonus dementia from Taylor Marsh commenters:
Let Hillary pick her own VP.

This is not something that I would like to see. I am not a fan of Barack Obama, and this will make it much more difficult for me to vote for Hillary. I think that if this were to happen, the Democrats will lose a lot of support in November. I don’t want Barack Obama to even have a chance at being president. What if something were to happen to Hillary while she was president? Barack would then become the president and I would not like that one bit. Please don’t sign the petition!

Please go to the Marc Ambinder site and post a comment. It is very pro-Obama and nasty towards Hillary. Big surprise. I just said “Hillary should definitely choose her own VP”. So go make a comment for our girl.

Any ticket with Obama is damaged goods. This ship for this idea has sailed.
Hillary should be free to pick any VP she wants to.
This is not about making nice- it’s about winning in November.

In the alternate universe in which Hillary supporters reside, not only is Hillary winning, but Obama doesn’t even deserve second place.
Seriously, what is going on? Is this a cult? Are these people drugged? Should we start to worry now, or when they start wearing identical black suits with Nikes?
