It appears that Barack Obama’s right hand decision has back slapped Hillary Clinton. There are reports that the ticket of Obama and Clinton will never rear its head. Two of Clinton’s staffers started a group called “Vote Both” as a rallying call to put the two together. But Obama had not given any indication that she was anywhere near being a contender for the position of V.P.

But hasn’t these things been said before? Why is it that the media is choosing now to say she’s not a contender? Check out the details for yourself.

Delta airlines landed in Atlanta today with one less passenger. The unidentified woman went to the restroom and never returned. Which makes you wonder: 1) Should we be on some sort of buddy system with our fellow seatmates? 2) Shouldn’t the “occupied” sign alert the airline attendants once they’ve cut on the “get in your damn seat!” sign? And last but not least, 3) Does the airline refund the monies of those undelivered? When you read the story, you’ll see that this is not the first time this has happened.
