Now a word was secretly brought to me, and my ear received a whisper of it. In disquieting thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on men, fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones shake. Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair on my body stood up. --- Job 4:12-15
After her embarrassment in the Iowa caucus, Mrs. Clinton got a measure of revenge over B. Obama in New Hampshire. These two Democratic front runners are in a real slugfest to say the least. It will be brass knuckles all the way through successive primaries in the coming weeks and months.
How about this for a winning "combo" come election time in November 2008? Mrs. C. and B. O. hooking up in an effort to win the White House for 4 years starting in January 2009?
Each of these is appealing to and receiving support from certain segments of the population -- add them together and you have a number that no other candidate, Democrat or Republican, can match!
Never happen, you say? That could be and I am certainly no prophet nor the son of a prophet on such matters. But I do remember back when John Kennedy was running for president -- he and Lyndon Johnson despised each other, but it was recognized that Kennedy had to take Texas if he was going to have a chance at winning the presidency -- and so, politics being the smelly and hypocritical business that it usually is, L.B.J. was put on the ticket as Vice President and Kennedy won Texas and the office of President of the U.S.A!
Now in the Mrs. C. and B. O. deal -- with each possessing an ego that makes Mt. Everest seem like a miniature mole hill by way of comparison, there could be more than a bit of tension as to who has what slot -- but B. O. is a very young man in the political realm -- he could serve 2 terms as a V. P. and still be young when it comes to making a run for the presidency.
Many have been amazed at the meteoric rise of B. O. in such a short time in the game of politics, but remember this -- a meteor makes a very bright and spectacular flash in the sky for a short time and then it's done -- there's nothing left afterward but dust and ashes! Politicians in recent decades have resembled this process again and again with lots of dust and ashes left in their wake!
If the Mrs. C. and B. O. combo should actually happen, look out -- a nightmare of indescribable horror will begin in January of 2009!
But then if either one of the above captures the presidency with someone else as her or his V.P. it will still be one that will qualify for an entry in the Guinness Book of Records as the most horrifying happening ever to hit a republic known as the U.S. of A!
Woe to her who is rebellious and polluted, to the oppressing city! She has not obeyed His voice, she has not received correction; she has not trusted in the LORD, she has not drawn near to her God. Her princes in her midst are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves that leave not a bone till morning. Her prophets are insolent, treacherous people; her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law. --- Zephaniah 3:1-4
