Hillary for Veep — Are You Insane? A word of advice to Barack Obama on the counsel he is receiving to offer the Vice President spot on the ticket to Hillary Clinton: DON'T!
+
Aside from the absurdity of concentrating all the negatives and worries about black AND female supremacy in one ticket, if you select Hillary, you might as well paint targets all over your body — your heart, the middle of your back, the back of your head, the spot right between the eyes — because there are THOUSANDS of people, Far Left and Far Right, who would be eager to KILL YOU if that would make Hillary Clinton / Bill Clinton President.
+
Lesbian feminists who feel cheated that the first serious woman candidate for a major party's nomination for President didn't win the primary contests, will want to kill you, if that would make her the Presidential candidate or, were you somehow actually to win the November vote, President in your stead.
+
White racists who have no use for lesbian feminism — or any other kind of feminism — but could not possibly consent to having a black man "run the country" will want you dead too. Better a white woman than a black anything!, think they.
+
Actually, you run some risk of assassination by white racists/supremacists if you select any white person for Veep. That of course does not mean that every white person should be ruled out of consideration. You could choose Bill Richardson of New Mexico who, tho plainly white, is more generally conceived of as Hispanic, and be relatively safe. Because the same racist whites who hate blacks, hate Latinos damned near as much, if not even more (since a Hispanic President would play into their insecurity about the future of the English language in a United States inundated by millions of Hispanic immigrants, legal and illegal), so they would see very little point in killing a black President just to have a "spic" take his place.
+
Latinos would be unlikely to want to assassinate you to create the first Latino President, because they see that coming soon anyway, and they'd rather it just happen naturally than that the rise of a Hispanic President be tainted by violence.
+
You could select an Asian or American Indian. Be it an Oriental (Chinese, Filipino, Japanese from Hawaii or California) or a man from the Indian Subcontinent, an Asian would be unlikely to incite murderous fanaticism on the part of people of his own ethnicity, and white supremacists would, again, see no point in killing a black man just to install a 'furriner', 'gook', 'Chink' — whatever. Were there a well-regarded Hindu or Christian, of very lite complexion, whose ancestors derive from India, many racially threatened whites could see him as white (and be on sound ground, ethnographically), but not so white that fanatical white racists would want him to be President. A Moslem Pakistani would, however, seem out of the question. Too soon.
+
A Christian American Indian could be a good choice, tho none comes to mind. Yes, there are a few white racists who would find that objectionable — but that protects you from assassination by them. But many Americans would find the idea of an American Indian as Vice President superpatriotic. After all, for anti-immigrant "nativists", who is more American than an Indian?
+
Even if you went with the most Wonder-bread-mayonnaisy white guy, even from the South (say, John Edwards), you'd have only one group of violent loons to have to worry about, white racists. If you chose Hillary, you'd have at least three groups of loons to worry about: lesbian feminists, white supremacists, and Clinton supporters who want Bill Clinton back in the White House no matter what the Constitution says.

(The current U.S. military death toll in Iraq, according to the website "Iraq Coalition Casualties", is 4,092 — for Israel.)
