Meet The Press
March 16, 2008
Former Sen. Bill Bradley
Rep. Nita Lowey
Russert: Nita be honest if Obama wins all the votes and states and delegates won't we have to settle for the black man?
Lowey: hey there was a Commission once somewhere that said that Superdelegates are just as good anyone else - why treat them as second class citizens??
Lowey: really it's a tie and so now we have to have a constructive discussion on how Hillary can be the nominee and Obama as her vice president
Russert: but polls show people would prefer to elect the nominee democratically
Lowey: let's not get bogged down in who voted for who
Russert: Bill if a person has more delegates should they be the nominee?
Russert: Bill wake up - buzzer time!
Bradely: huh what oh yeah delegates they are important but there's a long way to go he doesn't have it wrapped up yet
Russert: whoa calm down there big guy
Bradley: As Nita said they are elected officials - if they oppose their constituents i would say that's a nice Congressional seat it would be a shame if something happened to it
Timmy: Clinton said we shouldn't count Florida and now she says we should
Lowey: look we're all adults here
Timmy: I'm not
Lowey: as adults we understand that Clinton is going to demand the votes that went her way be counted no matter she said before
Bradley: Hubert Humphrey!
Lowey: We've got to win in November by letting Florida change the rules
Bradley: Will Hillary Clinton pardon people who donate money to the Clinton library? i think she might
[ Eliot Spizter at home, looks up Clinton Library phone number ]
Lowey: hey we've already seen the Clinton's tax returns from the 1970s do really need to see the recent ones?
Russert: yes actually
Lowey: but look over there Bill Clinton fought AIDS in Africa
Russert: $500,000 in cash will get your attention i would think
Lowey: look over there bill bradley once criticized al gore!!!
Timmy: yeah but that was fun
Bradley: that's the old politics where you call your opponent a muslim - the new politics is where you believe in humankind
Russert: no androids that's so sad for mitt romney
Lowey: yes Hillary is very secretive but that's a strength - plus i could slime him with that loony pastor but i won't
Russert: please bash Hillary from 1993
Bradely: i love bipartisanship we should bring both parties together - the normal Americans and the crazy republicans
Timmy: why no health care?
Bradely: Washington DC is poisonous
Lowey: let's a have six week discussion about their health plans which are not that different
Russert: oh my god this Pastor is crazy and he dresses funny!!!
Obama: never heard of him
Bradley: it's true he's incendiary but he's just a crazy cranky old man - he's like the David Broder of the south side
Lowey: good enough for me
Russert: Ferraro says black men always win the presidency
Lowey: hey we've got crazy people supporting Hillary as well
Russert: Wright / Ferraro 08!
Russert: ok Ferraro/Wright
Bradley: Clinton is trying to divide us and Obama is trying to unite us to save Citigroup
Lowey: Hillary has a ten point plan on 20 different issues and Superdelegates must endorse whichever Democrat won the Texas primary
Russert: of course - thx 4 coming the excitement this morning was so thick you could cut with a marshmallow
Russert: tell me what happens
Broder: Hillary can't catch him with elected delegates but she has a 60 day window when she can arranged for Obama to meet with a little accident
Broder: someone will drop out by force
Gregory: no one really thinks the Supers should overrule the elected delegates
Russert: but she could surpass him in popular vote totals
Norris: even Pelosi thinks that's stupid
Russert: so how does she win
Norris: People in Pennsylvania are very depressed
Russert: we all know that
Russert: tony rezco!
Broder: he anything can come out
Russert: donations to Clinton library!
Gregory: the real point is if this tarnishes them for the general election
Russert: must these candidates come on my show and answer my stupid questions?
Norris: it's generational younger people think you are an idiot older people are in thrall to your shititude
Russert: but Wright is a crazy black man!
Norris: hey tim a lot of people agree with what he said
Russert: my black friends are worried that white America is scared
Norris: why would they say that
Russert: i was hiding under my desk
Broder: but I thought Obama was one of the good ones
Norris: that's how black churches sound old man
Russert: why isn't McCain losing???
Gregory: he says hey i was always against the war i was for
Russert: i am now going to grin fatuously thinking about McCain as quasi-president
Broder: McCain can now be an anti-war president by agreeing with Petraeus that the Democrats were right
Cheney: we will be greeted as liberators
Russert: what if we are not?
Cheney from 2003: that won't happen the Iraqi will unite and throw flowers at us
Norris: what an idiot
Broder: i think the war could actually be important politically
Gregory: it's a total fucking disaster
Tim: but McCain says we only have to stay for 100 years
Gregory: bullshit the people don't even know how many people were killed
Gregory: credit crises!
Russert: its the economy stupid!
Broder: this getting scary all my money is in MONY
Timmy: ride the pony!
