RUSH: Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Jim, welcome to the EIB Network, sir, hello.
CALLER: (phone buzzing) Hi, Rush. Thanks for taking my call.
RUSH: Yes, sir.
CALLER: (silence) Um, I want to alert people to the possibility that Hillary might be in this to make sure McCain wins and that’s why she’s willing to cut the baby down the middle on the Solomon kind of question.
RUSH: I think you are very shrewd, sir. I think you are very shrewd. I think that if Mrs. Clinton still harbors presidential perspirations beyond this primary, the last thing she needs is for Obama to win in November.
CALLER: You know, you don’t see her husband doing world tours with George Bush’s father lately, have you noticed?
RUSH: I’ve noticed.
CALLER: Now, the best reference I think I can refer to people, too, is the updates page of (unintelligible) to get a grip of this election. Hello?
RUSH: I didn’t get the name of your website, but forget that. The point is the concept that Mrs. Clinton will savage an Obama presidential campaign is something very real to me. Oh, yeah, there’s no question she would do it. Look, if she wants to run for president in 2012, she’s not going to do it with an Obama incumbency. She’d have to be Ted Kennedy running against Jimmy Carter — and as bad as Carter was, Kennedy couldn’t pull it off. If Mrs. Clinton wants to, just like she needed George Bush in 2000 and 2004 instead of Gore; she needs McCain in the White House from November forward if she’s still toying with the idea of running in 2012. An incumbent Democrat, nobody will put up with her running against unless the guy is a total loss, which is entirely possible, would be entirely… (interruption) Yes, Mr. Snerdley? What are you so pained about? (interruption) Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm. No! I don’t think it will be obvious that Mrs. Clinton is sabotaging Obama. I’m not saying she’s going to be out there running against him, but when Republicans do this kind of thing, they’re accused of not playing ball and not unifying and so forth. No, the Clintons will make every public appearance of unity. They’ll be doing everything that they can to make it look like they’ll come together. But mark my words, they’ll be doing everything without fingerprints on it, to sabotage the Obama campaign.
