Obama: Through Sheer Force of Charisma and Personality I Will Convince Russia, Hamas, North Korea and Iran to Lay Down Their Arms, But Oh, By the Way, I Can't Convince Fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton to Campaign For Me

Hillary seems underwhelmed by The One's inspiring and unifying powers of persuasion.

Oh, well. I'm sure she's just an outlier. Has some kind of special immunity.

Everyone else will fall in line.

Obama's promising his great powers will enable him to do incredible things in the future.

The problem is that he presently has some problems those much-vaunted gifts should help him solve, if he has them at all.

We're all still waiting.

Sure, Obama, I'll believe you can completely reverse Iran's 30-year policy of psychopatic America hatred just by chillaxin' with Achmadinejad.

I'll believe that when I see that same Jedi Mind Trick work on Hillary Clinton.

Get to it, Jedi Master. Let's see it work. Here's your first challenge of negotiating with a hostile power.

And don't tell me "I'll try." Let me quote: Try? Try? Do, or do not. There is no "try."

BTM Says It's All About the Benjamins: Yes, alas:

You know you can't get the Clinton's to do anything without a sizable gratuity. Once the Obama campaign coughs up some cash, she'll be stumping for him.

Possibly... but let's face it, Hillary wants The Big Prize, too.

What's more important to her -- retiring her millions in debt or running for President in 2012?

Questions, questions.
