US Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton has canceled an appearance at a New York rally next week after organizers blindsided her by inviting Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, aides to the senator said Tuesday.Hmmm, so Hillary Clinton goes out of her way to not attend a rally where Palin will be attending--could it be... ?
Several American Jewish groups plan a major rally outside the United Nations on September 22 to protest against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Okay--I admit that sounds pretty far fetched. But the article goes on to hint at another possible answer to explain why the two are never seen together:
That would have set up a closely scrutinized and potentially explosive pairing in the midst of a presidential campaign, one in which the New York senator is campaigning for Democratic nominee Barack Obama while Palin actively courts disappointed Clinton supporters.[emphasis added]Of course! If the two of them appeared together, they would run the risk of creating a tear in the very fabric of the universe! Hey, I've watched Star Trek--I know about this stuff!
