BET Founder Bob Johnson Strikes Again!
On CNN’s “American Morning” early Wednesday, BET founder Bob Johnson announced the launching of his campaign to push Senator Hillary Clinton as the prime and only candidate to share the Democratic ticket as VP with Barack Obama.
In a letter to the Congressional Black Caucus, Bob Johnson wrote:
“You know as well as I the deep affection that millions of African Americans hold for both Senator Clinton and President Clinton…but most important, we need to have the certainty of winning.”
Saying that he “is not pressuring” Senator Obama or the Congressional Black Caucus, Bob Johnson admits that the adding of Senator Hillary Clinton to the Democratic ticket as VP should be done if only to unify the Democratic party.
