WASHINGTON (FMLiveWire) - Confusion in the race for the 2008 US presidential election arose on Wednesday when front-running Democrat Hillary Clinton announced that Ron Paul would be her running mate.
The confusion doubled when Republican underdog Ron Paul promptly announced that Hillary Clinton could be his running mate "if she was a bit more Libertarian."
The surprising announcements left reporters scratching their heads as they sought clarifications from the candidates about the weird developments.
"But I though Ron Paul was some sort of Democrat," explained a red-faced Hillary Clinton at a news conference hurriedly held to try to repair the damage.
Ron Paul likewise told reporters outside of his headquarters that he thought Clinton was "some kind of Republican."
The situation became even more confused when Senator Clinton demanded that Ron Paul change his allegiance and become a Democrat "so that I can mate with him."
Ron Paul politely refused the offer, saying that Clinton's demands "were too much."
But Paul diplomatically added that he was grateful for the offer since "it shows that I am being increasingly recognized as real McCoy Presidential material and a rising star to Democrats and Republicans alike."
