In the spirit of magnanimity, Barack Obama should offer the VP slot to Hillary. Her age and experience will make the perfect counter-balance to Barack's youth and idealism. My only concern is that independents who would otherwise vote for Obama for president will not do so when they see Hilllary on the ticket.

He said on Jay Leno in the beginning that he would love to have her as VP....wonder if he still feels the same way now?

She doesn't want second fiddle. Besides that, he hasn't won yet.

Hillary will never take a VP spot. She will retire after New York

Gonna have to say there is no way in hell she would take a VP position. I hightly doubt Obama (if he gets the nod and if he wins) would want both her and Bill constantly up in his business.

I dont think you should be concerned about independents who would vote for Obama until they see Clinton, I think you should be concerned about Democrats, or heck, ANYONE, seeing that and voting NO WAY!!

The polls show that people dont want Hillay holding power, but you keep holding out hope...

Obama picks Hillbilly as veep he can kiss his election chances good bye.

Oh, he is ahead in the delegate count. Hope it stays that way and keep the elites on the sidelines where they belong.

Sorry. What I meant to say was the superdelegates, that they don't have the final say on who gets the nomination. Thanks for the clarification.

I hope she just goes away. And I hope NY decides that since she spent most of her tenure campaigning, that she's not worthy to serve them.
