This is beginning to make the rounds win in the press. Personally, even though it's hard for me to be objective about this, I think it's a really, really awful idea for Obama.

Here the man just basically has led a successful insurgency, a coup against the Clinton's for the Democratic Party, basically painting the Clintons as part of the problem, not the solution. Clinton has effectively demonstrated her hamhandedness and ruthlessness, thereby blowing the huge advantage she had when the campaign opened. So now, he would turn around and make Hillary his running mate? Huh?

Personally, Obama has about a 45% chance of winning the presidency, in my humble opinion. Putting Hillary on the ticket would drop that number like a paralyzed falcon, chiefly because she's such a polarizing figure. Seriously, very few people like the idea of the Clintons stalking the White House again, even if Hillary is the putative #2. The political intriguing would begin about five nanoseconds after Obama took the oath of office.

So why on earth are people bandying this about? It makes zero sense to me whatsoever

It's not gonna happen......the repubs are already drafting their change message so putting Clinton on the ticket would erase the "change" message for the dems. However, there's a greater chance that the VP selected will be a woman.
