I’ve heard a lot of people justify voting for Hillary, pictured about to catch a grape in her mouth, because they think Obama will be her VP and then he could be president in eight years. Ronald Martin has a really good editorial over on CNN about why the Obama-Clinton/Clinton-Obama “dream ticket” will remain only a dream. He outlines five different arguments for why neither candidate would want to be on the same ticket as the other, including that Hillary doesn’t want to be overshadowed by her VP and Obama wouldn’t want to deal with competing with Bill for influence.
Former Democratic candidate Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, when asked if he wanted to be her VP, he said competing with Bill Clinton isn’t his cup of tea. Some would say that serving as VP two terms under Clinton would give Obama administrative experience, and he would be 54 when he could run, but I just don’t buy it.
It’s a short and interesting read for anybody who thinks they could have the “best of both worlds” by voting for Hillary tomorrow.
