Not only that, Bill is pushing the idea too.
ABC’s Sarah Amos reports: While Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are both taking the day off from campaigning, Hillary’s number one surrogate and husband, Bill Clinton, is spending the day in Mississippi, and hinting that perhaps the best ticket for the Democratic party is one with BOTH candidates on it.

And the map in Missouri or — well Arkansasâ€™s not a good case because they know her and she won every place there. But you look at most of these places, he would win the urban areas and the upscale voters, and she wins the traditional rural areas that we lost when President Reagan was president. If you put those two things together, youâ€™d have an almost unstoppable force,” Clinton went on to say.
Again, I wonder if Hillary is trying to discredit Obama as a viable prez candidate or if she knows she can get the delegates and instead is forcing Obama’s hand for a VP.
I think it’s the latter. I guess we’ll see.
