Tom Daschle, one of Obama’s top aides, confirmed that Senator Clinton is indeed on the shortlist and added that Barack is “sincerely considering” Clinton.

“I think he needs two things, first somebody who can become president in the case of a tragedy and secondly, somebody with whom he can work closely,” Daschle told ABC News. “I think Hillary Clinton would be, as Barack Obama has said, on anyone’s short list and I think that is sincere. I think he is looking at Hillary and a host of other possibilities for the future.”
