A Hillary-Obama Ticket?
Hillary Rosen at HuffPo writes that Obama is no threat to Hillary Clinton in a 2008 Presidential run.
Yet Hillary's detractors see her as too liberal, too fresh, too ambitious --- too unelectable. Next to Obama you can't help but think she looks a downright conventional choice.
I see Obama as a centrist, not a liberal. I see Hillary Clinton as a centrist.
Wouldn't that be a close to perfect pairing for 2008, the two centrists, a female and an African-American?
One of the questions I have with a Hillary Clinton candidacy is which male contender would agree to run with her in the VP slot? For John Edwards, John Kerry, and most of the other names we know, they might perceive it as a step down to accept the VP slot after campaigning so hard for the Presidential nomination. But for Obama, who has limited experience in the national forum, it would be a step up. He'd probably jump at the chance.
So maybe that's where all this "Obama may run for President in '08" talk is coming from.
I still don't see who anointed him and why, but the media is biting and he's bound to become a household word before too long.
