Clintons push a Hillary/Obama ticket

clipped from
Hillary and Bill Clinton are again
teaming up on Barack Obama -- this time saying the first-term
U.S. lawmaker, whom they have derided as inexperienced, would
be a strong running mate on a Democratic presidential ticket
headed by the former first lady.
"It may be the first time in history that the person who is
running number two would offer the person running number one
the number two position,"
Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell, a Democratic who has
sought to rally support for Clinton in his state's April 22
primary, backed the idea of Clinton and Obama teaming up. "It
would be a great ticket," Rendell told NBC's "Meet the Press."
The candidate implied last week she and Obama may end up on
the same ticket, with her on top.
The maneuver may also be aimed at countering an image in
voters' minds of Obama as presidential material and at helping
restore an aura of inevitability as the party's nominee that
Clinton had early in the campaign but lost.
