Clinton Is Open To Being Obama's VEEP

Hillary Rodham Clinton has told congressional colleagues she would be open to becoming Barack Obama's vice presidential nominee, saying she would consider it if it would help Democrats win the White House.

Clinton, a New York senator, made the comment on a conference call with other New York lawmakers Tuesday, according a participant on the call.

The senator's remarks came in response to a question from Democratic Rep. Nydia Velazquez who said she believed the best way for Obama to win over key voting blocs, including Hispanics, would be for him to choose Clinton as his running mate.

"I am open to it," Clinton replied, if it would help the party's prospects in November.

    Something about Hillary makes me think she's not even thinking about being in the #2 spot (not for long, anyway). Hopefully, that feeling is wrong. Is prophecy soon to come to past? NONE of us actually know who is who and exactly what will happen...

    If she can't go through the front door she will take the back door just in case lightning were to strike Obama's plane.

    Hey Tom, location Greenville. GOD is and has helped us all...there's a CHANGE coming. Thanks to GOD. I'm happy Hillary has put away petty thoughts and actually is thinking about the Democratic party as a whole. Even though Obama doesn't NEED her to win the Presidency. But it does help.

    so editor, what do you do pick and choose what you want to post? Tammy location Kinston.... YOU DID NOT POST MY COMMENT>>>

    EDITOR'S NOTE: If you posted comments about Barack Obama that are known to be false, then yes, we rejected your comment. "Hey, read the rules" says we will not post comments that we know to not be true, and there are a lot of myths floating about on all the candidates.
