Since the early days of what has become a television spectacle, a reality show I like to call "Ultimate Race to the White House," I have pondered the outcome of a Clinton/Obama or Obama/Clinton ticket. Could this be the best chance at Democratic stability? Could this be the player line-up we'd need to take down McCain?
[Obama] suggested that the Clintons were being duplicitous in their offer, implying on one hand that he was not ready to be president, but that on the other, he could solve the party’s political impasse by joining together. “I don’t know how somebody who’s in second place can offer the vice presidency to someone who’s in first place,” Mr. Obama told a town meeting at the Mississippi University for Women here, alluding to his lead in delegates. As the crowd cheered, he said: “If I’m not ready, how is it that you think I should be such a great vice president? Do you understand that?”
