A Generous Offer Rejected?
Senator Hillary Clinton has proposed Senator Barack Obama for the vice presidential spot (with her as the presidential candidate) not once, but twice. And former President Bill Clinton has been talking up a Clinton/Obama ticket as “unstoppable”.
Today, Senator Obama declined the number two spot, pointing out
With all due respect, I have won twice as many states as Senator Clinton. … I have won more of the popular vote than Senator Clinton. I have more delegates than Senator Clinton. So, I do not know how somebody who is in second place is offering the vice presidency to the person who is in first place.
… oh, that’s right.
