I think his comments on a Hilary-Obama ticket are worth discussing:
“You don’t run for second. I don’t believe in that,” the Illinois senator said on the talk show “Late Night with David Letterman.” … “That would be a powerful ticket,” Letterman prodded. … Asked by Letterman whether there were private discussions of the situation going the other way, with Clinton in the No. 2 spot, Obama said the contenders were all in the race to win the party nomination but were on the same team. “Really, what we’re doing is we’re trying out for quarterback,” Obama said.
With two strong contenders, would it be possible for them to run together? And should they? From an appearance standpoint a woman and minority running together would capture a substantial population. But realistically, I think their style, politics, and appeal are too different to run together, and I believe Obama would be a better American President.
