    No, she wont. She may get offered the job, but she wont.

    No way. And it would be a very bad move for her politically. She saw what her husband did to Al Gore. That should make her refuse the offer.

    She now has the golden opportunity to grab a power position, whichever one she wants (a Cabinet position, Majority Leader, etc.). She should grab the golden ring while she still has a chance.

    That would be a marriage made in hell. I don't think he will/should offer; they hate each other. Although she is probably more qualified than his other VP candidates. I'm more interested in who McCain selects; he's my guy.

    Only if they're both idiots.

    Since neither of them are idiots, no. She wouldn't add anything he needs to his campaign, and I don't think they'd work well together or compliment each other well. It would be a poor move for her politically and a poor move for Obama.

    If the party is not unified by the end the convention, they might not have a choice. I know the Obama coalition doesn't really care for her, so that would be the main reason behind it. She would make it easier for some democrats, like those Regean dems, to vote for him and pacify the women who felt slighted.

    Be like Kennedy and Johnson...they also hated each other.

    She might if they come to some sort of agreement of major initiatives that she would be involved in.

    Of course, it would require that they both are in agreement with what she is doing since it is his administration.

    But I will bet a thousand of my postings that she wont be his VP.

    It would be an interesting bet, Cas......

    I disagree with LuckyDog and my friend from Buffalo, Munching Zombie... I would say there is a 60%-40% chance she would take it.

    The determining factor on the invitation is how Obama is doing as the summer passes. How is he doing with the retention of "her folks". The factor on her acceptance is how much leeway she has in serving as VP.

    I DO think it would be a winning combination, especially since the Republican dinks (McCain not being a dink, but representing a continuation of disaster)

    No it underminds his message of "CHANGE"! It would be a case of tooo many "CHIEFS"! Like others have said I think she woulkd be offered a cabinet position for sure! And not the Majority leader there are other ahead of her, not the mention the current majority leader!icon_biggrin.gif

    Hillary could possibly be Secretary of State. Obama's Veep will either be Dick Durbin or Joe Biden. I prefer the latter.

    Hillary as Obama's Veep will look phony. Also, it would be political suicide for Hillary because it will look as if she were holding her supporters as ransom if she didn't get it.

    I think he will tap Biden, based on of his foreign policy experience. Obama is sort lacking in that area.

    Biden was my first choice for President and two days after I donated to his campaign, he dropped his bid. I need the investment to pay off in him. But seriously, I really like his platform. A LOT!

    Biden is my top VP choice, but Obama has been spending an awful lot of time with Jim Webb recently...

    Not gonna happen. How could you go from placing ads suggesting the guy above you on the same ticket isn't ready on day one to suddenly being considered his complimentary right hand man/woman? It's not believable. How can you try and embrace "change" when she's an obvious recycle of political thought? I won't get into sharing the spotlight during his presidency if she is asked to come along for the ride. I can't see Michelle allowing ANYONE other than her man and herself center stage. I suspect she will be offered something completely different. Biden is my prediction.

    I'd say it isn't going to happen !!! I think she should be put in some important cabinet position, and that she would do her best to excell in it. I like either Webb or Biden for VP with OBAMA, but I too would prefer Biden.

    You can never say never, but I really doubt it.
    I won't bet $1,000 but maybe as high as $50. icon_cool.gif

    DAAAAAMN, ebl333, what makes you so sure? icon_confused.gif

    I'd go for Jim Webb, Wes Clark, or Sam Nunn. Clark was a Clinton supporter, so that might bring in some of her discontented supporters.

    The interesting word you bring up "change". Why? Well lets see do you honestly believe any major change will happen in the next term? Does anyone believe that change will actuall take place?

    Honestly it will take a full term for any president to undue half the damage bush has caused.

    As far as Hillary for VP I say there is a good probability and the reason is politics is turning out just like pro wrestling, WWE style, its all for show. What the media shows and what happens behind closed doors are often two different things.

    Here's my ranking list and my attempt to justify them....sort of ;)

    1) Webb - military experience/more pragmatic
    2) Biden - brings foreign policy experience
    3) Bill Richardson - foreign policy experience
    4) Clinton - the reconciliation/emotional appeal
