I love the fact that he's not playing Hillary's game. Good for him.

I do have to wonder though, if in a few months Hillary does become the Democrats nominee (which I think is getting more and more unlikely though, not completely ruled out yet) whether he would take the position anyways? All those people saying he doesn't have experiance would have a lot harder time making that arguement if spent 4 to 8 years as VP and he could try again then.

I imagine that's what Hillary was hoping he would think and play nice because of it. but it seems like he's not interested. I just hope he's the kind of guy who would stick to his guns about that. Cause he'd lose a lot of points with me if he turned around and took Hillary's offer.

I feel the same way.

Frankly, I thought it was a little odd for Hillary to say that in the first place. I don't know quite what to make of it. Was there desperation on her part, taking this victory as an opportunity to publicly say that she's willing to work with Obama, hoping that he'll extend her the same if, as is likely, he becomes the nominee? Was it her awareness that many Democrats see this as a dream team, and her attempt to open the door for that for the party? However squicky I feel about the Clintons, I do believe they're willing to do just about anything to make a November win happen. Is it just that she's that determined to get power, and thinks that proximity will enable her and Bill to run things again, and then make her a shoo-in for the next election?

Like I say, I just don't know how to interpret it.
