Should He or Shouldn't He?
The case for and the case against an Obama/Clinton ticket. I continue to believe that Hillary will not be on the ticket for the simple reason that there is no compelling reason why she would want to be. Far better to serve as Majority Leader while waiting for John Paul Stevens to retire. And if Hillary isn't on the ticket, I don't think Obama will pick another woman. The only unanswered question is whether or not significant numbers of Hillary primary voters will stay home or (far less likely in my opinion) defect to McBush without her on the ticket. Almost certainly, Obama's people are furiously polling that very question as we speak, particularly in places like Florida and Ohio (which, signficantly, Obama's people now say he doesn't need to get to 270. You can play with a cool map here to see if you agree). If Hillary does end up on the ticket, you'll know the results of those polls.
