    Default Finally! Hillary Clinton for VP drive folds, as hopes for dream ticket fade

    Clinton for VP drive folds, as hopes for dream ticket fade
    associated press

    "Vote Both," a group dedicated to persuading Barack Obama to pick former foe Hillary Clinton as his vice presidential running mate, is folding, as hopes of a "dream ticket" fade.
    Organizers Adam Parkhomenko and Sam Arora said they were halting their campaign, based on indications that the presumptive Democratic nominee was looking elsewhere for a right-hand man, or woman.
    "Because it seems that Senator Obama has made his decision to offer the slot on the ticket to another candidate, we believe that continuing to ask him to pick Hillary is no longer helpful to our party's chances of winning in November," they wrote in a website message to supporters.
    The two former Clinton staffers concluded that reports that Obama had offered Clinton a prime-time speaking role on the second night of the party's convention in Denver next month meant she would not be his pick for number two.
    Vice presidential nominees traditionally speak on the penultimate night of the four-day convention.
    "We worked for Hillary for a combined 10 years, so we know how many of you may be feeling," they wrote.
    "And to those who are hesitant to support Obama right now, we urge you to keep giving him the chance to earn your vote. We are confident he will."
    When she wrapped up her historic bid to become America's first woman president in June, Clinton pleaded with supporters to transfer their affections to Obama, to break the Republican stranglehold on the White House.
    But some fervent supporters said they would find it hard to back Obama after such a drawn-out and bitter fight.
    The former first lady, who piled up votes among women and working-class voters especially, has already campaigned with Obama, and has said she plans to throw herself into the fight to elect him in battleground states.
    Vice presidential speculation surrounding Obama, and his Republican rival John McCain, is peaking in the month-long run-up to the party conventions.
    The Democratic spotlight has recently fallen on Virginia Governor Tim Kaine.
    Meanwhile Republican Mitt Romney, rumored to be on McCain's shortlist, was quoted in the Washington Post as saying "I don't plan on being part of the ticket" -- hardly a cast-iron refusal to serve if selected.

    This probably has to do with the news that came out today that Hillary will be speaking on the second night of the convention, instead of the night that's reserved for the VP candidate. And she's suppose to be surrounding herself with female senators, according to the news report I saw.

    No one that knows anything about politics thought she would be on the ticket......

    I think Tim Kaine won't get the nod either....he's pro-life.....he says he's pro-life personally and not politically, but I think it kills his chances....and he also has no foreign policy experience, which is what Obama lacks...they need someone on the ticket that brings some experience in that area

    I agree. Obama needs somebody who has both foreign policy experience, as well as military experience to shore him up in those areas.

    I don't like Tim Kaine as a choice or the govenor of Virginia.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    Supposedly, he's also considering Governor Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas and Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri.

    I didn't know McCaskill was a possible choice. She's a great lady
