The Joint Ticket Gambit

More

A very shrewd move by the Clintons, according to this reader:

Everyone's buzzing about Hillary's "superticket" talk today.  Clearly that's a strategic campaign move for her, and is in no way a part of her oft-hidden gracious nature.  If she can convince enough people that it's a strong possibility for her to choose Obama as VP, she can stem the flow of on-the-fencers and cause them to lean her way.  Because with her, they get a chance at having it both ways!  And that's a guiltless, easy win-win choice for an undecided voter to make.  Conversely, Obama hasn't mentioned her as a possibility, which could start hurting him when it comes down the undecideds he's got to move in the coming primaries.
