7. if Hillary runs I just can't see it. What would be his base? He certainly does not offer an

ideological alternative to Hillary. As Vice President he would not be able to position himself to the left of Hillary in order to appeal to the progressive wing. There is no broad constituency that would prefer him to Hillary. He does not have a particular Charisma factor that might ignite a campaign. Now, if for some reason Hillary does not run - he would by default become the frontrunner. But if Hillary does not run there will be more major league contenders entering the race than if she does.
