8. If Obama picked Hillary as a VP, he'd have to spend all his time
looking over his shoulder to make certain she or Bill were not sticking a knife in his back. No, thank you! I used to think that a unity ticket would be desirable but that was sometime ago. I won't ever vote for that woman. Not for any office, in this election, 2012, or in my lifetime.
