6. She's going to have a hard time finding a VP...
Edited on Sat Jan-19-08 04:19 PM by 1corona4u
Joe already said specifically he wouldn't be her VP;

DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) -- Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Joe Biden on Sunday ruled out the vice presidential slot altogether if Sen. Hillary Clinton is his party's nominee, saying her husband would overshadow the position.

"If I don't win the nomination, the likely nominee is going to be Hillary," Biden, D-Delaware, told CNN, "and I love Bill Clinton, but can you imagine being vice president?"

The former president "is such a dominant and powerful and positive force that I think the question is if you're going to stay in public life do you want to be a contributor ... I'm not looking for a ceremonial post," he said.

Biden said he would like to remain chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee if he does not win the Democratic nomination, saying that position would allow him to make "a much greater contributor to the security of the country."

If you read Joe's book, he talked about Bill, and some....temperment issues. I just don't think he would. But if she is the nominee, Bill needs to take a step back. Just not sure he knows how to do that...

OH, my guess for her VP--Jim Webb.
