The Nightmare Ticket Is Dead

The Field reported The Field can now confirm, based on multiple sources, something that both campaigns publicly deny: that Senator Clinton has directly told Senator Obama that she wants to be his vice presidential nominee, and that Senator Obama politely but straightforwardly and irrevocably said “no.” Obama is going to pick his own running mate based on his own criteria and vetting process.

I can't imagine why Hillary wants to be his VP, unless Vince Foster has something to do with it, and I can certainly understand why Obama does not want the two Clintons there, but she has almost as many pledged delegates as he does. Does he really think the Super Delegates that owe Clinton but are supporting him would deny her the nomination for VP?
