Hillary for VP: Obama's Best Hope for Re-election?

RealClearPolitics blogged
If by early next year President Obama's re-election chances are looking as dicey as they do now, there is likely to be a growing clamor inside Democratic circles to drop Joe Biden from the ticket and replace him with Hillary Clinton.
Why would she settle for second banana? Why not run against him in a primary
.... Clinton would add some much-needed pizazz to a tough campaign that Biden does not. More importantly, she would shore up a shaky Democratic base, a huge part of which consists of disappointed women who still believe the secretary of state should have been president and would have done a better job than Obama.
Would they be fooled by a second banana slot? I really don't want Hillary any more than Obama, but I would like to see them duke it out again in a Democratic primary
