Should Obama pick Hillary as the Vice President?

5 Jun

Ray: No. We spoke about this earlier when we discussed Barack Obama’s considerations for a VP. I think that Hillary Clinton for VP is a bad idea and here’s why:

  • The VP must obey the orders of the President. There is no power sharing. It’s a job and Obama would be the boss. Do you really think Hillary would be cool in that position?
  • Obama needs a VP with more experience and special knowledge of foreign affairs.
  • Obama needs a strong leader from the South to compete in the Red States.
  • Obama needs a VP that has more conservative views than his own.
  • Obama doesn’t need to wake up and hear news about something Bill Clinton is doing to damage or undermine Obama’s administration.
  • Finally, Hillary Clinton would be much better off becoming a powerful voice in the Senate where she could actually do work that she wants to do.

But, I could be wrong (although there’s no actual record of that ever happening). What do you think?

    Obama does not have enough life insurance to have Hillary as VP.
