Andrea Mitchell: Hillary Wants VP Slot Hillary-friendly NBC newswoman Andrea Mitchell said Sunday that the former first lady is indeed interested in teaming up with Sen. John Kerry as his vice presidential running mate. Dismissing the longshot prospect that Sen. John McCain might switch parties to run with Kerry, Mitchell told NBC's "Chris Matthews Show," "I think there's another long ball - Hillary." "According to Republicans and Democrats on the Hill in the cloakrooms, she is interested in running," Mitchell insisted. She suggested that Sen. Clinton is "doing what is necessary" right now to show pro forma support for Kerry's presidential bid, but would take a much higher profile if she knew such an invitation was in the offing. link That's a shocker.
