    (CNN) -- Sen. Barack Obama flatly rejected suggestions Monday he would be a vice presidential running mate for Sen. Hillary Clinton.

    Clinton, Obama's rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, and her husband, former President Clinton, have suggested a joint Clinton-Obama ticket -- with Obama in the second slot.

    President Clinton Saturday suggested a Clinton-Obama ticket would be "unstoppable."

    "He would win the urban areas and the upscale voters. She would win the rural areas that we lost when President Reagan was president," he said while campaigning in Pass Christian, Mississippi. "If you put those two things together, you'd have an almost unstoppable force."

    Obama forcefully shot that idea down.

    Thankfully, nobody is falling for this ploy. The Clinton campaign fundamentally insulted the Obama campaign and their supporters by suggesting that Obama take her offer to be VP despite the fact that he is winning in every measurable way. Bravo, Barack. I hope the super delegates are watching the way in which both of these campaigns conduct themselves.
