    I don't think it'll happen, but it would be a good ticket and a good way to stir up some enthusiasm for the good old days.

    It should be Clinton-Obama, but I'll take Obama-Clinton. Hillary is 64, so that would leave her enough time to be president in 2016 - if she wanted it.

    I agree. However, that would almost guarantee Obama a 2nd term.

    Agreed. And like you say, if he did win re-election with Hillary as his VP, that sets her up for 2016 pretty well.

    Sadly, I'm afraid she might refuse such an offer. As I recall, she made it pretty clear that she was leaving the Obama Administration at the end of his 1st term. She doesn't need the money and may not even want the fame.

    If Hillary accepts after the way he and his followers treated her.

    then I have even less respect for her than I already have and we will know the real reasons.....for power only..not for the good of the people

    It's fairly certain that Mrs. Clinton will not be Secretary Of State in the 2nd Obama term. Too much travel, which wears her out.
