In Boca Raton, Florida this past Thursday, Barack Obama was asked about his choice for a vice-president. Obama was asked (in not so many words) if he could ask Hillary Clinton to be his running mate even with everything that had gone on with her husband, Bill Clinton.

In his carefully worded response (see YouTude video above), he referenced a book by Doris Kearns Goodwin imagecalled "Team of Rivals". Obama described how Lincoln pulled into his cabinet all of the people who he had run again. Lincoln put personal feelings and political affiliations aside to focus on how to get the country through it's time of crisis. Barack Obama added "That has to be the approach one takes".

While on the Meet the Press panel, Ms. Goodwin suggested that Obama's statement seemed to hint that he would consider the notion. She quoted Lyndon Johnson who said "Better to have your enemies inside the tent pissing out, than outside the tent pissing in."

I have a different take on the subject (no, not the pissing part, the Hillary as VP part). I feel that all of those years of experience as First Lady that Hilary likes to tout (e.g. Bosnia) have prepared her to be an excellent choice for Secretary of State. She certainly has proven that she is tough enough to stare down the likes of Ahmadinejad.

As I wrote in my previous post, I still offer that an excellent choice for VP is retired two term Nebraska Senator and Republican, Chuck Hagel. Hagel could help Obama where is hurting the most, with working class whites. An Obama/Hagel ticket could even sway more conservative Republicans who perceive some of McCain's policies as too liberal.

Although Hagel is a decorated military veteran (serving side by side with his brother Tom as infantry squad leaders with the U.S. Army’s 9th Infantry Division and has two Purple Hearts) he is vehemently opposed to the war in Iraq.

The downside with an Obama/Hagel '08 ticket is that Democrats are left with the possibility of handing the presidency to an incubate Republican Vice President Hagel in 2016. He also goes against many of the ideals that make up the Democratic party, therefore any tie votes in he senate would be decided by a Republican.
