Fearless Prediction: Obama-Hillary deal

Sometime in the next couple of weeks Obama and Hillary will make a deal whereby she drops out and he names her as his VP pick. You read it here first!

I predict it'll never happen. (1) Hillary wants the top slot too much. (2) Obama doesn't need her. (3) She wouldn't make a good VP; she's not on his message. (4) Hillary as VP brings almost all the same negatives as Hillary as POTUS; Republicans will come out from the woodwork to vote against her.

My guess is Obama picks a female governor from a red state, like Kansas or Arizona. That has all the upsides of Hillary as VP, none of the downsides, and additional upsides (executive experience, moves the ticket to the center).

That's what I would have said. I have reasons for changing my mind now. Check back with me in a couple weeks and we'll see if I was a true or false prophet!
