(CNN) - A so-called "dream ticket" scenario – the idea that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama could join forces this fall - may have gripped the imaginations of Democrats nationwide – but you can list House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a skeptic.
"I think that ticket either way is impossible," Pelosi told a New England Cable News reporter Tuesday, pointing to comments from Clinton and her campaign that implied Republican John McCain would make a better commander-in-chief than Obama.
"I think that the Clinton administration has fairly ruled that out by proclaiming that Senator McCain would be a better commander-in-Chief than Obama," she said.
She spoke bluntly about her view that a joint ticket was not in the cards, she said, because "I wanted to be sure I didn't leave any ambiguity."
The California Democrat, who has remained neutral throughout the party's primary process, said she remains an uncommitted superdelegate.

The Clintons are reaping the fruits for violating one of the cardinal rules of politics (i.e sleeping with the enemy)
Pelosi seems to be disenfranchised with Hillary Clinton....or am I reading too much into her statement?
Pelosi is absolutely right. Hillary is trying to ride on Obama's coattails, implying a vote for her is a vote for Obama as well.
Funny how Hillary can imply Obama will be her VP one moment, then she and her surrogates can call Obama an incompetent affirmative-action candidate the next. Desperate campaign tactics from a sleazy politician.
What does it tell you when Hillary supporters are insulting the highest ranking Democrat in the country?
Listen to yourselves!
Hillary supporters are actually insulting Nancy Pelosi!
The word "divisive" doesn't even begin to describe Hillary Clinton's politics.
Doesn't Senator Clinton believe in the "one man, one vote" principle affirmed by the United States Supreme Court?
Nancy Pelosi should be the face of women politics in America.
She would make a much better presidential candidate then Hillary.
Well, finnally there is someone out there who actually can think. As the democratic head, she sure has one by pointing out that hillary was dead wrong for selling out a fellow democrat rather then losing to Obama.
can we have a nation wide do-over primary and have Pelosi run instead?
FINALLY ! someone in the Democratic party are starting to come to their senses.
The Clintons are systematic and methodically destroying the party as we know it.
Edward would have been a lot better candidate than this Obama
Oh come on! Pelosi is a sour grape waiting to be mashed!
I don't think Pelosi likes anyone but herself!
Maybe looking for the VP hmmm!!!
The other side of Obama wouldn't be as formidable if he were black is that HIllary would not have been formidable if she weren't Bill Clinton's wife.Seriously, I for one cannot see any of the experince she claims.Yes, America is ready for a woman President but Hillary is not the one.She is too vindictive, to divicive, to inspire followers.Seriously, if Nancy Pelosi ran against Hillary,I would vote for Nancy.She has better judgment, more wisdom and can inspire people of all walks of life and gender to follow her.Hillary's victory would be on the account of Bill and not her own.The experince she has been claiming is slowiy dissipating.
New dream ticket: Clinton/McCain!
And to Cheyenne Branham – these are the facts! This is exactly what Speaker Pelosi said, quoted directly from the source. That is what I call a "fact". Where's the bias in reporting what Pelosi said?
What is all this fuel about? Is "beating the republicans not the ultimate goal? It is insane for Nancy to say so, because neither candidate can beat McCain without the support of the other. Not enough delgates left to win the nomination, unless one endorses the other
As far as I know, politicians do say whatever it takes to win, so while we "democrats" analyze and accuses each other, McCain is watching, laughing, and sipping on a champaign. Should we start making up and apologizing to each other for the sake of the "democratic ticket" I careless about who said what, by continuing the drama, we are endorsing a McCain ticket.
And the Madame Speaker has Spoken... thank you Nancy P..
Hillary needs to stand down,.. Hillary is bad for Amercian progress.
I find it puzzling that weeks ago, Hillary changed her campaign, stating that Barack Obama does not have the wisdom or experience to run this country but she wants him as a running mate? But on the bright side, this is a good ploy to bring in the independent and/or undecided votes. With a Clinton/Obama ticket, they can have the best of both worlds (with emphasis on Clinton name being first).
I am tired of it being said that because I am woman I HAVE to vote for Hillary Clinton. Let me say that I can't wait for the day there is a woman president. But as I want the Presidency to go the right man I also want it to go to the right woman and Hillary is NOT the right woman for the job.
A big Amen to what Shannon Shiflett said at 4:04!! So true.
If Obama gets the nomination I don't want Hilary as VP either.So I can vote McCain without regret(of course I vote democrat only if Hillary is on the ballot).I know CNN will not post this comment!
If this falls apart it is also leaders of our party who are not loyal to any one and have played a great roll in thsi mess
Cindy from Harrisburg -
It's a slap in the face to intelligent women everywhere when women like you state that you are voting for Clinton because she's a women, or everyone's being so unfair to her.
You should be voting based on the issues, not the gender.
Catch up to the 21st century, will you!!!
Be warned, if Obama wins you'll be one of the first to go because you've done NOTHING in your new job.
If the Dream Ticket happen "We should consider ourself lucky". This is the only way to beat McCain. I didn't understand how Pelosi can be dumber than Obama
I get the feeling that the Democratic leadership is going to step in very soon to end this mess before the division gets worse, and particularly before they have to waste time and money in Michigan and Florida.
With Hillary being behind and with no way for her to catch up except by cheating, they'll tell her that it is time to call it quits for the good of the Democratic party and the nation as a whole.
