(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.

um in case some of you havent been paying attn Dems lose either way. If hillary's not on the ticket you lose 25% of her voters in the General. If he isnt on the ticket you lose 10% + the rogue indies and reps pulling him through until the general.... hee hee hee
Oh, Nancy, what do you expect from the Clinton camp when so many Democrat insiders are siding with the new kid on the block; Kennedy, Dashel and Kerry are to blame. I agree with Hillary.
Do something as speaker of the house; your are giving women and and Democratic party a bad name.
She is true on this one. No joint ticket. I don't want the sleaze bag Obama on any ticket. She is wrong to think we are tolerating her support of Obama when CA voted overwhelmingly against her little prince.
CNN. Please post my comments and do not ignore
If Billary have half a brain as Pelosi, she would have left the campaign trail gracefully by now...because Obama is winning!
VOTE OBAMA – Let's put Billary out of her misery!!!
UNITED WE STAND!
Obama / Pelosi '08!
Jenny – You are almost old enough to be responsible for the stupid things you say.
obama/pelosi or pelosi/obama either way I am for it. denounce and reject hillarybilly.
She is right, Clinton can do better anyway by selecting a more experienced VP candidate.
All good Dems in Pa, for the sake of our Party, vote Obama and end HRC's reign of terror!
YOU ASKED OTHERS TO KEEP QUIET, YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO YOURSEF
Obama shouldn't even think of VP and take a back seat to Bill let alone getting so close to the slease factor. He shouldn't think of picking her for VP because that would put her a heart beat away.
I have been supporting Hillary until now. Game over.
I guess Obama really doesn't want change, just rhetoric
By the way, the 26 pledged candidates gained by Edwards. Can Sen. Edwards decide whom they will vote for at the convention? I guess Obama might offer him the vice presidency...
It's amazing how dense Obama fans have become. The moment Pennsylvania votes for Clinton and the re-vote primaries kick in Pelosi will endorse Clinton.
She said what the Clinton camp cannot say: Neither Barack or myself wants to be the Vice President.
The Media put them on the spot in the CNN debate held in LA. That was a joke of a question and got the obligatory "we'll see" in response.
Pelosi for president, 2012!!
OBAMA / PELOSI ...NOW THAT'S SOMETHING TO PONDER ON.
OBAMA 08 & 12
Could the response from the poster named "Jenny" in this comment section represent the Clinton campaign any better? I think not.
This shows a good evaluation of Hillary's experience and judgment: humiliate anyone you disagree strongly with in the process. Now to the facts:
Where is a single proof that Hillary can deal with a Foreign Policy crisis? I await your answer_____
Where is a single proof that Hillary can unite Republicans and democrats to implement real solutions for this nation?
I await your answer_____
Given that "past behaviors" best tell what the individual will do in the future. What is the hope the scandals will not become evident during another Clinton term?
I await your answer_____
Please be honest and give me actual data to each question
A vote for Clinton is a vote for McCain!
Hillary/McCain – so losers!!!
Knowing Nancy understands political risks – it's good to hear her clarity. This powerful positioning can be good for Obama!
JOE AND JENNY SOUND LIKE HILLARY CAMPAIGN WORKERS!
WHY ARE THEY POSTING ON THIS WEB?!
Obama all the way.........
It's clear now...it's one or the other.....I hope Americans choose Obama.....
From a Canadian...watching with great interest....
