Obama: I want Clinton to 'feel good about the process'

WOODBURN, Oregon (CNN) – Asked Friday if he might consider helping Hillary Clinton raise money to relieve some of her campaign debt, Barack Obama said Friday that he has not yet talked to his staff about the possibility, but added he thinks any of the also-rans for the Democratic nomination would be in a "strong position" to help the eventual nominee.

Pressed by reporters, the Illinois senator continued, "Obviously I'd want to have a broad range discussion with Sen. Clinton about how I could make her feel good about the process and have her on the team moving forward."

"But as I said, it's premature right now. She's still actively running, and we've still got business to do here in Oregon and other states."

Obama's comments came at a media availability at a taco restaurant in Woodburn, Oregon - his first gaggle with press since the Indiana and North Carolina primaries.
