NEW YORK (CNN) – Sen. Hillary Clinton is poised to deliver a message Tuesday "that she will do whatever it takes" to put a Democrat in the White House - a message that Barack Obama insiders say indicates she would accept an offer to be Obama's running mate if asked.
"In her speech tomorrow night, she will convey the message that first and foremost she is committed to Democrats winning in November and will do whatever she's asked to do," a close friend and adviser of the former first lady, who speaks with her regularly and is privy to her deliberations, told CNN Monday.
"She will do whatever it takes to bring the party together to win and whatever is asked of her to make sure the Republicans are defeated."
That message has been conveyed to the Obama campaign via informal channels, according to Obama insiders who said the message is a signal that she would be willing to serve as his vice president.
Both the Clinton and Obama campaigns told CNN that there have been no formal discussions between the campaigns.
Obama insiders are split over whether considering Clinton to be on the ticket is a good idea.
I sure hope he doesn't. She'll bring more harm than good – she is way to polarizing. My father said he would even vote McCain over Hillary even in a VP spot and I know many other think that.
Obama has the wisdom to pick someone better.
thats the most hypocrite thing ive ever heard..The person that is dividing the party is also the one that is saying she will do anything to unite it. If she really cared about the party she would of droped out the race 2 months ago.
I might consider voting for Obama if Hillary was on the ticket.
after all the damage she's done to the party and her desperate attacks to try to weaken Obama, she realized she only shot herself in the foot over and over. Now, if she's in the ticket, that's a landslide win for the republicans because Hellary's lies shows lack of integrity and people do NOT vote for LIER.
There is no way Clinton is going to be nominated as his VP. In fact, she won't be part of any cabinet position.
This is yet another "entitlement" that her and supporters think she deserves.
This is getting old.
Please Hillary you have done enough damage to Sen. Obama. Please just go away and take your husband with you.
By the way Obama supporters we owe Bill Clinton a thank you. He made this ALL possible. Each time he opened his unprofessional mouth-Obama reaped more SD's and voters. We thank you. Now take your unprofessional remarks and your unprofessional wife and her unprofessional supporters and GO AWAY! Any of HRC's REAL democratic supporters who are willing to vote based on the issues we welcome you and you are truly professional democrats.
"I'm ready for my crown now."
Forget it Hillary. We don't have a crown, but here's a broom for you, now go fly away, you selfish, self-centered, pandering loser.
Senator Obama would be taking a step back if she is his VP. I would worry about his safety because of some of the statements she made. This lady is not to be trusted in no shape, form, or fashion. He is about change and with her it would be the same old system.
It's entirely up to the 2 of them. I have my own opinion obviously (noooo way Jose! not after that RFK gaff!), but I will respect their decision... and will still vote for that ticket over anything the Republicans put up.
no no no clintons. Clintons will make sure obama get killed i promise you. Clintons are evil. No clintons on the ticket.
Unacceptable. The Clinton Era is over. There are better persons more qualified for VP than this crazy woman, Obama owes her NOTHING.
Anybody for VP, but Clinton! Don't trust HER, Barack!
Pulleeeeeze! Does anyone really think that Obama is stupid enough to take Hillary on the ticket?! Give me a break! She will bring out more anti-Clinton haters on the right than she will add to the ticket!
And Obama's message of change will become a joke! Dream on HIllary supporters – she will NOT be the veep! No way!
No more Clintons – No more Bush!!!
Obama/Kathleen Sebelius '08
Time to turn the page, YES WE CAN. GO Obama!
The dream ticket is the only way to go. Obama/Clinton ( the black vote, white vote, hispanic vote, young vote, old vote ) ready to take back the white house!
We can either live and forgive and forget. or continued divided. This also goes to show you that Obama's point about talking to your enemies is an example that we can all forgive the Clinton's and unite with their supporters to defeat the real enemy. And Democrats should stick together. So I will vote for an Obama – Clinton..
Hillary would never except the VP to Obama. Its either 1st place for her or no place. She does not play second fiddle to anyone.
Obama is smart enough to realize that having her on the ticket would end up with her wanting to be in the spot light more than him. She would destroy his chance at the presidency with her own ego.
No way! Obama should not consider HC as a VP. Why should HC consider being a VP for an inexperience President and one who will not be ready at 3am. Plenty of qualified candidates besides the Clintons.
No more Clintons!
For me, the truth is either Democrat is better than McCain. Let's not forget that. I voted for Obama but I can support Clinton too. This whole silly infighting has got to stop. Hillary and Barack are both OK.
Why would you pick someone that has from the beginning she is more qualified to be president...does that make any sense. How can the vp be better than the pres...
the democratic party is the party of liars,cheaters and thieves.After all this I still would not vote dem, not even with Hillary as vp,
JUST SAY NO ,HILLARY!!!
No Clinton for VP. We need CHANGE!
Who is going to vote in Florida Democrats in November 4?
Just say no, to Clintons.
Let's go OBAMA!
