NEW YORK (CNN) – With Barack Obama on the verge of securing enough delegates to become the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, a New York newspaper signaled it will use its editorial page Wednesday to urge him to pick rival Hillary Clinton as his running mate.

The New York Observer informed the media Tuesday evening of its intention to endorse Clinton to be Obama’s vice presidential pick. Prior to the New York primary on February 5, the newspaper threw its support behind Obama to be the Democratic presidential nominee.

    How can Obama have Clinton on his ticket while the Republicans are using HER comments in ads against him? It isn't up to anyone else who the winner picks and people and the media should let things settle down and quit pandering to the Clintons..

    The NYT would be more helpful if it ran ads for donations to pay off the debts she has due to her excesses and squandering donations early in the race..

    This would be a very bad move on their part if Obama picks her to be the VP.

    Probably because they don't want her to be Gov. of their state

    I thought that he was too unelectable and unfit? Now watch her and her supporters tell everyone that he needs her to be vp. If Obama was smart,
    he would run as far away from this woman as possible. Who needs who
    now?

    Do we need to hear about the Clintons in the news for four more years?

    I will kiss Obama goodbye if Hillary is on his ticket.
    Neither we nor Obama should take such a risk.

    President McCain 2009!!!
    He may be old, but we can concentrate on the issues rather than this Clinton soap opera and laughing stock around the 'free' world.

    I honestly think she would be a good pick for VP. Although many think that she wouldn't. We need to have the best chance possible to win in November.

  22. NoHitwomanHillaryOnVpTicket

    Why should he pick her... she has been vicious, racist, etc during this entire campain. the media is lying.... I don't know anyone that supports Obama that wants her. And what about that so called list of folks who died affiliated with and and Bill. Get REAL. Obama, please don't choose her... SHE DOES NOT DESERVE IT. She thinks cause she is white she deserves it. Not the case.

  23. Bah.

    This whole race has been a crock. Hillary was robbed and if I were Obama's opponent, I'd watch my back..he's klnown for eliminating them before the vote even goes to ballot. Bullocks.

    Obama only needs 12 more superdelegates to win tonight!

    We don't want Hillary on our ticket!

    Go Obama!

    I think Obama earned the right to pick his running mate. He will look who he can work with, complements him, will help his cause and who he can trust. I am very doubtful (maybe just hopeful) that this will not be Hillary Clinton!
    The Clintons would try to steal the show and that's absolutely not what this country needs!!
