NY Times Examines Hillary's VP Hopes

The New York Times today examines the VP rumors. It's disheartening to read but had this:
Yet anyone who knows the Clintons is well aware that, at times, they come to politics with different motivations. Both of them want to return to the White House; Mrs. Clinton, of New York, also enjoys being a senator, while Mr. Clinton, according to associates, sees the vice presidency as perhaps her best path to becoming president someday if she loses the nominating fight. And Mr. Clinton has his own ideas about his wife’s best interests — even if she sometimes does not share them.
And this from Obama:
“Two weeks from now, we will know who wins the Democratic nomination,” Mr. Obama replied. “I don’t want to jump the gun. I will tell you though that my goal is to have the best possible government — and that means me winning. So I am very practical-minded guy.”
Well, I hope he's practical enough to see a. he doesn't need Hillary to win and b. once he does Bill will be a nightmare.
