  •  Just because she's good doesn't mean she fits (5+ / 0-)

    The office of the Vice Presidency is being selected this year based on governance and personality - not who can rack up the most votes or the most money.  Sen. Clinton certainly can govern, however, her personality is far off from Sen. Obama's message.

    Like it or not, she has a long history of corruption allegations (not all of which were invented by the Right Wing Attack Machine) and proven deceit of the American Public.  She is an amazing, historical politician and an inspiration to millions of Americans - male and female.

    However, her image as a fighter and a polarizer conflicts with Obama's intention of being a compromiser and uniter.  

    Having the Clinton name attached to the Obama administration would make compromise and national unity very difficult given the large amount of polarizing baggage she and her husband carry with them.  Yes, it's unfair.  Unfortunately, it's how things are right now.  You pay what you owe.
