Clinton camp pushes merger- on their terms

Here are a couple of quotations for your perusal:

a joint ticket "may be where this is headed. But of course we have to decide who is on the top of ticket. I think the people of Ohio very clearly said that it should be me." -Senator Clinton this week

"I know that she has always been open to it, because she believes that if you can unite the energy and the new people that he's brought in and the people in these vast swaths of small town and rural America that she's carried overwhelmingly, if you had those two things together she thinks it'd be hard to beat."  -Bill Clinton, today

Bill continues: in his view, Obama would win the "urban areas and the upscale voters" while Hillary Clinton would claim "the traditional rural areas that we lost when President Reagan was president. If you put those two things together, you'd have an almost unstoppable force."

Hmm, Senator and former president, there may be a grain of truth to your notions, but let's also point out the obvious. Namely, Senator Obama has got more delegates than you do at this point in time. Wouldn't it be more appropriate for he to be the one suggesting a merger, rather than yourselves? Especially since you are suggesting a merger on your terms- i.e. Obama for VP and Clintons return to the White House after a lengthy vacation?
