(Townhall) According to author Edward Klein, Obama has put out feelers to
Hillary Clinton about accepting the VP spot on the ticket, but Hillary
has said no. In the exclusive video below, Klein tells Larry Kudlow why
Clinton is reluctant to take the number two spot.
Klein: Until just a couple of weeks ago, the White
House was putting out feelers to see if Hillary would accept the
vice presidential nod and replace Joe Biden. Bill Clinton was, I'm
told, urging his wife to accept the number two slot. He saw this as a
great launching pad for her for running in 2016. But then Hillary had
lunch in the White House a couple of weeks ago with Valerie
Jarrett, Michelle's best friend, senior adviser to both the First
Lady and the President.
Kudlow: Just about the biggest Lefty in the White House.
Klein: That's right. She told Valerie she would
not accept the vice president spot. The lunch was ostensibly about other
matters, but it came up. The vice presidential thing came up. Hillary
felt burned out after four years as secretary of state. But I'm told
there were more important reasons for her not accepting.
