Retired journalist Stephen P. Pizzo at News for Real imagines Hillary as Obama's No. 2. Or tries to. "And there she'd sit, as President Obama makes decisions he will likely only share with her after he's made them," he writes. "And once made VP Hillary Clinton would be expected to publicly embrace and promote President Obama's policies — as though they were her own — only they won't be. And, should those policies prove beneficial to the nation, Obama would get the credit, not Hillary. How do you imagine that will go down? With everything we now know about Hillary and Bill Clinton, imagine that for moment. (It will only take a moment.)"
Ann Althouse has advice for Obama: "Don't do it! I mean, talk to her, get her to behave well toward your campaign, but don't put her on the ticket." At right-leaning Wizbang, Kim Priestap says Obama is "asking for big trouble with a capital T" if he considers the idea.
In a long, thoughtful post at Obsidian Wings, hilzoy explains why Hillary should step down and points out what's missing in the vast media coverage of the primary: "any sense that Clinton herself is a responsible moral agent. People are writing about her as though she were a bomb that needed to be expertly defused, as opposed to a person who can govern her own life, and is responsible for her own choices."
