All the signs are that Hillary's goose has been cooked and she is going to withdraw from the race to be the Democratic nominee, leaving the field clear for Obama to go head to balding head with the old guy the Reps have nominated.
Something that has been whispered before and is being mentioned a little more loudly now is Hillary stepping up to become Obama's number 2 in the so called 'Dream-Ticket'.
On the face of it, it does seem ideal. The huge crowds that have been turning out to vote and show their support has been record breaking and Clinton's victories in states along the way demonstrate her strength and appeal among blue collar workers and women which could only benefit Obama as he takes on McCain.
These gains must be weighed up against the potential drawbacks, of which there are plenty.
For a man who has ran his campaign on change in the White House, it would seem an odd move for Obama to then run with one of the two families who have dominated the hot seat for the past two decades.
Then there is the problem of Bill who was not so subtly told to shut his big fat yap after he was blamed for Hillary's crash in North Carolina. Could Obama really trust him to not become a liability for him as he evidently was for his wife and after some of her remarks aimed at Obama during the campaign, could she drag his whole campaign to the bitter levels that he has managed to stay above so far?
What cannot be avoided is the intensity of support each set of followers has for Obama and Hillary, if the Democrats want to unify and have all these voters going Democrat in November, there's no better way than to have Hillary as the Vice Presidential nominee.
Whether Obama is willing to take the gamble on Hillary or choose someone else to run with him is something for him to mull over, but the so called 'Dream Ticket' can sweep the Democrats to power or just as easily blow up in their faces.
