Ya Win Some, Ya Lose Some: Obama and Hillary Share the Love

Clinton-Obama? Or Make That Obama-Clinton? Wall Street Journal
Clinton won primaries in Texas, Ohio and Rhode Island, halting Obama’s winning streak. Obama won in Vermont. In Texas, Democratic party officials plan to resume counting caucus results today after they’d suspended their count around 2 a.m. EST. Obama was the preferred candidate of 54% of caucus-goers in the handful of caucuses reporting.
It is no secret to the less than numb observer that Hillary is shooting to be VP. Once this is ratified by the top Dem dogs, half of the world will cheer. The rest will poke away at the ebbing question, "Are these two together too liberal for today's America?"

In other words, I think John McCain will see new support from moderates who might have supported just Hillary, or just Obama and a more conservative running mate. Together, an Obama-Hillary team might concern them on key issues like support in Iraq, abortion and homosexual issues (gay marriage and so forth).
