Obama has private meeting with Clinton


Speculation over an Obama-Clinton ticket for the US presidential election has intensified with news the erstwhile rivals met privately last night. Earlier likely Democratic candidate Barack Obama attended a rally in Virginia where, once again, he paid tribute to the New York senator.

“An historic campaign that involved outstanding candidates, none more outstanding than Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. I congratulate her on her great achievement and I know I’m a better candidate because I ran against her,” he said.

Whether his warm words will translate into a job offer remains to be seen.

The meeting was reportedly initiated by Clinton after a series of talks between their aides. She has distanced herself from efforts from supporters to convince Obama she’s the right person, saying the choice is up to him.
