Clinton dials back vice presidency talk
Hillary Clinton's campaign is ratecheting down the VP talk following her private meeting with Barack Obama. This really could mean anything. It could mean that Obama told her flat out he will not take her on as the VP under any circumstance, or it could mean that he told her she's got it and so she no longer has to push for it.
Hillary Rodham Clinton backed away Thursday from efforts to push her into the No. 2 slot on the Democratic ticket with Barack Obama, as the two met privately to discuss ways to unify the party for the fall campaign.
Obama was stumping in Virginia, a Republican-leaning state he hopes to capture in November, when Clinton's campaign issued a statement distancing the New York senator from any lobbying efforts on her behalf.
