Obama: "I'm Not Running For Vice President"

March 10, 2008

"I'm not running for vice president. I'm running for President of the United States of America," said Barack Obama, (D) Presidential Candidate.

"I'm looking forward to getting the nomination. And it's premature to talk about whoever might be on who's ticket, but I do believe i'm ready to serve on day one," said Hillary Clinton, (D) Presidential Candidate.

Clinton is focusing on a bigger prize ahead next month, Pennsylvania.
She still stands to pick up 'some' delegates, even if Obama wins Mississippi.

Both sides know, the superdelegates are watching closely. More than 300 of them haven't endorsed either candidate. Clinton's recent victories may have convinced some of them to hold off on making a choice until after the primaries.

Democrats are now raising money for a do-over in Florida and Michigan. Both states were stripped of their delegates for moving up their primaries. With an unexpectedly close race voters may get to vote again.

"Every voter gets a ballot in the mail. It's comprehensive. You get to vote if you're in Iraq or a nursing home, it's not a bad way to do this," said Democratic Natinal Committee Chairman Howard Dean.

A mail-in vote would cost around $6 million dollars. But neither the states
nor the party want to pay for it and fundraising for a do-over has just
begun.
