It's the question that's on many people's minds. What will Hillary Clinton do now? The former first lady has conceded defeat. Some suggest she could be in the running for a vice presidential nod.

And while some say Obama may need Clinton on the ticket to win important battleground states,

"I don't think it's essential to have any opponent on your ticket as a vice presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton in particular, even Bill Richardson or John Edwards who also ran this cycle to do well in some of the regions where those candidates did well also," said Smyth.

But it's a decision that will have to be made soon with John McCain and Republicans already getting a head start in the race for the White House.

"McCain has had several months of sort of just running on his own without a dedicated opponent. He's used that time fairly wisely for the most part, fundraising, and putting out points why he's the candidate the voter's should choose," said Smyth.

Giving Democrats little time to unite and decide which platforms are most important to them.
