Pelosi: "Dream Ticket" Of Obama And Clinton "Impossible"

At her weekly press conference today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi weighed in on the possibility of a so-called Democratic "dream ticket" featuring both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

The verdict? Such a union simply isn't "politically feasible," Pelosi said. She called an Obama/Clinton or Clinton/Obama ticket "impossible."

Asked to elaborate, Pelosi said it was "up to [the press] to interpret" her comments. But she said they grew out of "a lifetime of political gut."

Pelosi also said there would be a "dream ticket" of Democrats – just not one involving the two frontrunners.

"Take it from me, that won't be the ticket," she said.
