Clinton: Ticket With Obama May Be "Where This Is Headed"

Still glowing from her big wins in Ohio and Texas, Hillary Clinton made some news this morning on CBS's The Early Show when she suggested that a Clinton/Obama general election ticket was a real possibility.

Co-anchor Harry Smith fueled the flames of speculation when he said to Clinton, "We talked to a lot of people in Ohio who said there really isn't that significant a difference between you two, and they'd like to see you both on the ticket."

It was a question the New York senator could have easily sidestepped. But she chose to answer it head on.

"Well, that may, you know, be where this is headed," Clinton said. "But of course, we have to decide who's on the top of the ticket, and I think that the people of Ohio very clearly said that it should be me."

The prospect of a Clinton/Obama ticket has been suggested countless times by pundits and Democratic voters who are torn between the two superstar candidates. And while Clinton and Obama have both alluded to the possibility of joining forces in the past, this seems to be the first time that either has left the door so wide open.
