Kaus talks up the Clinton VP idea...: "Bill Clinton Could Too Be Kerry's Running Mate: A few days ago, the Drudge Report highlighted a CNN Web page listing Bill Clinton as a possible vice-presidential candidate. CNN argued that
While federal law prohibits a person from seeking a third presidential term, the Constitution does not specify whether or not a former commander in chief can become vice president.
Drudge then effectively took it back by citing citing the text of the Twelfth Amendment, which says, in part, that 'no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.'"

If peopel are talking about Clinton as V.p. then two things are true. We are deep deep in the heart of the Presidential silly season where no story is too ludicrous to print. Or the Kerry campaign is in deep deep trouble. I suspect the former is more in play here.

I would a Clinton V.P run just for the debates and the Press conferences:

"President Clinton, how many interns do you plan on sleeping with as V.P.? Do you plan on interviewing them personally or will you have a pimp do that? Does the fact that you will have to be in the same city as Hillary most of the time discourage you from running for V.P.? Would your sex life be more exciting if you thought Hillary might barge into the room at any time? Would you and Hillary double date?"

Classic stuff.
