AP: Clinton open to being VP candidate
WASHINGTON. - Hillary Rodham Clinton has told New York lawmakers she's open to being Barack Obama's vice presidential candidate.
Clinton made the comment on a conference call with other New York lawmakers today, according a participant on the call.
The senator's remarks came in response to a question from Democratic Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez who said she believed the best way for Obama to win over key voting blocs, including Hispanics, would be for him to choose Clinton as his running mate.
"I am open to it," Clinton replied, if it would help the party's prospects in November.
