Bill Clinton says joint ticket unstoppable

“CNN covers”:http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/03/08/bill-clinton-a-clinton-obama-ticket-would-be-unstoppable/ Bill Clinton’s comments about a joint Hillary-Obama ticket:

“I know that she has always been open to it, because she believes that if you can unite the energy and the new people that he’s brought in and the people in these vast swaths of small town and rural America that she’s carried overwhelmingly, if you had those two things together she thinks it’d be hard to beat.”

One of the things that makes this race pretty interesting is how Hillary consistently carries women and rural voters and Obama wins big with young voters and in cities. This is a strong argument for a joint ticket and will be critical if Democrats hope to compete in some of the traditionally Republican areas of the country.
