On NY 1, the Clinton-backing governor says of her:
“Generally a lot of politicians don’t like to put somebody like that on the ticket. You know rule one for the Vice President is make sure you never upstage the President, right?… Hillary Clinton in some ways couldn’t help but upstage, even if she was trying not to.”
Adds: “The Obama campaign would have to make strict rules… about what President Clinton could and could not do during the campaign.”
Also urges Clinton not to “bargain” with Obama about exiting the race: “You don’t bargain with the Presidential nominee. Even if you’re Hillary Clinton and you have 18 million votes, you don’t bargain.”
Plus: Clinton-supporting Rangel says she could have been “far more generous” during Tuesday speech after it was clear Obama clinched the nomination.
