Senator Nelson: Dont Rule Hillary Out

June 16th, 2008 by flanews

US Senator Bill Nelson says Barrack Obama should pick Senator Hillary Clinton as his running-mate. Senator Nelson spoke to reporters at his Tallahassee office Monday. Nelson was a Clinton supporter. Now hes backing Barack but says if Barack is down in the national polls he should pick Hillary for V. P. to increases his chances. Nelson said the country will know very soon whether or not Hillary will be on the ticket.

Youll know in about the next two and a half weeks, because if Obama bumps us, I think its less likely, in the national polls if he bumps up, its less likely that he picks Clinton. If he rises slightly or stays the same theres a greater likely hood that hell pick Clinton, said Nelson.

Nelson also said Obama would need Clinton in order to carry Florida. Recent polls show Obama losing to McCain.
