Hillary as Obama's VP running mate: 'A hell of an idea'

Taegan Goodard's Political Insider site pulls together some of the pundits' views on the prospects of Hillary Clinton as Vice Presidential running mate of Barack Obama.

I like this one from former adviser to Bill Clinton, Dick Morris, writing in The Hill, which beautifully sums up the scenario:

It would be an act of terminal insanity for Barack Obama to name Hillary Clinton as his vice presidential candidate. It would not help him get elected, it would drag all the Clinton controversies into the general election, and having her down the hall in the West Wing would be a recipe for disaster, dissension and civil war. Other than that, it's a hell of an idea!
