Politico reports in their Hillary Gets Stiffed that Senator Clinton was never vetted as a potential Obama VP.
“She was never vetted,” a Democratic official reported. “She was not asked for a single piece of paper. She and Senator Obama have never had a single conversation about it. How would he know if she’d take it?”Not only is this a snub to Senator Clinton and her supporters, but it again raises the question of Senator Obama's honesty. As he stated previously that Senator Clinton would be on anyone's VP shortlist.
The official also said Clinton never met with Obama’s vetting team of Eric Holder and Caroline Kennedy.
And the official said she was never asked for medical records or for any financial 2008 information about her or former President Bill Clinton. The last information the couple has disclosed about taxes and financial holdings was for 2007.
