Jesse Jackson thinks Clinton should be the VP

“The Rev. Jesse Jackson said today that Sen. Hillary Clinton has made “a powerful case” for her candidacy for vice president.

Sen. Barack Obama should take his time choosing a running mate, Jackson said in an interview with the Associated Press today, but Clinton offers some major advantages.

“As he surveys the field, it must be someone who is compatible with him philosophically,
someone who is loyal to his agenda and someone who brings a constituency that matters and the capacity to become the next president, as the Constitution requires should disaster strike,” Jackson said, and Clinton meets those requirements. “She may not be the only one who does, but she certainly does.

“She starts with 18 million votes,” he said. “She starts having gained a following among Latinos and she has substantial support among African Americans. … Women will be looking to her place in the scheme of things.”
