Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama on Tuesday dismissed the notion he might consider accepting the No. 2 spot on the 2008 ballot -- with Hillary Rodham Clinton at the top.As I recall, then-Senator John Edwards said the exact same thing when he ran in 2004 and where did he end up? The No. 2 spot on the Democratic ticket. Of course he is going to say that he's not running for VP and right now he's not. He thinks he has a pretty good shot at the No. 1 spot and he very well might. It really would have been news worthy if he had said anything other than what he said. This, however, is really not news.
"You don't run for second. I don't believe in that," the Illinois senator said on "Late Night with David Letterman."
