Obama With Kennedy, Biden With Clinton?

 from CBS NEWS

By John Bresnahan

(The Politico) Sens. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) walked into the speech like they haven’t seen each other in decades, which is funny after today’s excitement.

Sens. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Joe Biden (D-Del.) strode into together, chatting very amiably. Biden has not endorsed anyone yet.

One little Kennedy-Obama joke – A bunch of us old reporters spotted Kennedy this afternoon, after his Obama endorsement, and started giving him gruff. “Hey senator, were you on TV today?” “Hey senator, did you make any news today?” “Hey senator, what you been up to?” Kennedy laughed, but it got funnier when Sen. Patrick Leahy came by. Leahy has also endorsed Obama, but it didn’t get major airtime like Kennedy. So we started ribbing Leahy about that. “Hey senator, did Vermont public television cover your endorsement of Obama?” “Hey Sen. Leahy, have you endorsed yet?” You gotta love it.

    Anyone heard anything about Obama offering Ted Kennedy the VP slot in exchange for his endorsement?

    I think a Obama / Kucinich ticket would be awesome. Has anyone heard any talk about that?
