Hillary denies talks of VP 'deal' with Obama

Sen Hillary Rodham Clinton said her campaign has had no discussions with Barack Obama's aides about her possibly becoming his vice presidential running mate.
Clinton called such reports "flatly untrue," in an interview today with the Sioux Falls Argus Leader editorial board, adding that she is not planning any such discussions.
Asked if her campaign had any discussions with the Obama campaign about her possibly bowing out in exchange for the vice president slot, Hillary Clinton said: "It is flatly untrue and it is not anything I'm entertaining. It is nothing I have planned and it is nothing I am prepared to engage in. I am still vigorously campaigning."
The Obama campaign also dismissed reports that there were talks going on between the two campaigns about putting Clinton on the ticket.
Obama has an almost 200-delegate lead over Hillary Clinton and is just 56 delegates short of the number needed to clinch the Democratic Party's nomination, making Clinton's goal of catching him more difficult by the day. The primaries end June 3.
Hillary Clinton spent the day campaigning in South Dakota, which holds one of two June 3 primaries. At stake are 15 delegates. Recent reports suggested she may be discussing ways to end her campaign by being offered the vice presidential slot underneath Obama, but she rejected that and said she suspected the talk was coming from Obama aides.
"I would look to the camp of my opponent for the source of these stories," she said. "People have been trying to push me out of this ever since Iowa.”
