Obama-Clinton? Or Clinton-Obama?
Here´s a thought for you (turn away now if you can´t bear another word about these two). But if you´ve been wondering how they could ever decide who should head a joint ticket, if that´s what it eventually comes to, maybe they should try a job-swap.
When I was a Middle East correspondent in the mid-1980s, rival Israeli politicians Shimon Peres (who´s now Israel´s president) and Likud leader Yitzhak Shamir agreed to form a coalition administration on the basis that half way through its term, they´d swap jobs: the one who was Prime Minister would become Foreign Minister, and vice versa. No one thought for a moment that they´d go through with it, but they did.
So how about it? Hillary and Barack toss a coin, and the one who wins gets first try for the White House. If they win, he/she does two years as POTUS (president of the United States), and then hands over.
A White House job share. How´s that for "change"?
UPDATE: You thought I was joking? It's not a joke at all, according to this piece on slate.com
