Iowa Progress: Clinton/Vilsack 2008?:

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Progress

The rumors are going around, and Vilsack is set to appear with Hillary in DC this week at a Democratic Governors Association press conference.

Here's how the Register reports it: Some pundits as well as Democratic activists have suggested Vilsack would be a good fit on a ticket with Clinton as presidential nominee. Both are active in the centrist Democratic Leadership Council, and both have insisted they will not demand a specific date for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.

A few days back, Hotline proposed some theories about the role Hillary could play in the race for the '08 Democratic nomination.

Theory 1: ...unless she either doesn't run or appears very vulnerable early on, one theory of the case holds that they will spend their time cozying up to her and tearing into each other. (Grover Norquist endorses that theory, too.) At least in part, they'll try to use the primaries to audition for the general election.
