Carter says Obama/Clinton would be 'worst mistake'

(CNN) — A host of prominent Democrats are pushing for an Obama-Clinton unity ticket — but Jimmy Carter isn't one of them.

The former president, who publicly endorsed Barack Obama shortly before polls closed Tuesday in the final two primary states, told a London newspaper that a joint ticket between the two former rivals would be "the worst mistake that could be made."

"That would just accumulate the negative aspects of both candidates," Carter told the Guardian, saying that both candidates' vulnerabilities could overshadow that the ticket if the two team up together.

It is well known that Carter despises the Clinton's.

I happen to agree with him... Hillary will never seriously accept Obama as her boss.

Much as I like Hillary, I'm afraid Carter might be right. An Obama/Clinton ticket would unify the Democratic party, but it might not help in defeating the Republicans in the fall. To be absolutely calculating, Obama might need a guy, preferably southern and more conservative than he is, to help bring in conservative Democrats, liberal Republicans, and white males in general. It's absolutely imperative that the Democrats win this time, so Obama's choice of v.p. is very important.
