Newt: It’ll be Clinton-Obama

Newt Gingrich is predicting a Clinton-Obama ticket for the Dems, saying, “I think that either Mayor Giuliani or Governor Romney or Senator Thompson would be a very formidable opponent for what I expect will be a Clinton-Obama ticket, and I think that there’s a possibility that will work.”

Right now, I’d prefer Gore-Clinton. Or Clinton-Edwards. Or Clinton-Bloomberg. And after Obama’s calling Clinton “Bush-Cheney lite” last week, it seems like it’d be hard for him to backpedal from that to accept second billing from her. Of course, pols never have a problem flipping on any issue, so anything’s possible.
