An organized effort to persuade Barack Obama to make Hillary Clinton his running mate has been shut down.
The two former Clinton staffers who started the group "Vote Both" concede it just isn't likely to happen. They cite his decision to offer Clinton a prime-time speaking role at the upcoming Democratic convention, as well as other indications from those close to both sides.
The Obama campaign still isn't commenting on the selection process, and a spokesman says the convention speaking schedule hasn't been set yet either.
But advisers for both say Clinton is likely to speak on the convention's second night, which is also 88 years to the day women earned the right to vote.
