“If anyone should be suggesting vice presidential candidates, it should be him, Obama said.
“‘With all due respect. I won twice as many states as Sen. Clinton. I’ve won more of the popular vote than Sen. Clinton. I have more delegates than Sen. Clinton. So, I don’t know how somebody who’s in second place is offering vice presidency to the person who’s in first place,’ he said.
“Obama also said the Clinton campaign was ‘hoodwinking’ voters when it suggested he was not ready to be president while also floating the possibility of a joint Clinton-Obama ticket.
‘I don’t understand,’ he said. ‘If I’m not ready, how is it that you think I should be such a great vice president?'”

UPDATE: The NYC tabs do a nice job sometimes, but there’s no one like the Brits for snappy headlines, e.g., Obama spurns double ticket hints, from the Beeb.
