(Newser) – Hillary Clinton said today she was “open" to serving as Barack Obama’s running mate if it would help the party in November, the AP reports. She made the comment in a conference call with New York's congressional delegation. One congressman told the Buffalo News that “she brought it up, and it was re-affirmed by others.”

"She's expressing her general gratitude and beginning to set a conciliatory tone, the important thing being a Democratic win in November," said Rep. Brian Higgins.
