(Newser) – Barack Obama told a donor this week that he may still invite Hillary Clinton on the ticket, but worries husband Bill might crowd the White House. "He said once you're a president, even if you're a former president, you're always a president," the donor told the Los Angeles Times. She said she pressed Obama because she believes the media and the Democratic Party have treated Clinton unfairly.
