Strickland says he would decline Obama VP spot

COLUMBUS, Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland says he s not interested in being vice president, no matter which candidate asks.

The first-term governor has been emphatic he has no interest in being his Democratic Party s vice presidential nominee. His favorite candidate, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, faces a tough route to the nomination, but Strickland says he remains committed to her and to staying off the ticket.

In recent days, Strickland s name has been floated as a potential running mate for Clinton rival Barack Obama. Strickland says the speculation is a creation of the media.

Strickland worked hard for Clinton s primary victory in Ohio in March. He says she should stay in the race, despite pressure to exit. He has doubts, but still thinks there s a chance she could beat Obama.
