Longtime FOBs and Arkies who helped Bill Clinton win in 1992 say that President Obama will need Hillary Clinton on the ticket as vice president to win re-election. They shrug off stories that she is only suited to be secretary of state. "She's getting tired of traveling," a Clinton loyalist tells our Suzi Parker. "With her on the ticket, Obama might win Arkansas. He'll need every state." Bubba's pals say the Clintons' passion for the Democratic Party has the former first couple focused on helping Obama win a second term no matter what their role. Win or lose, of course, it would set up Hillary for a 2016 bid.
