“Well, you know, I think its premature. You wont see me as a vice presidential candidate — you know, Im running for president. We have won twice as many states as Senator Clinton, and have a higher popular vote, and I think we can maintain our delegate count.”
Parse it carefully. He doesn’t say he won’t accept the vice presidency. He says it’s premature. He says he’s running for president. He says he’s ahead of hillary in the popular vote and number of states. He says he has more delegates than she does and thinks he can maintain that.
He does NOT say he will never accept a VP slot.
What if Hillary wins the nom and Mc Lain Picks Obama
Exactly. He’d be an idiot to say, at this point, Yes I would accept being second fiddle to Hillary. That would be a diminishing statement to make, at a point where he is ahead in the race. He did not see he would not accept the VP slot ever — he just said it’s premature to talk about that now. Nothing else to see here, folks, move along.
