I'm not sure about that. That last primary was downright nasty. Maybe the base of the GOP would stand up for him, but the right wing won't. Plus, he's getting old. Secretary of State for eight years is (IMO) bigger than VP as far as the historic connotations go. He could make a big impact on the world, upgrade the standing of the U.S. in the world, help destroy terrorism, help re-unite Americans, and then ride off into the sunset.
