The news media is saying it won't happen. They've practically given up on Hillary Clinton's odds of becoming the next Vice President despite the fact that online bookies had her as the favorite right after Barack Obama became the Democratic candidate.

She's typically been the second most likely choice among odds makers after whomever was hot at the moment (this week it was Joe Biden).

Politico.com all but dispelled the possibilities that Clinton would become Senator Obama's running mate on Friday:

"She was never vetted," a Democratic official reported. "She was not asked for a single piece of paper. She and Senator Obama have never had a single conversation about it. How would he know if she'd take it?"

The official also said Clinton never met with Obama's vetting team of Eric Holder and Caroline Kennedy.

And the official said she was never asked for medical records or for any financial 2008 information about her or former President Bill Clinton. The last information the couple has disclosed about taxes and financial holdings was for 2007.

Just two weeks ago, these were the odds being offered by BetUS.com:

Hillary Clinton 8/1 Bill Richardson 10/1 Ted Strickland 50/1 Kathleen Sebelius 7/1 Evan Bayh 7/5 Wesley Clark 15/1 Joseph Biden 13/2 Christopher Dodd 8/1 Jim Webb 40/1 Michael Bloomberg 45/1 Al Gore 25/1 Mark Warner 25/1 Janet Napolitano 35/1 Ed Rendell 25/1 Sam Nunn 18/1 Tim Kaine 7/5 Brian Schweitzer 30/1

BetUS.com is offering betting on each of the state electoral colleges.
