HIllary for veep?

Everybody in the world except me seems to think that putting Hillary Clinton on the ticket would have helped Barack Obama win the presidency. I've never been able to figure that out. Outside of the extreme PUMAs, to whom does Hillary appeal? Basically to the same people Obama appeals to.

But she has huge negatives and always has. Not entirely her fault, but there it is. Does she really help Obama get the votes of independents, moderates and non-voters? I don't see it. What am I missing here?

Hillary would have done one thing for sure - she would have united the Republican Party.

I don't understand her appeal either - she's not a terribly good speaker, her views are centrist to right wing - but the liberals love her. It's emotional- for sure not intellectual.
