Aide: Clinton not being vetted for VP

WASHINGTON, July 11 (UPI) -- A former top campaign aide to U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton said she has not been asked to undergo vetting as a possible vice presidential candidate.

Howard Wolfson, who served as Clinton's communications director, told Fox News he has seen no sign that Barack Obama, now the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, is considering Clinton. But he said that does not necessarily mean the New York Democrat is out of the running.

"She's been vetted now for a long time -- she's got 30 years of taxes in the public record and financial disclosure forms. She ran for president for 18 months and every news organization in America had multiple teams of reporters look at all aspects at her career and her biography," Wolfson said.

The Obama campaign has approached other potential vice presidential candidates, CNN reported. They include U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., who had his own short-lived presidential campaign. Dodd said that the Obama staff has requested "a lot of stuff."
