Through blatant and utter self-interest. Obama knows he could jump-frog the "experience" issue, which will keep him from becoming President, by becoming VP, and he knows he might even get lucky if Hillary croaks or gets shot by some RWNJ. Hillary knows she doesn't have a hope in hell of winning without him on the ticket, between the two of them they attract every Dem voting bloc. He's got the charisma, she's got the cash. And not only that, you know how those shines love old white women. It's a natural.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
