Some politicos believe that Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama should work together instead of battling each other for the top spot on the Democratic ticket:

BARACK OBAMA

Assets: At 45, Obama is Clinton's junior by 14 years and may appeal to younger voters. 

Liabilities: His lack of experience-he's only been a U.S. Sentator for two years.

How Clinton can help him: Those looking for a familiar face in these uncertain times might find that the Clinton nostalgia factor is just the fix the country needs.

HILLARY CLINTON

Assets: As a former first lady and a senator for almost seven years, some feels she's paid her dues. And she's got superpopular Bill Clinton. 

Liabilities: Will America vote for a female presidential candidate? And her earlier stance authorizing military action in Iraq could cost her support.

How Obama can help her: An open critic of the war, he would be a fresh face and voice of reason. Plus, he has rock-star appeal. -Ashley Battle
