White House denies Obama-Clinton ticket in the works

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs is pouring cold water on the red-hot speculation - fueled by journalist Bob Woodward in a CNN interview - that President Barack Obama may create a so-called "dream ticket" of Obama-Clinton in his 2012 re-election battle.

"No one in the White House is discussing this as a possibility," Gibbs told CNN Wednesday morning.

The speculation that Obama may dump Vice President Joe Biden as his running mate and shift him over to the secretary of state job - moving current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the VP slot - was sparked by Woodward in an interview Tuesday night with CNN's Chief National Correspondent John King.

"It's on the table," Woodward said on "John King, USA." "Some of Hillary Clinton's advisers see it as a real possibility in 2012."
