Barack Obama met privately with Hillary Rodham Clinton, a likely vice presidential candidate, as the Democratic nominee-in-waiting sought to unite his fractured party against Republican John McCain in November.

One of her top supporters, fellow New York senator Charles Schumer, said Friday that Clinton would accept the No. 2 spot.

“She has said if Senator Obama should want her to be vice president and thinks it would be best for the ticket, she will serve, she will accept that. But on the other hand if he chooses someone else she will work just as hard for the party in November,” Schumer, Clinton’s New York colleague in the Senate, told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
