Can AOL securely authenticate its own users?

On the subject of OpenID and Phishing, I wonder if AOL's site is able to authenticate users of its ISP service without them entering username/password credentials. It'd be really cool if AOL users would just be “magically” authenticated when they make use of their new OpenID identifiers, as this would not only help to remedy the phishing concerns but also be really convenient for users.
