Speculation of the Day: What's A Girl To Do?

All major news outlets are reporting that Hillary Clinton may concede the Democratic bid tonight. Nonetheless, there's no telling what could happen, as Clinton's campaigners are denying such reports:
Terry McAuliffe rejected as "100 percent" incorrect an Associated Press report that Clinton is preparing to acknowledge that Obama has the delegates to win the nomination Tuesday night as the five-month Democratic primary process comes to a close. (CNN.com)

Throughout these speculations, the idea of an Obama / Clinton bid are still set high in the hopes of those wanting to see a Democrat in the White House:
"In her speech tomorrow night, she [Hillary Clinton] will convey the message that first and foremost she is committed to Democrats winning in November and will do whatever she's asked to do," said a close friend and adviser of the New York senator and former first lady, who speaks with her regularly and is privy to her deliberations...That message has been conveyed to the Obama campaign via informal channels, according to Obama insiders who said the message is a signal that she would be willing to serve as Obama's vice president.

Hmm. A signal? Seems pretty arrogant of her. At this point Hillary should be begging for a role in the fall campaign after the dragging on of the primary process and the probable squandering of millions in campaign funds that might have saved for the general election.

Besides, if the goal is to win in November, Obama/Clinton seems like a bit too much overlap in appeal and too much coverage in terms of turn-offs. Sure, it's exciting to see them both on the ticket if you're a hard-core Democrat, but you give up a lot in "electibility."

just an aside, there's is probably no one I despise more in politics than Terry McAuliffe.

Before i can jump on the Obama bandwagon, i have one question "does Obama hate white people?" It seems to me that everyone else in his former Church does!
