All the major news outlets are now reporting that she will drop out and endorse Obama on Friday. If she endorses him enthusiatically it will really help unite the party.

Sen. Hillary Clinton will drop out of the presidential race on Friday, ending her historic bid for the White House and ceding the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama

She is not dropping out, she is "suspending her campaign” There is a big difference. If she drops out she loses all rights to her votes and delegates, if she suspends they must post them at the convention and it still gives her rights to fight for votes taken from her on Michigan and Florida. At the convention super delegates still can vote for her and some will.

And the best part of all, if Obama or his wife says or does anything racist and or just flat stupid and they are exposed, with a cute little cackle she can step right into the driver seat.

NONE of the super delegates have committed, they can’t commit to anyone till they vote at the convention. Obama will need to duct tape the mouth of his wife and both of his pastors till that vote happens.

So anyways, NO she is not quitting, she is not giving up she is ONLY suspending her campaign. She also has the right to still collect money till then too.

Now I get it and it makes more sense now. This really will be interesting. Someday, I will be rocking in my rocker talking to my grandchild saying "Yesiree bob, I can recollect the big race between Obama and Hillary running for Prez. What a hootenanny!"

I learned something new that I had not known. I am going to assume it is true with out research because I trust the source enough.

John Zogby was being interviewed and he was asked if Obama would pick Hillary for VP. Zogby answered by saying it was not as much Obama's choice as it is the Super Delegates. He sited a previous election where the supers picked the vice. He said though usually you give the person their pick, the supers do have the right pick and the way the VP is elected is by the super delegates at the convention.

Its possible Zogby did not know what he was talking about but he is pretty smart on this stuff, so don’t hold me to it.

Wouldn't it be somethin' if he picked Caroline Kennedy?

That would be something. It would be a hard ticket to beat.

The only thing I think could back fire with it is he keeps saying
Change change, turn the page. No more politics of old.

That is the biggest reason he shouldn’t pick Clinton, it counters his "message"

Kennedy in some ways could do the same, but it might ease the pain of some Hillary supporters having a woman on the ticket.
