All bad things must come to an end

Hillary Clinton

It’s semi-official now. Whispers are that Hillary Clinton may soon throw in the presidential towel and join arms with Barack Obama as his running mate (so long as he doesn’t call her sweetie):

WASHINGTON – Hillary Rodham Clinton told colleagues Tuesday she would consider joining Barack Obama as his running mate, and advisers said she was withholding a formal departure from the race partly to use her remaining leverage to press for a spot on the ticket.

On a conference call with other lawmakers, Clinton, a New York senator, said she was willing to become Obama’s vice presidential nominee if it would help Democrats win the White House, according to a participant who spoke on condition of anonymity because this person was not authorized to speak for Clinton.

Way to keep a secret, Nancy.

Clinton’s remarks came in response to a question from Democratic Rep. Nydia Velazquez, who said she believed the best way for Obama to win key voting blocs, including Hispanics, would be for him to choose Clinton as his running mate.

“I am open to it,” Clinton replied, if it would help the party’s prospects in November.

“I deserve some time to get this right,” she said, even as the other lawmakers forcefully argued for her to press Obama to choose her as his running mate.

Clinton also told colleagues the delegate math was not there for her to overtake Obama, but that she wanted to take time to determine how to leave the race in a way that would best help Democrats.

So, get out your hankees Hillary supporters (and grab a daiquiri and a cigarette if you are Harriet Christian), the time is drawing nigh for your candidate’s gracious concession. Lo it is here, even at the gate…
