Personal Aside: The Clintons Will Get Even with ObamaCount on It To E. A., a Message
Obama leaders believe that there is a solution to the impasse with Hillary Clinton that will not tie up the convention in knots. For a glimmer, get thee over to The Chicago Daily Observer and read Don Rose. His solution brilliant workmanlike is likely to be employed. The Democratic party simply cannot afford and will not try to alienate its huge African American constituencynot from a purely pragmatic angle, should it. You think theyd be nutty enough to have super-delegates reject a charismatic African American senator in order to run Bill Clintons wife? Give me a break.
But the nomination of Obama will not be the last act. The Clintons play hard-ball. Hillary will make a few obligatory speeches in behalf of the nominee but will go about her own political business. Bill is the one to watch. There already have been subtle overtures to McCain by emissaries of the Clintons. The sole interest of the Clintons after Obama is nominated is to have McCain win. He will be 72 on inauguration day, 76 for reelection. That will be Hillarys golden chance. She will be 64not too old at all to run. There is some credence to think that she may run and get elected Governor of New York in 2010, two years before the next presidential election. David Patterson has confessed to everything except jaywalking and is soiled merchandise. Andrew Cuomo should be ripe to be rolled.
As how to help McCain: there are many-many ways Bill Clinton can subvert the Obama campaign and tie in to the McCain effort without being tagged or found out.
