Hillary is Ready .. Sort of
Update: From the Swamp: “Terry McAuliffe, the Clinton campaign chairman, interviewed on CNN today, called the report “100 percent incorrect.” but .. he also said publicly on The Today Show that once Obama has the number of delegates needed for the nomination that she will “call him the nominee”.
AP is reporting that Hillary is ready to concede that Obama has the necessary delegates to secure the nomination – tonight!
However, she is not quite going to officially end her campaign:
The advisers said Clinton has made a strategic decision to not formally end her campaign, giving her leverage to negotiate with Obama on various matters including a possible vice presidential nomination for her. She also wants to press him on issues he should focus on in the fall, such as health care.
This leaves me wondering if she has that VP position cinched already. Either way, it is a step in the right direction and the two would make a remarkable team.
