I find it highly amusing

Hillary Clinton has the nerve to suggest her intentions to stay in the race were backed by the possibility that there could be an assassination, and then wants Obama to trust her with the VP position??? The position the Presidency defaults to in event the that the president dies?

Highly, highly amusing.

What a bitch.

The party is likely to push Hilary into the VP candidacy, if only to consolidate campaign $$$

I've been expecting this for a few months now, and I'd be surprised if it doesn't happen

What campaign money? From what I understand her campaign is in debt.

Nope... check the math:

She still comes out ahead by $10,185,560 after you adjust for her remaining campaign cash minus her campaign debts

It isn't a lot in presidential campaign money terms... but it'd be enough for the party to want to utilize

“Today, as I suspend my campaign, I congratulate him on the victory he has won and the extraordinary race he has run. I endorse him and throw my full support behind him.”(link)

'Suspend'? More nonsense.

I guess I'm just saying that if I were Barack Obama, I wouldn't put her on my ticket if I valued my life.
