  •  To Hillary Clinton: (8+ / 0-)

    Hillary Clinton, the reason you gave reporters for staying in this primary race is because your are concerned that something 'awful' could happen to Barack Obama in June -- or worse, somebody could 'kill' him like they did Robert Kennedy.  Did you ever stop to think that by simply walking away awhile ago, that 'if' God Forbid, something did happen to Obama or his campaign, that the Party would 'still' be able to ask you to step into the position?  You didn't 'have' to stay in the race.  People would still vote at the upcoming primaries.  Making it sound as though you would be our hero on the side lines, is plain ludicrous.

    You are implying that if you had gotten out, the Party would be without a nominee.  You are wrong.  At one point, say two or three weeks ago, the Party would have simply asked that you run in his place.  That won't happen now.

    Why you might ask?  Because if something 'does' happen now, like the famous Vince Foster story, you will be accused of being somehow connected to Obama's problem or death.  The Party will not want a tainted candidate.  I'm assuming that John Edwards, Al Gore or some other leader will be offered the position instead.

    Hillary, you've blown your own plan/dreams of ever being President.  To top it off, you've blown any chance of being Obama's VP selection.

    Go home Hillary, it's over.
