Just a peep. I begin to have hopes, for Obama. He's pretty darn smart. He's just managed to dodge Hillary's attempt to muscle into the Vice President's job.
According to the BBC; he's appointed a "panel" of 3 heavy duty Democrats to do the "search" for the veep, and make the formal recommendation. One of the panel members is Caroline Kennedy.
Ok, this is like really, really smart. They're not going to recommend Hillary (my god, what an insanely bad idea); not in a million years. And now, Obama can just point and say "see, it wasn't me, at all."
What will the panel say about Hillary?
Here's my prediction: "Of course we gave long thought to Ms. Clinton, but we quickly agreed that she is simply too dynamic an individual, and too important to the future of this country and the Democratic Party, for her to be buried in what is, after all, a post with uncertain and unclear responsibilities. She will be of far greater value to Mr. Obama's administration in some other post; and he will be asking for her input on that point soon."
Wanna bet? :-)
oh, and; I'm inside resting my feet from my mowing orgy- the new Grillo is here, and in spite of an owners manual in 6 languages, apparently translated into English from Servo-Spelunkian, went together with great simplicity, and cuts like a dream, using virtually zip for fuel. I'm in heaven. Short break, water, more mowing.
