News yesterday was the Hillary Clinton would concede the nomination to Barack Obama last night and begin pushing the notion that she would make a swell veep.

Well, she didn’t … and now Democratic Party leaders are trying to round up the wagons.

According to The LA Times, chairman Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are calling for a Friday deadline for superdelegates to make up their minds … effectively ending the now hopeless, one-time frontrunning campaign of Hillary.

I watched some of the returns last night on MSNBC after I got done watching Hell’s Kitchen (go Bobby). Barack Obama’s speach was elequent and magnanimous. Hillarys was … not.

Really, the longer she stays in, the more I was Barack Obama to find a way to punish her. Still praying she’s not his V.P. selection.
