On the other hand, my husband came up with a Machiavellian explanation. Bring Senator Clinton into the fold, give her the opportunity to do the job or make mischief. If she choses the latter, she has been eliminated from any position of national prominence. I never knew Mark's mind could work in such a devious way, but I think this makes sense. Not only is Barack Obama smart, he is very politically astute.
I'm waiting to go to the DR, so I'm babbling while I wait.
