Hillary Clinton is still in it, to win it.
Despite conceding to Barack Obama and suspending her ill-fated campaign to be the Democratic nominee.
Hillary Clinton told a gathering of supporters last week that she’s looking for a “strategy” for her delegates to have their voices heard and “respected” at the Democratic National Convention and did not rule out the possibility of having her name placed into nomination alongside Barack Obama’s at the convention.
Said the always ambitious Clinton to a crowd of loyalists:
“I happen to believe that we will come out stronger if people feel that their voices were heard and their views were respected. I think that is a very big part of how we actually come out unified. Because I know from just what I’m hearing, that there’s incredible pent-up desire. And I think that people want to feel like, ‘OK, it’s a catharsis, we’re here, we did it, and then everybody get behind Sen. Obama.’ That is what most people believe is the best way to go. No decisions have been made. And so we are trying to work all this through with the DNC and with the Obama campaign.”
No decisions have been made, Hillary? This would certainly explain why Hillary Clinton has been MIA on the campaign trail in recent weeks despite pledging to campaign for Barack Obama and help him get elected. At the end of the day, Hillary Clinton is fanning the hopes of the Hillbots and positioning herself to be a convention spoiler.
