What Obama Needs to Do Now
What Obama needs to do now is pick up the phone and call Hillary Clinton. Probably Bill ought to get on another line; call with Michelle. And then ask Hillary to be the vice-presidential running mate. She must say yes. And then the election can get on to a discussion of the economy (Dems win), foreign policy (Dems win), health care (Dems win), the environment (Dems win): then the Democrats can get on with the business of winning. Obama accepting Clinton is the surest path to Democratic victory. It's better than hanging all of Clinton's supporters (about half of the primary voters so far) out to dry. Only Obama can do it. Come on, let's get on with it!
