HRC Chatter Continues to Dominate
By Ben Pershing
Will he or won't he? That question -- whether Barack Obama will hand the Foggy Bottom keys to Hillary Clinton -- continues to drown out all other political news this morning: The meeting with John McCain, the floundering auto bailout, the Joe Lieberman vote, even Sarah Palin, budding author.
Judging from the coverage, the scales seem tilted more toward "will" than "won't." Our cousins at the Guardian claim it's a done deal, though no other outlets go that far. The vetting of Bill Clinton continues apace, and remains the largest hurdle left to clear (though there are some in Obamaland who just don't like the idea, period, regardless of the Bill question). Is it possible that the longer the job dangles out there, the better the chance some deal-killing story/scandal will break?
