According to press reports such as this one, and for all I know a zillion others (I’ve been totally out of touch at a graduation party over on Eat Street), Clinton will announce her move on Saturday. She had a conference call with party mucky mucks today, apparently. The announcement will come in connection with an end-of-primary event. The Obama campaign is pretty much staying out of the way.
Mr Obama had paid tribute to Mrs Clinton and hinted that she would play a role in any future Obama administration.Mrs Clinton has said she would be “open” to the idea of being Mr Obama’s vice-presidential running-mate.Referring to a brief conversation he had held with his defeated rival, the Illinois senator said: “I’m very confident of how we’re going to be able to bring the party together.”
Caroline Kennedy, daughter of President John Kennedy, former deputy Attorney General Eric Holder and Jim Johnson comprise Obama’s VP selection committee.I, for one, am totally confident that we will be seeing an Obama/Clinton ticket.
