She can't be the president.
She can't even be the nominee for president.
She might wrestle Obama to the ground for the VP slot.
But according to close observers she doesn't believe Obama can win even with her on the ticket.
So is she willing to accept the default running mate position, knowing she could end up defeated even for that? What does that do to her future? She becomes an eternal Geraldine Ferraro? (Whose husband, by the way, played a big part in the failure of the Mondale bid.)
And if she IS trying to get the veep job, does Obama want to come anywhere near bringing a Billary time bomb onto the ticket and into the White House?
And if he doesn't, does he permanently alienate all the middle-aged women who can't believe they got this close to seeing a woman at the top only to see it collapse? Did you see this?
See why I say the drama isn't over?
