Hillary Saying All The Right Things

More like this, please:

“Anybody who has ever voted for me or voted for Barack has much more in common in terms of what we want to see happen in our country and in the world with the other than they do with John McCain,” Clinton said on CNN’s “The Situation Room.”

“I’m going to work my heart out for whoever our nominee is. Obviously, I’m still hoping to be that nominee, but I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that anyone who supported me … understands what a grave error it would be not to vote for Sen. Obama.

(…)

The racial gap has become a key issue in the media, but Clinton said she regrets “people exploding an issue like that.”

“It’s offensive. I think people vote for me because they think I’d be the better president. I think people vote for him because they think he’d be the better president. … That’s the way it’s supposed to be.

If she lives up her promise to campaign aggressively for Obama, then I think he’ll have a real good shot in November.  Although I kinda wish she’d start now…

    I’m hoping that he’ll take on Edwards as his VP now.

    Plusses:

    + BO (do we want a President with those initials?) can take over JE’s health care proposal, including mandates.

    + Southern Honky probably plays well with the Lynyrd Skynryd crowd.

    Minuses:

    + JE still reaks of the ’04 Dem defeat.

    + JE was not a strong attack dog in ’04, including doing everything short of rolling over and exposing his belly to Cheney in the VP debate. That would make for two conciliators on the ticket, while I think that BO needs a nasty, snarling behemoth to serve as counterpoint to his reconciliation rhetoric.

    Looking back on it now, I suppose that this endorsement was probably in the works for a little while, with the aim of blunting the effect of HC’s inevitable WV win in this news cycle. But I’d like to think that JE has reinserted himself into the race in this way in part out of embarrassment for how well he polled in the WV primary among what I can only figure was the “Anyone but the Lady or the Darky” vote. Yeesh. (Go stand in the corner, West Virginia. Bad West Virginia! Bad! Now, you think about what you have done!)
