Hillary Clinton Watch: It’s Over?

Regina Stern of Barnegat, N.J., center, holds up a ‘Hillary Clinton for President’ sign with a John McCain sticker attached prior to a town hall meeting with Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Friday, June 13, 2008, in Pemberton, N.J. Stern said she supported Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary but now supports McCain.

It has been a week since Hillary Clinton suspended her Presidential campaign – note that she did not concede the race. And, also, note how Flap said she would hover and linger about the race during the summer waiting for Obama to stumble.

But, how will she keep the dream alive?

Jake Tapper over at ABC has the poop on the Clinton’s “suspended” campaign.

Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, may still be vacationing at Oscar de la Renta’s, or wherever, but the reverberations from her erstwhile campaign continue.

In GQ, her senior adviser, the much maligned Mark Penn, gives one more interview on his post-campaign rehabilitation tour. Read it HERE.

And — recalling the Japanese soldier “holdouts” found in the islands of the Philippines years after World War II ended — a Million Woman March on Denver for the Democratic Convention in August on behalf of Clinton is being planned.

Bill Clinton is back on the campaign trail as well.

For his part, Bill Clinton popped up in Torrance, Calif., this week to speak at the 8th grade graduation of his nephew, after which he popped in on the American Film Institute’s tribute to Warren Beatty.

This race is NOT over until Barack Obama officially wins the nomination in Denver. Political chatter of Hillary as Vice President has also died down – has anyone noticed?

Stay tuned……

    My husband and I are Clinton supporters. In our opinion as well as many other Clinton supporters, we consider “Obama” an extremely “in-experienced”, “weak”, candidate who has not been properly vetted but will be before November comes, (if he becomes the democratic party nominee) by the republican party in ways that the democratic party will not like at all. Remember the attacks against John Kerry. Remember the attacks against John Kerry’s wife. The republicans this time don’t have to pay people to “lie”( the swift boat ads) or create a “mountain out of a molehill” like they did with Kerry’s wife. They have “real documentation” coming from Obama himself, his wife, his ex-pastor, his ex-church, his ex-friends, and his ex-political allies.

    If Obama had not been “selected” by some leaders of the democratic party and the rules committee of the party had not disenfranchised voters and Clinton had not won the popular vote in the democratic primary, we Clinton supporters might be disappointed that our candidate did not win but we would not be angry and mounting this revolt. However like the English colonists before us who protested against “taxation without representation”, we see this as a matter of “justice” and “fairness.” It goes beyond our candidate – Hillary Clinton. It goes to the very “heart and soul” of why our founding fathers broke from the tyranny of English rule. What is”not being reported ” or is being “dismissed ” by many in the MSM as a bunch of “Clinton fanatics and kooks” (very reminiscent of how the English colonials were dismissed by the English royalty prior to the Revolution) is a very “real” revolt against the current leadership of the democratic party and against following in “lockstep” behind their unfairly “selected candidate.”

    Hillary Clinton supporters will make their voice heard at the convention. Obama was narrowly chosen by SuperDelegates and not the popular vote.

    IT is not over until Denver.

    A million woman march to the Convention? Obama is going to have a hard time pacifying this lot… The Veep talk for Hillary seems to have died down. What’s she holding out for? If Obama has any problems because of Clinton supporters, people are going to start blaming Clinton if Obama ends up losing in November.

    I’m glad Hillary has shut it down. There’s no chance she could win the conventional way…hey, look, I made an unintentional funny! At this point, her only hope IS the “conventional” way. I don’t think she’ll go there and bloody Obama, but I wouldn’t necessarily put it past her.

    And I don’t think there’s any chance that he’ll pick her as Veep.

    She wants the Messiah Obama to bow down to her and help pay off her campaign debts for a starter. Then, work a deal where she would be appointed as the next Supreme Court Justice so that Bill can run for her Senate seat.
