As of tonight, Barack Obama has the commitment of enough delegates to secure the Democratic nomination
.Hillary Clinton has not conceded
. Her campaign has stated that she has no intention of conceding, though she has clearly lost.
Some people out there in the blogosphere are wondering what the deal is, what the strategy is. She might be jockeying for a VP slot, though after such an acrimonious campaign, that sounds like a less-than-optimal ticket to me.
Here's what I think:
Her campaign is gearing up to run independent, thus splitting the vote and guaranteeing that the election goes to McCain, because she is, quite frankly, pro-business, pro-evangelical, and pro-war, and the only reason reason she manages to pass as a "liberal" is because she's got the entire right-wing media hegemony backing her ruse.
You heard it here first, kids... and please, six months from now, throw it back in my face and tell me how wrong I am.
