"That's such an ugly word. Let's just call it 'funding her cooperation'."  
Last week, when I expressed a suspicion that Clinton was gearing up for an independent run, several people responded that her campaign was well over donation limits and was millions of dollars in debt, and asked where she was going to get the money to fund a full-on indy run.

Looks like she's solved the debt problem, though it's theoretically contingent on her Not Making Trouble.

Nothing says she has to give the money back if she decides to go it on her own, though.

After contemplating the possibilities, I'm starting to think that the VP slot might be the place where Clinton can do the least damage. Her connections to the Religious Right make me leery of giving her a spot on the Supreme Court.

Sigh. I think I need to stop grumbling about Clinton and start focusing my ire on McCain. I think we all do.

I feel: cynicalcynical

The only problem I see with that is that the VP slot is one of the better springboards you can have to get the top job later. At the very least, it means one is pretty likely to get the party nomination, especially if one's been in the job for two terms. And in the meantime, the VP is just one heartbeat away...

There's a line from Deepness in the Sky, spoken by the grand genius of the alien Spiders (through a proxy):

"You know us far better then the reverse...you must choose your own monsters."

And that's exactly what it's time to do.

I'd rather have neither.

And she still pisses me off. I will donate to whoever her primary opponent is. Period.
