Speculation has been brewing since word of an offer and meeting between the two. Guardian is reporting Clinton has accepted:

Hillary Clinton plans to accept the job of secretary of state offered by Barack Obama, who is reaching out to former rivals to build a broad coalition administration, the Guardian has learned.

Update: No talk of Palin during Clinton campaign stop. “This election is about issues and blah blah blah…”

Say what?

A Clinton insider, said: ?We?re not going to be anybody?s attack dog against Sarah Palin.?

Whoever’s fault this is, it’s stupid. Hillary is the perfect attack dog against Palin. The only way she picks up any working class female votes is if Hillary stands by and watches.

ST. PAUL — Advisers to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton said on Sunday that Senator John McCain’s selection of Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska as his running mate would lead to a greater role for Mrs. Clinton as she campaigned this fall on behalf of her former rival, Senator Barack Obama.

Mrs. Clinton’s friends said she was galled that Ms. Palin might try to capitalize on a movement that Mrs. Clinton, of New York, built among women in the primaries. And Democrats used strong words on Sunday to rebut the notion: Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts said that women would […]

Nice. This should help get the Hillary vote:

Lyda Green is a Republican member of the Alaska Senate, representing the G District since 1995. She is currently the Senate President.

Earlier in January 2008, Palin had been involved in a mild controversy in an appearance on the KWHL radio program “The Bob and Mark Show.” During the show, Palin and host Bob Lester repeatedly criticized Green, accused her of being jealous of Palin’s success, and mocked Green’s weight. Lester went on to call Green a “cancer” and a “bitch,” to which Palin laughed several times.[3][4] Green is a cancer […]

Gallup shows Obama picking up more support from Hillary peeps:

PRINCETON, NJ — The Democratic convention appears to have helped solidify support for Barack Obama among former Hillary Clinton supporters, with the percent saying they will vote for Obama in November moving from 70% pre-convention to 81% after the convention, and the percent certain to vote for Obama jumping from 47% to 65%.

This better just be a rope-a-dope:

“We should all be proud of Governor Sarah Palin’s historic nomination, and I congratulate her and Senator McCain. While their policies would take America in the wrong direction, Governor Palin will add an important new voice to the debate.”

Just as I’ve been saying (and will continue to say), the way to quash this Palin nonsense and completely pull the rug out from under the strategy is for Hillary to engage it head on. TPM’s Eric Kleefeld has a great idea:

It is practically certain that on the night of Palin’s speech on Wednesday, we will be treated to her repeating her praise of Hillary Clinton, and the talk about how women still have a chance to break the glass ceiling. This will be accompanied by the bizarre sight of the Republican convention cheering for Hillary Clinton, all […]

DNC Day 3: Building to History

On August 27, 2008 By

This was by far the best night of the convention. I was of the mindset that it was going along too slowly and overall was weak, but the more I think about it the more I realize every day built upon the other. Every speaker played a part to build toward history.

Day 1 we saw Ted Kennedy make one of the most courageous speeches in modern politics. For him to even make it out to Denver was an accomplishment. To then eschew a stool in his quest to pass the torch to a new generation of Democratic leaders […]

A buddy mentioned this to me via IM and I swore that she said “proud wife”. She didn’t:

I am honored to be here tonight. A proud mother. A proud Democrat. A proud American. And a proud supporter of Barack Obama.

Nader Says Obama to Pick Clinton

On August 20, 2008 By

I say Nader’s nuts:

Nader phoned into Politico Tuesday afternoon to offer his prediction that a surprise nod to Clinton is actually what Obama has in store—never mind the talk of mistrust between the Clintons and Obama.

I still say it’s Kaine, with a possible surprise in Sebelius. Still time to make your picks in the poll >>>

Clinton 2012 Strategy Beginning?

On August 12, 2008 By

So is this the start of the Clinton for President 2012 campaign?

Sen. Hillary Clinton’s one-time chief strategist wanted to attack Sen. Barack Obama for lacking “American roots” during the Democratic primary battle, according to a magazine article set to be published online Monday evening.

No how in the WORLD would The Atlantic get internal emails and memos from the Clinton campaign?

Seems this gives McCain a ton of cover to run with these “un-American” negative attacks. Very curious.
