Motives.

The world’s absolutely a buzzin’ over news that Hillary Clinton confirmed that she would agree to be Barack Obama‘s vice-president. “Hillary Rodham Clinton told colleagues Tuesday she would consider joining Barack Obama as his running mate, and advisers said she was withholding a formal departure from the race partly to use her remaining leverage to press for a spot on the ticket.” So, why would the former First Lady – who just yesterday vowed to fight on – so willingly take the number two slot? Is she trying to force Obama to take her? Is she telling other party leaders that they should push for this? Last gasp? [AP]
