The Doublespeak of Hillary Clinton

It took an outrageous amount of arrogance on Hillary Clinton’s part recently to suggest that she should head a Democratic ticket on which Barack Obama could be the vice-presidential candidate—after all, she’s in second place in this race. In a superb response, Barack Obama has put her in her place. Watch:

As I’d written recently, a joint ticket simply wouldn’t be credible after all that has happened recently. Obama, to his credit, seems to realise that, and isn’t playing the game of suggesting that she be his veep. As for the Clintons, well, they think they can get away with anything. No surprise there.
