And When Shall We Plan Your Imminent Death, Sir?

I'm finding the cognitive dissidence between Hillary's scortched earth campaign/spooky comments about Obama's longevity, and her latest overture to be VP just too much to handle.

It's like that old saying:

I wasn't there.
And if I was there I didn't do it.
And if I did do it, I didn't mean it.
And if I did mean, it wasn't wrong to do anyway.

That seems to have been Hillary's strategy for her entire campaign....just keep throwing shit at the wall till it sticks.

If she had bowed out of the race back in April or even mid-May, when it was clear she couldn't catch Obama but she *could* have hurt him if she'd chosen to, and had instead started shoring up his negatives then....well, then it'd be a different story. But now after doing everything in her power to fracture the party and hurt Obama's chances, she thinks she deserves to be on the ticket? It's mind boggling.
