Yes She Will...Or Will She?

Ok - less than three hours after I post that Clinton needs to concede and endorse Obama by Friday, we get the news that Clinton is planning to concede and endorse Obama on Friday.

Or is she?

The way CNN puts it, she will "suspend her compaign" and "back Obama."

But there's a world of difference between the two.

"Suspending her campaign" merely means she will stop actively campaigning, but hold on to her delegates (possibly in reserve for an August surprise?). This is exactly what we DON'T need.

What we need is for her to actually *concede*, or, as the New York Times puts it, "concede defeat, congratulate Mr. Obama and proclaim him the party’s nominee, while pledging to do what was needed to assure his victory." (including handing over her delegates.)

Which will it be?

At this point....only Clinton knows for sure.
