Like her DLC soulmate, Joe Lieberman, Hillary Clinton really is about one person: Hillary Clinton. So she'll doctor photos to make a fellow Democrat look different, she'll praise her Republican "rival," she'll lie about NAFTA-gate and pretty much anything else - really, nothing matters except that she get elected to the office she's running for. Just like Joe Lieberman.
Which brings me to the realization that in some dark, reptilian part of what's left of the brain that's been stewing in Penn-juice for a year now, she's realizing that Florida's delegates won't get seated, that the supers are going to vote for the winner not the "winner", and that she won't be the nominee, let alone president, ever. Never. Ever. And this is NOT how it was supposed to be. Especially after all she put up with. Promises were made. Oaths sworn. And now, this. Loss. Defeat.
And that won't do. So there in the shadowy corners of her overcooked brain comes this voice that says, "Hey...Hillary...you and Johnny Mac have a lot in common...you and Johnny Mac crossed a threshold...together...that's what married couples do...and hey...maybe you could marry him...not literally, that would be too weird, but maybe...hey, here's a thought...maybe you could be his vice presidential nominee! Think about that Hill...the country would go for it...I mean, not the whole country, but who needs the whole country anyway...the significant states...they'd vote on that ticket. Especially if you scared the living shit out of them, you and Johnny Mac...have him show his scars on TV...let you run your fingers over them...this could happen to their children...Barack Obama could do it...or someone with a name that sounds like his name...plus...Johnny's old...he could...die. He could die in the first term...then...well...there you are...and you've been tested...you're ready...you crossed a threshold...you're always up at 3 AM anyway...worrying...think about this...think about the young, manly interns who would work for you...you could fire all the girls and get an all male intern staff...think about this...Hillary...think...McCain...Clinton...think..."
Of course McCain would pick Lieberman over her anyway.
