Hillary Clinton's last-ditch campaign for Democratic leaders to jettison their support for the party's White House front-runner Barack Obama looked to be coming to the end of the road Monday.BTW, the idea that Barack Obama shouldn't be at all worried about Bill Clinton undermining him if he were to select Hillary as his VP, is just downright stupid. Slick Willie has 8 years of being top dog and he still has plenty of influence in the White House. He'd be sleeping with (on most nights anyway) a VP who he already feels is the "most qualified" candidate. Despite sleeping around on his wife while in office, he still left the WH immensely popular, yet the 'Clinton' name carries with it a huge amount of baggage (as the response to a new Vanity Fair article attests). His huge ego alone wouldn't allow him to keep his mouth shut when it comes to attempting to effect policy. Liberals say that a McCain presidency would mean 4 more years of Bush, what say anyone advocating a Hillary Clinton vice-presidency? Hypocrites.
Ahead of the last nominating contests Tuesday in Montana and South Dakota, even the former first lady's husband hinted at imminent defeat as the party shifts gears to take on Republican John McCain.
"I want to say also that this may be the last day I'm ever involved in a campaign of this kind," former president Bill Clinton told a rally of his wife's supporters in South Dakota, ABC and NBC reported.
"I thought I was out of politics, till Hillary decided to run. But it has been one of the greatest honors of my life to go around and campaign for her for president," he added.
The Clinton campaign announced that she would hold an election night "celebration" Tuesday in her home state of New York, not in Montana or South Dakota.
According to New York newspaper Newsday, Clinton is to huddle with advisers and her husband at her upstate home in Chappaqua to monitor the final results and decide whether and how to end her campaign.
