FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
It looks like Barack Obama is narrowing his search for a vice president, and Hillary Clinton ain't on the list. There are reports that Virginia Governor Tom Kaine is quote "very, very high on the short list" and that he's told associates he's had "very serious conversations" with Obama about joining the ticket.
Some of the other names out there are Senators Evan Bayh and Joe Biden, Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius and former Senator Sam Nunn. But no Hillary. She may dream about being on the dream ticket, but that's apparently about all.
Watch: Cafferty: Clintons MIA?
Right after the primaries CNN's Roland Martin told me the chances of Hillary being on the ticket were slim and none. When one of our bosses told him he needed a second source for that information, Roland said, "There is no second source." Looks like he knew what he was talking about.
The New York Times says Clinton has told people close to her she thinks there's little chance Obama will pick her. Here's a clue: She hasn't been asked to provide any documents to the committee vetting potential VPs. She's not campaigning for Obama either.
Hillary Clinton hardly darkened the door of the U.S. Senate for 16 months while she was running for president.
Now all of a sudden her former campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe says she's been too busy working in the Senate to campaign for the Democrat who won the nomination. He says once she's done there, though, "she's going to hit the campaign trail." Her Senate work didn't keep her from campaigning for herself almost every day for a year and half.
And what about Bill Clinton? Almost as silent and invisible as his wife.
Here’s my question to you: When it comes to Barack Obama, where are the Clintons?
Interested to know which ones made it on air?
Hillary is managing the whisper campaign, while Bill is working the backroom boys. And Obama is way too savvy not to be aware of it. The manure spreader will be out in the open and in full operation soon.
I think it's entirely understandable that the Clintons are taking time until the convention to come to terms with the end of Hillary's quest for the '08 nomination. I'll be surprised if they're not both fully engaged in the presidential campaign come autumn.
Ron from Florida writes:
Jack, The Clintons are where they belong, maintaining an up-and-coming political powerhouse. Each has their own baggage that Obama doesn't need. He is doing very well on his own. Obama only has carry-on baggage, the Clintons have gone over the accepted limit and Obama doesn't want to pay for the increased price.
Joann from Hamilton, Georgia writes:
Who the hell cares where the Clintons are, Jack? Good riddance! It's time for change and they do not represent change. I can't wait for the Bushes to be gone, too! We need new people and new ideas.
Cripes Jack, If the Clintons were already campaigning, two months from now you would be crowing about Clinton overkill. Your question to us then would be something like "Do you think the Clintons have been campaigning too much for Barack Obama, and is it hurting his run for president?" Too much Clinton may hurt Obama's campaign and I think their camp is aware of that.
Quentin from New York writes:
God only knows. On second thought, scratch that. The Devil would be the one who would know Hillary's business.
Plotting Obama's doom.
