No Billary

Aside from Englehart's fine interpretation . . . . . . the VoteMaster at Electoral-Vote has it figured out:
Speaking of dog-whistle politics, Obama's announcement yesterday that he had hired Patti Solis Doyle is a clear example of same. Hillary Clinton belatedly fired her former friend for poor campaign and financial management. Now Obama hires her--as chief of staff to the Vice Presidential candidate. Can you imagine Clinton being saddled up with a chief of staff she thinks is incompetent and whom she at least partially blames for losing the nomination? The message seems clear: Clinton is not going to be the Veep candidate.
On the other hand, wouldn't ones Chief of Staff be someone THEY would want to pick. I never thought of Obama as a Micro Manager.
