    Here, the former President implies that the end is near:

    Looks like an indication that the end is near.

    You have to remember that this is Bill Clinton, so what he says is not necessarily what it seems. First, it all depends on what 'of this kind' means. He could, for example, be referring to a campaign for primary votes where Hillary does not get the most. Assuming she doesn't get the nomination this time, the two of them may well do it again, but make darn sure that no upstart gets in Hillary's way the next time. That would technically not be 'a campaign of this kind.' Also, after the last primary tomorrow, he may begin campaigning within the delegates (rather than among voters) to try to swing some over to Hillary. That would also technically not be another 'campaign of this kind.'

    Note too that he included the word 'may' in the sentence. That's a universal out for changing his mind later.

    Of course, it may also be that he knows very well that he's going to be campaigning again for Hillary at some point, and he's just lying. Yet again...

    I heard that Senator Clinton is telling her campaign staffers to get their expense reports in by the end of the week and that if they fly to New York for her event in New York tomorrow night that they are responsible for the expense of the flight back.

    I believe her sense of entitlement resulted in her defeat by a neophyte.

    For 8 years, she has been the annointed one of her party. In the end, they turned on her.

    Bill hurt her bad.

    I was wrong, I really thought she would pull it out.

    Still an anonymous caller, but this does look like it is wrapped up.

    Obama/Clinton will make an interesting race.

    I read earlier how she would like to be obama's running mate. Means to me, she's done and she knows it.

    Obama will not put up with Bill Clinton. I was wrong about her winning, but I really don't think we will see an Obama/Clinton ticket. Not after the fight they have had.

    As hard as she fights for what she believes, I would imagine that if Senator Obama wins in November that it would be like having a wild mustang in a small enclosure kicking out the walls. I am not sure she could just play 2nd violin to President Obama. And I am certain that former President Clinton couldn't and wouldn't shut up.

    It would certainly make a strong ticket and hard to be beat to put both their constituencies together.

    No worse than Reagan and Bush - remember "voodoo economics"?

    Or Ford & Reagan. Remember the last minute negotiations over a "co-presidency"?

    I agree, what president would want Bill living in the VP mansion and hanging around all the time trying to get back into the spotlight?

    Yeah, but Reagan/Bush actually joined up after all the fighting.

    I agree that politics will usually win out but for the Reagan?Bush analogy to really apply, we would have to agree that Sen. Clinton and the former president would take a back seat to a President Obama. I just am not sure that either of them have it in them.

    That's really not a slam at them, because I am not sure I could ever become an assistant pastor again (that's the closest analogy I could think of). You reach a point where being a Senator gives more freedom of thought and speech thanm being a Vice President.

    The Clintons have already had two spins through the hen house. Perhaps we are looking at a different kind of fox trying to get there. This race will probably not be decided by the real issues--as usual. We need more COLA --with less sugar. Is someone trying to use the energy in political rhetoric?

    VOTE.

    Selah,
