It looks like Senator Clinton will finally acknowledge reality in public.  From her email on Saturday she will "extend my congratulations to Senator Obama and my support for his candidacy."

But as EJ Dionne wrote, Clinton has blown her chance to graciously concede to Barack Obama, hogging a fair share of the limelight at a time that really belonged to Obama.  

And no way Obama should pick Clinton to be his vice-presidential candidate.  First, to be blunt, an experienced white male might be a good balance for the ticket - and no I don't mean Bill Clinton.  But second, Senator Clinton's behavior over recent months has been incredibly self-centered and potentially (we will know later) damaging to the Democratic Party.  To choose Hillary Clinton as VP nominee would really look like an admission of weakness.

Pick Wes Clark.
