Back of the Bus

I try not to post here too much about the campaign, mostly because I don't quite trust myself to be completely fair at this point, but it must be said that the recent jive from the Clintons about Obama as veep is unbearably condescending. It's basically saying to all the Obama supporters (the party's black base, and young voters particularly) that you kids can get in the back of the bus, just let us drive.

But as Obama , it's a bit rich for the candidate who's won a) less states b) less votes and c) less delegates to be offering the other candidate a spot on her ticket. And it's even harder to take when you consider that the Clinton campaign spends half its time saying Barack Obama isn't ready to be Commander in Chief and the other half of their time saying what a great Vice President he would make.
