So carefully crafted, this insertion in our psyche. Used it, now it’s time to say goodbye, move on and become what you are. And what is that?

The Honorary Kennedy
Ted and Caroline anointed Barack Obama as the candidate best qualified to carry on the JFK legacy. But to live up to it, he has to put it in the past.

David Axelrod on Obama and RFK:

[He often likens Obama to Robert F. Kennedy and told The Washington Post, "I thought that if I could help Barack Obama get to Washington, then I would have accomplished something great in my life."[1]]

One of the snipes about Bill Clinton in this race has been that he reportedly received 800,000 in speaking engagements in 2005, during the period that the Columbia free trade deal was enacted. Did he do it? Yes. Senator Clinton was against it’s renewal.

Was this a conflict of interest? NO. If anything I would think the Colombians’ should be upset.

The Corrupt Clinton Foundation(NOT!)

Clinton Foundation

http://www.clintonfoundation.org/index.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinton_Foundati...

You may remember that Clinton began and got funding for the Aids In Africa program. My 80 year old mother was, as was I, irate when Bush began his term that one of his very first acts was was to change the program to require that African groups receiving this money were not to discuss abortion or sex education. PEPFAR, as it came to be known, taught the ABC approach.(Abstain, Be faithful, and correct and consistent use of Condoms). It was considered a Christian imposition, rather than allowing the African community to decide for themselves. See current thought:

“According to its critics, PEPFAR is influenced too heavily by American political and social groups with "moral" rather than public health agendas. PEPFAR Watch [8], a website run by the Center for Health and Gender Equity and Health GAP, notes that the legislation behind PEPFAR “contains several restrictions, including those on funding for prevention activities and on organizations working with commercial sex workers.”[9] PEPFAR has also refused to fund effective yet “taboo” safe needle exchange programs to prevent HIV transmission among drug users”.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/President%27s_Em...

In light of his determination and experience, it is perfectly understandable that he would found an organization more consistent with his vision. It is also understandable that many on the religiously conservative side of our country would object.

As eriposte mentions in his article Senator Clinton herself some time ago attempted to get a bill passed that would require full disclosure of all monies going in to an Ex-president’s foundation. however that bill was shot down. So it is NOT currently required. however, it is anticipated that should she become president she will again call for it, and no doubt so will the republicans. Since she has offered already, it is unlikely anything nefarious is afoot.

Clinton not ready to concede race, her campaign chair

[There are not enough pledged delegates at stake in Montana and South Dakota to put Obama over the top, but a rush of endorsements by the remaining undeclared "superdelegates" could allow him to claim victory when he takes the stage in Minnesota Tuesday evening.]

Update she said she would concede if Obama get the magic number of 2118 Tuesday night, which it looks like he will. She will concede the nomination to him and keep campaigning!!

There is no statement from the Clinton Camp that I can find in blogs or anywhere other than this is new spin. The VP slot was discussed weeks ago. No matter what,
she needs the opinion by vote. It looks like another attempt to me to dissuade voters.

The AP reportedly put out a poll of probable endorsers, I can’t find it. I don’t think we got a winner yet. In the mean time see below for where I think all this coming from.

Clinton says she's open to being Obama's VP

By BETH FOUHY and DEVLIN BARRETT
Associated Press Writers
[Obama effectively sewed up the 2,118 delegates needed to win the nomination Tuesday, based on a tally of pledged delegates, superdelegates who have declared their preference, and another 18 superdelegates who have confirmed their intentions to The Associated Press. It also included five delegates Obama was guaranteed as long as he gained 15 percent of the vote in South Dakota and Montana later in the day]
