The New York Times está reportando que Hillary Clinton endorsará a Barack Obama el sábado y se ha despedido de la gente de su campaña.
El VP (‘dream ticket’), como les dije, no parecía muy buena idea. Al principio sí, pero después de lo que ha pasado, pues no. Hubiera sido mejor opción para Obama, pero peor decisión para Clinton, dicen otras fuentes y yo pienso lo mismo.
Entre los detalles que nos trae NYTimes sobre el final de la campaña dem dice esto:
Her decision came after a day of conversations with supporters on Capitol Hill about her future now that Mr. Obama had clinched the nomination. Mrs. Clinton had, in a speech after Tuesday night’s primaries, suggested that she wanted to wait before deciding about her future, but in conversations throughout the day on Wednesday, her aides said, she was urged to step aside.
…The desire of the party for Mrs. Clinton to leave the race was signaled – if politely as four top Democratic leaders issued a statement on Wednesday morning asking all uncommitted delegates to make their decisions by Friday. The statement from the party officials – Howard Dean, the Democratic chairman; Nancy Pelosi, the House speaker; Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, and Gov. Joe Manchin of West Virginia – stopped short of endorsing Mr. Obama, but aides said they would likely move in that direction if Mrs. Clinton lingered in the race.
“The voters have spoken,” they said in their joint statement released before 7 a.m., purposefully timed to set the tone for the day after the election. “Democrats must now turn our full attention to the general election.”
