Hillarys suspension of her campaign, and her omission of any release of her delegates, makes her a factor for Obama to consider for the next three months until the Democratic nomination is officially and finally his. Absent an actual statement to her delegates urging them to vote for Obama on the first ballot, Hillarys candidacy cannot be said to have ended.
Rather, the former first lady will be slowly circling overhead during June, July, and August waiting for Obama to make a mistake or stumble.
Throughout the next three months, there will always be the possibility that he errs so badly that Hillary gets back into the race. Should another pastor rear his head or if one of the mythical tapes that are said to be about to emerge does, in fact, exist, Obama cannot rest secure in the nomination as long as Hillary is overhead, waiting.
Even if all of the superdelegates desert Hillary, as most will now do, she still has 1,639.5 pledged or elected delegates to call her own. While these men and women can legally vote for either candidate, regardless of the slate on which they were elected, one must assume that they are true Hillary believers, who would not have been put on her slate to begin with.
These pledged delegates mean that she is always just a step or two away from the nomination, should Obama commit a faux pas.
And there will be many opportunities for Obama to err over the next three months. With John McCain keeping up the pressure by suggesting 10 town meetings between now and the conventions, at which the two putative candidates appear side by side, a weak debate performance or a decisive McCain win in any one of them could trigger a crisis for Obama, which Hillary...

If Hussein O. falters during upcoming debates, Ms. Bill Clinton may be nominated without having participated in such debates. Advantage Hillary.
I think the word is getting out.
My goodness, Osama stumbles every day.
I suspect she and her staff know something specific that will eventually come out, but it must not have her fingerprints.
“slowly circling overhead”
More like swirling in the toilet bowl of the Dumbocrat
That is what I am thinking too. Hillary must know something and she is waiting for the chance to “rescue” her party.
IMO, Hilly has a fix in at the convention and plans to take the nomination to a floor fight (hope so, hope so, hope so!!!).
If she steals the nomination with superdelegates, look for the Dem Party to explode like a supernova!!!
Go, Hilly, go!!
The word about Obama has been out for all to see but the MSM, who is in absolutely love with him, will bury it or over look it.
The word that he (Obama)is associated and has ties with racists (Wright) American-hating terrorist (Ayers) landlord thugs (Rezko) and support from every leftists group (i.e Code Pink) has been out and has done NOTHING to this man.
He is almost invincible and McCain is screwed.
I think Obozo is losing steam
Well, give an example. From several polls I’ve seen he is leading McCain so far.
He is stumbling more and more, and I notice signs are disappearing from yards.
I dont believe the MSM.
And remember this...Obozo barely has 49% of the DEM vote
I do NOT like the serpent head James Carville, but I like loyalty better than treachery. And Dickie Morris is a lower life form than serpent head.
Not quite sure how to break this to you but all the primaries are over.
Did someone say Arknancide? <sarc off/
Obama might get a brain tumor like Kennedy's or something like that. Lots of things could happen.
IMHO, Hillary either
1. has something so devastating it will cause Barry to withdraw
2. she’s hoping something like that will come along.
As I’ve posted before, there’s only one thing that will cause Hillary to stop her drive to be POTUS. Her death.
