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.

[snip] Hillary’s weakness is an illusion. She is playing rope-a-dope with Obama. By hanging on the ropes, and taking Obama’s punches, Hillary saves her strength for the knockout punch. Rest assured, the knockout will come. No matter how many primaries Obama wins, Hillary will beat him at the convention... At the appointed time, Hillary’s media operatives will ambush Obama with allegations of corruption, immorality and extremism... She will win the nomination. The real purpose of Hillary’s rope-a-dope is to lull Republicans into complacency. In this, she has largely succeeded. [end]
“I suspect she and her staff know something specific that will eventually come out, but it must not have her fingerprints.”
That’s what Novak had said not too long ago. And the Clinton Mob Machine couldn’t get anyone to run with it without their fingerprints on it.
This driving Syd Blumenthal to tears and Shrillary to gnashing of teeth.
Oh how the liberal/left machinery has turned.
