This Will Not Please the Ladies

An unnamed Democrat official is quoted in Politico as having said that Sen. Hillary Clinton was never vetted for the Vice President position in the Barack Obama campaign.

“She was never vetted,” a Democratic official reported. “She was not asked for a single piece of paper. She and Senator Obama have never had a single conversation about it. How would he know if she’d take it?”

The official also said Clinton never met with Obama’s vetting team of Eric Holder and Caroline Kennedy.”

However, an unnamed Obama aide retorts, "Absolutely exhaustive research was done on her over the course of the 16 month primary. She was researched more closely than any candidate in history."

So, maybe yes, maybe no.

The title of the Politico report by Mike Allen is, “Hillary Gets Stiffed.”

If she did get stiffed, this will not go down well with her supporters.

Don -
When it was announced that Hillary would be headlining Tuesday night, "her people" put out an email, which I must have deleted, that said she was therefore no longer in the running for VP, and they were closing that website down (or something to that effect).

Hillary's name is being put in nomination and President Clinton is speaking on Wednesday.

No cold shoulder.

Well, sure, but the absence of vetting certainly means that Obama never intended her as a VP choice. Her supporters are already chaffing, and this won't help.
