It’s Over, Hillary.

Come on. It’s starting to get embarrassing. It’s starting to get 3:07-a.m.-on-a-Sunday-night-we-were-just-having-drinks, when-will-they-ever-leave? embarrassing. Like, go home. Even the Fat Lady, above, is packing up to go home.

“I’m going to keep making our case, until we have a nominee, whoever she may be.”

Man. That stuff is just really starting to sound crazy. Enough, already.

Can you imagine what would have happened if, it was reversed and, Obama was doing this? Or if, in that alternate universe where she’s not viewed as the political equivalent of Omarosa, Cynthia McKinney was doing this? They’d have been lynched under a bridge by now.

Here’s what I’m wondering: Is there any way that the DNC could “urge” a V.P. position for Clinton, “for the good of the party”? Kind of a, “Yes, it’s your nomination, Barack, but it’s really our nomination” sort of thing?

You know: Just kinda sharecrop the position to him.

I don’t know. I’m just wondering.

She’s setting herself up for a 2012 run! Why else would she still be hanging on. I don’t see her accepting a vice presidential nomination either, even if Barack offers it, which he won’t. I think Edwards is Obama’s VP front-runner.

But Edwards has said already that he won’t take the VP slot. He’ll make a much better Attorney General, anyway.

Maybe Rahm Emanuel? Or Joe Biden?
