According to Talking Points Memo this morning -- and it's up now on the wire services as well -- the Clinton and Obama camps have reached agreement on how the convention, the reeeeaally big shew, will be scheduled, choreographed, synchronized, and homogenized. Clinton's name will be placed in nomination; Obama will win the vote; she'll support him; everybody will go home happy.
This should put an end to Maureen Dowd's regular Hillarophobic moans in Sunday's Times. However, Dowd's observation that Hillary is already running for 2012 is correct. No one as ambitious as Mrs. Clinton could be expected to take her eyes off the brass ring for even a second, even when it's a long shot.
