Yesterday evening, at Hillary Clintonâ€™s Washington home, the New York Senator had a private meeting with Barack Obama. So private, in fact, no one else was in the room.
What did they discuss? No one knows. But I bet it had something to do with uniting the party. As much as Clinton obviously wanted this nomination, I believe she wants a Democratic president even more. And I believe, once they cool down, her supporters will feel the same. Clinton can do a lot to make sure those who voted for her stay within the Democratic fold.
This private meeting was almost certainly a chance for these two proud senators to bury or at least begin burying the hatchet. Do not doubt they will coordinate efforts going forward. Even if Obama does not choose Clinton as VP, I expect her to be an important figure in the Democratic campaign.
Update by Justin Gardner:
It appears as if the meeting happened at Senator Dianne Feinstein’s house.
