What Should Hillary Do?

Fighting On, Hillary's Still Here! What's Her Next Best Move?

Obama's name might be in million-point font on the front of every paper, but hanging in there with a little Comic Sans of her own is Hillary Clinton. And now the big question remains: WWHD? What Will Hillary Do?

She posed that question last night in a speech (one that was infinitely better planned than the McCain cringer, but more on that later) to supporters in New York saying

Now, the question is: Where do we go from here? And given how far we've come and where we need to go as a party, it's a question I don't take lightly. This has been a long campaign, and I will be making no decisions tonight. But this has always been your campaign. So, to the 18 million people who voted for me, and to our many other supporters out there of all ages, I want to hear from you. I hope you'll go to my Web site at and share your thoughts with me and help in any way that you can.

In the middle of the empty auditorium, with no celebratory confetti to be found, is that big ol' elephant. Hillary has over 1,900 pledged delegates, a scant 200 or so fewer than Obama. Until she formally withdraws, those delegates stay in her pocket — a peanut for the elephant if you will. So what does she do with them?

While experts try to parse "what went wrong" with her campaign, Nancy Pelosi and pals call for a Friday deadline for the Superdelegates to decide, and people make lists of why she's still in it, the question is a little different: What Should Hillary Do?
