Hillary’s Gladiator Moment of Truth

One thing came to mind after I read this:

Hillary Clinton will be offered a dignified exit from the presidential race and the prospect of a place in Barack Obama’s cabinet under plans for a “negotiated surrender” of her White House ambitions being drawn up by Senator Obama’s aides.

Remember the scene at the beginning of the movie Gladiator when the soldier is sent off on horseback carrying a message for the enemy, and minutes later the horse returns carrying all parts of the messenger except his head?

But on the off-chance the “dignified exit” offer is accepted by Hillary, there is yet another reason to hope Obama loses:

The former First Lady would get the chance to pilot Mr Obama’s reforms of the American healthcare system if she agrees to clear the path to his nomination as Democratic presidential candidate.

Hillary piloted healthcare reforms the first time with such success, why not let her have another shot at it? I’m sure Captain Smith won’t hit an iceberg this time.
