Hillary Bailing on the DNC and Obama?

News broke today that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will not be attending the 2012 Democrat National Convention in Charlotte.

While the article cites her commitments as Secretary of State, let's face realize that's not the only reason why. Throughout the 90s, I have learned to never count out the Clintons and this theory still holds truth. The Clintons are smart politicians and excellent readers of the tea leaves. They see Obama's inability to lead and his struggle in attempting to pull his numbers back up. Additionally, the Clintons see the potential that Obama is landslideable and do not want to be anywhere near that, as they believe any Democrat who is will suffer electoral consequences. If he does lose in 2012, Hillary is making herself into the Democrat, in 2016, to not only say "I told you so," but to be the savior of the party and the one to pick of the pieces of Obamaism.

It will be interesting to see this all play out in the years to come.
