What role now for Clinton?
Hillary Clinton stopped short of conceding the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama and said she would consult party leaders in coming days on how to proceed.
She said she was committed to uniting the Democratic Party for the November presidential election against Republican John McCain, but repeatedly talked about the nearly 18 million voters who chose her over Obama in the nomination battle.
Clinton told New York members of Congress that she would be open to becoming Obama’s vice presidential running mate, and her backers began to turn up the pressure on Obama to pick her as his No. 2.
Should Obama bow to that pressure? Is there some other role he should offer her?
