Hillary out of the Senate removes the natural focus of any Democratic Party dissent to Obama's presidency. This is essentially the same Senate that rolled over and bared its ass for George Bush for eight years. Take Hillary, her supporters, and her ambition out of the equation, and no one is likely to even try to keep Obama honest. And he would seem to need the help in that area, as all politicians do. I hope like hell she looks over his offer and decides to pass. She can do a lot more for the country, and for herself where she is. Someone has to drive the healthcare debate; someone's got to be a voice for women and the working class, and right now that's Hillary.
