What it looks like to people grounded in reality

I don't know about you people, but I feel like Hillary is about to say "I'm ready for my close up, Mr. DeMille." That "Full Speed Ahead! Next Stop... West Virginia!" moment was almost painful. I felt that she was the only person in the room who did not get it. The pundits, after the speech, took a couple of secs to put on a good face for the loony tune moment. Notice the director in the clip below looks like none other than James Carville!
As we move back to reality, people are asking "what role can Billary play for Obama?" At first thought it could help to have Billary pushing, whole hog, for Team Obama. Yet.....
Here is a candidate who took the presumptive win, a name bigger than God, more money than one could imagine, the Party's power, a slew of multi-million dollar experts, and the tiara, and drove her ship right onto the rocks. Then you have that marvelous husband. Every time he wags his finger for Obama we will have to regain the 4,000 voters he made sick. Do we want these two anywhere near the Obama campaign?
We want Hillary's voters, we should work hard to get them, we should take some of her message but, we shouldn't let her and Bill anywhere near the microphone.
Hillary's supporters are good people. We want them. I just think Billary has to move on and get away. At this point there is serious talk about offering Obama Hillary's exit speech as long as his campaign agrees to pay all her outstanding debt. Can you imagine, asking Obama to pay Penn's outstanding bills?
Hillary's good voters are no longer hostages. They don't have to suffer Bill, Penn, and all the other pains. Welcome to the Party.
