Clinton out as VP

Senator Hillary Clinton will be the keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention in Denver next month, according to sources including a campaign to draft Clinton as a running mate for the party’s presumptive nominee, Barack Obama.

CNN reports that Clinton will speak on the second night of the convention, citing party sources.

However, as a group formed to push for Hillary’s nomination points out, the move all but assures that she wil not be named the party’s vice-presidential candidate. In an email sent to supporters, VoteBoth.com said, “We hope you are as pleased as we are that he [Brack Obama] has tapped Senator Clinton to deliver one of the most important messages of that crucial week….Regretfully, this means that Senator Clinton is no longer under consideration as Senator Obama’s running mate.”

The person chosen as Obama’s running mate will most likely speak the following night.
