Hillary Clinton doesn't think she should quit the race yet because of a former President and a man who was murdered trying to become President? Here's what she told the Sioux Falls Argus Leader.

"My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don't understand it," she said, dismissing calls to drop out."

On "Meet the Press" Tim Russert pointed out that Bill Clinton actually had the nomination wrapped up in April (although Clintonian semantics may argue otherwise). But clearly, that's the afterthought in this statement. Was she really saying she shouldn't quit because of the chance of an assassination of Barack Obama? Really? What do the Clinton-should-be-the-Vice-President people think of this? Do you really think comments like these will help her chances?

Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun Times included former Iowa Gov and big time Clinton supporter, Tom Vilsack, in the first tier of possibilities for Obama's running mate. Vilsack's inclusion seems a bit curious. He helped lead Clinton's efforts in Iowa. And Clinton finished third. He doesn't exactly speak well about Obama. Where would Vilsack help Obama?

The baseball season is now nearly 1/3 of the way completed. At some point, my Cardinals may need to be considered contenders. "May" is still the key word there. But what a surprise. The same could be said for the Tampa Bay Rays. Who knew all they would have to do was get rid of the "devil" in their name and then they would have the best record in baseball?
