James has taken his disgust with Hillary Clinton to the big time with a column in The Guardian, in which he rejects the suggestion that she be made the VP candidate.  As a matter of electoral calculation, I think he is basically right.  She will not cover Obama’s weaknesses, which I doubt can be covered over effectively, and she will weigh him down with all of her own preoccupations and baggage.  For Clinton, it really is all or nothing, and in the end that means that she will get nothing.
