Hillary’s campaign is almost toast — or so the media says.

But, for the sake of argument, let us assume that sometime in the next few days or weeks Hillary concedes and then suspends her campaign. And then she announces her “unqualified” support for Obama. And then she publicly campaigns for Obama.

Here is what will be said: “Hillary is taking the high road. She is helping unite the Democratic Party in opposition to McCain and the GOP. She is also preserving her right to run again in 2012 if Obama should lose this year. She is trying to be seen as a ‘team player’ and a good loser."

But here is what the truth will be: Yes, she will look as though she is taking the high road; in reality, she will also be taking the lowest road imaginable.

You can bet team Clinton has a dirty road plan: try to expose enough dirt on Obama, leaked through cut-outs, to derail him before the Aug. 27 Democratic convention. The Clintons figure if enough bad stuff comes out before then, the superdelegates will see Obama as a certain loser in November and may still switch their votes to Hillary at the convention.

Or, if the dirt from the low road plan comes in after the convention, team Clinton will either leak it out or give it to McCain to use (if his campaign has the guts to attack Obama).

Her low road goal? Have Obama lose in November — whereupon she will immediately begin her "I told you so" campaign. She will remind every Democratic Party official and leader that she and Bill had told them all along that she could and would have won in the general election and that Obama would not win. This is the beginning of Hillary 2012.

This is what team Clinton is planning: Anyone who honestly accepts them on their word is a total fool. The Clintons are a political machine dedicated to one thing only: acquiring and then keeping political power. Period.

So, ignore their high road words, and instead focus on the obvious low road they are on. There are going to be new revelations about Obama. And he may still not be the nominee.
