Hillary speaks

It appears Hillary Clinton will speak at the Democratic convention after all, even if it's only to introduce her long-winded husband. This latest Kerry flip-flop will presumably help quell the outrage amongst Democratic activists, but John Kerry and the DNC are certainly not thrilled.

The omission of Senator Clinton from the roster was no mere oversight; it was a calculated decision by convention planners, and we all know why they made it. Now, however, Team Kerry has to contend with the fallout of attempting to muzzle Hillary, while Hillary gets a speaking role anyway, accompanied by increased publicity. It's the worst of both worlds for the Dems.
