The political pundits have been wondering, "What does Hillary want?" There'a a lot of speculation - a guarantee of universal health care, major input on the war and the economy, a place on the November ticket. John Fitzgerald Kennedy once said that "Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan." At least for now, that's not true for Senator Clinton - she brought 18 million voters to the table and she wants an assurance that their voices will be heard.

The bottom line is that change is difficult and involves a process that takes both time and patience. Perhaps Clinton is considereing her options in concert with her family, advisors and closest friends, or working up a strategic plan to help unite the Democratic party, or even taking a few days to reflect on the past 18 months and to savor the positive memories.

Like a kaleidoscope, looking through different lenses may change the experience. It seems that everyone has their own opinion of how, why and when - but there are likely only a few people who really know what Clinton is going through. And she did say last night that she will speak on Saturday. Don't you think she deserves the opportunity to end it her way?

Food for thought - but the fate of the Democratic party is at stake. Whether she is taking time to savor or manipulate, better sooner than later. Gillian

My younger son is graduating from high school this month and I wonder how I'll feel when he goes off to college in the fall. I imagine Senator Clinton is having some of the same thoughts - who will I be then?
