Destroying Herself

Timothy Noah writes:

What would it take for Clinton to start a stampede? A massive, catastrophic drop in the polls for Obama. But the only way for that to happen is for Clinton to tear into Obama so viciously, Lee Atwater-style, that she destroys her own reputation, causing her to lose the general election and very likely her Senate seat, too. Not going to happen. Clinton is determined, but she isn't insane.

This is part of why I think Clinton may now be running for veep. She may be trying to create a wound in the party that only a unity ticket can heal.
