While Obama's Away, Clinton's at Play

    As Barack Obama frolics with his family in Hawaii, others have been busy scheming

    Like a modern-day Bela Lugosi, the Clinton Machine has climbed out of its coffin and started it's Long March to Denver - site of the Democratic National Convention later this month.

    "One day she's on a YouTube video talking about the need for a 'catharsis' at the Democratic convention, which sounds suspiciously like a demand to have her name put in nomination for a roll call," writes Michael Goodwin of the New York Daily News. "Then an interview surfaces of Bubba refusing to say Obama is ready to be President. And close aide Howard Wolfson rips the scab off the primary wounds by saying Hillary would have won if the media had exposed John Edwards' affair earlier."

    And what will Hillary and her minions have waiting for Obama when he finally comes back from the beach?

    "Hillary’s orchestrating a play within the play in Denver. Just as Hamlet used the device to show that his stepfather murdered his father, Hillary will try to show the Democrats they chose the wrong savior," says The New York Times' Maureen Dowd.

    No matter what happens, it sure to make for some gripping theater.
