Is Hillary a cheap date?

She should be outraged by this insult:
Some Democrats terrified that their bloody primary campaign will doom them in
November are floating a consolation prize for Hillary Clinton: governor of New York. . . .
They want her to consider the option if she concludes after the April 22 Pennsylvania primary that she cannot overtake Barack Obama for the party's presidential nomination. Hillary Clinton, while fully committed to continuing her presidential campaign, was said to be open to discussing the idea, while Bill Clinton rejected it out of hand.
Via HotAir, where Allah speculates:
The bigger question is where this idea originated. Is it real, or is it the fevered imagination of the Obama oppo team?
My hunch: Bill himself concocted this idea, which is why the story comes with the assurance that Bill's already rejected it. Brilliant lie, expert media spin -- if it wasn't Bill, who else could it be?

Besides, who but Bill would dare breathe this insulting rumor that Hillary -- who still stands a slender chance to win the presidential nomination, despite the long odds against her -- would consider accepting this puny "consolation prize"?

She's already a popular and influential U.S. senator, an office whose perks and prestige exceed those of the governor of New York. Asking Hillary to trade the glamour of Washington for the drudgery of Albany? Oh, I'm just sure she was "open to discussing the idea."
No, this dishonest rumor had to have been concocted by Bill, with the expert media placement and timing to ensure that Hillary will be asked about it on the Sunday talk shows, thus generating fodder for the Monday newspapers, etc. A dirty trick, in other words.
