Hillary Rodham Clinton met late Thursday with Barack Obama, a day after saying she would end her quest for the Democratic nomination and endorse the Illinois senator.Oh, to be a fly on that particular wall! Whatever negotiations are involved, you can be sure that Hillary's staggering campaign debt -- including the money she loaned her own campaign -- is central to the discussion. The Hill reports:
A senior Obama campaign official confirmed to NBC News that Obama delayed his departure from Washington Thursday night to meet with Clinton at her home here.
Geraldine Ferraro has a plan for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) to recoup her sizable campaign debt: Have Sen. Barack Obama's (D-Ill.) fundraisers pick up the tab. . . .This will be a chance to see how Obama, who has said he is willing to meet with Ahmadinejad without preconditions, handles very sensitive diplomatic negotiations.
[T]he campaign has accumulated debt of more than $19 million, according to campaign finance reports. . . .
Ferraro told The Hill, "These are the people raising hundreds of thousands of dollars. I would hope that [Obama] would do the same thing with his fundraisers to pay off Hillary's debt."
