Following up on my earlier post, Hillary probably does prefer Dean. But she only gets the benefit of Dean’s loss if she appears to oppose him. I suppose the other argument is that Hillary wants Clark for the good reason that Clark may make her the Vice-Presidential candidate. That really would help her, so long as the ticket does reasonably well. So Dean or Clark, Hillary wins. On the other hand, Hillary as Clark’s V-P candidate would hurt her if they lose big.
