Denver Just Became Boring

Hillary Clinton has decided that the political game is a marathon and not a sprint. She's releasing her delegates.
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, hoping to unite the Democratic Party and cement her future in it, will gather her hard-won primary delegates Wednesday at a reception where she is expected to formally release them to Barack Obama.

The New York senator has invited her pledged delegates to a reception at the Colorado Convention Center, not far from the main Democratic National Convention arena.

The high-profile gathering of political regulars who once fought against Obama serves a dual purpose for Clinton: Show fellow Democrats that she can be a team player, and display her still-formidable political strengths for the future. Many of her supporters want her to run for president again.

The only question left is will Hillary truly be a team player, or will the Clintons maneuver to ensure her a shot against John McCain in 2012?
