Hillary charts a new course

  WASHINGTON -- Nearly 17 months after she declared she was "in it to win it," Hillary Clinton is about to get out of it.

   Finally, after nearly four months in second place, she plans to throw her support to Barack Obama here on Saturday.

   Now I know this is going to be a hard, sad day for many people. One of the little-noticed secrets of this campaign is that Clinton's supporters are just as passionate as Obama's, and now, finally and officially, their passion will turn to disappointment.

   But one thing is for sure. We have not heard the last from Hillary Clinton, not by a long shot.

   She could be Obama's vice president, or a great Senate icon, or a cabinet
secretary, or ... the Democratic nominee in 2012.

   Which will it be?
