Hillary: Big rewards?

Hillary may not want to stop until there's blood on the Convention floor, but apparently Big Rewards Await Clinton If She Ends Campaign Now. Like a Discover card, there are cash rewards,
One of the most inviting is the near certainty that the Obama campaign would agree to pay back the $11.4 million she has loaned her own bid, along with an estimated $10 million to $15 million in unpaid campaign expenses.
$25 million bucks.

(Let's not forget we've been hearing this question for a while now.)

Ponder that:
On the one hand, you have lived in the hintherlands so you were married to a future President, put up with the most abject humiliations from him, clawed and lied and scraped and cannived to get where you are. You have put in $11 million of your own money. Your entire life, your very identity is predicated on being the Democrat presidential candidate because you think that if you get to be, you will be The President.

On the other hand, $25,000,000.

What would you choose? Going out like Al Gore?
If Al Gore is the model, Hillary can stay in past the convention, demand a recount, and wait until the Supreme Court tells her it’s over. Which, come to think of it, might be exactly her plan.
Or the money now?

What ship is the Hillary Kamikaze crashing?

Logic says she gives up, but I have trouble seeing it, even for $25 million. As you point out, her whole life, including staying with a serial philanderer, has been geared to this moment. She wants power, and the Senate isn't enough. Like Lady Macbeth, she sees the "dagger of the mind."

I've gone back and forth on this, but, with friendly states in West Virginia and Kentucky coming up, I think she goes on. The lust for power is too much.

She's in it until the convention where she'll try to get Florida and Michigan seated.
