Politico.com reveals that Bill Clinton made a desperate phone call to Ted Kennedy to try to forestall the latter's startling endorsement of Obama: "The announcement stunned Senate colleagues, who had expected Kennedy to remain neutral until the increasingly vitriolic nominating contest with Sen. Hillary Clinton settled out. 'This is the biggest Democratic endorsement Obama could possibly get short of Bill Clinton,' said a high-level Democrat.'"
New York Times on Monday, meanwhile, reveals, "Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign team, seeking to readjust after her lopsided defeat in South Carolina and amid a sense among many Democrats that Mr. Clinton had injected himself clumsily into the race, will try to shift the former president back into the sunnier, supportive-spouse role that he played before Mrs. Clinton’s loss in the Iowa caucuses, Clinton advisers said....Yet some advisers expressed concern that Mr. Clinton might prove difficult to rein in."
