David Kuo argues that Obama will benefit from casting Hillary Clinton’s Kumbaya talk about possibly choosing him as her presidential running mate:

[A]s these things often do, this will backfire. She has given Sen. Obama the thing he didn’t have after her big wins in Ohio and Texas – she has given him a way to attack her while still being positive.
He doesn’t have to spend much time talking about her taxes or donors to the Clinton library or anything else. He can put her on the defensive just as he has.

But doesn’t Hillary’s Kumbaya talk give her a way to sound Obamaesque? With so many Democrats clamoring for a Clinton-Obama ticket, Clinton comes off looking like the team player while Obama suddenly appears to be serving his own best interest rather than the party’s.
