    Wink Hillary Clinton backers already crying and stamping their feet over VP pick

    (CNN) — Evan as Hillary Clinton praised the newly-minted Democratic presidential ticket Saturday, some in her circle are furious Barack Obama did not appear to give the New York Democrat serious consideration for the No. 2 spot, or even ask for her consultation on the matter.

    "Set aside that Obama said she'd be on anybody's short list, set aside anybody's feelings on whether she was deliberately snubbed and the pros and cons of whether it should be her," a former Clinton strategist told CNN's Candy Crowley. "Focus on the politics of it and you have about a quarter of Clinton loyalists still not joining the caravan…for God's sake, not to even make a show of taking her seriously is flatly stupid."

    A top Clinton advisor also told CNN they were "outraged," over how the process was conducted.

    "You can't put [Obama VP vetters] Eric Holder and Caroline Kennedy on an hour plane ride to Chappaqua just to check the box? They should have done it just for the optics," this person said. "Barack never even said to her, 'Here's how I envision the job'– not one discussion with her about [the position]."

    "They thought her supporters were mad before? They are really mad now," this person also said. We knew it was never going to happen but you would have thought they might at least make a show of it."

    Former Clinton strategist Paul Begala echoed similar frustrations on CNN Friday night.

    "I think there are a lot of Hillary voters who are going to say, 'Hey, wait a minute, man You said you were going to put her on the short list. You know, you didn't even vet her. You didn't call her. You didn't seek her advice,'" Begala said. "By the way, he didn't seek President Clinton's advice either. He's actually the guy who I think picked the best vice president in American history. You would think maybe you would sort of check in with him."

    Meanwhile, two sources familiar with Obama's VP search tell CNN's Roland Martin Clinton was very much under consideration, and it's wrong for anyone to suggest that she wasn't.

    If she can't be VP, they should at least give her one of these:

    ROTFLMAO! Maybe that would shut them the hell up. I am so, so, so, so sick of hearing about the Clintons and/or her supporters whining about all of this. Just grow the fuck up, deal with the fact that you lost and move on already.

    Although I never expected her to be put on the ticket, I have to agree that at least making a show of it might have been a step toward unifying the party.

    Then again, maybe it is beyond repair.

    Come on, this isn't kindergarten. you shouldn't need to "make a show of it" for a grown women and her supporters. Please people let's move on to November
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    Not for her, but for the 18 million that voted for her. Nothing wrong with offering a symbolic gesture that wouldn't cost anything. That is if unifying the party is more important than personal feelings.

    Unifying the party is more important than personal feelings.

    That's true.

    So the Crazy Clintonistas shouldn't need a token gesture, they should grow up and fall into line.

    Grow up and fall into line. Thanks Grimmlock. Would that be the line for applying for citizenship in America? Always nice to have a Canadian opinion on the American presidential race.

    God, are you still treading on that? You're boring.

    Use your vast, expansive education to think up some new lines.
