Wassup with Hillary and His Royal Phoniness?

They had a little “private” chat after Monday night’s highly entertaining debate:

Hillary Clinton and John Edwards met privately backstage following a very contentious Democratic presidential debate in this coastal city, sources with both campaigns confirm to CNN.

The meeting took place in the Edwards campaign green room.

One of the sources said the meeting happened by chance and the conversation consisted of light chatter. The source added that Clinton did jokingly take a jab at Edwards about his beating up on her during the debate. In fact, the real fireworks were between Clinton and Barack Obama.

An Edwards source noted that it was not surprising the two senators met backstage.

“That happens back there” said the source, who said it has happened “more often” with Obama. “It’s tight quarters – we’re all on top of each other.”

Uh huh.

Perhaps Hillary was imploring him to stay in the race until at least Super Tuesday, rather than bow out now and watch his supporters turn to Obama?

Oh, and I think the writer of the CNN piece should correct the following typo:

The meeting took place in the Edwards campaign green room.

Not green room, silly. It was the preen room.
