The inside dope on Clinton’s VP? Maybe not



With speculation rampant about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s choice for vice president, and whether she’ll announce the selection in Tampa on Friday, the website for the Florida State Fairgrounds seemed to offer some clarity Thursday, at least for a little while.

Late Thursday afternoon, the fairground’s online calendar said Clinton's campaign rally on Friday would feature “Hillary & Running Mate” and “Announcing her VP.” A fairgrounds staffer told The Buzz the information came from the campaign website.

“Wow,” said a campaign spokeswoman. “Interesting.”

Minutes later, the web site was changed, saying merely that Clinton was coming to Tampa to talk about her vision and issues she would fight for as president.
