Hillary's 'Hush-Hush Powwow'

From the New York Post:

The New York senator was guest of honor at Tuesday's hush-hush powwow that raised speculation about a possible White House run in 2012. The gathering was hosted by California Sen. Dianne Feinstein and attended by Ellen Malcolm, founder of Emily's List, which supports pro-choice, female Dems; Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D-Calif.), chair of the New Democrat Coalition; and Hilary Rosen, former Recording Industry Association of America CEO, who's now political director of the Huffington Post.

A source tells Page Six they all met for dinner at Charlie Palmer Steak, a chophouse noted for its cellar of 10,000 bottles of wine and spectacular views of the Capitol.

"You could say Hillary met with her homegirls. They're all very powerful and important women," our insider said. "It's highly unlikely they were plotting anything around the VP spot because Hillary knows Barack Obama isn't going to pick her. They were probably planning her future."

What does this mean? Your guess is as good as mine. But this, along with the announcement that Hillary will be speaking on the second night of the DNC Convention, is being seen as closing the door officially on Hillary's VP quest.
