Sources inside the ruling Zanu-PF party of Zimbabwe have extended an open invitation to Senator Hillary Clinton to join the re-election team of president Robert Mugabe. A second round of elections is due to take place in the country on June 27, in which MDC candidate Morgan Tsvangirai is hoping to defeat the incumbent Mugabe.
According to Zanu-PF sources, the party has been impressed with Clinton's refusal to give up in the fight against Democratic hopeful Senator Barack Obama, despite the diminishing odds. They believe that following her exit from the US presidential race, Clinton could play a crucial role in helping to re-elect president Robert Mugabe, who has been in power since 1987. One Zanu-PF source has stated "Here, the gloves will really be off for Hillary. Forget assasination references - here she can go for the real thing." Sources within Sen. Clinton's camp have stated that they are "studying the offer."
