We hear

... that the Clinton campaign has called the Obama campaign looking to get the two electoral combatants together on the phone tonight. What will they talk about? A joint ticket? Hillary suspending her campaign after Indiana? How to hit back against Cindy McCain's plagiarized recipe-gate? The world awaits...

But remember, you heard this unsubstantiated rumor here, at Politirazzi, first!
