Hmmm. Where have we heard THIS before?

A pair of Ohio companies owed more than $25,000 by Clinton for staging events for her campaign are warning others in the tight-knit event production community — and anyone else who will listen — to get their cash upfront when doing business with her. Her campaign, say representatives of the two companies, has stopped returning phone calls and e-mails seeking payment of outstanding invoices. One even got no response from a certified letter.

Oh wait. I remember! Haven’t we had enough deficit spending? We need a President who is ready […]

Leahy to Clinton: Drop Out

On March 28, 2008 By

Vermont Public Radio

“There is no way that Senator Clinton is going to win enough delegates to get the nomination. She ought to withdraw and she ought to be backing Senator Obama. Now, obviously that’s a decision that only she can make. Frankly I feel that she would have a tremendous career in the Senate.”

Three More Months of Fighting?

On March 28, 2008 By

This morning Howard Dean announced that he wants all of the super delegates to endorse by July 1st.

July 1st!? That’s over three months from now! I’m not sure I can take three more months of Hillary and Barack beating each other up over tiny, meaningless things that may or may not have been said or happened.

I know that Montana and South Dakota are holding their primaries on June 3rd – how about we make the superdelegates decide by June 4th?

Better still: let’s move up the rest of the primaries and caucuses – Guam, Indiana, North Carolina, […]

In a 3/25 PR, Team Billary says:

Sen. Obama consistently and falsely claims that he was a law professor. The Sun-Times reported that, “Several direct-mail pieces issued for Obama’s primary [Senate] campaign said he was a law professor at the University of Chicago. He is not. He is a senior lecturer (now on leave) at the school. In academia, there is a vast difference between the two titles. Details matter.” In academia, there’s a significant difference: professors have tenure while lecturers do not. [Hotline Blog, 4/9/07; Chicago Sun-Times, 8/8/04]

From 1992 […]

Spot freakin’ on:

(CNN) – Sen. Chris Dodd said Thursday a protracted Democratic presidential race would be “devastating” to the party, and argued an agreement should be worked out after the upcoming contests in Pennsylvania, Indiana, and North Carolina.

Dodd, a former presidential candidate and current backer of Barack Obama’s White House bid, told the National Journal he thinks it’s a forgone conclusion Obama will be the Democratic presidential nominee, and said he thinks it’s about time party leaders bring the race to a conclusion.

Listen to Dodd:

“Over the next couple of weeks, as we get into April, it […]

Clinton Supers Starting to Sour

On March 27, 2008 By

NBC’s Matthew Berger:

At a time when Sen. Hillary Clinton is increasingly relying on superdelegates to vault her to the Democratic Party’s nomination, a handful of undecided and pledged superdelegates are coming forward to say her campaign’s tactics in recent weeks are doing more harm than good.

Doesn’t sound like supers are buying the continually refined rationales behind why they should support Clinton over the leading Obama:

“Periodically, over the last couple of weeks, you will see a news story or get something from the campaign, and you’ll go, ‘How stupid do you think I am?” one uncommitted superdelegate said. […]

Tim was hopping all over this earlier today, and rightly so. Hillary bringing up Pastor Wright conveniently in an editorial meeting with the architect of the “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy”.

It’s so inexplicable that Hillary apologists over at BSB were making shit up to try to deflect. It was pretty hilarious. They were also using the familiar “hey! you can’t attack us back! what happened to hope!” thing. Tiring. They, of course, got called on it – which of course sends them flailing.

Having stuff all in one place is really nice. That’s why Full Story...

Clinton’s 2012 Strategy?

On March 26, 2008 By

Could this be what it’s all about?

Her goal is to defeat Obama by destroying him in the next month or two, not by making a positive argument about herself. By ramping up his negatives, she also has an added threat to the superdelegates: nominate him and you’ll elect McCain. And if she cannot destroy him this time, and he gets the nomination, she will have so anathematized him with a segment of voters that McCain will beat him, and she gets to say “told you so” and run again in 2012.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says the Democratic presidential nomination will be decided before the August convention. “I had a conversation with [Democratic National Committee Chairman] Governor [Howard] Dean today,” Reid told the paper. “Things are being done.”

Hill Said:

“I think that what we have to wait and see is what happens in the next three months. There’s been a lot of talk about what if, what if, what if. Let’s wait until we get some facts. … Over the next months, millions of people are going to vote. And we should wait […]

Obama put his tax records in a big fat pdf and put them on his website. Maybe a Hillary supporter (or apologist, whatever you call yourselves these days – the “balance” folks) can show me where on Clinton’s website I might be able to go to find this same type of information. I’ve been looking all night and I’ll be damned if I can find it!

Hey PA, you listening? Don’t get duped like Ohio did!

5 strategy meetings for approval

Helped to block labor and environmental opposition

Sure doesn’t sound like opposition “from day one” to me. I wonder if the good union people in her commercials could tell she was lying to their faces:

Remember when John Edwards took exception to her laughing about NAFTA?

Where have you gone John Edwards? You can stop this madness you know. Right ahead of the NC primary even! Stand up and be counted man. While it still matters.
