On Deep Background – Hillary’s Campaign Staffers Getting Resumes Out.

Posted on 01/07/2008 8:53:13 AM PST by MindBender26

On Deep Background – Hillary’s Campaign Staffers Getting Resumes Out.

Just off the phone with DC contacts. At least two major PR/Lobbying firms in DC have received a number of resumes and cover letters from Clinton campaign staffers. Apparently they are not being sent to other campaigns yet, as that would be “too disloyal.”

By sending them to the DC firms, they are trying to avoid the “rush to the lifeboats.” That way they can get short-term job back in DC on an issues-related campaign and be available to return to active work for a presidential candidate once it’s down to one or two real possibilities. No one wants to be the "last man standing" in Hillaryland.

The way they are doing it without being caught by a paranoid Hillary is by having the resumes ready to be faxed and e-mailed by a friend, and then simply sending some sort of “John has a long moustache” message to that friend. Then the friend dispatches the faxes and e-mails without any discernable action on the part of the staffer.

Jumping from Hillary to Obama or Edwards right now would be seen as “bad juju,” but a month working on some liberal issue campaign or for some Senator or Congressmember gives them deniability.

The people doing this are not the “true believers” but rather the pros who saw working for Hillary as a way to make a living while positioning themselves for jobs in the next (Democratic) administration. After two years in the administration, it then would be over to a K Street lobbying shop for two or six years, then on to the next campaign, and the cycle repeats itself.

The resumes going out are an indication that they see it as probably over, and that the money will be drying up fast….. and they should know….

When Hillary is no longer in the Senate and her dreams of Presidential Imortality are behind her, she’s not going to have a governor for a husband.

Who’s going to give the wench a job then? LMAO...

Maybe she can sell big screen TVs or used cars on television. But then her negatives will drive customers away. I guess that’s a flawed fall back...

Har Har. Hillary is such a slimeball that they have set up code word messages to get their resumes out. That would be scary if it weren't so darn funny -- in the pathetic way that it is funny when some disliked hatchet man for the boss loses his job after the boss loses his . . . Fall Hillary! Let us take on Barack Hussein Obama with his vast (snort) experience (and I'm not talking about his experience selling drugs . . . no! I'm talking about his main political experience, being in the Illinois House.) Whew. He'll be a hard on to beat.

No it is not. It is an indication that

1. When $ dry up, they dry up fast!
2. The Dem pros are about as loyal as a two $ hooker
3. They know they still have to eat.
4. Last man standing takes the blame.

Agreed.

She’s been prepping for this her whole life.
I can’t believe she’ll just drop out without killing someone first. Without killing everybody first.

Unless maybe she drops out, then kills Hussein just before the convention, where she is then drafted by popular demand.

I would agree on all counts. She’s such an egomaniac though. I can’t imagine her sitting at home.

And I wouldn’t count her out just yet either.

Whoever's abandoning her ship is a fool. She's in it to win, nothing short of that. This is a setup for "The Comeback Kid, Part Deux" - nothing more.

The Beast will be in the general election - and all of the young Osamabama fanatics won't be voting for her, having their young idealism crushed by the democrat machine.

Or at least that's how I see it this Monday morning...

This fits nicely with the other thread which says that Hillary is now not taking advice from her staff, but is insisting on calling all the shots herself.

I imagine a lot of the professionals on her staff decided to make their move as soon as she made her new approach clear.

The pledges are drying up fast!

There's two types of pledges; pledges for donations and the pledges from super-delegates. The donations may be easier to track than the delegates. But it could be that both are beginning to dry up (the delegates making noise about changing their pledge).

The third dynamic, of course, is public perception and how that plays out in the primaries. And as primaries fall to someone other than Hillary, the greater affect this will have on the pledges.

I doubt many super-delegates want their commitment to create a battle within the party between them and the public. But, time will tell.

I would not count her out yet. Iowa nor NH usually decide the race on either side as history shows.

I also wonder how much “support” at the Iowa polls was from young people from out of state who came to campaign for Obama and participated in the caucus. It’s a strange system there with little to prevent voter fraud as I understand it.

Its still the first inning despite all the excitement from the media.

Agreed that this is very unlikely - they have too much $ to spend on staffers (ride that gravy train).

Where did these rumors come from? Are we sure that they are not being planted to then show the MSM that she is the 2nd comeback kid.

I want to believe that she is in trouble, but just cant ...

However, i am usually wrong on these things
