Hillary implies Obama campaign used gender attack against Sarah Palin

One-time presidential candidate Hillary Clinton refused to go along with an Obama campaign attack against Sarah Palin in 2008 that she saw as gender baiting, according to an except from her new memoir reported Friday.

NBC News’ Kelly O’Donnell said during a morning segment on “The Today Show” that despite reconciling with the Obama camp after the primaries, Clinton didn’t endorse the campaign’s anti-Palin line upon her selection as John McCain’s vice-presidential nominee.

“When Sarah Palin was picked by John McCain, Clinton refused to back up a ‘dismissive statement’ from Obama’s campaign,” O’Donnell reported.

“‘I was not going to attack Palin just for being a woman appealing for support from other women … so I said no,’” Clinton wrote in the book, O’Donnell continued.

“Today” has a few other revelations from the memoir here.

Clinton’s book, “Hard Choices,” is due out June 10.

There’s something hidden here. Hillary has no principles and tells no truths. Period.

Every sentence, every word, every punctuation mark in that book is political - either offensive or defensive. But it’s political.

She’s incapable of telling the truth even by accident.

Here’s what I’m getting from all these excerpts: “I agreed to be a part of this administration. However I disagreed with everything they did and I had no part in anything that went wrong.”

Was she too busy writing her pre-presidential memoirs to pay attention to pleas for extra security from Ambassador Stephens in Libya? It would take quite a while to cover up all her dirty laundry in one tome.

From the mouth of the pathological liar. Will say anything to divert from the truth.

A gender attack? Was this a grammar battle?

This is code for the gender card she plans to play during 2016 when some mean ol’ white men attack her.

During Obama’s first campaign, his flunkies tried to say she was racist, so I guess it is only fair.
