After Columnist Bob Novak Suggests Alleged Scandal Saturday , November 17, 2007 Hillary Clinton's campaign insisted Saturday it is not sitting on any scandalous information about rival Barack Obama, after conservative columnist Robert Novak wrote that the Democratic frontrunner was holding on to a secret that could wound Obama's campaign.

Novak wrote in a three-paragraph item Saturday that "agents of Sen. Hillary Clinton are spreading the word in Democratic circles that she has scandalous information about her principal opponent for the party's nomination, Sen. Barack Obama, but has decided not to use it."

Novak wrote that the nature of the alleged scandal is not known but "this word-of-mouth among Democrats makes Obama look vulnerable and Clinton look prudent."

Clinton spokesman Jay Carson said "we have absolutely no idea what he's talking about. ... We have no contact with Bob Novak; we have no idea what this column is based on."

Asked if the campaign had any secret information about Obama, he said, "No. No, we don't."

Of course not. A Clinton crony not officially with the campaign has it and will release it anonymously to the media at the proper time ‘for the children’.

That's because nothing a klinton would do or say do they consider dirty.

Hillery is a political lightweight.

She is not qualified to be president of the United States.

Well, let’s parse this. It’s not a secret if three people know it. And Hillary has a very large staff of hatchet people.

In other words, if a dirty secret about Obama leaks out, it did not come from us.

I don’t like Hilary at all, but I’ve gotta give her and her people credit on this one. As politics goes (politics in the nastiest sense), this was a brilliant stroke.
The best part is that whether there is any dirt on Obama is completely irrelevant. They’ve planted a seed that there’s something lurking there, and the Clinton camp has complete deniability because Novak (or, “those dirty trick republicans”) is the one who breaks it. If a democrat sypathizer had broken the story, the Clintons would have had to ‘fess up or completely repudiate the story. Since it’s Novak who breaks it, they just call it a dirty republican trick to divide the party.

You have to admit there is a sick fascination element to watching Hilary and her people work.

Well that settles it. If the Klinton Kamp denies a report, it can't possibly be true.

What about those 900 FBI files she has? Maybe one of those files is Obama’s.

The Clinton camp might not have any, but I surely do.

For the time being, we need to concentrate on Hillary though, and if the need arises which I think it won't, Obama's boat can be sunk in one shot.

I’ve got the ammunitions to slam Hillary, and Fox is nearby the ammuntions against Obama. I’m pretty confident the next election will be won by a Republican candidate.

Welcome to the real world, people!!

Billary will probably be our next prez...whether we like it or not. The Clinton’s are nasty, sneaky people. One way or another, between the two of them, they will lie, cheat, cause havoc to get her elected. I, on the other hand, may find a home in Australia, New Zealand, etc.

In a related story, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad assures the world that Iran has no intention of developing nuclear weapons.

Novak has been called a liar. Let's see how he responds. He's a tough guy and journalists don't like being called liars or being used as pawns. I think/hope we'll hear more from him.

If something does come out about Obama down the road, and it's not from Hillary, everyone will think it was because of this. It inoculates Obama, IMO.

This might help Hillary in the short term, which might be all she needs to take Iowa, but it could prove to be a bad strategy long term.

Yeap, they will let us all know next that Obama was a Republican before he was a Democrat.

Thats the greatest Dem sin any of them could commit in their twisted eyes, these days.

You can see Hillery's staff chanting around a boiling pot, " Crucify Him!"

These idiots are a sick bunch of pussies, and we want THAT for president?

Send her on a motorcade tour of Dallas.

Camp Clinton may be using terrorist tactics. They call in a bomb scare, just to check out the response. If that the case, Obama seems very weary of getting unloaded on. And his response looked very parnoid, not as paranoid as Ross Perot who thought the Bushies were going to sabotage his daughter’s wedding, but pretty paranoid for someone apparently saner to begin with than Perot.

They can’t be secrets because Hillary and her entire mob know about them. Therefore, Hillary isn’t lying when she says she doesn’t have any secrets.
