Clinton Adviser Resigns Over Obama Comments Obama Reveals Teen Drug Use In His Memoir
POSTED: 9:51 am EST December 13, 2007 CONCORD, N.H. -- Bill Shaheen has resigned as co-chairman of Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign, reported WMUR-TV in Manchester, N.H.
The resignation comes in the midst of fallout over comments Shaheen made regarding candidate Barack Obama's past drug use.
Shaheen earlier said he regrets having made the comments.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Shaheen said the Democratic party should beware of picking Obama as its candidate because Republicans could dredge up his past.
In his memoir, "Dreams from My Father," Obama wrote that as a teen he smoked marijuana and drank alcohol, and occasionally would snort cocaine.
The Clinton campaign said it had nothing to do with the comments, and Shaheen himself is now backing away from them.

One of the many attack ‘Trial Ballons’ to be sent up by the Clintons.
“In his memoir, “Drugs from My Father,” Obama wrote ...”
“By the way Senator Clinton, have you ever used drugs for recreational purposes? Marajuana? Cocaine? LSD? Heroin? Mushrooms?????”
Gee. I’m glad he didn’t call Obama a f——— jew b———
He has “retired” with a huge check having accomplished his task.
Billy Goat, according to his half-brother, has a “nose like a vacuum cleaner.”
Hillary’s old boyfriend intimated that she DID use drugs.....wonder if he’s still ALIVE??
He was following orders, which included falling on the grenade.
Lemme guess. He resigned so he could spend more time with his family. Hope his life insurance is paid up.
Reagan was probably one of the last presidents to have never used drugs. Just a fact of life.
I just dropped the same question to NBC news, asking if they had a real reporter with a backbone to ask the question, since Obama has come clean and other candidates are being asked.
Another one bites the dust, another one bites the dust...
No, he resigned so his wife, Jeanne (still with the campaign I assume) could spend more time with Hillary.
Hillary’s Addicted to Carpet,Especially Middle Eastern Carpet.........
"Did I tell you I'm sorry we told everyone that Obama has a drug problem? Let me repeat it."
Yes, but since absolutely no one in the press has the guts to ask about that, perhaps someone will ask about this!
In the Clinton Mafia, you are offered two choices: toe the line and accept a nice severance package/anonymity (see Webb Hubbell, Susan McDougal); be put out of commission (see Vince Foster, Jim McDougal).
LOL crazy like a fox, those flying monkeys are. Note the story repeats the allegations, for about the kazillionth time today. Tomorrow there will be a story about the replacement. Saturday they will rest for Sunday’s talk shows where it will be repeated all over again.
Is Mrs. Clinton still beating her husband?
