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.

We know he cant get off Nicotine!!! I’ll net they have much more on Obama!!
Dan Rather would own up to at least some of those including the H. But it was strictly for “experimental” purposes as a journalist.
The bloodletting begins....
How many more reinventions of the candidate will occur, and how many more heads will roll? This is like watching the Gambinos clean house, gangland style.
life is good when you’re the metrosexual husband of the governor of nh.
LOOK... it's TouristSenator!!!
It shows up in more places than TouristGuy,
only with less style and substance...
she's Vaporware, just an empty crusty.
(Please spread me around like the parasite that i am...)
In a related statement he said Republicans might ask Edwards about his love child, and Biden about his screaming matches with his wife.../s
LOL! Now I know what it meant when they called HilLIARy a carpet bagger.
I wouldn’t worry too much about lil’ Bill - his wife Jeannie (a true-blue pro-abortion ‘Catholic’) is still on Shrillary’s payroll and will be in for a big payoff if the election goes right. Lil’ Bill isn’t much of a man anyway.
Exactly, this guy got off easy.
I’d stay off single engine aircraft too if I were him.
You’re giving her too much credit....it’s much more likely that a hearty “mistakes were made” was expressed.
Oh please. The campaign knew nothing. They put it out there and then told him to fall on his sword to cover their tracks. Does anyone (besides the MSM) believe these people?
“Another klintonite falls on his sword for the bitch. He did what he was ordered to do, which included his own suicide.”
Hopefully, Sununu will use the name Billy Shaheen in his fight against his hack sister in the upcoming senatorial race.
Tow the line or wear a toe tag!
Actually, it's his wife who is running against Sununu.
and the clintin campaign is shocked that someone might have been on drugs?????????????? This is such a joke. I’m not a dem/lib but I would vote for Obama in a heartbeat. Did anyone see the debate today? Looks like the campaign is taking its toll on hilllereeee.
Hillary has a HUGE set of BAGS under her eyes!!
If as many friends testify, JFK, Jr. was going to run against Hillary in the NY Senate Primary in 2000@ Who do You think would win the Election? the Carpetbagger???????
or John F. Kennedy, Jr. ?
