On Deep Background Hillarys 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 its 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
rats, sinking ship...
first RATS off the sinking ship!
beat me by thirty seconds...............
...trying not to grasp too noticeably at the lifesavers being tossed in their direction..they’ll be climbing all over each other to get one in the very near future....SAVE YOURSELVES!! lol!
Wonder if Bill sent his???
This has to be propaganda- this is all a little too good to be true.
Do you hear that GIANT SUCKING SOUND?..................
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...
This seems to be way too fast for an 8 year election campaign season. Keep your powder dry.
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.
“President Barak Obama”, we might have to get used to saying that..
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.
Well, I just got this from FNC in my email:
LATEST FOX NEWS POLL SHOWS MCCAIN, OBAMA SURGING INTO NEW HAMPSHIRE LEAD ON EVE OF PRIMARY
You're on the right track
Smart move ... either they are off the sinking ship or one step ahead of their coworkers when the blame-anybody-but-the-candidate firings start.
