Shocker! Scaife endorses Hillary
'Right-wing conspiracy' leader now pushes Clinton for prez
WASHINGTON Richard Mellon Scaife, formerly No. 1 on Bill Clinton's enemies list as the so-called "marionette" of the "vast right-wing conspiracy," today formally endorsed Hillary Rodham Clinton for president proving, once again, politics makes strange bedfellows.
Scaife, who personally funded many of the investigations of the Clinton administration that led to the president's impeachment, used his Pittsburgh Tribune-Review newspaper to express support for Clinton.
Clinton faces a do-or-die primary in Pennsylvania Tuesday. Most state newspapers have endorsed her opponent, Barack Obama.
The Tribune-Review cited Obama's lack of experience and his widely criticized comments about bitter voters living in small towns.
"In sharp contrast, Clinton is far more experienced in government as an engaged first lady to a governor and a president, as a second-term senator in her own right," the paper's editorial said. "She has a real voting record on key issues. Agree with her or not, you at least know where she stands instead of being forced to wonder."
As surprising as the endorsement might appear, it is not entirely unexpected. Last month, Clinton met with the Tribune-Review's editorial board and Scaife, who also is a principle owner of NewsMax.com. Following that meeting, Scaife penned a personal editorial titled "Hillary, Reassessed," declaring how impressed he had been by the former first lady.
"Her meeting and her remarks during it changed my mind about her," Scaife wrote.
Scaife's mind has been changing about the Clintons for some time, as WND previously reported.
There is little question that when then-first lady Hillary Clinton famously lashed out at foes as a "vast, right-wing conspiracy," Scaife was one of the people on her mind....

A major frontal assault against Obama — from Operation Chaos?
I’m with Ann!
Conservatives for Hillary!
“She has a real voting record on key issues. Agree with her or not, you at least know where she stands instead of being forced to wonder.”
I don’t think there is ANY doubt as to where either one of these radical Marxists stands. The only difference between them really, is that she is female, and he is a radical, black racist.
Other than that, call me rubber stamp.
The Clintons must have something on him.
The conspiracy keeps getting bigger and more complex.
The Tribune Review, like Fox news has been drifting slowly but surely to port side. I don’t understand it, but there it is.
Operation Chaos continues ...
My thought exactly... : )
Every whore has a price.
Wonder what Hillary has on him?..
Before this election is over, Washington is going to burn. I predict that there will be political “hits” this year and if Obama is elected, full scale violence.
Don’t these fools remember what the Clintons did to us in the 1990’s? They accused conservatives as being terrorists and a bunch of other evil things.
I thought I’d never see the day when conservatives would be supporting another Clinton for the presidency. They would rather see that witch get into the White House rather than a good man like John McCain.
I really worry about my country nowadays.
