A new book out about Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign reveals that as the bitter primary season progressed, Clinton aides kept a "Traitor List," even ranking those Democrats who she felt had betrayed her.
The list included rankings, with those who were considered the most egregious traitors by Clinton loyalists receiving the worst possible score of 7 on a point scale.
Then-Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), who would ultimately succeed Clinton as Secretary of State in the Obama administration, was among those receiving the blackest of black marks, according to the book HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton by The Hill's Amie Parnes and Politico's Jonathan Allen.
So too was Kerry's Senate colleague from Massachusetts, Edward Kennedy, who died in 2009. Also on the political hit-list were Sens. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) as well as Reps. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Rob Andrews (D-N.J.) and Baron Hill (D-Ind).
The book makes clear the depth of the wounds inflicted during the primary struggle.
"Years later," Parnes and Allen write, Clinton aides "would joke about the fates of folks who they felt had betrayed them. 'Bill Richardson: investigated; John Edwards: disgraced by scandal; Chris Dodd: stepped down,' one said to another. 'Ted Kennedy,' the aide continued, lowering his voice to a whisper for the punch line, 'dead.'"
Kerry was the Democratic Party's standard-bearer in the 2004 presidential election and President Clinton had campaigned hard for him in the final stretch of that campaign, even though he was recovering from major heart surgery at the time.
In 2008, however, Kerry did not merely endorse Obama; he did so at a very vulnerable time for the then-senator from Illinois.

Kerry would be #1 on my traitors list.
This show is going to be even better than The Sopranos...
It warms my heart to know that Claire McKaskill is pee-ing in her pants.
Herself and hubby, or would that be redundant?
The Clintons get high marks on my Traitor list as well.
Add me to the list, you treasonous hag.
It’s amazing that this documented pathological liar has made it this far. It’s like she made a pack with Satan who is progressing her to the end game. Sold her soul to Satan Himself.
Even thought the final result was awful (Obama as president), I did have a laugh at the Clinton’s portrayed as nasty racists by the Obamatons. Especially after Slick Willy was supposedly the first black president. That had to leave a lot of bad feelings. (snicker)
That bartender at the Hilton. She’s sure he was watering down her drinks.
And you on it Slick!
Guess that old FBI list she had when in the WH will come in handy now.
Don’t forget—Hillary had her hands on over 700 FBI files. I am pretty certain she copied every page of every file.
It is sad that the Dems have redfined words like Marriage, Rights, and Treason. All have lost the real meaning.
