Who's #1 on Hillary's 'traitor' list?
American Thinker ^ | 01/13/2014 | Rick Moran

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 Hill:

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.

It warms my heart to know that Claire McKaskill is pee-ing in her pants.

"Add me to the list, you treasonous hag."

You don't want to be on that list. In order to be a traitor, that means at one time you had to have been an ally. No, I prefer to stay on the plain old enemies list...

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)

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.

Obama knocked her out of her rightful place as First Woman President of the United States.

That’s strange. Hillary and I have something in common. The names on her list coincide with my list of traitors.

Hillary, gazing into a mirror:

"But now, we have come almost to the end. One last step. And then when I take power, they will be pulled down and ground into dirt for what they did to you. And what they did in so contemptuously underestimating me."
