    report from the Hillary organizational meeting ^ | June 5, 2008 (orig. 8-2007) | dfu
    Below is my original report from the scene. Hillary and her organization planned to wrap it up by Super Tuesday. That was a fatal mistake. They ran out of money and didn't have the organization they needed in other states. Massive early absentee voting in California for Hillary was supposed to be leaked and have an impact on Iowa and New Hampshire. Her overconfidence, arrogance, hubris, and shrillness derailed the Hillary Express that was headed for the White House. WARNING: It is not over yet. She may well "suspend" her campaign on Saturday, but she is not giving up her...

    Dee Dee Myers has just come out with her amusing tale, Why Women Should Rule the World. You may recall Mrs. Myers was the first female White House press secretary, appointed during the first two tumultuous years of the Clinton administration. Simply put, Myers is a female supremacist. "Women tend to be better communicators, better listeners, better at forming consensus," she argues. That entitles women to run the world because they do everything better than those power-hungry men, Myers believes. As the unsmiling Myers goes about promoting her book, one wonders what led her to pen a tome filled with...

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign says the candidate will stop telling the story of an uninsured pregnant woman who lost the baby and died after being denied medical care, following a hospital raising questions over its accuracy. Clinton has frequently told the emotional story of the woman from rural Ohio since late February. In the speech, Clinton said the woman made minimum wage working at a local pizza restaurant, without insurance, when she became pregnant. Clinton said the woman ran into trouble, went to a hospital in a nearby county but was denied treatment because she couldn’t afford a $100 payment. In...

That's too bad, because Power has always been more open and honest than most key players you will find in or around presidential campaigns. Of course, the offhand remark by Power in a discussion recorded by a Scottish journalist was politically incorrect -- both because it was hurtful to Clinton, someone the Anna Lindh professor of practice of global leadership and public policy at Harvard's John F.

With Clinton facing what many consider must-win scenarios in both Ohio and Texas and both races too-close-to-call, the Clinton campaign charged that the Obama campaign had shut the doors on Clinton supporters at some of the caucuses, among other things.

The Democratic party, reflecting our lower standards regarding moral rectitude, defended Bill Clinton during his impeachment proceedings, arguing that it was just about sex. This defense was reflexive, especially given Hillary's diatribe against the "vast right wing conspiracy." Comforted by the knowledge that Bill had learned his lesson, Democrats turned to Hillary as their new standard bearer. She was not just the front-runner for her party's nomination, she was...

In an interview with CNN's Jessica Yellin, Dick Harpootlian, a former chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party and a supporter of Barack Obama, said some of Bill Clinton's recent remarks on the campaign trail were appeals based on race and gender. He said the comments were meant to "suppresses the vote, demoralize voters, and distort the record," and said they were "reminiscent of Lee Atwater."

    A conservative group must abide by campaign finance laws if it wants to run ads promoting its anti-Hillary Rodham Clinton movie, a federal court ruled Tuesday. Citizens United had hoped to run the television advertisements in key election states during peak primary season. The court ruling means the group must either keep its ads off the air or attach a disclaimer and disclose its donors. Lawyers for the group had argued its 90-minute "Hillary: The Movie" was no different from documentaries seen on television news shows "60 Minutes" and "Nova." That prompted skepticism and, at one point, outright laughter from...

    The Detroit Free Press reports the Michigan Democratic ballot "is a sham that was rigged by Hillary Rodham Clinton, her husband and her supporters to give the nation the impression that she's the leading candidate in Michigan, an angry former Sen. Don Riegle said Monday." Riegle said, "What happened in Michigan is not very different from what used to happen in the old Soviet Union. The Clinton machine manipulated the ballot. They don't care how they win, only that they do. It's wrong and people need to know that."

    Clinton Chooses Dancing Over Singing Monday, January 14, 2008 Dancing, singing or modeling? Hmm. Asked to choose what reality TV program she would prefer to compete on, Hillary Rodham Clinton chose the popular "Dancing With the Stars." "In my dreams I would be on 'America's Next Top Model' but in reality I would have to choose my limited talents and of them dancing is better than singing," Clinton said Monday during a taping of "The Tyra Banks Show." "You do not want me to sing." That was an apparent reference to her off-key rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner," which has...

    On the evening of Saturday January 17, 1998, the internet gossip merchant Matt Drudge posted a story that opened the most sensational scandal season in the history of the American presidency. He reported that Newsweek magazine had killed a story about President Clinton’s sexual relationship with a former intern. The next day he had her name: Monica Lewinsky. The mainstream media were slow to catch up, but by the following Tuesday they were reporting that Clinton was being investigated for encouraging others to lie to cover up the affair. For the next year the story dominated the headlines as Clinton...

    Hating presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has become such a national pastime, writer and radio producer Jack Hitt invented a verb for it: "hillarating." After her victory in New Hampshire, the former first lady and Democratic senator from New York appeared with a maniacal expression on the front page of one New York paper under the headline "Back from the Dead." TV anchormen use minutes of airtime poking fun at her looks. On the streets, feminists apologize before supporting her in a gossip session. Even artists have created racy sculptures of her. "I am very clearly someone who's gone through a...

    AUSTIN — The ability of the Democratic U.S. Senate nominee to raise national party money for the general election campaign in Texas may be hindered if Hillary Rodham Clinton is the party's presidential nominee, one-time senatorial candidate Mikal Watts said Tuesday. "If Hillary is the nominee, that will have an effect on whether the national Democrats will play in Texas," Watts said. "The prevailing thought is the Republicans don't have anybody who will motivate their base to get out. There are some who think Hillary will do that," he said. Watts said he has seen Texas polling that shows "right-wing...

    'My support among young people will grow,' she says. 'It is really picking up a lot of energy and steam.' Hillary Clinton pulled out a shocking win at the New Hampshire Democratic presidential primary on Tuesday, but amid all the pandemonium at her victory shindig, she made sure to give thanks to a key demographic: people like you. Not long after her upset — and firing up supporters with a victory speech at the Southern New Hampshire University gymnasium in Manchester — Clinton chatted with us about the role young people played in her win and their involvement with politics,...

    Turns out everything–and I mean everything–you’ve heard about Hillary is true. I received a stream of emails in reply to my item yesterday about rumors of an affair between Hillary Clinton and her aide, Huma Abedin. Often email writers make wild allegations but in this case I was provided solid evidence to back up the charges. For example, Robert Morrow, who describes himself as “one of the nation’s top experts on wild Hillary and wild Bill,” told me he’d learned from experience that “every crazy rumor about the Clintons is true.” For example, Hillary’s past lovers include Webb Hubbell (“probably...
