Scapegoating: Clinton Ditches Campaign Manager

It’s been a tough new year for the campaign of Hillary Clinton, pictured above in one of the creepiest pictures I’ve ever seen of her.  After dominating in the polls all though 2007, she saw her status of “inevitable” shattered by Obama’s win in Iowa.  For a moment it seemed like she might recover and keep her strong hold on the front-runner position as she “won” in both New Hampshire and Nevada.  However, after Obama’s strong first-place finish in South Carolina, her double-digit leads in national polls began to erode.  Super Tuesday, which she once thought would crown her as the Democratic nominee, began to look uncertain.  While she still retained her lead after Super Tuesday, largely because of superdelegates, Obama won the majority of the states, a feat that seemed impossible less than four months earlier.  Now after a weekend of losing four state nominating contests, and her staff predicting that she won’t win another one until March, Clinton’s campaign manager is finally “stepping down.” Patti Solis Doyle announced her departure Sunday.  She will be replaced by senior adviser Maggie Williams.

I don’t envy Maggie Williams.  She’ll have a tough time breaking Obama’s momentum at this point.  I doubt there is any one person to blame, but the Clinton campaign has messed up pretty badly to blow the lead they had just a few months earlier.  We’ll see if the Clinton campaign changes their approach with this new manager.

  1. […] reported earlier that Hillary Clinton has brought in long-time adviser Maggie Williams as her new campaign manager. […]

  2. The Clinton campaign didn’t have a healthcare plan befor it felled and they don’t have one now. Well to be honest, if everyone is a goverment employee, then the Clinton healthcare plan will work for everyone. Unfortunately some are self employed, independent contractors or work for private employors or small business. Under the Clinton healthcare plan these people would be penalized if they don’t pay for their healthcare. This means that most of your family members and friends will have their paychecks garnished. We all know that it doesn’t stop their if it is a goverment enforcement. There will be fines and then misdemeanors which is a criminal offense defined as less serious than a felony. Why did Ms. Clinton decide on this approach? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out. Big business, big Corporation call it what you will, they want their money back and in order for Ms. Clinton to get their support in her race to presidency she is giving victory to one side (the healthcare providers) by promising to them that she will have the poeople wages garnished if they continue to give healthcare. Thus allowing her to shout the words “UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE” This is a shady tactic and makes fools out of every american that falls for trick. The Obama healthcare plan is for the people. Poor people, middle class and rich people can rest assured that there is no tricks or penalties in the Obama healthcare plan. VOTE OBAMA!!
