Throughout her failed 2008 presidential campaign, aides to Hillary Clinton, kept a detailed “hit list” of political enemies. The list was made up of people who had crossed her by endorsing Barack Obama, claim Jonathan Allen & Amie Parnes in their new book “HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton.”
Here is a small snippet of a larger excerpt of the upcoming book posted at the Politico:
There was a special circle of Clinton hell reserved for people who had endorsed Obama or stayed on the fence after Bill and Hillary had raised money for them, appointed them to a political post or written a recommendation to ice their kid’s application to an elite school. On one early draft of the hit list, each Democratic member of Congress was assigned a numerical grade from 1 to 7, with the most helpful to Hillary earning 1s and the most treacherous drawing 7s. The set of 7s included Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), as well as Reps. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Baron Hill (D-Ind.) and Rob Andrews (D-N.J.).
Yet even a 7 didn’t seem strong enough to quantify the betrayal of some onetime allies.
2016 Is sure going to be an interesting circus, I mean election.
