Remember all that money (almost $900,000) that the Clinton campaign was going to return and/or donate to charity because it was tainted by scandal?
Well, Hillary wants it back.
The Clinton campaign will try to get most of the donors to give the money back right after the refunds, said a senior Democratic strategist and one of Clinton’s campaign advisers. “That’s the plan.”
Ms Clinton is running for president on her White House experience in the 1990s, a time when both Clintons were often photographed with people whose money was funny, like Johnny Chung
and Charlie Trie .
Ah, yes, the Clinton Follies. Eight years of demanding dollars for the honor of having your photo taken with the Hill-Billy Clintons (Oh, wait, he's still charging for that), or sleeping in the Lincoln Bedroom.
Did it cost extra to jump up and down on the Lincoln Bed like those twits Markie Post and Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, or was that included in the $150,000 'donation'?
Note to Hillary: Just because your lying, cheating co-president got away with slimey campaign fund tactics (like White House coffees, demanding dollars for photo ops, and selling overnight stays in the Lincoln Bedroom) doesn't mean you will.
Advisers say Hillary is more worried about containing the political damage than furious about the scandal.
Yet she doesn't want to appear to be greedy or ethically challenged.
Not that she isn't, she just doesn't want to appear to be so.
This is the Clintonesque ethic at work.
"The Clintons represent the worst in modern American politics: ruthless ambition over a desire to serve; preoccupation with political funding over a fair system; opportunism over principle; betrayal of any cause or policy over taking a stand; and a desperation to gain and keep office over any obligation to honor its responsibilities." --
