The Dem Convention is a Target Rich Environment For Reporters Looking for a Story about Disgruntled Clintonians.
[Posted by WLS]
You’ve got to love this kind of stuff — from Mark Halperin’s blog over at Time:
The following is a joint statement from Maggie Williams, Senior Advisor to Senator Clinton and David Axelrod, Senior Strategist to Senator Obama in response to the false story that appeared last night online on politico.com.
“We understand that some in the news media are more interested in reporting the rumor of controversy than the fact of unity. The fact is that our teams are working closely to ensure a successful convention and will continue to do so. Senator and President Clinton fully support the Obama/Biden ticket and look forward to addressing the convention and the nation on the urgency of victory this Fall. Anyone saying anything else doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Period.”
Didn’t Howard Wolfson work for Clinton’s campaign as the Chief Spokesman? Apparently, based on his own writing over at the new republic, he didn’t get the memo:
There is still work to do on the Bill Clinton front. He feels like the Obama campaign ran against and systematically dismissed his administration’s accomplishments. And he feels like he was painted as a racist during the primary process.
I’m running out of popcorn already and the convention hasn’t even started. I’ll have to make a quick run to Costco to buy one of those 36-pack boxes of Orville Redenbacher.
