Given the horrendous tactics the Clinton campaign used during the Democratic primaries, you would think that they would be humble and apologetic in their behavior. Nope. There have been a flurry of news stories about their hunger for revenge. For instance, take the New York Times 6/11/08.

Mr. McAuliffe, who knows of Mr. Band’s diligent scorekeeping, emphasized that “revenge is not what the Clintons are about.” The accounting is more about being practical, he said, adding, “You have to keep track of this.”

Mr. Band, who declined to comment, is hardly alone in tallying those considered to have crossed the former candidate or the former president in recent months by supporting Mr. Obama. As the Obama bandwagon has swelled, so have the lists of people Clinton loyalists regard as some variation of “ingrate,” “traitor” or “enemy,” according to the associates and campaign officials, who would speak only on condition of anonymity.

Philippe Reines, a spokesman for both Clintons, said neither kept any specific catalog of those believed to have wronged them. “There is no list,” Mr. Reines said.

The lists maintained by supporters tend to be less formal documents than spoken diatribes, with offenders’ names spat forth in rants, gripe sessions and post-mortems.

Several names and entities are common among various list makers. The lineup invariably begins with A-list members like Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico; Representative James E. Clyburn of South Carolina, the House Democratic whip; Gregory B. Craig, Mr. Clinton’s lawyer in his impeachment and trial; David Axelrod, Mr. Obama’s chief strategist; Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri; and several Kennedys. Some members of the Democratic Party’s rules committee, the state of Iowa and the caucus system in general are also near the top.

The news media have already focused on some list entries, including the online gossip purveyor Matt Drudge (who had the nerve to show up at Mrs. Clinton’s departure speech on Saturday), Todd S. Purdum of Vanity Fair (the author of a recent profile of Mr. Clinton) and the cable network MSNBC (whose hosts Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann are charter list members, Clinton associates said).

The lists are also reported to include lesser-known Obama-supporting members of Congress (for whom the Clintons campaigned), former ambassadors (appointed by Mr. Clinton) or Clinton White House officials turned Obama advisers (like Anthony Lake, a former national security adviser, and Susan Rice, a former White House and State Department official).

The Clintonistas don't seem to have any idea how politically vulnerable Ms. Clinton is to a potential primary challenge in 2012. In 2006, Jonathan Tasini, Clinton's anti-war, pro-lgbt, pro-labor primary challenger got 17% with very little money and major corporate media censorship of his campaign.

Ms. Clinton has done a lot of things to alienate a lot of people since then. A primary challenger from the left has a built in 30-35% of the vote at this point. If Obama loses in the fall, most Democrats will blame Hillary Clinton for the defeat, and quite accurately so.

A logical strategy would be for the Clintons and their minions doing everything in their power to rebuild the bridges they have been burning at a feverish pace. They would be accepting of people who chose to support other Democratic candidates, and they would be frantically working to elect Obama.

Hillary Clinton's actions and the behavior of her followers have had the unintended effect of making her political future tied to the success of Obama and the forgiveness of his supporters. I wonder if they see that.

  2. Sorry I have been absent of late..but a new template at Sirens has eaten up all my time.

    As for the Clintons and their thugs..I am sick to death of the games and bullshittery.

    I once held her in high esteem, inspite of not supporting her hubby whilst in the WH. They were dems and largely supported womens causes, expect of course for the Welfare cuts he made. But I digress..

    I now consider both her and Billy to be assholes of the highest order. As for their supporters..fuck em all..they are willing to cut off their nose to spite their dumbass faces. Idiots all.

  6. In an effort to be more like Republicans, the Clinton's have revived the Nixonian idea of an enemies list. And they have to wonder why they lost the primary?
