Clinton Campaign continues to Implode

Bill Shaheen has resigned (probably fired) as the campaign co-chair from the Clinton campaign for his comments about drugs and Obama (Lord knows, the Clinton campaign should be weary of delving into the ethical qualifications of the DEM candidates for fear of it turning around on her.) With the disaster that has hit the Clinton campaign in recent months with one misstep after another, this was inevitable but seems ill advised considering how close it is to the Iowa caucus. We all know that the Clinton campaign is too arrogant to look inward at Clinton herself and see what needs to change in order to do better, so Mr. Shaheen looks to be a sacrificial lamb here. At least he got to give a statement (probably written by someone else no doubt) that he is resigning and Hillary is still the best candidate. Yeah that’s what I want an endorsement from someone I fired for running a terrible campaign and helped lose a huge lead to a lackluster DEM candidate pool. I really hope Hillary looses in first three contests so we can really see her really go ballistic and fire everyone and run the whole thing herself….she can always blame her lose on Bill in the end so her ego should remain intact when she crashes and burns.

"Statement from Bill Shaheen:
A STATEMENT FROM BILL SHAHEENShaheen announces
decision to step down as Clinton campaign Co-Chair“I would like to reiterate
that I deeply regret my comments yesterday and say again that they were in no
way authorized by Senator Clinton or the Clinton campaign. Senator Clinton has
been running a positive campaign focused on the issues that matter to America’s
families. She is the best qualified to be the next President of the United
States because she can lead starting on day one. I made a mistake and in light
of what happened, I have made the personal decision that I will step down as the
Co-Chair of the Hillary for President campaign. This election is too important
and we must all get back to electing the best qualified candidate who has the
record of making change happen in this country. That candidate is Hillary
Clinton.”
