  - They have made no statement at all, right? So they're guilty?  MethuenProgressive   Feb-25-08 10:47 AM   #62 
  - No, they have made a statement. It did not include a denial. Jesus, try following the story.  Occam Bandage   Feb-25-08 10:48 AM   #64 
  - I repeat. What is it they didn't deny? The content of the Drudge Report story?  Tom Rinaldo   Feb-25-08 10:49 AM   #67 
  - Then they should sue Matt Drudge for saying they did, right?  thecatburgler   Feb-25-08 10:47 AM   #61 
  - Did he say they "did"? Did you see what he wrote?  MethuenProgressive   Feb-25-08 10:48 AM   #63

  - Hillary Clinton woos man (Drudge) who nearly ruined her husband  ProSense   Feb-25-08 10:51 AM   #74

     - I know I've seen it before. Most likely right here on DU.  MethuenProgressive   Feb-25-08 10:59 AM   #87 
        - So, Drudge 'heard gossip' that a staffer had sent a photo to a staffer, and googled up this pic?  MethuenProgressive   Feb-25-08 11:02 AM   #91 
  - DRUDGE DEBUNKED - photo was in 2/4/08 National Enquirer, not secretly held by Clinton Camp  MethuenProgressive   Feb-25-08 11:09 AM   #95
