Clinton Aides buy 2012 Website
Clinton Aides buy 2012 Website

A company associated with Hillary Clinton's top presidential campaign advance staff has purchased a website domain that hints of a 2012 presidential bid for the vanquished senator from New York.

HRC2012.com was bought by the Markham Group on June 8, according to whois.com

Greg Hale of the Markham Group served as a key advance aide to Sen. Clinton, organizing political events for the campaign. The Markham website calls him the "lead consultant for advance and visual messaging." Partners Paul Neaville and Robert McClarty (the son of former White House chief of staff Thomas "Mack" McClarty) also worked on Clinton's advance team. According to whois.com, the site was registered by Todd Wilder, a longtime Democratic operative from Florida.

A picture of Clinton pops up when the company's website is called up.

Mo Elleithee, a Clinton spokesman, said that Clinton officially associates herself with three websites: hillpac.com, for her political action committee, hillaryclinton.com, for her presidential campaign and now her '12 Senate re-election campaign, and a separate site dedicated to retiring her presidential debt.

In 2006, HillaryClinton.com was used as the principle Senate re-election site, so it's not clear why a separate 2012 site would be required.

If Obama loses in November, Clinton would have to pick between running for re-election and running for president.

Clinton advisers say that she is committed to helping elect Obama and, at the same time, wants to keep her options open. But Elleithee said he knew nothing about the HRC2012.com site.

4. She's running for Senate in 2012, and probably doesn't want
some nutjob PUMA type to get it.

6. I can see two reasons for it
The first is for her senatorial campaign in 2012.

The second is that it keeps the domain out of the hands of the PUMA crowd.

10. Seems to be bullshit for now.

This page is parked free, courtesy of GoDaddy.com.

Maybe they meant that Clinton might be buying this domain sometime in the future. Or not.

11. You have to pre-emptively or someone else will do so and publish crap on it in your name.
Standard practice.

Look at the few loonies out there claiming to be Clinton supporters. You don't want any of them grabbing the domain.

14. She's running for re-election to the SENATE
in 2012. Those who wish to attach the most nefarious motives to something that is explained so simply says way more about them than about Hillary. I wish people would just grow the fuck up already.

16. IMO, this isn't bashing. It's a legitimate concern that she has her sights on 2012.
Given her history and that of her husband.

Sadly, when it comes to the Democratic party and Democrats, every one constructive act by the Clintons has been counter-balanced by something not helpful.

Doing my best not to be inflammatory.

Facts are facts.

17. Except this isn't a fact...
It is purely speculation, based on Hillary Hate.

24. Amen too. Dean also voiced the opinion that the republicans
are probably behind the PUMA group that some here use as an excuse to bash Clinton. Apparently the urge to bash a democrat supersedes the damage done by helping the republicans divide us.

25. I know ...
This is such tired fucking shit. And from the same people.

And people say Hillary supporters need to "move on" and "get over it".

Fuck this shit.
