35. I posted exactly this sentiment in 2003 on this site
I said that in connection with the DLC coming out publicly asking Al Gore not to run. I said the DLC was run by the Clintons and that should Al Gore prevail in 2004, Hillary not challenge an incumbent Gore in 2008 running for a second term. I said she was covering her own political flank, and in that process, was throwing Al Gore under the bus. That's the same Al Gore who was, to a large extent, the reason Bill Clinton won the White House in 1992.

So whenever I see posters here ruminating over the same Clinton pattern with regards to defaming an opponent even from her own party, I think of that post. I have searched the archives repeatedly trying to unearth that thread, but the originator was eventually tombstoned. I am not sure when that happens, if even archived threads are removed. I saved a paper copy, however, because I felt sure the same issue would rear its ugly head in 2008, and so it has.

Hillary Clinton is all about Hillary Clinton, and if that means sacrificing other worthy Dems to protect her political interests, oh, well ....

I will not vote for this woman under any circumstances.
