Internal Turmoil in Democrat Party


For John, BLUFHaving been derailed in 2008, I think Ms Clinton is in trouble for 2016.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



Here is part of what Law Professor Ann Althouse teased out of a New York Post article, "Obama adviser behind leak of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.", by Reporter Edward Klein.

Part of the story goes to making the point that Ms Valerie Jarrett is the honcho of an effort to derail Ms Hillary Clinton in her renewed bid for the White House.

According to Klein, Obama/Jarrett's real objection to Hillary is that she's not liberal enough to preserve Obama's legacy:
“With Obama’s approval,” this source continued, “Valerie has been holding secret meetings with Martin O’Malley [the former Democratic governor of Maryland] and [Massachusetts Sen.] Elizabeth Warren.  She’s promised O’Malley and Warren the full support of the White House if they will challenge Hillary for the presidential nomination.”
First—Yes, I think the Democrat nominations will be Senator E Warren for President and former Senator Jim Webb for Vice President.

Second—I am sure the word choices should have been Progressive, not Liberal.  A number of us Republicans are reaching out and reclaiming that word as our own.  I blame the editor.

All that said, this is a pretty ugly way to derail Ms Clinton.

And a lot of people are piling on.  When The New York Times unleashes MoDo you know there is a headwind building. Hat tip to Ann Althouse.
