They’re baaaack . . .


It might be the former candidate or her supporters, but expect a brief resurgence in Clinton opportunism.  Some people can’t let go.


Just last week, Maureen Dowd quoted one such committed Hillary backer who made it her personal mission to rain on Barack and Hillary’s “Unity” rally in New Hampshire.


via The New York Times:


. . . Carmella got her idol to autograph her sign, telling the smiling Hillary, “You’re going to be the next president.”

She told The Times that she and her friends were all voting for John McCain and that Hillary was just doing what she had to do.

“But I have a gut feeling,” she said with macabre faith, “that something’s going to happen so that she becomes the nominee.”

Hey, why shouldn’t she be so optimistic?  After all, remember it was the Clinton campaign that created the ominous, “Anything can happen (wink, wink)” justification to prolong the Democratic Primary.

Make no mistake about it, some Clinton supporters still dream of a political coup at the the Denver convention.  And, with recent controversy over FISA Immunity, some see blood in the water.

I turn your attention to Huffington Post contributor, Kristen Breitweiser:

Reminder to all:The Superdelegates have not yet voted. They cast their vote at the Convention in August which means Hillary Clinton’s “suspended” campaign could be reinstated. (Because, Oh, Yes She Can!)

Of course, this reality is probably why the Republicans have remained mostly silent against Obama since they’d rather run against Obama than Hillary. The Republicans know that a small window remains open for Hillary to get the nomination. And a coup at the Convention is not entirely out of the question– particularly in light of Obama’s recent behavior in thumbing his nose at the Progressive base. Yes folks, it’s not too late.

It’s July 9, 2008. There are 6 weeks left until the convention in Denver. And I think all Americans should be paying close attention to see what Barack Obama does. Does he continue to flounder and move to the center compromising important Progressive principles? Or does he correct his wayward ways?

Democrats must have a candidate with clear conviction to beat John McCain in November. The question that must be answered between now and August is whether Barack Obama is that candidate.

So . . . I guess we’re supposed to believe that Hillary Clinton is the new Dennis Kucinich???

Of course, Ms. Breitweiser’s dream scenario is political suicide.  Such Convention chaos would almost certainly hand-deliver the presidency to John McCain.  Sounds odd, but it fits perfectly with the Hillary in 2012 rallying cry that some of her supporters still have.

Don’t be surprised if you see more of this.  Senator Clinton is going to get good press from her FISA vote.  And some of her supporters might just try to exploit that good will to resurrect her campaign.

I’m just sayin’ . . .

Beware of Clinton opportunists!  They’re John McCain’s secret weapon.
