New Hillary Clinton video-Please help me pay off my loans…please? Pretty please?

June 24, 2008

This is rich. Hillary Clinton loaned herself around half of the $20 million she’s in debt when her campaign was broke back in January. She’s got to pay it back before her party’s convention in August or she’ll face some consequences. What do to? Beg while making your supporters think they’re doing something for the good of their country/party/gender. From Cnn.com. Watch Clinton’s money grubbing pleas yourself here.

Hillary Clinton is still on the hunt for campaign cash.

The New York Democrat is well over $20 million in debt, nearly half of which Clinton loaned herself personally earlier in the year when her campaign was virtually broke and faced life-or-death primary contests.

Watch: What went wrong for Clinton?

When it comes to recovering her personal loan, it’s a race against the clock.

Under campaign finance laws spearhead by current presumptive Republican nominee John McCain, Clinton must pay herself back before the party’s convention in late August, or else she is only allowed to receive $250,000.

Earlier: Clinton postpones debt repayment

In an e-mail to supporters earlier Monday afternoon, Clinton says she “has something I want to say,” and directs readers to a Web video in which she says “Today, I still need your help.”

Text next the video reads: “By helping us pay off our campaign debt, you’re not just helping Hillary elect a Democratic president and grow our majority in Congress. You’re making it possible for her to work as hard as she can on the issues we care about.”

Clinton also continued to praise onetime rival Barack Obama, saying she knows the Illinois senator shares the same goals as she.

The Obama campaign is reportedly open to helping Clinton raise money to pay off her lingering campaign debt, though no agreement has been announced yet. Under campaign finance laws, the Obama campaign is not allowed to retire Clinton’s debt directly.

Hillary Clinton apparently lost because she was a victim of sexism

June 14, 2008

It’s so fitting that this can be the only reason she lost. Of course it has nothing to do with her Bosnia flap, or that she seems so mechanical and uncharismatic.

I have a vision of the U.S…..a place where no matter your race or gender that you can run for President, and lose because people just simply didn’t like you or your policies. A nation where people look past your gender and see you for who you really are: a compulsive liar and opportunist that felt entitled to the Office from the time your spouse won in 1992. I feel like we’ve gotten closer……
