Hillary Clinton –Please Exit, with Dignity, June 4

Katrina vanden Heuvel
Editor, The Nation

Check out CNN.com for Bill Clinton's vent about how a "cover up " is hurting Hillary Clinton's chances of becoming the Democratic nominee. This is a man who has trampled on his spouse's voice every time, in this campaign, that she's found it.

The women of The Nation are the first to deplore the sexism in media commentary this primary season, but a "cover up"?

Hillary Clinton started this race last year as the one to beat–she had the money, the machine and the name recognition that assured her of quasi-incumbent status. And, indeed, she ran as a quasi-incumbent, an establishment candidate in a change- year election. Yes, there were the Chris Matthews and the Tucker Carlsons and the Mike Barnicles and the Rush Limbaughs and the women who were working out their Clinton hatred through Hillary's candidacy.

    It will never be known what the true results from those contests would have been or if Hillary was can truly be considered the winner of both states, as she was the only one on the ballot in Michigan and neither party even went to Florida to campaign for votes. If you count the popular vote for Hillary, in Michigan, then how do they determine what the true fair popular vote would have been for Obama? Also, in Florida, what is the true popular to popular vote? Clinton wants those popular votes to be tallied on her score without considering the unfairness that it provides to Obama. Hillary's way is actually unfair to Obama if you actually review her whole arguement. Unless you have primaries for both states, fair ones, then the only way to have the delegates seated is to split the delegates 50/50 and forget the popular votes as they are not accurate.

    Barack Obama is not the Antichrist......you cannot believe everything you google. Study some eschatology and then make comments about the antichrist

    Sorry Katrina

    I hope Clinton takes it to the convention and if she doesn't get elected, I hope she runs as an independant or starts a third party.

    I am tired of seeing her treated so shabily. Oh there's some pretty shabby stuff going on to the other two candidates too, but I've just gotten sick of the whole thing, and think she would make a great president.

    She has some great ideas and actions to enact them. Obama is just smoke and mirrors as far as I'm concerned.

    Her RFK comment spoke volumes. This is something she said on more than one occasion and would have said again if there hadn't been such a strong reaction this time. I do think that media coverage has been unfair to her at times. But she doesn't seem to have a conscience. I don't think she is fit to be president.

    Clinton financial contributors should ask for an audit as to where the monies went!?
    You see Clinton has 'spent' roughly the same amount as Obama.
    If you take the reported figures 'raised' add the debt Clinton has and subtract the savings Obama has it comes comes close to equal.
    This raises suspicions as to how Obama was 'outspending' her 4 to 1 in campaigning?
    The auditors should look for 'spending' that went into 'charities' 'libraries' 'shells'.
    How else can you explain that with both camps having the same amount of funds, one was outspending the other in campaigning by 4 to 1? Where was the other monies 'spent'?
    Oh, there is one other logical explanation. The being outspent claim was a big fat lie!

    It is so tiring to listen to Hillary now. I still wonder why she is in the race after everybody else has moved on. Of course it is her right to stay in the race but what is she trying to achieve by doing so. She will not win the nomination legally. She's was overly confident that she would win just because of the name recognition and all the money she had, but she still ran her campaign in an old school fashion. Obama’s campaign was genius in that he pulled together people in his campaign with new ideas and visions. I don’t know of any presidential candidate that managed the vast numbers of helpers and volunteers through the use of social networking. And taking small donation from millions of people instead of large donations through smaller numbers of people proved to work in his favor. Also the new faces that came out to vote, myself included, will make this year a year to remember.

    It was wrong for her to bring up the assassination of Kennedy. What was her motive for doing so and how exactly did it relate in a positive way as to why she should stay? Listening to Bill was really annoying. He sounded like he was pouting because they are not getting their way. If I was near him I would pat him on the head and give him a cookie and say there there, don't cry little one. But in reality I would have yelled at him and called him on his false accusations and to tell him Hillary did it to herself. Obama could have rubbed her nose in the mud with this Kennedy thing but instead he decided to let it pass. This isn’t the first time he let something that he could have capitalized on pass either. He did the same thing in one of the previous debates too. He also didn’t dwell on the Bosnia issue. Hillary on the other hand took every possible moment. She milked the reverend Write issue for weeks. And then to call him an elitist wasn’t sound at all.

    Hillary also made the mistake on only focusing on a few big states instead of including the smaller states, which were just as important. This allowed Obama to take twice as many states and in so doing take the lead. He outplayed her on every front with only one theme where as on several occasions… to many to count, she has changed her message to either cater to the crowd she was appealing to or when she realized her message wasn’t working. I found it funny to hear during her speech in Puerto Rico the crowd chanted Obama’s slogan and she had to correct them. I also found it disturbing that she would pander to the crowd by telling them she wants to have another debate about Puerto Rico with Obama over them. How does this make since?? With only two more primaries left after Saturday. This brought back memories of the gas tax. In both instances she catered to the demographics. For the gas tax the people were poorer and any kind of relief would be welcomed. And in Puerto Rico the debate with Obama would show them that she was doing something. In both cases neither of those things would have happened and she knows it. But if it will help her get votes then that’s all that matters. And that goes along the lines of the MI and FL seating. I don’t see how she could have the popular vote when Obama’s name wasn’t on the ballet in MI and she didn’t campaign in FL except for on ad. In Florida the demographics favored Hillary so of course she would have won by give margins if he doesn’t campaign there. But can you honestly tell me that she would still get 100% of the votes in MI if Obama’s name was on the ballet and he campaigned and however many votes in FL if Obama did the same? I THINK NOT….

    In the end I don’t believe Hillary will be a stronger candidate. Yes she is a fighter and strives to get what she wants. But at the same time I see her trying so hard to get what she wants that she won’t let anything get in her way regardless of whether it was the right decision in the first play. She says she has 35 years of experience, but even with all the experience she has, she still made the wrong choice with the war, wrong choices with her campaign, wrong choice of words with foreign policies, namely Iran and wrong decisions with economic values, namely the gas tax. I also question how she will be able to manage the economy. Seeing how she is 20 plus million in debt and had to “loan” herself money, this is a big concern when it comes to managing the economy. I don’t believe it will be in Obama’s best interest to have her as Vice President. Hillary and Bill duo will be hard to work with and I can see as re election draws near she will try to make it difficult for him to run again. Hillary’s baggage would bring Obama down if he was to take her on as VP. And the notion that he owes her the VP spot is absurd. They were both competing for the same position and she lost. He owes her nothing, the VP spot or helping with getting rid of her debt. Other candidates were smart enough to withdraw from the race when they neared going into debt. She also had this choice and she decided not to. Of course she has every right to stay in the race but at the same time she should expect to deal with the consequences just like everybody else. Obama should continue to focus on McCain and give Hillary her space to do whatever. Even though McCain is doing a fine job running his campaign into the ground, there is always room for Obama to lend a helping hand.

    The anger that is being generated by the Hillary supporters, the devisiveness of Hillary herself is still a concern. It is as if everyone feels more comfortable hating the other 50% or so of the population. Is this what we really want? I see more anger in the Obama supporters also it just seems that no one likes anyone very much.

    Senator Clinton's camp, including President Clinton, prefer pointing fingers to others, instead of facing the ugly internal reality. The BIGGEST failure of senator Clinton's campaign is due to internal weakness than externally exerted problems. Obama's campaign far out smarted Clinton's camp. They had a far better strategy than Clinton's group. And Senator Clinton is NO exception. All those who tried before her with a weaker campaign strategy failed to win the nomination. It's high time the Clinton camp stop pointing fingers and reflect on their own internal weaknesses. What went wrong is more internal than external by any account.

    Why should Hillary leave. She's winning states. She's winning votes. It's clear that it's going to come down to superdelegates so she might aswell go the distance. The Democraitc Party voting system is broken and we are witnessing happen after all these years. McCain '08.

    After invoking the death of Robert Kennedy on Friday as a reason to stay in the race, she has no dignity left. Even while saying these word you noticed that she had a long pause. I think even she knew that that word should not have been brought up. Rather than take it back then and there,she thought incorrectly that the media and everyone else would give her a pass. Even her pseudo apology was a joke, to appease those members of the Kennedy clan who are supporting her. Never mind an apology to the Obama family, who will probably have additional secret service protection in the even tone of new uneducated spporters view this an a winning strategy for Hillary. Given the emotion this primary has stirred up she should have known better, one mis-speak too many for this democrat.

    To GAIL Centre,Al: What exactly about about this articulate, honest, non-fear mongering candidate scares you. Sorry his life a not up to your tabloid fodder standards. If you are so interested in Mr. Obama suggest you go to your local library and check out and reaBut I guess it the skin color taht scares you.

    This is why Hillary lost the primary:
    Hillary Lied about Sniper fire and claimed she "misspoke"
    She will not admit she made a mistake voting for the war in Iraq and claims it was not a bill for war
    She lied about Canada's Nafta
    She lied about Colombia Free Trade Agreement
    She worked at Walmart and shipped jobs to China
    She and Bill had sessions with Reverent Wright after Bill's affair with Monica and invited Rev Wright for dinner.
    Hillary lied about pregnant women during campaign
    Hillary endorsed McCain instead of a democrat
    Hillary swears like a maniac yet can go on the podium and talk about what a great mother she was.
    She will destroy the party so that she can run again in 4 years.
    Both she and Bill did not fully support Kerry 4 years ago so that Hillary can run now.
    She signed not to allow MI and FL delegates when she was leading and now that she is behind she is wants them to count
    She is in debt 20 million and have not paid vendors in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and NC.
    She cannot manage her tiny little campaign and finances yet claims to be ready to run the biggest superpower on day one.
    Hillary's experience amounts to Barbara Bush's experience in the White House.
    Hillary tried and botched healthcare reform by taking money from healthcare companies.
    Hillary claims to know everything about economy and too prideful to listen to economist. (hint: look at her campaign finances)
    Bill Clinton injected race into the campaign in SC and blamed Obama for race issue.
    Hillary injection race (again!) after NC by segregating white and black with her comment on "white hardworking people"
    HIllary injection gender by claiming that the country needs a women.
    Hillary invoked the assasination of JFK 3 times as a reason to stay in the race

    She should have left on March 4th! What a mockery she has made of the primaries. Joe Biden has more clout than this sad woman. She's not a fighter, she's a disgrace. Anyone can see the dystopia of her campaign. What a shame.

    I don't understand why people are trying to push her out of the race. An interesting way to look at the race between Clinton and Obama is via the electoral college map: if you include Montana and South Dakota for him, she is still beating him by 308 to 230 electoral college votes. I am glad he does well in states like Iowa, Wisconsin, and Colorado, but as a democrat in an election I would much rather have claim to Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida. I think it is pretty clear she is the strongest candidate, and while I like Obama I think it is rather clear who we need on the top of the ticket to have the best chance of winning in November.

    katrina- first of all i want to say you are a phenomenal writer i've read your work in the past and have so enjoyed it. i couldn't agree with you more; this woman (hillary clinton) came into the race as a powerhouse and she blew it! she could have renewed the womens movement of the sixties by a speech about the power of women in america, the strength of women in america, the spirit of women in america. i believe in barack obama becuase he has uplifted people to believe not only in him but to believe in themselves; to believe that anything is possible if we come together as whites, blacks, hispanics, asians, muslims, christians, jews, buddists... many of us have prayed for the world to become a better place for our children to grow up in and i believe the universe has given its answer – BARACK OBOMA!!

    How would you define what the advocacy group, Color for Change, is doing with their campaign directed towards DNC Chair Howard Dean, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and the superdelegates? They have done a similar campaign to the Congressional Black Caucus, demanding those superdelegates follow the will of the voters in their constituency. Of course there is a reason for this to be kept out of the main stream media, hency the term "cover up".

    Hillary's had to fight tooth and nail from the very start. why is everyone turning on her. Obama scares me , we don't know anything about him. 18 months in the senate before running for president and know nothing about any accomplishments. What has he accomplished. He's a smooth talker people need to wake up and think about what's good for the country. Obama would be a disaster.

    Although I don't agree with all of Ms. Clinton's policies, I do respect her fire, drive and determination to compete for something she cherishes; she is showing a lot more fire than the other candidates; this will be even more evident once she exits center stage; Hillary is a bit of a throw back; she fights for what she wants and doesn't really care what others think; I admire her for this; the other candidates are a direct reflection of what leadership today is all about; very little fire, very little accomplishment, a feeling of entitlement and getting to the top through money, connections and hot air; Obama writes memoires before doing anything of note; McCain uses his wife's money to gain access; both have quetionable associates and both follow the leads of domineering women; with Hillary gone, their will be only two strong women left to direct their flawed husbands.

    All indications point to the possibility of a second "Joe Lieberman" here. Joe was the VP selection for Al Gore and his loyalty to President Clinton was noted in the 2000 Election. Joe ran for re-election and he failed to consider the Party and took the money and his celebrity and defeated the Party. What makes anyone think that this isn't a viable strategy for the Clintons to attempt? They have a pot of gold collected for the General Election that they can't touch if they don't win the nomination. They are playing the victim card to generate sympathy and to create a backlash in women and whites giving them a base of support. This will be the largest test of Clinton integrity in their life. I think they have already failed that test once. History is the best predictor of the future. They have nothing to lose.

  37. Gary Chandler in Canada

    The big question – why hasn't she been able to close the deal?
    To save all that 'bus' money on the Protest, why doesn't somebody do the math!?
    FLA and MI were not landslide States for Clinton. Obama's lead is so big from the other 48 States that even a 'low ball' allocation to Obama in FLA and MI still gives him the overall popular vote lead and an insurmountable pledged delegate lead, even with the new goal post.
    The only way the Clinton camp can 'claim' a PV victory is by sticking to the 55% she got in MI, with his 0%. (She was on the ballot against 'Uncommitted'! for cheese sake.) By giving Obama an improbable, measly 10% in MI he clinches the PV victory.
    That is with seating FLA 'as is'. 49.8 % Clinton 33% Obama, though it could be argued out of the other 17% mots would be for Obama. (You can bet if Edwards had supported Clinton, Wolfson would have already added ALL of Edward's votes.)
    The DNC must be very careful not to disenfranchise the 48 States that stood in line, in favor of the party crashers. Also, the educated, rule following Obama supporters in both States, as evidenced by many Posts on BLOGS, will have to see some penalty if they are to trust the democratic process.
    Because the Fla and MI results don't change the Obama nomination, (forgetting about a 55 to 0 scenario in MI!), the question should be how a United democratic should handle this.
    If the Obama and Clinton camps got together to put the best face it, they would come up with this. Obama could 'accept' the FLA results 'as is' and 'accept' a 55 35 in MI. That would appease the Clinton supporters and the 'educated' Obama supporters would see it's okay. THEN, in order to appease the law abiding 48 States, they cut that result in 1/2, restoring the Democratic process!
    Get this – Clinton calls for Protest Rally. Obama supporters 'React'. Wolfson claims they 'Inflame'.
    Rally turn out? HRC 350 BHO 8500! Claims a conspiracy that Elitist bus lines owners held back transportation.

    Senator Clinton should never give up, should never surrender... She represents 50.000.000 millions votes in our country.
    I am so sick with all the media telling her that she should quit.

    Well, I am sorry Mr. Obama and all the media..she is not a quiter. Senator Clinton got not only my vote but the vote of millions of the Latino vote and I am part of it... show some respect to an excellent candidate and her spouse President Clinton who has a record that few Presidents have in the history of this county.

    I think Hillary isone of the most admired women in a America.

    No one has fought harder for the American people and this country,

    and yes the media was so bias against her, especially Jack

    Cafferty. It's really a shame that every mistake Omama made hos

    supporters and campaign blamed on her. She has millions of

    supporters that will always stand behind her.

    Well you know what, the only reason Hillary has to defend herself is because this is still a "MANS" world and all these people have been disenlusined to the fact that Hillary is a decent, good hearted human being & a honest public servent. All of you MEN out there have made her look so bad and that is why she is in the prediciment she is in. Now we have to contend AGAIN with another MAN in the white house. Yes I love this country, but I don't believe that having a MAN in office again is going to do any good. Inevitably he will become the same ole, same ole, politician that we see in the office now. If Obama does well as president, the only reason will be is because MICHELLE will be in charge.....YES, again another WOMAN behind the scene.....how sad.

    My heart is with you Hillary.

    Obama and Cnn have not treated Hillary Clinton with dignity through this whole campaign so far, yet now they want her too do everything she can too get her supporters too accept Obama.
    Obama doesn't care about voters only their votes.
    He may be popular, but it will take a lot more than that too be president.

    The longer the battle between Hillary and Barrak goes on, the more Dems register to vote. They are generating interest at a level rarely seen these days. These same people are probably going to vote in November. Repubs are not generating interest and not getting people signed up to vote. Watching the Dems duke it out, the Repubs are gloating and think they are gaining, but come November, the Repubs are going to get spanked because they simply will not have the turn out that Hillary and Barrak have generated.

    Not that I expect anyone at CNN (except Lou Dobbs) to be capable of providing a balanced, unbiased, and fairly objective analysis of Hillary's presidential bid, but clearly this "journalist" is heavily in favor of Obama. Most news media personnel are nowadays, even though there has been no real concrete evidence of what Obama can or will do if he ever gets in office. So much of the media, and certainly his own campaign, has crowned him the nominee, even though he has no hope of obtaining the share of delegates needed to clinch the nomination. The SD's don't count until August, remember. He will be not be able to clinch the nomination until August as the SD's will need to vote at that time as to who to support as the nominee.

    Despite all of the irrational and certainly unwarranted Hillary-hate out there, she is the only one who can win the GE. If the DNC insists on giving the nomination to Obama, which clearly is not in our best interest given his frightening associations with other people, they are not only giving in to the thug mentality that has threatened to riot if their man isn't the nominee, but also sets up the democrats for a certain loss in November.

    Obama's inexperience and Chicago style politics have set back any black candidate, who would otherwise likely be a great candidate, from being taken seriously as a presidential candidate for the next 50 years. Axlerod is Obama's mouthpiece, which makes him complicit in all of Obama's past and present problems. He's part of it.

    I for one would be dumbfounded to see her at this point do anything that resembled grace or dignity. To do so would be to admit defeat something she hasn't shown once. Show me one time that she has taken the high road during the campaign. I picture her being dragged out kicking and screaming 'but we haven't seated Mars!'

    As a woman I am offended by the comments that Bill Clinton
    made on last night's 360. Was not one of her rallying cries was
    how she could withstand anything thrown at her by Republicans.
    The HRC attack machines has been around for years, yet we
    are supposed to believe the Clintons are stunned because the
    media does not want a female president. Sexism is real but
    I think the Clintons are clueless as to why HRC lost her presidential

    I am so tired of listening to Hill & Bill whine. Why don't she admit that she underestimated Barack Obama being a viable candiate. I'm tired of hearing about sexism with her what about racism with Obama. I used to have alot of respect for the Clintons. They are lower than the scump of the earth with the tatics they have pulled. When they paid Jeremiah Wright to speak out that didn't work. When he misspoke about the guns and bitter that didn't work. I feel the media have given Hillary a free pass. When she spoke about she would leave the church if her minister was like Jeremiah Wright. She should have left her husband for all the affairs that he has had since they have been married. It is time to call it quits. She ran an excellent race but she is losing. It is time for her to pull the party together. She is doing more damage to herself than the party. She is making alot of people have no respect for her dirty low down antics. Her and Bill are a match made in heaven.

    Oh...I hope that Hillary takes this thing all the way to the convention. She has every right to and no one has the right to tell her to leave the race. Obama can not get the full amount of delegates needed to seal the deal so why should she hand this race to him on a silver platter!? You never know what will go down at the convention.

    The pundits and media need to mind their own business and stop trying to tell Hillary what to do!!

    You need to understand Hillary Clinton. To do so you need to understand the book by Saul Alinsky's 1971 book, "Rules for Radicals: A Practical Primer for Realistic Radicals." Read the book and understand the candidate.

    Alinsky was an early hero of Hillary, she wrote her thesis on him – And that thesis is being suppressed by the Clintons. Ask yourself why?
