Shalala walks into anti-Castro buzz saw: How a campaign event with Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Lee [tr]
Poltico ^ | October 18, 2018 | Marc Caputo

There’s a simple rule in running for Congress in Miami: Don’t campaign with someone who praised Fidel Castro and fought sanctions against Venezuela’s dictatorial regime.

But Donna Shalala didn’t figure it out until it was too late.

In a district filled with Castro-hating Cuban-Americans and Venezuelan exiles, Shalala’s campaign committed an egregious gaffe — and set off a round of Democratic finger-pointing — by posting an announcement that she would hold a campaign event Wednesday with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Californian, Rep. Barbara Lee.

Hoping Salazar can knock off the prehistoric Clinton hack, Shalala.

I want to see such a huge democrat defeat on November 6th that it will take them more than a century to recover, if ever. The Democratic party needs to be annihilated.

Just remember. Liberals are the smartest people on the planet. Don’t take my word for this. Just ask ANY Liberal. They will be more than ready, willing and able to tell you just how brilliant they are. Trust me on this.

In one of the earlier threads about Shalala running, somebody said she was basically "coming to the aid of her party", rather than wanting the "job".

She should have been put out to pasture when she made the comment, on an April 15, along with her fellow height-challenged Clintonian Cabinet mate, Robert Reich, that taxes are too low and should be raised.

I had no idea that Shallow was still alive until recently. She has to be 90!

Shalala looks like she’s been beaten with a shillelagh. I hope her upcoming loss in this race puts an end to her political career once and for all. Although I’m still puzzled why she would leave her comfy post at the U of Miami to get in the rough-and-tumble of a congressional campaign.

Clinton deliberately picked a cabinet of losers and nobodies. That way no one could outshine him or Hellary. To wit, Reno, Shalala, and Robert Reich as three examples.
