Game over: The Clintons stand alone By: Ben Smith January 11, 2010 06:05 PM EST
A new book is out with a highly critical but unsourced portrait of Hillary Clinton. This familiar occurrence its happened too many times to count over the years has usually been greeted with an equally familiar response: A fast and furious counterattack from the Clinton inner circle.
Whats notable about the highly publicized release of Game Change, however, is the virtual silence from the Clinton camp. The lack of public outrage seems to mark the sputtering end of what was once known as the Clinton political machine and underlines a fact that onetime Clinton loyalists acknowledge: The books primary sources about the former candidate and current secretary of state are her own former staffers and intimates.
As a result, there is no campaign of veteran Clintonites spinning the press corps and trying to pre-emptively discredit the books scathing depiction of Hillary Clinton as a rudderless candidate and a cheerleader for vicious tactics against eventual winner Barack Obama. There is no team of Clinton proxies going on cable television to denounce authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann as scurrilous and unworthy of belief.
This time, Bill and Hillary Clinton are virtually alone.
While the low-key response to a brutal portrayal of Clinton in part reflected a decision to keep a prominent face of the Obama administrations foreign policy above the fray, it was also a recognition of reality: The same senior aides who had leaked damaging gossip could hardly be expected to rebut it.
These people have violated the Clinton worlds final taboo: After savaging one another in the press for more than a year, the former aides finally turned on the principals.

Twisting, slowly in the wind...
The books primary sources about the former candidate and current secretary of state are her own former staffers and intimates.
How deliciously fitting...
Yeah, kind of like that final scene in "The Evil that Men do."
An erect Bill Clinton has no conscience.
Thanks, Rich, for the smile on my face.
—Pity. They'll always have that dance on the beach to forever remember....
“A hangin’ on a white oak tree” twisting-what a delicious sight/thought.
It only reveals what honest people have always known: Bill is a whoring a**hole and Hillary is a power hungry bitch and a compulsive liar. This marriage was made in Hell. Aren’t they the poster children for government supported euthansia?
So then, this article says that The Clintons, and particularly Hillary, have finally been exposed for what they are.
Shocker, that. They are what we Freepers have known they were for years.

Tawiskaro....you are a GENIUS!
Your screen page is awesome!!You must be a professional artist!!!
No more ashtrays to throw.
Gee, I wonder if Hillary has time left to run for her old Senate seat.
With any luck at all, it won’t take so many years for this to happen to Barack 0bama.
The article about the book reads like an ad for Obama.
Wonder if we will ever hear the ‘inside’ of Obama’s White House/. . .doubt it. As ruthless as Clinton’s could be; again, even here; Obama out performs them.
The Clinton’s, their hangers-on, the political weasels who surround them are low lifes - the lowest of the low, disgusting people who have done this country great harm.
The Obama crowd is worse.
Next up....Ozero. Somehow, I don't think his demise will take as long.
