I thought Huma was the one who went to the mat for Hillary.

Damage control.....Do we really want these creeps back in our White House. In my humble opinion, if you need damage control, get the h out of public office.

She is seen, by a Federal Officer, taking records out of Foster' office and she says she didn't and the whole thing ended. We need more of this in the Whitehouse?

Maggie Williams?

Wasn’t she the one who went into Vince Foster’s office and cleaned it out before the FBI could get in there to investigate?

A desperate attempt to get some of the black-American vote. See, we have a friends who’s black. A Costanza moment. I wonder if they call her “the Exterminator”.

“Hillary wins Hispanic vote with campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle but needs black vote so hires Maggie Williams!”

EXACTLY! How transparent!

From Frank Rich’s column...(one of the few times I’ll ever quote Rich)
“Black America has largely deserted the Clintons. In her California primary victory, Mrs. Clinton drew only 19 percent of the black vote”
“The campaign’s other most potent form of currency remains its thick deck of race cards.”

A Kansas City native, Williams, 53, was a central player in the Clinton damage-control machine during the White House years.

It's really pathetic that the Clinton's needed someone to serve as a "damage-control machine." That's the same kind of administration that Hillary would give us too. Do we really want a President who needs people to run "damage control" for them? That really gives us a walk down memory lane doesn't it? Like any of us could ever forget the Clinton days. LOL

Hillary couldn’t find anybody to take the job. She is in deep deep do-do........Obama is kicking her prodigious butt all over the demographic map.....Unless she can arm twist the superdelegates that are left with the 900 FBI files, she is a goner.........

Clinton Won Easily, but Bankroll Shows the Toll
New York Times, The (NY) - November 21, 2006
Author: ANNE E. KORNBLUT and JEFF ZELENY ; Suevon Lee contributed reporting.

EXCERPT

Since 2001, when she took office, Mrs. Clinton has spent at least $36 million on her re-election. For 2005 and 2006 through Oct. 18, she spent $29.5 million; a final tally will not be available until next month.

At that level, she spent nearly twice as much as Senator Charles E. Schumer, her Democratic colleague from New York, did in his 2004 re-election campaign, when he spent $15.5 million and won 71 percent of the vote, four points more than Mrs. Clinton won this year.

For her money, Mrs. Clinton also won a slightly smaller percentage of the vote in New York this year than did Eliot Spitzer in his successful race for governor. Mr. Spitzer, who raised nearly $41 million for his campaign, won 69 percent of the vote.

Mark Penn, Mrs. Clinton ‘s pollster and longtime adviser, received at least $1.1 million. Mandy Grunwald, her longtime communications strategist, received more than $930,000. Hudson Media Partners, an offshoot of the Glover Park Group consulting firm where two prominent Clinton advisers, Howard Wolfson and Gigi Georges, work, received nearly $200,000.

Campaign aides said much of the consulting work went toward building a donor list that would be vital in a presidential race. But they did not specify the work done by each of the consultants or say exactly how much of the money they received went to preparing for a presidential run rather than Mrs. Clinton ‘s Senate re-election. And the figures have raised eyebrows among the people who raise money for her.

(snip)

A close friend of Mrs. Clinton , Maggie Williams , received a $37,500 consulting fee, paid to her firm, Griffin Williams Critical Point Management, at the end of July.

Asked what the payment was for, Mrs. Clinton ‘s campaign aides checked and subsequently responded that the payment had been a mistake. They said it should have been for less than $5,000 to reimburse Ms. Williams , who served as chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton in the White House, for travel costs. They said Ms. Williams would return the extra money. Ms. Williams , who was said by Mrs. Clinton ‘s aides to be traveling, did not return a call to her office.

I hope you are right on. There is not another political couple that I would like to see gone. They have wasted to much of America’s time with all their bs. Why would anyone want to sign up to view more of their lawsuits, etc,etc, etc!

Wasn't there another woman named 'Williams'...[Ann]? who worked in the Clinton White House?

I've gotten them confused. I could swear there was an Ann Williams...caucasian, school marm type, no nonsense, etc..
