As some former Clinton supporters continue to press on with the idea that Hillary Clinton should be our nominee, the HuffPo reports today Hillary Clinton has distanced herself from at least one prominent “Anti-Obama Hillraiser,” Ricki Lieberman.
Lieberman is keeping her own private hope alive with a daily email blast to supporters, entitled “Electability Watch,” which features a cascade of negative articles and other items about Obama as a means to argue that superdelegates should change their minds in Denver and crown Clinton the nominee instead.
Lieberman’s “Electability Watch” emails about Barack Obama have been described as “disgusting” by a “tipster” who forwarded a batch of them to the HuffPo.
Seth Colter, reports on the HuffPo:
A spokesperson for Sen. Clinton implicitly distanced the candidate from Lieberman’s effort, telling the Huffington Post: “Senator Clinton fully supports Senator Obama. She continues to urge all of her supporters to get behind him. … She continues to do everything she can to rally folks behind him. We don’t support any effort that doesn’t.”
Personally, I don’t understand how Lieberman and other former Clinton supporters who continue to push mis-information about Barack Obama under the auspices of the “PUMA” movement, think they are helping Clinton.
I’m glad to see that Hillary Clinton is distancing herself from these “supporters.” She made it clear she had stepped out the race and was supporting Barack Obama as our nominee.
