Prominent Hillary Clinton supporters:From Slate, this remark:
... prominent men caught in sex scandals isn't a new one for Hillary. How she handles [the Spitzer story] will tell us something, perhaps, ... about how's she's come to define herself ... as a woman in a world where a few too many of the prominent men around still think it's OK to do this kind of thing.
Now this looks more like random events than any pattern with an underlying cause (or correlation). Even so, it is currently a political issue, and seeing how Hillary Clinton handles it will demonstrate what skills she has in addressing this kind of unexpected surprise.

Clinton: My thoughts are with Spitzer

Posted: 05:29 PM ET

OLD FORGE, Pennsylvania (CNN) — Sen. Hillary Clinton said she had no comment on New York Governor Eliot Spitzer's possible involvement in a prostitution ring.

"I obviously am sending my best wishes and thoughts to the governor and to his family," she told reporters after visiting with reporters in a local pizza parlor.

When asked whether Gov. Spitzer could survive politically she said "let's wait and see what comes out of the next few days. Right now I don't have any comment. I think it's appropriate to wish his family well and see how things develop."
It would appear that Hillary, fairly or not, is going to be connected with this story. Watch for follow-through commentary about Bill being in the White House again.


I never knew the background of Antonio before. What a clown! Good job LA.

So it's fair game to look for Obama supporters who may succomb to booty calls? We can all play "Who's on top - or down?" At least Bill had maintained his amateur standing.

It's already started. Fox news commented that Spitzer was a superdelegate supporting Clinton. What's that make Hillary?

In the tone of the silly fox and friends trio, why, that makes Hillary a pimp.
