Another Hillary Defection

Remember Greg Craig, the White House attorney who defended Bill Clinton in his impeachment trial? According to Robert Novak, Mr. Craig is supporting Barack Obama for president:

Greg Craig, a Washington super-lawyer with close ties to the Clintons, is supporting Sen. Barack Obama for President.

Craig was a White House special counsel defending President Bill Clinton in the Senate impeachment trial. A partner in the Williams & Connolly law firm founded by the legendary Edward Bennett Williams, Craig served as an adviser to Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy.

In confirming to this column his Presidential preference, Craig called Obama unique and added: "I've never seen anyone who has made the impact on people and on me." He said he was impressed with Obama when he first met him at the home of investment banker Vernon Jordan, an intimate friend and supporter of the Clintons.

First David Geffen and now Greg Craig. It looks like more and more people are starting to move away from the Clintons, who had for a long time been off limits for criticism by other Democrats.

This news comes on the heels of an MSNBC report that states the Clintons pressured the administration at Wellesly to suppress Hillary's senior thesis from the public while they were in the White House. I'm with Captain Ed on this this one. It's not the content of the thesis that's of concern, as Hillary was just a college student when she wrote it, but that they used such strong armed tactics to keep it hidden from the public:

However, the thesis isn't really the story. What's news is the Clinton effort to hide the thesis, proving once again that the coverup is worse than the crime. The Clintons had no problem extorting Wellesley into hiding Hillary's thesis, which makes one wonder what else the Clintons managed to bury during their two terms in the White House.

Hillary apologists have at times tried to distance themselves from the actions of Bill during the 1990s. This shows that the abuses of the Clinton years weren't limited to the man from Hope.

The only thing that would surprise me about the Clintons is if they actually got arrested and did time in prison, where they belong. I told my hubby the other day "I hope I live long enough to see the Clintons do the perp walk in their orange jumpsuits.

This run for president by Hillary is the best thing to happen in a long time. The MSM is for Obama, so they will drag out all the scandals they use to barely mention, because they were Clinton supporters at the time. Now we get a trip down memory lane about what the Clintons are really like - and the MSM agrees with the GOP this time around!

Plus, the "revisit" of the scandals will ruin Clintons legacy for good.

P.S. I'm still surprised Babs Striesand is supporting Obama. She never liked Hillary, but she and Bill were tight as ticks.

Ole Billy boy must be really surprised at the celebs who have abandoned him. Because this is definitely a slam to him too.

100K exactly and not inhaling tell you all you need to know about that pair. Nonetheless, Bill was an extremely likable guy and very able politician. Hillary is neither.

Tsh Tsh Hillary and Bill for being so untransparent...By the way, I wonder what George W. Bush's thesis was at Yale? I guess we will never know since Yale, and Phillips Academy for that matter, were ordered by Bush to suppress all aspects of his academic record.

Undergraduates write a thesis?

You mean those academic records that show Bush did better than Kerry? lol.

I wonder if the other "Craig" will be supporting Obama. The infamous ex bouncer Craig Livingstone. The keeper of the FBI files.

Suppress the records? Gee, anything like the National Guard records? Christ, get over it. All Presidents have suppressed records, and all will.

Hey Allen, got a reputable source for that "National Guard records" suppression story?

As I recall W went out of his way to provide as much access to them as possible unlike Kerry who never signed his 180 form that would have shown the nation what he actually did while in the service.

Dan Rather took it a step further and invented a version of W's NG records no one had ever seen before in a vain effort to subvert an election.
Thank god for Buckwheat and LGF and the people that proved that type font wasn't available back then.

We can dance on this one all day long and I'll beat you with facts every time.

The Clintons were the most corrupt couple to ever occupy the White House from Whitewater to their final momments when Bill and Hill issued pardons for their pals that proffited them and their relatives showing without a doubt they were the absolute masters at suppressing records from Hillery's Castle Grande files that mysteriously showed up to the Bimbo Eruption patrol used to slander any of Bill's 'girlfriends' who tried to come out with their stories.

And better than Al Gore (the smartest man in the universe) BTW

"I wonder if the other 'Craig' will be supporting Obama?"

Isn't Craig still in prison? Quite a few people went to prison to protect the Clintons. One who didn't ended up in Fort Macy Park.

Ye shall reap what Ye sows. Now it will start to come back to Bull and Hill unless they bump a few more people outta the way. The mud slinging in the Dems contest has just begun. Wait till it really hits the fan in another couple of months. I am going to sit back and watch who will try to out due the other with the mud. It will be one of the dirtist elections on record and the most costliest. Wach the money and see where it flows.

Rob LA Ca.:

The best part about it Jim is that they are so preoccupied with winning and smearing their fellow apponent that they can't see that they are exposing themselves for the complete frauds that they are. The Democrat Media as well show itself for what it is. Another pathetic player in the Democrats party's Perpetual Fraud.
