Bringing Rhode Island Class and Values to a National Campaign
The political blog of the San Francisco Chronicle relays a story told by Hillary Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe abount an unnamed Democratic dissident less-than-enthusiastic about the Clinton political machine…
Just one of McAuliffe’s fond memories: ”We were all sitting at the Cafe Milano the night [John Kerry] wrapped up the [2004 Presidential nomination,] and a group of top Kerry campaign people came in, and I sent over a bottle of champagne,” he wrote…The group of Kerry aides drinking the champagne…raised their glasses to toast me from a few tables away, to thank me for the bottle….I raised my glass to them as well.McAuliffe’s final jab: ”So as they were drinking my champagne, they were already plotting to get their hands on the DNC bank account.”
‘Now we can get rid of McAuliffe and get control of the money,’ a drunk Kerry fund-raiser from Rhode Island said, loud enough to be overheard.
A top Kerry media consultant nodded, but held up his hand to silence the inebriated Kerry fund-raiser.
