It’s the quote in which Hillary attacked the Bush White House in these words: “I can tell you this: It’s very hard to stop people who have no shame about what they’re doing…. It is very hard to stop people who have never been acquainted with the truth.”p> DEMOCRATIC WALLWEED br> Judging by where Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean has spent the last few days, he almost certainly attempted to get invited to Sen. Hillary Clinton ‘s and Sen. Harry Reid ‘s fundraising events in Los Angeles. According to DNC sources, Dean intentionally planned a West Coast swing around the dates Clinton and Reid had circled for their events. On Sunday, Dean was in Seattle, a quick shot down the Left Coast to Los Angeles, with plans to fly to San Francisco for events Monday. Before Seattle, Dean spent time with Democratic donors in Montana. /p>
There is an increasing whiff of desperation permeating the finance side of the DNC, what with Dean apparently feeling like the nerd at a fraternity rush party scooted off to a room to hang with the foreign kid and the nosepicker, and big-time DNC fundraisers jumping ship like rats sensing something is amiss. On Monday it was announced that three high-profile fundraising officials were leaving Dean in the lurch: Bridget Siegel, finance director for the New York metropolitan area (including parts of Long Island, Westchester County, and Connecticut), Lori Kreloff, finance director for California, and Nancy Eiring, director of grassroots fundraising.
