  •  Has she even officially announced? (0+ / 0-)

    I'm all for replacing Schwartz with another woman, but Margolies is 70. We should be getting younger people, not older.

    •  Sounds like someone's not respecting (8+ / 0-)

      "the Clinton family's support of Marjorie as family and friend".  Pretty soon Bill's going to start holding rallies in IN-02 about why places shouldn't hire you.  "Ah'm just saying, whoever the other person than HoosierD42 is happens to the most qualified."

        Clinton's not the only one guilty of such scare tactics, however. After Gillibrand was appointed to the Senate, more liberal politicians like Steve Israel considered running against her in a primary (this was before her move to the left). Reportedly, Rahm Emanuel visited Israel and told him that if he were to challenge Gillibrand, he would face the full force of Obama's campaigning prowess: the POTUS would support Gillibrand every step of the way, fundraise for her, campaign with her in Israel's home turf of NYC, and even ensure that Israel would not get any leadership positions in the House once he had lost the primary in a landslide.

        Israel quickly backed off, needless to say. I'm sure he didn't want to find his beloved horse's severed head in his bed sheets.
