I got a cold chill, After watching "Primary Colors" Jack Stanton(John Travolta) meets with Gov. Fred Picker(Larry Hagman) and talks him into dropping out of the race because of his indiscretions. When Jack is talking to Henry Burton(Adrian Lester) he answers a question about how much is too far when discrediting someone, Jack answers "How Many Angels Dance On The Head Of A Pin". I wonder how many times Joe Klein heard that non-answer when following the Clinton Campaign and who actually said it.

"Primary Colors"  being re-run on HBO the same day as the Politco Hit Piece "What Clinton Wishes She Could Say"

by John Harris and Jim Vandehei it became obvious that these two are playing the role of Joe Klein.

I had an epiphany about how the Clintons embed certain Press Agents into their campaign to get a favorable message out. When I saw Harris on Hardball and it was obvious that he is being a mouthpiece for the Clinton campaign and is vested in her getting elected.  

Look at the consequences of a Hillary loss on these reporters.  After embedding themselves in her campaign much like Joe Klein did in 92’ they’re hoping to get a similar book deal.  I couldn't believe in his Hardball interview how he exposed himself as an outlet of disinformation the Clinton campaign is putting out to the Super Delegates.  

Let’s face it; a book based on a successful campaign sells, vs. a failed one.  It’s all about the money.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
