Hillary Clinton supporters use Internet to keep her political torch aliveJanuary 29th, 2009 - 7:37 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Jan.29 (ANI): US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has pledged to avoid political infighting, but there are still some of her supporters carrying a torch for her ideas, and perhaps for an electoral comeback someday, reports the New York Daily News.
A web site going by the name of NoLimits.org will “keep you up to date with news about issues on which Hillary took a lead and we know you care so much about,” group President Ann Lewis said in an e-mail to as many as two million people culled from the Clinton campaign database.
Because No Limits is a registered nonprofit, “it cannot do anything political. It has to be nonpartisan,” said Lewis, a longtime senior adviser to Clinton.
In Clinton’’s job as secretary of state for President Obama, her political dealings are highly restricted.
For example, she shut down her political action committee.
Some, like Democratic consultant and former Bill Clinton aide Chris Lehane, dismiss talk that the group could be a springboard for Clinton to try again for the White House in, say, 2016.
But the University of Virginia’’s Larry Sabato countered: “Whenever a group like this says it’’s not a political organization, you just know it is.”
Democratic consultant Hank Sheinkopf said NoLimits.org is “one way to make sure that she - and/or the former President - still have political leverage.” (ANI)
