The Hildebeeste: Inching Timidly With Money

Nobody would call HRC a 'visionary.' She's a very cautious individual, as her Senate record demonstrates. In the words of Josh Green, "a timid, calculating, pol." Nothing bold, nothing new--strictly buy-and-sell retail politics, with the single exception being her 'HillaryCare' program--and you know where that went.

And "buy-and-sell" retail politics is more than just a phrase.

Disgraced fund-raiser Norman Hsu did a lot more than just pump $850,000 into Hillary Clinton's campaign bank account: He also raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local, state, and federal candidates who have endorsed Clinton or whose support she courted

...In at least some cases, Clinton or her aides directly channeled contributions from Hsu and his network to other politicians supportive of her presidential campaign, according to interviews and campaign finance records

With that quote from the Boston Globe, the Captain draws the obvious conclusion:

This revelation shows that Hillary and her campaign didn't just passively receive funds from Hsu. The campaign actively worked with Hsu to distribute the funds to other campaigns, and in return, Hillary bought endorsements with the stolen money.

It's a well-worn formula.

Of course, the "bought-and-sold" include DarthDoyle, now fast becoming Wisconsin's most-purchased Governor.
