WASHINGTON, DC - Sources close to Hillary Clinton say she will announce her run for President.
Hillary Clinton came to WWN Headquarters and told editors that she is livid about the downgrade of the U.S. Credit Rating. “I’ve stood silent long enough. I don’t think Obama is a leader and I know… I know I can do a much better job. I am a true leader and… I am going to challenge Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination for the President of the United States.”
The White House was quick to deny the news, saying that as far as they knew Hillary Clinton is happy as Secretary of State and remains loyal to Barack Obama.
But, WWN has learned that in recent weeks, Bill Clinton, has been meeting with democratic operatives in Washington and grass roots leaders early primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. Bill thinks this time around, Hillary can easily wrestle the nomination from a weakened Barack Obama.
“It’s her time. The nation desperately needs Hillary. The world desperately needs Hillary,” Bill Clinton told WWN’s Frank Lake in phone interview last night.
Some cynical Republican consultants feel that this was the plan all along. “They made a pact back in 2008. Barack would serve one term and get Obamacare passed, then Hillary would serve two terms and pass the other elements of their progressive agenda. The plan is working perfectly.”
Sources close to Hillary said, however, that Hillary has not spoken to Barack Obama personally in over three weeks. “Hillary feels that President Obama has moved dramatically to the center and abandoned the core progressive principles they both old dear.”
A quick Rasmussen poll of Democratic primary voters puts the race at 52% for Hillary and 45% for Obama with 3% undecided.
James Carville, Paul Begala and, surprisingly, Dick Morris, have all signed up to join the Hillary for President team. 2012 is going to be a wild year.
Bill Clinton likes Hillary’s chances. “Hillary is going to crush Obama. And the country is going to get two for one. We are back, baby. We’re back!!”
Republicans and Tea Party Patriots are… very worried. VERY worried.
