Well this is sorta interesting…
About an hour ago I got a robocall at my San Francisco home asking us to sign a petition urging Hillary Clinton to run for the Democratic presidential nomination. The call mentions the site Run Hillary 2012.net.
And now California…
Here’s what’s the woman on the call says:
America would be better off today if Hillary Clinton was our president. The Wall Street robber barons would be jailed, young people could afford college and find jobs and six million homeowners wouldn’t face foreclosure. We need to change course. Please sign our petition to draft Hillary Clinton for president. Visit RunHillary2012.net. In 2012, we can elect Hillary Clinton president of the United States.
Sort of a stretch, those claims. And maybe Buster Posey wouldn’t have broken his leg?
In September, Dick Cheney also went public with his belief that it would be a pretty good idea if Clinton ran. Since he’s the person with perhaps the single least amount of influence on Democratic voters in history, the woman making this phone call probably can’t do any worse in inciting a groundswell of support for the non-candidate.
