This is pathetic

I like and respect Hillary Clinton. But has any politician hurt herself more with a presidential run?

This, from a few moments ago:

(CNN) – No, she’s not leaving politics, but she is still trying to retire more than $25 million of campaign debt. Sen. Hillary Clinton’s Web site is advertising a contest to win a summer “retirement dinner” with the former presidential contender. The price for a chance to win is a contribution to her creditors. “Summer is a time for simple pleasures: family vacations, baseball games, and dinner out under the stars,” Clinton’s e-mail to supporters says. “At least it is if you aren’t running for president! It sure is nice having a little more time on my hands, and I’d love to spend some of it with you.” Those interested in helping Clinton retire the debt can pay from $10 to more than $2,300 for a chance to win the dinner and “talk about whatever you’d like.” The campaign’s site doesn’t say where the winner will dine with the senator, but it mentions that round-trip transportation and the total value may run $3,000.


Come to think of it, I’m inspired. Anyone who deposits more than $10,000 into my Swiss bank account (account #: 3432-3212-4554-4443; ask for Sven) qualifies for a dinner with THE one and only Jeff Pearlman at his favorite restaurant! Supplies limited—act now!!
