Hillary Clinton's Secret Message

By now, most of you have seen Hillary Clinton's email to her supporters. Yes, we are actually supposed to believe she is going to concede the election and help Obama.  But anybody who has been following the election to date knows that will never happen.  Bill and Hillary Clinton will never surrender their fight for power, their narcissistic claim on the White House.  Fortunately, if you really take the time to analyze that email you can discern the truth.  

First, the email in question:

Dear XXX,

I wanted you to be one of the first to know: on Saturday, I will hold an event in Washington D.C. to thank everyone who has supported my campaign. Over the course of the last 16 months, I have been privileged and touched to witness the incredible dedication and sacrifice of so many people working for our campaign. Every minute you put into helping us win, every dollar you gave to keep up the fight meant more to me than I can ever possibly tell you.

On Saturday, I will extend my congratulations to Senator Obama and my support for his candidacy. This has been a long and hard-fought campaign, but as I have always said, my differences with Senator Obama are small compared to the differences we have with Senator McCain and the Republicans.

I have said throughout the campaign that I would strongly support Senator Obama if he were the Democratic Party's nominee, and I intend to deliver on that promise.

When I decided to run for president, I knew exactly why I was getting into this race: to work hard every day for the millions of Americans who need a voice in the White House.

I made you -- and everyone who supported me -- a promise: to stand up for our shared values and to never back down. I'm going to keep that promise today, tomorrow, and for the rest of my life.

I will be speaking on Saturday about how together we can rally the party behind Senator Obama. The stakes are too high and the task before us too important to do otherwise.

I know as I continue my lifelong work for a stronger America and a better world, I will turn to you for the support, the strength, and the commitment that you have shown me in the past 16 months. And I will always keep faith with the issues and causes that are important to you.

In the past few days, you have shown that support once again with hundreds of thousands of messages to the campaign, and again, I am touched by your thoughtfulness and kindness.

I can never possibly express my gratitude, so let me say simply, thank you.

Sincerely,

Hillary Rodham Clinton

Unfortunately, I can't recreate the email exactly the way I received it, but I'm pretty sure the font she used was "California." Not only that, but the email went out after midnight, meaning it went out on June 5th, instead of June 4th.  What is the significance of that?  Well, Robert Kennedy was shot, IN CALIFORNIA, on JUNE FIFTH!  Anybody paying even the slightest bit of attention can surely see what she is really saying - she intends to assassinate Obama to secure the nomination for herself.  If not that, then she is surely, once again, begging somebody else to do the dirty deed for her.  How else could you interpret the timing and the font?

Next, a lot of people have counted the number of times she used "I," instead of "Obama," but you're all missing the obvious.  Look at it again.  It's binary.  Those aren't Is, they're 1s.  The code (you have to add two 0s, since binary has 8 places) is 00101111.  That is the number 47.  Yes, FORTY-SEVEN.  Just like the 47%-46% advantage she holds over Obama in the April 29, 2008 Gallup Poll.  How obvious can she be?  Even this supposed "concession" letter is nothing but another argument to the super delegates that she should be the Party's nominee.  

Also, did you notice the color of the type?  Yup, BLACK!  But what was the overwhelming color in the email?  WHITE!  She could have used a black background and white letters, but she chose not to. Why not?  Because she was saying white is better than black, that maybe black is good for speechifying, for just saying things, but if you want real strength, the underlying color, the one you have to base everything on, is white.

Why is she holding this meeting in Washington D.C., anyway?  Obama is from Illinois.  If she wants to start making up for all her crimes on the campaign trail, shouldn't she be going to him, instead of asking people to come to her?

Not just that, but did you see how she wrote "Senator McCain AND the Republicans"?  See what she did?  She said Senator McCain isn't a Republican.  Why would she do that?  Well, the only reason I can think of is to help him, given how poorly Republican are received these days.

I knew we could never trust a Clinton.  Hell, she's laughing at us, continuing the fight.  Based on that letter, I wouldn't be surprised to see McCain name her his running mate for November.

Re: Hillary Clinton's Secret Message

The past two days the media is pretending as though Hillary is desperate for a VP job. Hillary's rules are different:


The senator's remarks came in response to a question from Democratic Rep. Nydia Velazquez who said she believed the best way for Obama to win over key voting blocs, including Hispanics, would be for him to choose Clinton as his running mate.

"I am open to it," Clinton replied, if it would help the party's prospects in November.

They conveniently dropped if it would help the party's prospects in November

Re: Hillary Clinton's Secret Message

Here's the thing... Your snark is not too apparent.  Given JUST HOW FUCKED UP some people on MyDD have been, something this outrageous doesn't really resonate as SNARK.  After the Alegre and Susan Hsu (or whatever her namewas ) diaries, I wouldn't be surprised to see a serious diary.

The other thing is... Secret Service doesn't like to read things like that.  So be careful.

Good snark

though some of the zealous Obama supporters will probably believe you.  I hope Sen. Clinton has a prominent role in the party for this election and future ones.  She connects better than almost anyone else to a demographic (working class/high school grads) than isn't really democratic turf.

by Student Guy 2008-06-05 11:14AM | 0 recs
True, but a clarification is in order

Clinton did better than Obama in the upper ends of the age scale.  The support started swinging in the forties, by the fifties, support was significantly in her favor, and by the sixties, her margin was substantial.

My point is that education most likely followed these age preferences, too, but the oldest group (by far her strongest age group) would also be the least educated group, so that accounts for some of the lower average educational levels of her supporters.  Only a relatively small portion of people over 65 have college degrees while a large minority of people in their thirties have one.  Even in the 1970s, when people who are in their fifties today would have been in college, a much smaller proportion of high school graduates attended college than do today (The increased participation is part of the explanation for the relative decline in the quality of the average college graduate because the average entering student is below the average entering student of 30 years ago in relative academic ability).

I am a Ph.D. but I am over fifty.  Among highly educated people of my age group (at least the ones I know), Clinton holds her own in earning our support.

Re: I

And if she had used 'we', the blogosphere morons who are behind the smear about the use of "I" would be accusing her of speaking as if she were the Queen.

It's stupid, and only illuminates the level of hatred on one side directed at Hillary.

This was not helpful here now.

To find that it's a crosspost from the big orange dumpster is well, informative.  After all, their leader successfully framed Hillary as 'darkening' Obama's skin tone even after that was debunked.

Shameful site overall.

Re: I

No, on Tuesday night there was so much vitriol because she talked about her accomplishments in the campaign, there was selective outrage among Obama supporters because she kept talking about herself: "I".

This diarist didn't create the smear, it was there all along, but it (the smear) is more something that would be expected and promoted on the other site where the diarist crossposted this.  It should never have come here.

The underlying premise, the 'suspicion' of Hillary's' 'underlying nefarious motives' for every sneeze is something that her opposition has to own: they created it, I'm invoking Colin Powell's PB rule.  At any rate, this wasn't helpful in moving forward.  The sad part of that is that at least one Obama supporter who has stated that in commentary really isn't ready to move forward either, still working to denigrate Hillary at each opportunity.

There is no "controversy". There is no "commentary" there was one comment which was dismissed immediately by the people responding.

Re: Delete Immediately

This would make sense if it mocked some insidious trend that needed to be checked.  This is a response to a particular diary from an different blog.  Posted as a diary here, it would obviously be read as an insult to Obama supporters in general and a challenge for people to reiterate the problems they DID have with Clinton's campaign.  In other words this was totally unproductive taunting that could accomplish nothing but useless fighting.

Re: Delete Immediately

I agree with you in part (surprise) because it has no place here.  It's not an insult to Obama supporters, however, it's insulting to Clinton and her supporters, because the ensuing crapfest allows it to be considered as 'subtle truth'.

Ha! I guess it's true both ways

To me it sounds insulting because it implies that people who criticized Hillary were just latching onto conspiracy bs and they didn't genuinely have things to complain about.  But I can see how you see it too.  

What a wonderful day when you and I can be bugged by the same bad diary.  Maybe we're going to be alright after all.  ;)

The only reason I can see to hammer out arguments left over from the nomination is if it is something that is getting in the way of beating McCain and the GOP in general.  Most of the stuff is best left on the field and I gladly shake the hand of anyone from the other side of that battle ready to get on with the big one.

about this diary. It is funny. Dhonig is lampooning some of the ridiculous can't-let-it-go crazifying that is still going on even though the primaries are over. This is political satire, and though it may not be Voltaire, it made me laugh at myself. I have tried to be good lately (with the exception of comments in one diary this afternoon where people were defending the Hillary-won-the-popular-vote meme), but you see, I am on the borderline of being a member of the can't-let-it-go crowd.

One thing I've learned on these pages

Many liberals (possibly because many of them take themselves so seriously) have a very poor ear for satire.  Perhaps that is why so many who do engage in it make it so heavy handed and obvious that it often appears very sophomoric and amateurish.

Re: One thing I've learned on these pages

Oh, I can be more subtle (like in the cartoons below).  But in this particular case, even as heavy-handed as this was, a lot of people are taking offense BECAUSE THEY'RE TAKING IT SERIOUSLY!  I once wrote a diary entitled Their reality has lapped our satire, about how absurd the far right had become, to a point it was not even possible to satirize.  I sure did not think, though, that we would ever reaech the same point.

of over-the-top rants and satire because their spokesperson engage in that no-holds-barred style more frequently.  Even though most of them believe their ideas and prejudices, I think more of them than on the left understand that many of their spokespersons are over-the-top and hyperbolic in their deliveries.

Not a Good Way to Reach Out to Clinton Supporters

If you want Obama to win, you've got to look ahead and reach out to Clinton supporters. Obama is not entitled to their support, he must earn their votes.

Clinton supporters are disappointed and demoralized. It's very difficult for them to be the ones who reach out. If McCain reaches out to Clinton supporters by picking either Sarah Palin, Condoleeza Rice or Meg Whitman as VP, Obama could be the one facing the uphill battle.

And if it's a response to a dKos diary, I don't know why it's cross-posted here. There's no larger issue that would make your diary worthwhile here on its own.

Furthermore, even if you were incensed by some random guy's mostly-unread conspiracy diary, so what? Did you really need to post an entire mocking response to a few goofballs?

I see one Clinton supporter I recognize who missed the joke. The rest appear to be Obama people displaying their usual outrage.

Looks like you hit your target, so I say ignore their slings and arrows.

Exactly, thank you!

That was the 'target.'  Trying to make fools of those 'Obama people' and their outrage.  

Yes, this is some sweet unity here.  

It's McTastic.

It's not the diarist, it's the Obama people who are making fools of themselves here.

Re: Exactly, thank you!

I'm making a fool of myself by not laughing at a whiny tantrum of self-pity that someone has unsuccessfully attempted to express as humor?

No, you are making a fool of yourself by taking such offense.

Re: Exactly, thank you!

I'm not offended. I kind of feel sorry for the diarist that he found this foolishness worth so much effort.

Re: Hillary Clinton's Secret Message

Well, I thought it was very, very funny--of course I'm a Hillary supporter, so I guess that stands to reason.    Come on, Obama supporters, lighten up--you need to be able to take just a little of what you dish out.

Laughing is good for those of us who still have  indigestion about the past few months, so let us laugh--even better, join us.  

(Krugman's one-sentence blog entry provides just one reason why I'm still having a hard time comin' round:

Sigh...

Re: Hillary Clinton's Secret Message

Get over yourself.  Hillary lost.  That's it.

Either get with the Dems or get out.  But don't sit around this site acting like a killjoy for Obama.  Nobody needs to beg your vote.

The Clinton supporters who seem to keep the focus on themselves (i.e. I need time to digest, ponder etc.) need to think about this:  "Chelsea is ugly because Janet Reno is her father." -John McCain (who also publicly referred to his wife as being a "cunt").

So stop with the drama.  Stop the attention seeking.  Nobody spends so much time trying to coddle up to the "runner-up" in any other form of sport or contest.  It's not about you or Clinton.

Re: Hillary Clinton's Secret Message

I case it hasn't occurred to the diarist, Obama is the biggest egomaniac in politics today.

Re: Hillary Clinton's Secret Message

Why not, the Obama crowd supported Republicans and Independents being able to vote for him in Iowa?  Don't presume to tell me where I belong or don't belong.

I approve!

The diary that I was thinking about was a WHOLE LOT WORSE!

I wanted to write a diary saying that HRC had decided to slit her wrists and then hang herself in penitence for her bad behavior, for all the terrible things she said during the campaign - i.e. horror of horrors "As far as I know" - and for not immediately and I mean immediately jumping up on the stage and telling all the people who had sent in money and worked their frigging butts off that they were ALL WRONG all along and that they should immediately chant Obama!  

Good God, the woman is shameless to use the pronoun I.  Maybe that's why more and more people use the word myself where the word I should be - because it is just so wrong to use the word I.  What a horrible President she would have been - using the I word.

Yes, I saw Jon Stewart's little clip about Hillary and saying I want, I think, I, I, I.  

Good snark!  Like as I said, mine was MUCH WORSE!

Re: Hillary Clinton's Secret Message

If McCain names Hillary as his V.P. he will get my vote. That's the only way he could get my vote. As of now I will not vote at all except for down-ticket Dem's.

Ridiculous snark

This isn't even amusing or funny in the least.  I can't believe that you'd spend any time at all, articulating such a stupid 'joke'.  Plainly stupid.  Not even snark. I wish I could have my time back.

Hillarious!

It didn't really fool me because I recognized your name as a Clinton supporter.

Great diary.  Rec'd.

Work on your snark.  You'll get it eventually.

Re: Hillary Clinton's Secret Message

Excellent analysis. I knew it. I knew she was up to something. She is so conniving, you know, like all women are. I knew she was a racist too. She's blowing that dog whistle again for all her racist supporters. We need to alert the MSM and the Obama campaign that she is up to her old tricks again.

/snark

Let's get this up on the Rec List.

What Really Worries me

If you read her press release backwards, it seems to indicate she had something to do with John Lennon's asassination

Umm...

I know it's snark. But the backstory in the comments section could of been added so it made sense.

Nice try though.

Re: Hillary Clinton's Secret Message
Thank you, dhonig, we needed to lighten up a little bit around here.
For the first time in months, I popped over to Dkos this morning and was amazed at all the Hillary fear still going on over there, so the snark factor kicked in right away for me.
Plus, I've always liked your diaries. :)

Re: Hillary Clinton's Secret Message

Great diary. If someone can't relate to the snark then people are not aware of what happened during the campaign.

Lets have some laughter at our own expense at times, shall we?
