HILLARY DOING A "BILL?"
By Jon Christian Ryter
November 28, 2007
The rumor started early this summer. But, most people who heard the rumor dismissed it as simply rumor-mongering in a town known for "death by rumor." The most sizzling rumor this summer was about Hillary Clinton and her Indian/Pakistani aide. The first name droppers were Village Voice reporter Robert Morrow and blogger Luke Ford. Morrow described Clinton's aide, Huma Abedin to Fox News consultant Monica Crowley as "...a goddess from Kalamazoo, Michigan." Morrow told Crowley that the whispers along Pennsylvania Avenue (no one who works in government and values their jobs speaks above a whisper about Hillary Clinton's long suspected proclivity for same sex relationships and expects to still have a job at the end of the week) are that Hillary has had a long-standing affair with her aide de camp, Huma Abedlin.
"I recently said on Monica Crowley's radio show," Morrow said, "whisper campaigns are claiming that Hillary Clinton is Gayle King-ing her aide de camp, the glamorous Huma Abedin, an Indian'/Pakistani goddess from Kalamazoo." Musing out loud, Morrow pondered whether "...Hillary may be putting Huma out there in the press and purposely making her more visible as a preemptive strike that amounts to her hiding in plain sight. This way, no Republican can later say, 'Who is this gorgeous babe who spends so much intimate time with Hillary that the Observer called her Hill's "body person"? Was Gennifer Flowers' book right about Hillary's sexual taste?'" (Author's note: the term "Gayle King-ing" is a reference to recent rumors, quashed by Oprah Winfrey, that she was having a lesbian affair with her close friend and business confidant, Gayle King. Both Oprah and King denied a relationship. Nor has any evidence been produced by any of their accusers to support the claim.)
Rumors along Pennsylvania are as numerous, and about as accurate as the myriad of polls commissioned by the candidates themselves to show they are ahead of everyone else—or privately to see how badly they are trailing everyone else. There have been rumors about Hillary's lesbian dalliances for years—perhaps just idle chatter, perhaps to show Bill what's good for the gander may be even more enjoyable for the goose.

Then there are rumors about the "dark side" of Mormonism to suggest that popular Mormon candidate Mitt Romney—a very devout family man—is more dangerous than a 33° Mason. Or, there are the rumors that Rudy Giuliani's wife kills puppies. Or that Barack Obama is a Muslim extremist. (We'll talk about this one in a minute even though Obama, who is a member of a Christian denomination, denies the rumors.) It now appears that the Giuliani camp leaked a rumor of their own about Giuliani to gain sympathy from the Iowa and New Hampshire voters in order to bolster his sagging numbers. The rumor claims that when Giuliani was a US Attorney the mob voted on whether to whack him, and in a 3 to 2 vote, the heads of the Five Families decided to let him go on living. He parlayed his US Attorney job into the Mayor's office just as Eliot Spitzer parlayed his US Attorney job into the governor's mansion in Albany. I wonder how long it will be before the American people realize they don't want to elevate to high office those who build their political names as prosecutors. Prosecutors and ambitious Senators who investigate the rest of us are cynics who trust no one. They also make the worst presidents. Remember Richard Nixon?
Although it is not likely they will, the Clinton Campaign remains fearful that the Obama Campaign might add legs to the Hillary-Huma romance rumors by talking about it on the campaign trail. That may be why the Clinton Campaign suggested it had some juicy dirt on the freshman Senator from Illinois but would not use it. Is Hillary seeking a quid pro quo?
The dirt Hillary has on Barack has nothing to do with the fact that Hussein Obama was born and raised as a Wahabbi Muslim. And, by the way, that's the radical, extremist kind of Muslim if you didn't know. Obama's dirt-trail (like most politicians) is money-related. He's guilty of the same type of real estate manipulation that put former Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham [R-CA] in prison, and put Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid [D-NV] in the headlines in October, 2006 for collecting a $1.1 million real estate windfall on a deal that was shady at best.
Reid was allowed to buy a very expensive lot for $400 thousand to help the developers leap a whole bunch of political hurdles that sometimes stymie developers. Obama's "Reid-deal" was with developer Tony Rezko, an indicted political fundraiser (who was, by the way, also one of Obama's fundraisers). When Obama bought into the real estate deal, the Feds were investigating Rezko for attempting to extort kickbacks from government deals. The Obama-Rezko deal—like Reid's—entailed buying adjoining lots in a residential subdivision. Obama bought his for $300 thousand less than market. Rezko's wife paid the full retail price for hers—from the same owner. Rumors surfaced that the Rezkos paid part of the cost of Obama's lot. Rezko also donated $60 thousand to Obama's Senate campaign—and had Obama hire one of Rezko's business associates—as an unpaid intern in his Senate office. The business associate, John Armanda, even kicked in a donation of $11,500 on his own to snag the job. When you have insider access to members of Congress, you have access to the wheelers and dealers than not even lobbyists have. I'm not suggesting they were, but handsome profits can be made with that type of access—even by an unpaid intern.
As Oprah Winfrey begins her tour with Democratic hopeful Sen. Barack Hussein Obama, the political windfall for the freshman Senator will be almost incalculable. Today, Obama is leading Clinton in Iowa 30% to 26%. While the Clinton talking heads claim the race for Iowa is neck-and-neck, the reality is that Obama has pulled ahead and it is unlikely Clinton will be able to make up the difference without some Clintonesque sleight-of-hand skullduggery. And, where Clinton had a 23 point lead over Obama in New Hampshire in September, she now leads him by only 10 points—34% to 24%. With Oprah campaigning for Obama, Hillary's lead in New Hampshire will vanish like the Rose Law Firm billing records (which surfaced only after the statute of limitations for prosecuting Hillary ran out).
this is all old stuff. The words on everyone's lips today is Huma Abedin.
Is she, or is she not, Hillary's lesbian lover? The British tabloids
are having a field day with the rumors, because the Brits love smut.
The Sunday Times admits that "...nobody is sure who is behind the
attack on Mrs. Clinton...but the claims of lesbianism...found fertile
ground on right wing websites." Village Voice—not exactly what you
would call a conservative cybervoice—wrote the story on November 1.
The Observer covered it, and a host of blogs on both sides of the aisle
covered the rumor that, as of yet, has not been substantiated as fact—even
though a top level US Department of Justice official is telling bloggers
who ask that the rumors of Hillary Clinton fooling around with Huma
Abedlin is based on reality. So my question is: is Hillary doing
