Clintonites Seethe

They're hopping mad at Obama's hiring of Patti Solis Doyle:

"Either one of two things happen," said the [Clinton] bundler. "Hillary is selected as vice president and they fire Patti, or Hillary is not going to be the vice president." The bundler said that Clinton loyalists were livid over the pick. "You don't hire Patti Solis Doyle for her operational expertise," said the bundler. "You don't do that. This is someone who failed dramatically at her job. You only bring her on to fuck someone else."

Touchy much? You might think picking a long-time Clintonite would be a unifying move. But with the Clintons, the egos are so large and the sense of entitlement so great you have to be extra careful. Drum has more.
