Yet More Bad News For Clinton

Latino Superdelegate criticizes Hillary's firing of her Latino campaign manager:

"February 12, 2008 -- A prominent member of the national Democratic Party has circulated a sharp e-mail saying the removal of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle was disloyal to Hispanics and should give "pause" to superdelegates and voters.

The e-mail from, Steven Ybarra, a California superdelegate who heads the voting-rights committee of the DNC Hispanic Caucus, was sent to fellow caucus members in the hours after word broke that Solis Doyle - the most prominent Latina in Clinton's campaign - would be replaced by another close Clinton loyalist, Maggie Williams, who is black."

Personally I think this is unwarranted. I mean Hil went from being a 20 point over to a slight under with Omentum going against her. Heads were bound to roll and odds are the campaign manager's would be the first to go (and Mark Penn's but that's another story). It's even been suggested that she was hired because of loyalty rather than qualification. Regardless though, this comes a horrible time because Hill is going to need Texas to win and to win Texas she's going to need every Latino she can muster.
