Assistance from the staunch Hillary supporters here at BMG is appreciated, since you’ve been such stalwart foot soldiers in the top down campaign to reinstall Clintonism to it’s rightful place. Input and suggestions are encouraged. Any transgressions against Clintonism, no matter how small, should be documented.
This list will also serve a second, and arguably more important purpose. In the unlikely event that Hillary wins the nomination, but loses the general election to her good friend John McCain, blame will need to be assigned. The ECL will then become a useful starting point for the greater Purge to follow. Final determinations and penalties will be made by Hillary campaign consultants, Burson-Marsteller.
