An inter­est­ing story is being told in NY Mag today:

the Clin­ton loy­al­ists’ offi­cial involve­ment in the Weiner cam­paign is unclear — but it seems they’ve had a hand in all of the major mile­stones lead­ing to Wein­er­gate 2.0.

Ah so the Clin­ton folks were work­ing to push Weiner, per­haps hav­ing an ally in NY City for 2016 was the plan after all.

Philippe Reines, Hillary Clinton’s long­time spokesman, has been par­tic­u­larly involved in Weiner’s may­oral bid. He trav­eled from Wash­ing­ton to the Weiner’s New York apart­ment last sum­mer to sit in on their inter­view with Peo­ple mag­a­zine. Abe­din called Reines just before she spoke to reporters at a press con­fer­ence last week, then he report­edly called Hillary “to make sure she knew was about to unfold.”

But the story is these peo­ple aren’t there to push the Anthony Weiner cam­paign, they are there to push the Huma Abe­din cam­paign.

In addi­tion to Mr. Reines, other long­time Clin­ton loy­al­ists, includ­ing Mag­gie Williams, who man­aged Mrs. Clinton’s unsuc­cess­ful 2008 pres­i­den­tial bid, Cheryl Mills, who was Mrs. Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Depart­ment, and Mr. Clinton’s long­time aide Doug Band, have all reached out to Ms. Abe­din to offer sup­port and guid­ance, accord­ing to sev­eral peo­ple close to the Clin­tons. Ms. Abe­din, now 37, is some­thing of a lit­tle sis­ter to the group, hav­ing started work­ing in the Clin­ton White House at the age of 19.

Lit­tle sis­ter? These high pro­file Clin­ton peo­ple are all get­ting involved because they con­sider her a lit­tle sister?

NY Mag & Mar­garet Hart­man again:

Even if Team Clin­ton offi­cially wants noth­ing to do with Weiner, and finds the “stand by your man” Hillary com­par­isons awk­ward, they are will­ing to let it be know that they won’t aban­don Abedin.

Aban­don Huma? Let me remind you of what I wrote two days ago:

In 1996 Bill Clin­ton was pres­i­dent and peo­ple were already talk­ing about a polit­i­cal future for Hillary. Work­ing with her must have been on of the most cov­eted posi­tions for a young woman in the demo­c­rat party. Cer­tainly there must have been plenty of sons and daugh­ters of pols, cam­paign work­ers and demo­c­rat fundrais­ers who would have died for the chance to be in that position.

Yet Huma Abadin a young lady still in col­lege who has spent a life­time in Saudi Ara­bia not only gets the job, but has stayed with Hillary Clin­ton her entire life since.

Remind me, who is the one with the power, with the juice? Who is the one with the back­ers that peo­ple want to asso­ciate with?

I think peo­ple are com­pletely miss­ing the story here. I am rapidly becom­ing of the opin­ion that Anthony Weiner is totally inci­den­tal to this cam­paign, the real story is Huma and the goal to pro­tect her in any why pos­si­ble while advanc­ing her future in any way the Clin­tons can.

The ques­tion from the 31st remains: Why?

An interesting story is being told in NY Mag today:

the Clinton loyalists’ official involvement in the Weiner campaign is unclear — but it seems they’ve had a hand in all of the major milestones leading to Weinergate 2.0.

Ah so the Clinton folks were working to push Weiner, perhaps having an ally in NY City for 2016 was the plan after all.

Philippe Reines, Hillary Clinton’s longtime spokesman, has been particularly involved in Weiner’s mayoral bid. He traveled from Washington to the Weiner’s New York apartment last summer to sit in on their interview with People magazine. Abedin called Reines just before she spoke to reporters at a press conference last week, then he reportedly called Hillary “to make sure she knew was about to unfold.”

But the story is these people aren’t there to push the Anthony Weiner campaign, they are there to push the Huma Abedin campaign.

In addition to Mr. Reines, other longtime Clinton loyalists, including Maggie Williams, who managed Mrs. Clinton’s unsuccessful 2008 presidential bid, Cheryl Mills, who was Mrs. Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department, and Mr. Clinton’s longtime aide Doug Band, have all reached out to Ms. Abedin to offer support and guidance, according to several people close to the Clintons. Ms. Abedin, now 37, is something of a little sister to the group, having started working in the Clinton White House at the age of 19.

Little sister? These high profile Clinton people are all getting involved because they consider her a little sister?

NY Mag & Margaret Hartman again:

Even if Team Clinton officially wants nothing to do with Weiner, and finds the “stand by your man” Hillary comparisons awkward, they are willing to let it be know that they won’t abandon Abedin.

Abandon Huma? Let me remind you of what I wrote two days ago:

In 1996 Bill Clinton was president and people were already talking about a political future for Hillary. Working with her must have been on of the most coveted positions for a young woman in the democrat party. Certainly there must have been plenty of sons and daughters of pols, campaign workers and democrat fundraisers who would have died for the chance to be in that position.

Yet Huma Abadin a young lady still in college who has spent a lifetime in Saudi Arabia not only gets the job, but has stayed with Hillary Clinton her entire life since.

Remind me, who is the one with the power, with the juice? Who is the one with the backers that people want to associate with?

I think people are completely missing the story here. I am rapidly becoming of the opinion that Anthony Weiner is totally incidental to this campaign, the real story is Huma and the goal to protect her in any why possible while advancing her future in any way the Clintons can.

The question from the 31st remains: Why?
