Hillary Clinton's Senate Office Used the Rev. Wright's Pastor's Page to Recruit Legislative Assistant

Apparently, Senator Hillary Clinton thought well enough of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright in February 2006 to have him mention in his Pastor's Page in his Church's Sunday Program that her office was looking for a legislative assistant. (You can find it here; scroll down to page 9). Here is how the announcement reads in the program:

LEGISLATIVE ASSISTANT POSITION WITHIN SENATOR CLINTON'S OFFICE Senator Clinton's office is looking for a Legislative Assistant to handle education, labor, housing, women's and children's issues, including the effect of media on children, child welfare and reproductive rights. This person will be Senator Clinton's lead staff person for the education and labor issues that are considered by the Senate HELP Committee. He or she will be responsible for developing legislative proposals and implementing strategies to get them enacted, staffing the Senator in meetings, responding to constituent requests, and writing talking points and speeches. Please send resumes to kyla_pollack@clinton.senate.gov

Yet, this is what she said in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review on March 25, 2008:

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, in a wide-ranging interview today with Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reporters and editors, said she would have left her church if her pastor made the sort of inflammatory remarks Sen. Barack Obama's former pastor made. "He would not have been my pastor," Clinton said. "You don't choose your family, but you choose what church you want to attend."

You also choose what church from which you want to recruit legislative assistants. Apparently, in February 2006, those who sat under the Rev. Wright's theological tutelage were considered promising prospects to assist the New York senator on legislative matters concerning the common good.

I did my own sleuthing on this one.

This is very interesting...you should send a copy to some of the major news channels.

Not sure what to make of this. The bulletin was from Feb 2006. My first thought is that HRC had a chat with OHB in their Senate office building and he offered to have an announcement published for her in the Trinity UCC publication, which he did. That's the "what's the big deal?" scenario. On the other hand, HRC is originally from Illinois / Chicago (the upper crust parts, I'm sure) so it's not impossible that she has first-hand experience with an influencial black mega-church that delivers Democrat votes in a big way every two years and sent along the Help Wanted notice on her own.

OR this is really the explanation for why Jeremiah Wright seems to be doing everything that the Obama campaign wouldn't want him to do, popping back into the news every other day- he's secretly a HILLARY SUPPORTER!!! It's an inside job! No one does dirty like the Clintons!

It's fun to imagine it, anyway. I'm sure some Obama supporters will soon start running with this line, though. Sad, really.

Power for the course

Uh, I guess I'm a bit slow, but can someone tell me why this matters? Are you suggesting that Hilary Clinton hates America?

check out the ad at p 19 of the church bulletin linked in the first paragraph of the post above for The Trumpet magazine...is that Sen. Obama's picture on the cover?
