Nobody seems to be paying any attention to this statement made on the LaRouche website from EIR, May 16, 2008 edition. It appears to me that the Clinton campaign has neither confirmed or denied these assertions.
I don’t believe that someone even as out of the mainstream as Lyndon LaRouche, if he wants to maintain even the slightest degree of acceptance in political world, would make this kind of a statement without some basis.
“Unimpeachable sources very close to the Clintons have reported that the morning after the Indiana and North Carolina primaries, calls were made by individuals, recognized as high-ranking members of the U.S. political elite, informing the Clintons that, “while this was not necessarily [their] position,” they wanted it passed along that under no circumstances would Hillary Clinton be permitted to take the Democratic nomination, and that, if by some miscalculation, she did take the nomination, she would never be permitted to take the Presidency. Apparently, the messages concluded that, if, by some unanticipated occurrence, she were to actually go ahead and win the Presidency, it would be the shortest-lived Presidency in the history of the United States. The message was explicit: The combination of Hillary and Bill Clinton in the White House meant a Presidency that would simply wield more independence and more power than they were willing to tolerate. Undoubtedly, Clinton’s continual pledge to represent the lower 80% of the U.S. population, and the unspoken fear that some of her policies seem to lean too far in the direction of the proposals put forward by Lyndon LaRouche, have lowered their toleration level.”
Sounds like Washington insider death threats to the Clinton family to me....
