Breaking News on the Hillary Campaign Front ...


One terrylyons.com blog commentator started his/her reply to a post I made on John Edwards with "Obama, Obama, Obama."

Well, I think Hillary Clinton's campaign manager might have made the decision to leave the campaign trail after news of the TL post made it to Clinton's campaign headquarters.

In all seriousness, the news today is another major step forward for the Obama for President campaign. I wonder when "Billary" (sic) will call upon Doug Sosnik to step up to the senior level of the campaign?

Here's what CNN had to say:

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton has replaced her campaign manager with a longtime adviser, Maggie Williams, the campaign announced Sunday.

Williams served as Clinton's chief of staff when the New York senator was first lady.

Ex-campaign chief Patti Solis Doyle has been reassigned to a senior adviser's job, the Clinton's campaign announced in a memo to its staff.

Until then, I join the blogger to be named later - in saying, "Obama."

Here is the story from the Clinton campaign side:

Statement from Hillary Clinton

Patti Solis Doyle has done an extraordinary job in getting us to this point - within reach of the nomination - and I am enormously grateful for her friendship and her outstanding work. And, as Patti has said, this already has been the longest presidential campaign in history and one that has required enormous sacrifices of everyone and our families. I look forward to her continued advice in the months ahead. Patti and I have worked with Maggie Williams for more than a decade. I am lucky to have Maggie on board and I know she will lead our campaign with great skill towards the nomination.
Patti Solis Doyle sent the note below to campaign staff this afternoon:
Over a year ago Hillary launched her campaign for President.
Her announcement began a historic effort that has inspired millions and brought hundreds of thousands to their feet all across this nation.
I have been proud to manage this campaign, and prouder still to call Hillary my friend for more than sixteen years. I know that she will make a great President.
This has already been the longest Presidential campaign in the history of our nation, and one that has required enormous sacrifices from all of us and our families.
During the last month I have been working closely with my longtime friend, Maggie Williams.
This week Maggie will begin to assume the duties of campaign manager. I will serve as a senior adviser to Hillary and the campaign and travel with Hillary from time to time on the road. Maggie is a remarkable person and I am confident that she will do a fabulous job.
