Obama leads by only 13.51% in North Carolina

April 9, 2008

Hillary continues to recover in North Carolina

Adding the latest poll to the collection of North Carolina polls, I’ve come up with the following projections.

Barack Obama 50.66
Hillary Clinton 37.15

Hillary is just within striking distance of Obama, although I believe that when some more polls come out Obama’s lead will be probably be around 15%. In any case, the outlook is slightly less bleak for the Senator from New York.

  1. “Hillary’s Pursuit of Power”

    Watergate-Era Judiciary Chief of Staff, Jerry Zeifman:
    Hillary Clinton Fired For Lies, Unethical Behavior

    By Dan Calabrese

    As Hillary Clinton came under increasing scrutiny for her story about facing
    sniper fire in Bosnia, one question that arose was whether she has engaged
    in a pattern of lying.

    The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary
    Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate
    investigation, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back
    farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.

    Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old
    Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the
    investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who
    was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair.
    When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee
    staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three
    people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.Why?“Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the
    rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

    How could a 27-year-old House staff member do all that? She couldn’t do it by herself, but Zeifman said she was one of several individuals – including
    Marshall, special counsel John Doar and senior associate special counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum – who
    engaged in a seemingly implausible scheme to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.Why would they want to do that? Because, according to Zeifman, they feared
    putting Watergate break-in mastermind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by counsel to the president. Hunt, Zeifman said, had the
    goods on nefarious activities in the Kennedy Administration that would have made Watergate look like a day at the beach – including Kennedy’s
    purported complicity in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro.

    The actions of Hillary and her cohorts went directly against the judgment of top Democrats, up to and including then-House Majority Leader Tip O’Neill,
    that Nixon clearly had the right to counsel. Zeifman says that Hillary, along with Marshall, Nussbaum and Doar, was determined to gain enough votes on
    the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon.

    And in order to pull this off, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraudulent legal
    brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her deception.

    The brief involved precedent for representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding. When Hillary endeavored to write a legal brief
    arguing there is no right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding, Zeifman says, he told Hillary about the case of
    Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, who faced an impeachment attempt in 1970.

    “As soon as the impeachment resolutions were introduced by (then-House Minority Leader Gerald) Ford, and they were referred to the House Judiciary
    Committee, the first thing Douglas did was hire himself a lawyer,” Zeifman said.

    The Judiciary Committee allowed Douglas to keep counsel, thus establishing the precedent. Zeifman says he told Hillary that all the documents establishing this fact were in the Judiciary Committee’s public files. So what did Hillary do?

    “Hillary then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was located, which at that time was secured and inaccessible to the public,”
    Zeifman said. Hillary then proceeded to write a legal brief arguing there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel during an
    impeachment proceeding – as if the Douglas case had never occurred.

    The brief was so fraudulent and ridiculous, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had submitted it to a judge.

    Zeifman says that if Hillary, Marshall, Nussbaum and Doar had succeeded, members of the House Judiciary Committee would have also been denied
    the right to cross-examine witnesses, and denied the opportunity to even participate in the drafting of articles of impeachment against Nixon.

    Of course, Nixon’s resignation rendered the entire issue moot, ending Hillary’s career on the Judiciary Committee staff in a most undistinguished
    manner. Zeifman says he was urged by top committee members to keep a diary of everything that was happening. He did so, and still has the diary if
    anyone wants to check the veracity of his story. Certainly, he could not have known in 1974 that diary entries about a young lawyer named Hillary
    Rodman would be of interest to anyone 34 years later.

    But they show that the pattern of lies, deceit, fabrications and unethical behavior was established long ago – long before the Bosnia lie, and indeed,
    even before cattle futures, Travelgate and Whitewater – for the woman who is still asking us to make her president of the United States.

    Hillary’s Pursuit of Power

    Jerry Zeifman, a former counsel to the House Judiciary Committee for 17 years, takes you to a behind the scenes account of Hillary Clinton, in a book based on his personal experiences in dealing with her. In 1974, he had supervisory authority
    of a staff that included Hillary Rodham – who was then engaged in a variety of self-
    serving unethical practices in violation of House rules. In 1998, as consultant to a member of the Judiciary Committee that impeached President Clinton, he gained extensive personal insights into the unethical practices of Hillary Clinton in her White House “West Wing” office.

    A lifelong Democrat, Jerry Zeifman has concluded that Hillary Clinton is ethically unfit to be either a Senator or President – and if she were to become President, the last vestiges of the traditional moral authority of the party of Roosevelt, Truman and
    Johnson will be destroyed.

  2. Obama will probably net more delegates from NC than Hillary will from PA.

  3. Most of use are aware of the life and achievements of Philip Reid, the slave who supervised the bronze casting of the Statue or Freedom atop the dome of the Nation’s Capitol. All of us are aware that Barack Obama is running for the Office of the President of the United States. Some of us will be struck by the parallels between what Philip Reid achieved and what Barack Obama is perched to achieve.
