Hillary Losng Folks Left and Right

Well another one bites the dust. Mark Penn, the pollster and senior strategist for Hillary Clinton's, presidential bid, left the campaign Sunday after it was disclosed he met with representatives of the Colombian government to help promote a free trade agreement Clinton opposes.

See the way I look at it is when you are digging for dirt on other people, it is important to look in your own front yard too. s. Penn later issued a statement apologizing for the meeting, calling it an "error in judgment."

"Senator Clinton was disappointed that meetings with Colombians had occurred. She is a strong opponent of the trade deal," said a Clinton campaign official speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not given authority to speak publicly. "Over the course of the weekend he recognized he needed to step aside as chief stratey. This trade deal probably ended a very tight relationship between the Clintons and Penn. As we know in the midst of adversity it is important to separate yourself negative actions.
