That PR firm Hickenlooper hired to enhance his presence among a crowded field to be Hillary’s vice presidential pick did him diddly squat, according to one of Hillary’s hacked emails.
The March 17 email from campaign chairman John Podesta to Hillary reveals the names of nearly 40 people who made the first cut, and Hick wasn’t one of them.
Interestingly, U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet did. He was lumped in with the menu of options that offered selections of candidates grouped by race, sex, and public position, so that Hillary could be sure of which special interest group she was pandering.
On Hillary’s menu were six African-American officials, including former Attorney General Eric Holder, and six female senators including Elizabeth Warren.
Evan Power, chairman of the Leon County Republican Party, said the racial and gender breakdowns are “what is sad about how the Democratic Party treats people.”
“In all things including delegate selection, it’s all about groups instead of finding the most qualified people regardless of race, gender or religion,” he said.
Former U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar, who gave Hillary such an enthusiastic welcome here last week, was lumped under Hispanic possibilities. Bennet was grouped with white male senators, from which he was beaten by fellow-white Senator Tim Kaine.
Michael Bloomberg made the list as a CEO, and sadly, Bernie Sanders was his own little special interest group at the bottom of the list.
It’s kind of pathetic that Hick was never in the running, but acted like he was on the short list and kept knocking on Clinton advisor doors in Washington like a rejected prom date until the announcement was made.
