Clinton, Obama to Meet with Her Top Fundraisers

By Anne E. Kornblut
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has scheduled her first joint appearance with Sen. Barack Obama since the end of the nomination fight, officials from both camps confirmed late Tuesday.

Clinton has invited her finance committee members -- read: top fundraisers -- to a June 26 meeting in Washington, they said. It is unclear when Clinton will make her debut appearance in public, solo or with Obama, since exiting the race; she has been on vacation since then. But her finance director Jonathan Mantz has reportedly been working overtime to make the donor transition happen.

I can't vote for McCain lindagloria and NYDY who knows about the posers. At the end of the day I will probably vote for the Dem ticket. My issue is the bizarre comments from the Obama folks who have this she lost so shut up attitude. Wasn't that just the kind of attitude from the Republicans that made ALL us Dems so angry over the last few.

I just don't get it. With such a tight race (popular vote) if HRC had won, I would have been all over the idea to embrace the Obama folks with a joint ticket. The extended primary has kept the public eye on the Dem ticket. The number of Dems it energized is incredible.

I certainly wouldn't be bashing his supporters. And its not just here, its all over the web and his supporters booed her name at a rally. That's not just a bunch of Republican moles blogging as Dems.

Anyway, I have no sour grapes as to the loss. HRC mangled her campaign to some extent, and Obama was masterful.

Both campaigns have had their nasty moments, such is politics. I don't really care about Solis-Doyle. I hope she helps a Dem victory in November.

Maybe I am just to rationale for politics. I see the pros and cons of a joint ticket. I just don't see why a fellow Dem would be so angry about discussing the concept.

Where is the love Obama folks? Let's win together.

p.s. And again, no way would I vote McCain. He has been a refreshing personality over the last few years of mindless Bushie reps and senators. He is entertaining on John Stewart. But, he is still way too Republican for me.

"won't vote McCain, obviously, but maybe I'll sit home and be the whining, passive-aggressive Clintonite that the comments of many of Obama's supporters have painted those who share views as mine to be."

If you do not vote at all it will be a vote for Obama. Please do not stay home. Do vote but vote for McCain. And no, I do not want Hillary as the Vice President. If she becomes the Vice President she will not be able to run for President in 2012.

And I trust McCain more than Obama to run the war on terror. He was a war hero himself and his two sons are fighting in Iraq.

McCain '08 and Hillary '12!!!!!

I have a question for you: are you sure that these are real Obama supporters, and not Republicans disguising themselves as Obama supporters just so that they can get you to vote for their candidate?

MESSAGE FROM HRC LOYALIST TO BO HARDCORE:

Its not that Obama chose Solis-Doyle for his campaign, its that he chose her for his "running mate's chief of staff" before that person has even been announced. It is a back-handed and cowardly way of indicating Hillary is not on the short list for VP without having the eggs to just announce it himself.

It is not that we are sore losers. We get that Obama is the nominee, but we have a right to be heard - 17,535,458 48.1% 17,493,836 48.0% - RealClearPolitics.com.

Its not that we are demanding HRC be on the ticket, but we have a well-earned right to ask, and make our case for that request without being treated like the new kid at Jr. High by the Obama supporters.

And we certainly deserve at least the color of respect from the Obama campaign.

I originally was a reluctant voter, inactive supporter for Obama without Hillary on the ticket, but I was also open to be charmed by Obama's famed charisma.

However, the constant berating of anyone with a pro-Hillary view from so many of Obama's supporters has begun to repulse me further instead of bringing me closer. And the the Solis-Doyle slap!!! And that is what it is, no conspiracy or solid crafting of a campaign team, simply a clear slap.

I won't vote McCain, obviously, but maybe I'll sit home and be the whining, passive-aggressive Clintonite that the comments of many of Obama's supporters have painted those who share views as mine to be.

Obama has a chance to pull this party together and beat down the Republicans like they deserve in November, but his snarky, smart @$$ supporters and his apparent lack of respect for the rest of his party is truly disapointing.

I hope it gets better than this fellow Dems. The ball is in your Court Obama supporters. Don't throw it on the roof just to keep the rest of us from getting to play too.

Note: None of this is as disapointing as this crazy Larry Sinclair post before mine. And by disappointing I mean simply in humanity itself. Yikes!!!

Up to this point we have stayed away from the Larry Sinclair story. Larry alleges he did drugs and had consensual sex with Barack Obama. The Obama folks have gone crazy over the Sinclair allegations. Larry had a press conference today at the National Press Club. It was well attended. Shortly after the press conference ended, Larry was arrested. (I am sure this will encourage other folks to come forward and speak out (snark).) Here is Larry's statement. Decide for yourself.

Good afternoon, my name is Larry Sinclair and I am a former recreational drug user and trafficker, a convicted felon for crimes of forgery, bad checks and theft by check. I am also an American who loves this country and I cannot stay silent regarding Barack Obama knowing what I know.

Today I will discharge my obligation as a citizen to witness this knowledge to you and raise questions for others to investigate and consider. I am going to briefly describe my background, my experience with Senator Obama in 1999, what appears to me to be a coordinated effort to discredit me and finally a list of questions. After this brief statement, I will take and try to answer any reasonable questions.

Background

I am 46 years old and I currently reside in Duluth, MN. I am a US Citizen, and I have made mistakes in my lifetime. I have been convicted and served prison sentences for writing bad checks, forging checks, using stolen credit card numbers in Arizona, Florida and Colorado. These event's occurred over twenty (20) years ago between 1980 thru 1986. After going public on the internet with these claims against Senator Obama earlier this year, I became aware of a warrant out of Florida from 1986 which I have resolved and it has now been dismissed. I also have an active "Colorado Only" warrant for alleged "Theft and Forgery". I am not ignoring this warrant but am addressing it with the Court in Colorado as well as with the DA's office. I have a pending motion to dismiss this warrant which I am waiting to have calendared by the Colorado Court.

I have lived and worked under three different names. My birth name is Lawrence W. Sinclair. Later on, I had my name legally changed first to La-Rye A. Silvas, and then La-Rye Vizcarra Avila. The last two were legal name changes granted by the court in Penal County Superior Court, Florence Arizona. I legally returned to my birth name in the Fremont County District court, Canon City, Colorado in 1997. Obama Incident

I flew out of Colorado Springs, Colorado to Chicago on November 2, 1999, arriving in O'Hare early in the morning of November 3, 1999. I went to the Chicago area to attend the graduation of my god son (my best friend's son) from basic training from the Great Lakes Navy Training Center. I made reservations at the Comfort Inn and Suites in Gurnee, IL based on location to the Navy Training center. On November 5, 1999, I hired the services of Five Star Limo. I had hired them for both November 5 and November 6. On November 6, 1999, I asked the limo driver - whose name I now reveal for the first time - Paramjit Multani, if he knew anyone who would like to socialize and show me Chicago. Paramjit Multani understood that I was not looking for someone who knew Chicago and would enjoy socializing. Paramjit Multani said he knew someone who was a friend of his.

On November 6, 1999 after picking me up at the Hotel in Gurnee- and this is significant - Paramjit Multani used his cellphone to make a call. That call was made to then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama to set up an introduction between me and Senator Obama. Upon arriving at the bar and exiting the Limo, Senator Obama was standing next to Paramjit Multani and I was introduced to Senator Obama. Later that evening at a bar which I believe was called Alibis, I mention I could use a line or two to wake up. Senator Obama asked me if I was referring to "coke" and after stating I was, Obama stated he could purchase cocaine for me and then made a telephone call - and this too is significant -- from his cellphone to a presently unknown individual during which Senator Obama arranged the cocaine purchase.

Senator Obama and I then departed the bar in my limousine and proceeded to an unknown location where Senator Obama exited the limousine with two hundred fifty dollars ($250) I had given him and returned a short while later with an "eightball" of cocaine which he gave to me. I did ingest a couple of lines of cocaine, and shortly thereafter Senator Obama produced a glass cylinder pipe and packet of crack cocaine from his pants pocket and Obama smoked the crack cocaine. I performed fellatio on Senator Obama in the limousine during the time Senator Obama was smoking crack cocaine, after which I had the driver take me to the my hotel, The Comfort Suits, Gurnee, Illinois.

The following day, November 7, 1999, Senator Obama appeared at my hotel room where we again ingested cocaine and I again performed fellatio on Senator Obama. Significantly, both the driver's telephone call to Senator Obama and his call to the drug dealer should appear on the driver's and Senator Obama's cellphone billing statements. Fall 2007

In September 2007 I contacted the Presidential Campaign of Barack H. Obama, to request solely that Senator Obama publicly correct his stated drug use record to reflect his use of crack cocaine with me in November 1999. When I made that first contact I left with the Presidential Campaign of Senator Barack H. Obama a telephone number for the campaign to return my call. The first number I provided was a Texas cell phone number. From the period of Labor day weekend 2007 through November 18, 2007 I did rovide a total of four (4) different call back numbers to the Obama campaign, as I had moved and had changed the numbers to reflect locally my place of residence at the time. In late September to early October 2007, I received a call from a male who identified himself as a "Mr. Young" stating he was calling in regards to calls I had made to the Obama campaign. This first call was in fact an attempt by "Mr. Young" to obtained from me the identities of anyone I had contacted concerning my 1999 allegations against Senator Obama. This first called shocked me in that this "Mr. Young" asked me why I had not asked Senator Obama to disclose the sexual encounters I had with Mr. Obama in 1999. I was shocked as I had never mentioned to the campaign or anyone working for the campaign any sexual encounters as my call was prompted by drug allegations only. The call ended with "Mr. Young" stating I would hear from someone in a few days.

In mid to late October 2007, I received a second call from this "Mr. Young" at which time I clearly became aware that this individual was personally involved with Senator Obama rather than just an employee of his campaign. The tone of the conversation had a sexual nature. "Mr. Young" did not once advise me how he obtained my phone number which by this time had now changed to a Delaware number.

In late October 2007, I received a text message from the gentleman identified as "Mr. Young" in which he stated he was intimately involved with Senator Obama and that Obama was discussing with him and his pastor how to publicly acknowledge Senator Obama's drug use in 1999 and that Obama wanted to be sure I had not discussed the sexual encounters or drug incidents with any media at that time.

In mid to late November 2007, in another text message from "Mr. Young" , he advised me that Senator Obama will publicly correct his statement as to he last time he used drugs and I did not need to concern myself with publicly disclosing it myself. The last contact I had with "Mr. Young" was in early December 2007 when he made it clear to me that Senator Obama had no intentions of publicly acknowledging his 1999 use of crack cocaine and that "Mr. Young" was in fact doing nothing more than milking information from me for Senator Obama's use.

I later learned that a Donald Young was the choir director of Reverend Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ - Obama's now-former church -- and was openly a homosexual. I also learned that he was murdered on December 23, 2007. I have cooperated with the Chicago Police Department in this matter by providing them the telephone numbers I was using during the fall of 2007 and I release them now publically in the hope that someone may be able to connect the dots between these telephone numbers and Mr. Young. Those numbers are: 954-758-1105; 956-758-1885; 956-758-8002; 302-685-7175; 612-466-1043. 2008

In what I now realize was a naive and un-counseled decision, I posted in January 2008 a video on YouTube.com where I related the above information regarding my liaisons with Senator Obama in 1999. The response was overwhelming and I quickly became the recipient of what in hindsight appears to have been a coordinated attack on my character with ever increasing falsehoods circulating on the internet.

In response I agreed to take a polygraph test from Whitehouse.com. The results of that test have been partially revealed to the end of labeling me a liar and taken as gospel by all. I would like to make the following comments about that polygraph test. First, I have been subsequently advised that Whitehouse.com was a website dedicated to anti-Clinton pornography until earlier this year. Second, I have now come to understand that lie detectors are junk science at best which is why courts of law refuse to use them. Third, a review of the results by George W. Maschke, Ph.D. of AntiPolygraph.org raises serious questions about the legitimacy of the examination. Indeed, overlooked by almost everyone is that hitehouse.com's own examiner, Dr. Gordon Barland, observed that on the drug question regarding Senator Obama that the computerized score found that there was less than a 1% probability of deception by me. That's about as high a passing score as one can possibly attain.

Finally, in February 2008 I was told anonymously that Dan Parisi of Whitehouse.com received $750,000 from the Obama campaign through AKR Media to organize an effort to publically discredit me. When I confronted Dan Parisi with this allegation, he did not deny it but instead withdrew the second exonerating polygraph report of Dr. Gordon Barland, failed to post the video of my polygraph as he and Whitehouse.com promised they would do, and even removed posts from their web site altogether, claiming that they had "had enough of the attacks by Sinclair's supporters and Sinclair himself."

The polygraph results - as misrepresented - were immediately seized upon by the blogger community and I became the subject of vicious lies about me. I was forced to file a lawsuit in an attempt to stop those lies about me that have been circulating. That lawsuit sought to obtain the proof of what I was saying about my contact with Senator Obama through subpoenas for the identities of the anonymous bloggers so they could be linked to the Obama campaign and relevant records of the cellphone companies to prove the truth of my allegations. To date, though the lawsuit is now over ninety days old, Judge Kennedy has refused to permit the suit to move forward so this evidence may be obtained. Conclusion

In sum, you can discredit my story and then make your decision on who should be the next President of the United States. The burden is now off me as I have told my story without the distortions that have been intentionally heaped on me in what my lawyer tells me is an ad hominem attack - shoot the messenger so you don't have to hear the message he is bringing. I am now done. It is for others to find the corroborating evidence of my story by locating the limousine driver - Paramjit Multani - and the telephone numbers related to Donald Young and/or Senator Obama. I leave you with these questions that I have asked of Senator Obama but which he - who wants to be the next President of the United States - has refused to answer:

1. Why won't Senator Obama provide his cellphone numbers and telephone records for all his personal and official cell phones held by him for the time period of November 3, 1999 thru November 8, 1999, when we met?

2. Why won't Senator Obama provide his cellphone numbers and telephone records for all his personal and official cell phones held by Senator Obama or September 2007 - December 23, 2008, the murder of Donald Young?

3. Why won't Senator Obama provide all email communication both personal and campaign related to and/or from AKP Message & Media from January 18, 2008 through February 29, 2008 for Senator Obama, David Axelrod and David Plouffe?

4. Why won't Senator Obama provide proof of all payments made from AKP Message & Media, Obama for America, David Axelrod, David Plouffe, and Senator Obama's accounts for the period of January 18, 2008 through February 29, 2008?

On my website - larrysinclair.org - you will find the documents that I have referred to in this statement. A copy of the home page for that website is attached. Thank you for your time and attention this afternoon and I will now take any questions.

Glenn's comment is the most intelligent. We need to have a Democrat back in the White House. Can we stop the pettiness from some of the HRC supporters - it just sounds like sour grapes.

Posted by: Mary Ann | June 18, 2008 6:11 PM

Aspects of this blog is truly troubling if you are a Democrat like I am. Obama and Hillary voted the same on the many issues before them. Because of the race, Hillary supporters are willing to let John McCain win this election. Where is the sense of caring for the country?Does this all boil down to personality? One of the reasons why Republicans have won more of the elections is because Democrats emote more than they reason! Republicans stick to their talking points and democrats battle over anthills! I was an Edward's supporter and my guy lost but I find the the Hillary supporters turning this into a protest, to be troubling and I say shameful. The Democratic should they allow McCain to win is a farce. Do women also believe that another woman will get a chance if they redraw and allow a favored Democrat to lose! It would set the womens movement back decades. Remember, protest works both ways and it is best to be adult about the need to have Democrats win.

Posted by: sawargos | June 18, 2008 2:19 PM

I heard on the news today, the reason for this special meeting is because the Obama group were a little aloof with some of Clintons supporters last week. HRC is trying to mend the fence. Give her a break.

Posted by: concerned08 | June 18, 2008 2:00 PM

Eighteen months of non-stop campaigning and you're accusing her of NOT taking a vacation and instead using the time to plot and meet with lawyers? Just how much energy do you think a 60 year old woman has? Puleeeese. Get a life.

Posted by: getoverit | June 18, 2008 1:07 PM

This fundraising meeting sounds to me like the Clintons have found a way to funnel funds through Obama to pay down their campaign debt.

I agree with the other post that wondered if the Clintons were actually on vacation, or plotting something. I think they have just spent a fair amount of time with attorneys, drafting a plan to work the finances and make her look good in the process. I still don't think they can arm-twist him into the VP selection, but they will take everything they can get to offset their debt and boost her standing in the Democratic party. Time will tell.

Sorry to accuse you Susan! Before, I couldn't even make it past the first page of the site to see the farce... now I see.

My apologies.

Just a quick note on Hillary vacation - I don't trust the Clintons. I think they are planning behind the scene to force Obama's hand to pick her as VP or upstage him during convention or somehow make him unelectable such that she gets nominated come convention time. I just don't trust that Clintons are going to sit back and take a vacation. They are conniving creatures!

Posted by: Gary | June 18, 2008 11:15 AM

After checking the "womenforjohnmccain" site, I found it interesting that the following McCain positions were listed under Choice. Any truth to all or some of these?

On McCain:

+Supports repealing Roe v. Wade. (May 2007)

+Voted YES on barring Health and Human Services funding to medical clinics for low-income women that perform abortions. (Oct 2007)

+Voted YES on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions. (Jul 2006)

+Voted NO on $100M to reduce teen pregnancy by education & contraceptives. (Mar 2005)

+Voted YES on criminal penalty for harming unborn fetus. (Mar 2004)

+Voted YES on banning "dilate and extract" abortions. (Mar 2003)

+Voted YES on maintaining ban on abortions at clinics on military bases. (Jun 2000)

+Voted YES on banning "dilate and extract" abortions. (Oct 1999)

+Rated 0% by National Abortion Rights Action League.

+Rated 0% by Planned Parenthood.

+Despite his extreme voting record, 51 percent of women voters in battleground states have no idea what John McCain's positions are on women's reproductive health issues.

+Forty-nine percent of women currently backing McCain express pro-choice views, and 46 percent of women supporting McCain over Obama/Clinton want to see Roe v. Wade upheld.

+In McCain-Obama/McCain-Clinton matchups, 36 percent and 38 percent, respectively, of pro-choice McCain supporters say they are less likely to vote for McCain when told that he opposes Roe v. Wade.

I think that the Clinton team has been refusing to fund raise for Obama so she is being forced to shake them down. He wants 2,300 from each of them and then some financial fund raising support. Hope they call in sick. Obama is a fund raising guru, he doesn't need them.

Posted by: Lynn E | June 18, 2008 10:43 AM

Barbara: The site, like my comments are a farce. I would never vote for McCain, and if you go back and read the site again, you will see it is a joke.

Sorry to have frightened you.

Posted by: Susan | June 18, 2008 10:25 AM

There are a lot of bored Republican kiddies here pretending to be insulting Obama supporters and offended Hillary supporters switching to McCain.

Face it kids, the truly offensive and insulting thing in America today is the Republican Party. That's why you have to make up fictional supporters on sites that allow anonymous posts. Real supporters are pretty thin on the ground.

Posted by: drossless | June 18, 2008 10:14 AM

I checked out the website http://www.womenforjohnmccain.com/ and it's funny but also scary. This is the man that Hillary said was ready to lead the country (next to herself) and this is the man that some Hillary-supporters think is better than Obama. It would also be funny if it didn't mean we might actually have to live in a McCain Presidency.

Please think about this before you make that important choice in November. For me, Barack Obama is best for America but even if I wasn't sure about Barck, I would be very, very careful before I ever voted for John McCain.

In the FIRST PARAGRAPH of the website listed above says that George W. Bush is our nations greatest President.

In the SECOND PARAGRAPH it claims that a cancelled McCain fundraiser was a "shame" because the "liberal" media is having a cow over this publicly uttered joke told by the sponsor and host of the event, Clayton Williams: "Rape is like the weather - as long as it's inevitable, you might as well lie back and enjoy it."

In the FOURTH PARAGRAPH it calls this joke "a common-sense observation about a trivial 'crime' like rape"

The LAST PARAGRAPH (ONlY 5 in total) says that McCain has resheduled the event, and "sadly, Mr. Williams will not be in attendance at the rescheduled event"
...........

ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? This convinced Susan to vote for McCain, and convinced her enough to promote it to other women???

Honor and truth are more important than Barack Obama and the Democratic party and Media. Hence, either Hillary Clinton or McCain for President 2008.

These folks are reported to be demanding help in retiring Clinton´s campaign debt.

Although this is a reasonable expectation, they do need to remember a few things:

1. They, and she, said some despicable things about Obama, beyond the bounds of ordinary political campaigns. Clinton´s comment that McCain was prepared and Obama was not is out of bounds. Her supporters have said far far worse, and even now some of them are leading a deplorable personal attack on Michelle Obama.

2. Thus,a request for money to retire Clinton´´s debt will anger many Obama supporters.

Clinton and her supporters will have to make genuine peace overtures (not an article in New York magazine about how she´s certain Obama will lose) before they can realistically expect any help.

Hillary is a dirty politician and a sore loser. I refuse to support anyone who relies on mudslinging and deception to get their votes. The only person who was worse than Hillary was Mitt Romney this election. In other words, Hillary was behaving like a Republican.

Dr. Bob-

What is the matter with you? Can you tell me what it is about HRC that you hate so much- specifically, no BS generalizations.

I hope Obama steals all her fundraisers from underneath her nose so that we will NEVER have to deal will Hillary and all of her disgruntled supporters again.

About time they worked the circuit together. But when does the first truly public appearance come? And will Hillary be steamed that she got booed by Obama's posse in Detroit?
