Solis Doyle Opens Up About Move to Obama

By Anne E. Kornblut
CHICAGO -- Despite her rough departure from the Clinton campaign during the primaries, former campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle said on Wednesday that she still considers Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton a friend -- even after going to work for Sen. Barack Obama.

Solis Doyle said she played phone tag with Clinton as she tried to inform her about her new position as chief of staff to Obama's future vice presidential nominee. In an interview with the Associated Press, Solis Doyle said she wound up sending Clinton an e-mail with the news.

"She's a friend of mine and I just wanted to, both on a personal and professional level, let her know what I was doing and make sure that she was, you know, good with it. And she was," the AP quoted her as saying.

Solis Doyle, a Chicago native whose brother is a city alderman, is working from campaign headquarters after moving her family to Chicago for the duration of the campaign. Her move to Obama -- especially in a role so closely tied to the vice presidential pick -- provoked a negative reaction from some Clinton supporters who viewed it as a sign the former candidate is not even being considered.

Solis Doyle and Clinton have not spoken much since she was let go -- a point she conceded in the interview, in which she said she had not had a chance to "really, really talk" with Clinton since the primaries.

Clinton and Solis Doyle had a close friendship until parting ways during the campaign. Solis Doyle said she understood the hard feelings from some people who remain loyal solely to Clinton. "I understand the, you know, deep emotion and passion, absolutely. She's my friend and I threw everything into her campaign that I could possibly throw into it," Solis Doyle said. "But as heartbreaking as it was, she lost. And now it's time, for the good of our country and for the good of my kids, to move on and get Barack Obama elected."

Solis Doyle "But heartbreaking as it was, she lost. And now it's time, for the good of our Country and for the good of my kids, to move on and get Barack Obama elected." Solis, you are the one of Judas, Hillary didn't lose, you made her lose, don't lie to us. Why you worked for Hillary if she is not good for the Country and for your kids for decades? You managed this Primary election, changed your mind in middle of campaign, now you said move on and get Obama elected, I don't think so you are not Hillary's friend, you are the treacherous betrayer, so shut up and go work for liar. You are worse than Judas Richardson. "Sleep with an enemy".

Common Sense: Let me parse your logic here:

The candidate (McCain) who left his crippled wife and 3 children to marry an heiress worth over $100 million dollars, with whom he owns 11 houses, is the "in touch" everyman; the candidate (Obama) who came from a broken home to boot strap his way to where he is today is "elite."


to Edsbowlingshoes..Good post! It's difficult to understand why the PUMA who are disappointed about Hillary would vote for McCain. McCain does not favor women. He voted against equal wages. Obama called a female reporter "sweetie" and media put him down. McCain, peeved because his current wife playfully made a remark about his hair, said (in public) "at least I don't put on makeup and look like a trollop, you c--t." I certainly would prefer to be called "sweetie". It's amazing that these unhappy women would vote for a man that has shown such disrespect for women.

I believe Solis helped Hillary lose, just as several of her co-workers did. They helped write down Hillary's speeches and that, I believe, is how some discrepancies slipped in. These workers sold out.

Solis Doyle is a traitor. It has been said that just days before the Iowa caucus, Doyle shut down the Iowa Clinton office to "watch videos" all day long. Wow. Does THAT sound like a campaign manager who wanted her "candidate" Hillary Clinton to win? I think NOT!

Solis Doyle was the rat on the Clinton ship. Her personal and family ties (her brother is a Chicago alderman Danny Solis) and Doyle herself worked for corrupt Chicago Mayor Daley, and Doyle has been "close friends with Obama campaign manager David Axelrod for nearly 20 years) to Chicago, arguably the most toxic political sewer in the nation where Patty Solis Doyle and Barack Obama swim with the filthy rats who inhabit it.

Just say NO to Barack Obama who is unqualified and unelectable. The MEDIA will NOT decide this election, the people WILL! The Obamarama has been a media driven illusion.

The DNC must be held accountable for their failure to denounced the rampant sexism, racism, classism and voter disenfranchisement continually interjected into this 2008 campaign debacle by Barack Obama, his campaign, his nasty supporters and ALL media! IN fact, the DNC is complicit in disenfranchising voters. To vote for Obama is to condone what they have done. DON'T DO IT!

It's Hillary (the DNC can STILL nominate HIllary next and month and they should) the DNC should open up the convention to place BOTH Hillary and Obama in nomination, allow speeches, allow ballots, allow ALL votes to be cast and counted! NOW, THAT would be a real democratic process!

Hillary has already won the popular vote, winning MORE votes than ANY candidate of ANY party in history! Now, let's give long overdue credit where it's due! Hillary remains the most qualified and most electable candidate. Let's demand the DNC open up this convention process! Call the DNC, write the DNC, call the delegates, write the delegates, write letters to the editor, call in to tv and radio shows. Get active. If we fail to speak out now, WHEN?

"You MUST do the thing which you think you cannot do" Eleanor Roosevelt

If the Dems foolishly nominate Obama, put your country first and party second and vote for John McCain 08 and Hillary 2012!

Hey Ruth -

George W. Bush was the imposter. Barack Obama is the real one. And the words he is speaking are real too. Have you been listening? Somehow I doubt it - rumors and scandal are so much more fun than the facts.
The bible doesn't menton anything about a womans right to choose what happens to her body, but I do know McCain would like to set us back about 60 years.
I also know McCain, a POW as we certainly all know, voted AGAINST labeling waterboarding as torture and voted AGAINST the GI Bill - two things he was FOR before he became the nominee.
I also know that several miltary people are concerned about his mental stability and irrational temper. Scary? I think so.
I also know he voted agaist equal pay for women.
So, Ruth, if you don't think Obama is THE ONE, just don't vote,okay? Because McCain is not going help us in any way to get out of the hole we are in. He will only dig us deeper.
Oh,and Ruth, did you know that the Euro is now worth almost twice the value of the dollar? Just a fact I'd like to share with some of the "underinformed" voters out there.
PUMAS- GET REAL!! If you were ever really a Democrat, you know that Obama and Hillary share very similar ideals, just as Bush and McCain do.

Patti Doyle is what I call a woman. She supported Hill until she was fired,because Penn wanted to run everything. If Hill would have won the nomination she would still be supporting her. Not like these stupid Hill female supporters who will go with Mcsame because they want revenge.Maybe that is another reason she was fired. She made Hill look bad, because Hill surely was no lady when she was campaigning.

There's a great deal of hateful nonsense being spewed here. Some observations:

1) To you testosterone-poisoned knuckle-dragging Neanderthals out there: Misogynist crap-slinging doesn't help anyone, so stow it. While there may be some few women whose identification with Hillary is so strong that they won't support Obama, most women ARE rational. They will clearly perceive that if they care about Hillary's political agenda, voting for Obama is really the only sensible choice, given that HRC and BHO agree on SO many things . . .

2) To the disaffected PUMAs out there: Get a life and get over your disappointment and stop reinforcing the stereotype (yes, you know which one . . .). Protesting by not voting or (worse) voting for McCain will elect McCain. If you've supported Hillary, this would be a completely irrational and counterproductive action.

3) To all who care about the future of the country: Why would you want to perpetuate a miserably-failed and horribly misguided administration. While John McCain and Dubya don't look much alike or have similar personal styles, their political agendas are very much cut out of the same cloth, particularly as McCain has swung to the right to consolidate his conservative base. More of this we don't need.

Think, people, think.

Wow. I wasn't a Hillary Clinton advocate, but I don't see any reason for all this hysterical gynephobic invective directed toward her supporters...it isn't called for, and it doesn't help. The "cut-off-our-nose-to-spite-our-face" mentality of particularly bitter Clinton fans isn't very reasonable, either.

But then, if I were a Neocon, I'd be doing my best to foment as much division as I could among McBush's opposition...for instance by coming onto comment boards pretending to be, alternatively, an hysterical mysogynist Hillary Clinton critic, or a vindictive, unreasonable Clinton fanatic. Maybe that explains a lot of this otherwise pointless venom.

These diehard Hillary supporters are women on a mission without a cause. They are a disgrace to womanhood as a whole. How many men have watched and saw their candidate not win an election and MAN UP? I have never heard of an election that the loser's followers or supporters demand so much from the winner. Men have ran in elections and never did one remain and took it to the degree that Hillary Clinton did even in light of the facts that it was impossible for her to win, she ran her campaign in debt and deceived her followers that she had a chance by continually spinning the numbers, moving the goal post for victory that had no reality or rhyme or reason, using dirty politics and then holler foul and projected her tactics unto Obama that stuck for her supporters were already drunk on kool-aid. And to this day, some still think this is about them when it was all about Hillary and her career ambition. She wanted to USE her supporters as a bargaining chip and if Obama ever did that I personally would have been insulted for since when was this just about him/her..it is about the direction of the country and we had enough of a president that USED the American people as pawns to accomplish their political ends. These "sore loser girls" (for they are not acting like real woman with dignity) need to turn in their woman's card and go back to the playground and build sand boxes.

Because, as Hillary put it, they are hard working "white" people. They are most likely just as racist as her.
Hillary divided the races with her bigoted campaign. Now there are a bunch of angry, middle aged white women who are nuts for Hillary.
I just don't get it, she will be going to trial soon for misdeeds covered up during her grab for the nomination, she drove a hate filled campaign, she just plain LIED about being under fire in Iraq, her husband cheats on her, NOT a stable marriage, and she lost fair and square.

LOTS of people don't like her, but the PUMA Hillary Psychos just can't seem to move on.
They would rather vote for a war monger than a black man who is intelligent, has a stable family, tries to bring the races together and was a complete gentleman to Hillary's complete bit$$yness.
It's sad really.

PUMA Hillary Pschos, please try to move on or at least think straight and not let your bigotry, anger and hate take this country down the horrible road of McSame or even McWorse.

An opportunist. Not to be trusted. Pathetic. Both the new hire and her candidate.

For those of you sheeple supporting B.O., it is evident you are by and large misinformed about the so-called "Democratic process" that has occurred. Most of you don't even know that Obama was not yet even in office to vote AGAINST the war. He would have voted with Bush like most Democrats did.

We need a responsible leader who can end this war in the best way possible, and between the two is McCain (that is, IF Obama gets nominated).

Another thing, Gore, Kerry, Dukakis all polled much higher than Obama at this time against their opponent and you know what happened to all of them. You can just go ahead and add him to the heap.

Gee, those corporate investors lost millions in their attempt to buy the White House with puppet Obama. They are the same ones who have screwed up our economy. Wake up sheeple and lay off the Kool-Aid!

Anyway, I suspect there are more closeted Democrats out there than you can imagine who are voting Republican this year. Hey, we don't have much of a choice. Since I've been pretty vocal about my support of McCain, I hear whispers from people planning to jump ship all the time, but most don't have the balls to even tell their spouses. All my family and friends are life-long Democrats. I'd say at least 30 percent are NOT voting for Obama for a variety of reasons. That's more than enough to guarantee McCain as our next Commander-in-Chief.

The people being traitors line of logic has always seemed weak to me. Are people supposed to follow Hillary no matter what? Isn't that blind loyalty what led so many people in high positions to just go along with Bush/Cheney/Rove (alberto gonzalez being the prime example).

To HRC Supporters:

At first I thought the nasty back and forth stuff was sincere, high emotion, but the really creepy junk? It's just rethug trolls trying to stir up trouble between Democrats. So what else is new? Divide and conquer is a VERY old game that the economic/ power elites have excelled at for millennia.

And, the net and blogs with their anonymous opportunity to spew anything seems to bring out all kinds.

As an Obama supporter who was a local activist, I never ran into ANY actual Obama supporters who were anything, but also rather supportive of Hillary too. If Hillary had won, I would be enthusiastically supporting her as our nominee. She is a fine stateswoman and leader.

I didn't like how many in the MSM were dismissive, racist and sexist to both the Democratic front runners. BUT, I didn't really expect white male power to just role over and suddenly play nice nice, either. I'm frankly exceedingly releived that there weren't any overt acts of violence; I know the hate-filled loonies are out there.)

I'm sorry many of you were hurt and some are still hurting. Democrats fall in love and Republicans fall in line. I remember how badly it hurt when Gore and Kerry lost. I really cried, especially when Kerry lost. Lord, I hate this horrible war.

As a mother of a 13 year old boy, I am frankly scared about the prospect of McCain winning. If you can't bring yourself to vote for Obama, could I please ask you to just not vote for McCain?

You see, with McCain, I'm really scared that he'll bomb, bomb, bomb Iran, and he'll have to re-instate the draft to cover Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan (if not Pakistan, too). Now, I know that neither Obama or Hillary would stupidly rush into another war, but McCain?

So, for all the children, here and in those other countries, I am asking you to please consider just not voting for McCain if your heart will not allow you to support Obama.

Thank you and best wishes,

The appointment of PSD as the chief of staff of the yet unnamed VP nominee was a foolish and insulting poke in the collective eyes of Clinton and her supporters. If PSD wanted to work for Sen. Obama and he wanted to hire her, he could have done so by putting her in any other position without making this provocative and unnecessary gesture (as in the middle finger). Recent polls indicate that 30% of former Clinton voters are still not planning to vote for Sen. Obama in November. The gratuitous insult of the PSD appointment is one of many reasons for their opinion. I don't happen to be one of them. I'm mad as hell that Sen. Obama is the Democratic nominee as a result of a biased media and an incompetent Party leadership, but I'm not willing to shoot myself in the foot because of it. However, I am very sympathetic to the Clinton supporters who are willing pay the price of indulging their anger. If Sen. Obama loses in November--as I fear he will--he has only himself to blame for this pointless insult and his lurch to the right, abandoning his bogus principles claimed during the primary race. Sen. Obama is a fraud, but he is the Democrat's fraud.

Solis Doyle got fired, in a fairly direct, scapegoating way, after Super Tuesday. Months later, after Hillary conceded, she got hired by the Obama campaign. In the interim she was unemployed, although presumably she was interviewing for that job.

So how the heck does that add up to Judas, Benedict Arnold, traitor, evil, and so on?

You people who say this sort of thing are really giving Hillary Clinton and her campaign a bad name. Come on, the Clinton organization wasn't the Mafia! People could lose a job there and take a job somewhere else, perfectly legitimately. I think you should look at what an ugly picture you are painting of Clinton, who was a normal, professional candidate and of her staff.

It would be different if Solis Doyle was "lured away" from a job with Clinton and much missed. But that's not what happened.

"But as heartbreaking as it was, she lost"

No, Patti. She didn't lose while you were having backdoor talks with the Obama campaign people.

You were apparently a "close friend" of Sen. Clinton. For how long? Lois Romano in an article an year ago, said "Patti Solis Doyle, 41, Clinton's very first hire in 1991, now oversees the national campaign."

Romano also wrote - "When Beltway operatives privately question whether Solis Doyle has the management experience to run a presidential campaign, Hillaryland scoffs. "Patti is her single most important political adviser now," says Ickes. "She understands Hillary's dynamics, her rhythms, what will fly with her, what won't, how to best (to) structure a schedule that plays to her energy levels.""

Then, in a pique because you were edged out as the campaign was not faring as expected, you engage in talks with her opposition team. At the time you were doing this, the difference between the two candidates was not substantial; and it is not even now.

One wonders what effect any information you were passing on to them, had on Clinton's campaign.

If I were a "single most important political adviser", I wouldn't bolt to the other team, just because what I was doing is not working out for the team. I would gladly stand aside and cheer for the team. It is the success of the team that is the goal, not the career advancement of one Patti Solis Doyle.

For the Obama people reading this, this particular mail has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with the Obama campaign. Think of it this way. How would you feel if one of the important members of the Obama campaign is replaced, and so engages in talks with the Clinton campaign, while pretending to be still with Obama.

That's the issue here. And Patti Solis Doyle behaved like a Judas, like a Benedict Arnold, worse than a Bill Richardson.

Induced panic by Hillary's supporters and Barack's enemies

Several people thought to be potential Democratic Vice-Presidential candidates have dropped off the list and there is an increasing tendency in the press to suggest they will all drop off and Barack will be forced to surrender to Hillary. A post in the generally conservative RealClearPolitics cites the withdrawals of Ohio Governor Ted Strickland, Rhode Island Senator Jack Reed and Virginians Senator Jim Webb and Senate candidate Mark Warner to suggest Barack may have no choice but to pick Hillary. The post concludes by saying "[w]ith Obama's diminishing short list, let's make a prediction: Despite the denials all around, Hillary Clinton as VP is an idea that I think has weathered the tumultuous month following her defeat. Polls show Democratic voters still like the idea and Clinton's electoral strengths certainly haven't lessened any...an Obama/Clinton ticket is very much a possibility."

This mostly nonsense. First, of the four contenders who dropped out, only one was ever a serious VP possibility. Ted Strickland and Jack Reed looked good on paper, but as Michael Barone suggested, Strickland's resume is very thin and he apparently judged himself to be unqualified. Reed's military background made him attractive to a few (including yours truly) but he was not being formally vetted by the Obama campaign, rather he was a temporary media celebrity after it was announced that he was going to accompany Obama on an upcoming trip to Iraq. The reality is the low key Reed doesn't desire the job and it was never seriously in offing. Mark Warner is already a candidate for the Senate in Virginia. He is the prohibitive favorite to win the Senate race at the moment, a race that might be much more in doubt if he suddenly wasn't the Democratic candidate. It is doubtful the Senate Democrats want to give up what looks like a sure pickup when Obama has plenty of other choices for VP. The one who was apparently going to be vetted but dropped out was Webb. Most of the speculation suggested Webb would not have wanted his many non-politically correct statements of the past open to re-examination. Webb, who changed parties to Democrat only a few years ago, at one time suggested women had no business in the military and made statements that some took as sympathy for the Confederate cause in the Civil War.

Even these eliminations still leave Biden, Edwards, Richardson, Bayh and a host of others. Of course, Hillary is on the list but only because some of her supporters and Obama's enemies feel she is owed it or he is stuck with her, not because she is a good choice.

FUTURE NEWS SYNDICATE

Lost Tribe Of Hillary Holdouts Found

- BREAKING NEWS -

The first contact in several years with remnants of a holdout band of Hillary Clinton supporters took place yesterday, with a helicopter flyover identifying the handful of survivors. Unwilling to concede that the 2008 Democratic presidential primary had been fairly conducted, the hardy but dwindling tribe became increasingly isolated during the Obama/Leahy administrations, eschewing television and rumored to be surviving only on moss, pant suit juice and the occasional squirrel.

Following the merger of the Republican and Democratic Parties and repeal of the 22nd Amendment in 2015 which allowed Beloved Leader Obama's election to a third term by an unprecedented Electoral College vote of 538 - 0, the tribe disappeared and has not been heard from for several years. Until this sighting, the continued existence of the "Hillarians" was doubted and their story had passed into the realm of urban legend.

Then when it became obvious that no one was listening to his sensible proposals, I switched to Hillary because my wife told me to. That was bad enough, but then SHE loses to a BLACK guy! I knew I should not have relied on a skirt to do a man's job. That's why I switched to McCain.

Obama engaged in a campaign of political sniping. He is the liberal (and we're not even sure about that) version of Bush. Anyone who challenges Obama is immediately attacked and called a racist. His race-bullying was absolutely ridiculous. If the media had actual done some real reporting instead of being caught up in the novelty of a "different" candidate, Hillary would've easily won the campaign. Even in the latter stages, the majority of Americans believed Clinton would do a better job. Obama brings up memories of Caligula. Be careful of attacking him, you will also be called a racist and thrown under the bus. Obama is the new politics of fear.

Hillary lost because:

1) she had no policy position advantage, they were the same but he had her on iraq

2) he had more charisma and personal appeal to the voters (just like reagan, bill, bush)

3) with sniper-gate etc. she ran a mediocre campaign

Thatcher got elected in England. Hillary could have been elected here. But Obama won fair and square.

If people want to be irrational... and want revenge... just remember that you are reinforcing every bad stereotype that men have about women. do you think a guy is going to hire a woman for his small business if he thinks that women are irrational and can't handle a moderate level of conflict without losing it and wanting revenge forever?

McCain is listed as the one of the single most conservative members of Congress; he's voted with Bush 95% of the time; he has a ZERO rating from the League of Conservation Voters; he was one of the prime supporters of the Iraq War debacle (and still pushes for war with Iran); he's supported the countless infringements on our privacy that Bush has pushed for - the list goes on and on. WOW - what a maverick!!!!!!!!!

This remarkable unleashing of deep Democratic energies went hand in hand with clever GOP Republican efforts to subvert the will of the American People, whether by overt corruption or covert manipulation. This corruption or manipulation resulted from the widespread market activity that was incompatible with the good of the American Public. American Citizens were well aware that the voices of the People could be offset by powerful GOP Republican market elites bending the system to serve the interests of the few. The economic power of the GOP Republicans were recognized to be the primary source of Wall Street speculators' corruptions.

Democratic dialogue was motivated by opposition to the market-driven greedy GOP Republicans obsessed with obscene quantity of moneymaking with little regard for the quality of the Public's Democracy. Democratic love of wisdom was contrasted sharply against the GOP Republicans love of money.

Impeach the defunct GOP Republican Party of Wall Street Super Rich Thieves for milking our country the way wolves milk cows. America deserves intelligent and honest leadership demonstrated by scholars who love America, Americans and Our Freedom. America the Beautiful belongs to All Americans and will no longer be the plaything of Wall Street Super Rich GOP Republicans wolves.
