Clintons Receive As Much Loyalty as They Gave

Meaning not much at all.

This may be the latest, most surest sign that party insiders are like rats jumping off the SS Shrillary:

The man who managed Bill Clinton's winning 1992 presidential campaign endorsed Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) for president this afternoon, snubbing Clinton's wife, Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) in the process.

David Wilhelm, a former Democratic National Committee chairman who now works as a venture capitalist in Ohio, said Obama's momentum, his message, the quality of his campaign and his potential to command a "broad coalition" as president "that can make change a reality" all contributed to the decision to endorse.
Even Democrat suck-up Ron Fournier is taking his whacks while Bubba and Hill are down:

For years, Bill and Hillary Clinton treated the Democratic National Committee and party activists as extensions of their White House ambitions, pawns in a game of success and survival. She may pay a high price for their selfishness soon.

Top Democrats, including some inside Hillary Clinton's campaign, say many party leaders _ the so-called superdelegates _ won't hesitate to ditch the former New York senator for Barack Obama if her political problems persist. Their loyalty to the first couple is built on shaky ground.
Even Carville is wavering and for a man who owes everything to come out and say "this thing is done" is Hillary fails to win both Ohio and Texas. Note the absence of the word or.

Plus Hill is channeling the late Ann Richards so things aren't going quite so well now.
