Billy Shaheen has resigned:
“The Republicans are not going to give up without a fight … and one of the things they’re certainly going to jump on is his drug use,” said Mr. Shaheen, the husband of former N.H. governor Jeanne Shaheen, who is planning to run for the Senate next year.
By afternoon Thursday, however, Mr. Shaheen had resigned his post as a campaign advisor, which was accepted by the Clinton camp.
I don’t get this. It wasn’t an attack on Obama. It was the truth! Personally, I think it’s great that Obama admitted past drug use. It means he’s honest. But you know as well as I do that the Republicans will latch onto that because it’s all the moralists have. So, he resigned because he knew what was coming??? I’m not a Hillary supporter, but to fire someone (and “resigned” is just another word for fired in politics) because he or she is politically astute seems stupid to me.
