The scoop from Washington

Hillary Rodham Clinton birthday Sunday; in Chicago for AIPAC speech, Obama fund-raiser

| 12 Comments

WASHINGTON--Happy birthday Sunday to Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton, born at Chicago's Edgewater Hospital on October 26, 1947.

Clinton will spend part of her 61st birthday in Chicago, keynoting an AIPAC conference (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee) and stopping at the Standard Club for an Obama Victory Fund brunch with a price tag from $1,000 to $5,000. The expected $250,000 haul is expected to yield some debt reduction for Clinton. Clinton's allies hope President Obama at some point makes some time to do some serious Clinton fund-raising to help erase her debt. Clinton's team, keeping count, has raised more than $8 million for Obama's general election campaign.

Happy Birthday! Sen. Clinton.

Clinton is a SAINT, I wouldn't campaign for Obama if I were her.

Happy Birthday Hillary. You remain, in my judgment, the best qualified to be our President in these perilous times. As a lifelong DNC card carrying Democrat, I still will not forgive the party that robbed you of the nomination without a fair count and I will be voting for John McCain this fall- my 1st vote ever for a Republican.
May God bless you with the very best in life !

BTW, I am neither poor, female, old etc (the press caricature of your supporter ) !!

Please extend my birthday wishes to my dream president of USA.May your 61 years be compleate and all your fondest dreams come true.Love Belita Happy Birthday Hilary

Hillay,
I wish you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I have been a Democrat for 27 years, and this is the first time I will be voting Republican. The way you were treating by the Obama campaign and the media during the Primary season was grotesque.

There is no way, I could vote for Obama after everything I witnessed. God willing, McCain will win, and you will have another shot at it in 2012.

But I suggest you only do it IF YOU REALLY WANT TO. The sexism used against you was overwhelming and losing your soul sister Stephanie Tubbs Jones may be grounds to say NO THANK YOU. Either way, I love you, my family loves and we all wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Happy Birthday Hillary ! My family and I wish you the best of health and happiness. We hope you know how many people feel you are the best person to be the next President!! We need you to run in 2012 because neither of these candidates are qualified to do the job!!! Take care, Kerry

IS THAT AN OXYMORON, YOU SAID SHE IS A SAINT, BUT
SHE SHOULDN'T CAMPAIGN FOR OBAMA, STOP BEING
STUCK ON STUPID AND DON'T WATCH FOX NEWS ANY MORE
THIS YEAR!

I can't believe the republicans here masquerading as democratic party hillary voters. Give me a break with faux outrage over the primary election.
Just goes to show you how ethicly bankrupt the republicans have become.
Happy birthday Hillary Chicago girl...

Happy Birthday Hillary! We love you and we all know that the crooked DNC stole this election from you. I'm with many of the other commentors on this page...I will be voting GOP for the first time in my life this year. I cannot support the Democratic Party this time around...not after what they did to you.

America is going to wish they had you as President in a few months. Right now, they are clueless as to the grave mistake they made with the help of the bias media and Dem party elders.

STOP SAYING SHE WAS TREATED BADLY AND THAT'S WHY
YOU ARE FLIP-FLOPPING TO THE REPUBLICAN SIDE OF
TOWN, DON'T PLAY INTO FOX NEWS HANDS!
VOTE WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN VOTING ALL OF YOUR LIFE!
THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO STILL HOLD A GRUDGE!
THE ECONOMY IS POOR, THE GOP'S ATTITUDE IS POOR,
THEY ARE PLAYING ON YOUR FEELINGS, SO DON'T GIVE
THEM THE CHANCE TO PLAY ON YOUR FEELINGS, VOTE
FOR THE MAN WHO RAN THE BEST CAMPAIGN, VOTE FOR
THE MAN WHO OUTSMARTED A MAN WHO HAS BEEN IN THE
SENATE 26 YEARS, FACE FACTS BARACK OBAMA IS THE
BETTER CHOICE, HE DESERVES TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY
TO RUN AMERICA! HE DESERVES YOUR VOTE!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY OUR WORLD GREAT WOMEN LEADER HILLARY CLINTON.YOU ARE MY RODEMODEL.WHEN I WAS 12 YEARS OLD .NOW IM 20 YEARS OLD GIRL.MAY ALLAH BLESS YOU.

"Outfit Events also decided that we needed to up the ante at Chicago events by going the extra mile for our crowds.
