Clinton's Traitor List

The Hill has an early except from HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes.

"Aides on Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign kept a detailed list of party colleagues who staffers believed had betrayed her during the long and bitter primary battle with President Obama...The list included rankings, with those who were considered the most egregious traitors by Clinton loyalists receiving the worst possible score of 7 on a point scale."

"Then-Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), who would ultimately succeed Clinton as Secretary of State in the Obama administration, was among those receiving the blackest of black marks... So too was Kerry's Senate colleague from Massachusetts, Edward Kennedy, who died in 2009. Also on the political hit-list were Sens. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), Bob Casey (D-PA) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) as well as Reps. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Rob Andrews (D-NJ) and Baron Hill (D-IN)."
