BREAKING: Hillary Clinton's Campaign Manager Steps Down

From ABC News:

Patti Solis Doyle announced that she is stepping down as the campaign manager for the presidential campaign of Sen. Hilary Clinton, D-N.Y., ABC News has learned that this afternoon.

In a note she sent to her staff, Solis Doyle announced that this week Maggie Williams, Clinton's chief of staff when she was first lady, "will begin to assume the duties of campaign manager." Solis Doyle said she would remain as a senior adviser to the campaign

My guess is the ass whooping Clinton got last night was the straw that broke the camels back. It's not that she just lost last night, she lost BIG. I mean it was 2 to 1 in Washington and Nebraska and while Louisiana was closer it was still a 20 point drubbing.

Not only that but there is no guarantee she wins Maine and Tuesday is looking bleak. her best hope is Virginia and that's no guarantee. Her campaign is running on fumes (let's not forget the 5 million dollar "loan") and I'm sure she's worried about the Superdelegates jumping ship if she keeps on this losing streak.

We can hope Maggie Williams does a better job but this campaign has been on the defensive since Iowa and has never really regained its footing.
