Clinton's campaign Co-Chair resigns

The first head to roll:

Shaheen announces decision to step down as Clinton campaign Co-Chair
“I would like to reiterate that I deeply regret my comments yesterday and say again that they were in no way authorized by Senator Clinton or the Clinton campaign. Senator Clinton has been running a positive campaign focused on the issues that matter to America’s families. Plus she threatened to kill my cat."

Ok, I made the last sentence up. But with Clinton, you just never know.

In related news, over at Reihl World View, Dan noticed that a progressive blog caught some sock puppets from the Clinton Campaign. It was The Blue Hampshire Blog:

Recently, we admins noticed this comment thread on a recommended diary, and the oddities it posed made us look a little deeper than we normally would.
As the comment thread revealed, users pinballwizard, elf, shley24, MTAY all registered in succession to recommend the diary. A further look by us revealed that:
* they had registered within minutes of each other, including another user a bit later, janbaby, who was not among the recommenders, * the same IP address was used by all of them, and is registered to the Clinton campaign, * two other recommenders, blues and kmeisje, also registered from the same IP address.

The administrators say commenters from campaigns are always welcome as long as they identify themselves as such.

Come on guys, this is just the beginning. Let's just sit back and watch the show. Clinton's team is sure to give us one.
