Clinton campaign manager resigns

Wow.

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….

Many on the campaign underline that family considerations also played a role in her decision. The mother of two young children, Solis Doyle is like many in the campaign who had expected the nomination fight to have been wrapped up one way or another by Feb. 5, Super Tuesday, and are exhausted and somewhat demoralized to think this struggle might last weeks or even months longer.

That is absurd. I never planned on having to work past February 5, so I, the person running your entire campaign, am ditching you, Hillary? No, this is a campaign shake-up and the staff should embrace it. It gives the public perception that Hillary “gets it.” She knows she’s has some stumbled the past few months and is prepared to fix things. Embrace it.
