Taking Notes

From NY Magazine (via Michael Crowley at The Plank):

“There are some people the Clintons consider Clinton people who have gotten behind Barack,” a longtime friend of Bill and Hillary’s explains to me. “And there will be total retribution if the opportunity presents itself.”

I’m not saying it won’t happen. But they won’t forget. They may take you back eventually, but they won’t forget.”
