Kathleen Willey to Hillary: Beware the Swifties

Kathleen Willey has a heads-up warning for Shrillary should she plan on running for president in 2008: Remember the Swiftboat Vets' successful tactics this year.

From NewsMax:

When Hillary Clinton runs for president, she may have to face her own version of the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth - in the form of her husband's accusers, the women the Clintons have been trying to erase from the national memory of Bill's presidency.

Reacting to Sen. Clinton's efforts to use the opening of her husband's presidential library last week as a springboard for her campaign for president, star impeachment witness Kathleen Willey told NewsMax, "I have some words of advice for the former first lady: Remember the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth."

Willey said she was struck by the fact that the Clinton library offers visitors a record of the ex-president's schedule for each day of his administration.
"I wonder what would happen if November 29, 1993 at 2:30 p.m. was researched," she said. "That was the fateful day, the day on which my life was forever changed, the day I went to see him about a paying job. I need not go into any further detail."

Willey suspects she's been written out of the script as part of the Clintons' ongoing efforts to rewrite history, along with Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick, Dolly Kyle Browning and other key impeachment witnesses. "We just DO NOT exist!" in the Clintons' version of events, she lamented.

But just like John Kerry's former Swift Boatmates, the Clinton accusers could come back to haunt Hillary when her presidential bid gets under way.

Remember the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, indeed.
