Hillary To Release Taxes When It’s Safe

From ABC News:

Clinton Tax Returns to Be Released April 15

Clinton and Obama’s Top Strategists Clash Over Financial Disclosures


March 2, 2008—Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., is poised to release her tax returns “on or around April 15,” Clinton’s communications director Howard Wolfson said in an exclusive “This Week” debate Sunday morning with David Axelrod, senior campaign adviser to her opponent, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.

When pressed by Axelrod as to why “Clinton continues to refuse to release her tax returns, as all the other candidates have,” Wolfson asserted that “the tax returns are going to be released around tax time.”

The two top strategists went on to spar over the release of Clinton’s White House records. Axelrod charged that Clinton “refuses to release the documents from the Clinton Library related to her time in the White House, which is the fulcrum of her argument on experience.”

Wolfson, however, asserted the issue was moot.

“Clinton’s schedule as first lady were given over to the president’s representatives for review. That review has been completed. We’ve given the records back over to the archives. They are now back in the archives’ hands. Our say in the process is over, and I assume that they will be releasing them very expeditiously,” he said…

There is simply no other word for all of this but “Clintonian.”

By April 15th Mrs. Clinton will either be long gone from the primary race. Or, Allah forbid, she will still be in it.

If the latter, she will have clawed her way back so dramatically that she will be able to forget about this pledge from a (probably long since dismissed) lackey spokesman.

But the truly Clintonian touch is in picking a date of “on or around April 15,” to make this sound like it is a matter of Mrs. Clinton meeting tax reporting deadlines — just like us mortals.

Please, all of you Republicans in the states that allow open voting in their Democrat primaries this Tuesday, please help put an end to our long national nightmare. 

We will deal with Mr. Barack X Obama in due course.
