Holden Endorses Clinton;Becomes “Special Dialects” Advisor

October 17th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

As you know by now, the Missouri Political News Service tries to bring you the most current news and information every morning, not yesterday’s cut and paste headlines. In that spirit, we bring you a beyond the headline exclusive of why former Governor Bob Holden endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton yesterday.

MOPNS has learned that Holden has taken an unpaid advisor position within the
Clinton campaign. Our sources confirm that Holden will become Clinton’s new “special dialects” coach. With the Democratic nomination all but sewed up, Mrs. Clinton and her advisors realize they cannot win the White House without winning a southern state. After her speech at the anniversary of the Selma Bridge March last summer, where Mrs. Clinton feigned the worst southern accent in recent memory by a politician, she understood she needed help. When asked why she didn’t solicit the help of her southern, ex-president husband, Clinton purportedly responded, “I don’t see Bill very often these days. I am constantly on the campaign trail, and, it’s not like Bill and I sleep in the same bed.”

Holden had this to say after a MOPNS investigator caught up with him. “I’m just happy to have someone in the Democratic Party listening to me again. I can help with the southern accent, but the African American dialect may pose a problem for me. I’ve put in a call to my former trusted advisor Tim Person to help me out. I heard he needs clients.”

The Missouri Political News Service will continue to investigate.
