Shakeup at Clinton HQ?

I spotted the report that Clinton's campaign advisers are in a state of panic this morning. I didn't think much of it at the time except that-- NO KIDDING! Also, I wouldn't mind watching her supporters get increasingly nasty as she turns on the tears.

But this afternoon, I noticed that her campaign manager, Patti Solis Doyle, is quiting (you may remember Solis-Doyle as one of the Clinton folks that got a Prada bag and a Vegas trip from Norman Hsu). She is being replaced by Maggie Williams, Clinton's chief-of-staff when she was First Lady.

After Clinton lost the Iowa caucuses, Williams was brought in to help manage the campaign. Campaign insiders say the move took power away from Solis Doyle.

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.

The spin on this is that it's just a family thing; Solis-Doyle got tired and wanted to stand down. And, of course, I believe that because the Clinton's have proved time and again what honest folk they are.
