Republicans are having a new feeding frenzy — Hillary Clinton’s letters to Saul Alinksy. Um, think the Barack Obama-Bill Ayres link. That went nowhere and this latest freak-out won’t either. Just saying…What’s next? Hillary Clinton’s Kenyan link?
Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveals new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development….

Clinton’s connection to Alinsky has been the subject of speculation for decades. It became controversial when Wellsley College, by request of the Clinton White House, sealed her 1968 thesis from the public for years.

So, while the right wing blogosphere is foaming at the mouth over Hillary Clinton being a radical leftist, she’s heading for New Hampshire. That’s after a successful Iowa trip.
