    Clinton blindsided by scheduled event with Palin

    By DEVLIN BARRETT, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 23 minutes ago

    WASHINGTON - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has canceled an appearance at a New York rally next week after organizers blindsided her by inviting Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, aides to the senator said Tuesday.

    Several American Jewish groups plan a major rally outside the United Nations on Sept. 22 to protest against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    Organizers said Tuesday that both Clinton, who nearly won the Democratic nomination for president, and Palin, Republican candidate John McCain's running mate, are expected to attend.

    That would have set up a closely scrutinized and potentially explosive pairing in the midst of a presidential campaign, one in which the New York senator is campaigning for Democratic nominee Barack Obama while Palin actively courts disappointed Clinton supporters.

    Clinton aides were furious. They first learned of the plan to have both Clinton and Palin appear when informed by reporters.

    "Her attendance was news to us, and this was never billed to us as a partisan political event," said Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines. "Sen. Clinton will therefore not be attending."

    A McCain-Palin campaign official, speaking on condition of anonymity because Palin's schedule for Monday has not been announced, said only that Palin tentatively planned to attend the rally.

    Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, did not immediately return messages Tuesday seeking comment, nor did other organizers of the rally. Other event sponsors are the National Coalition to Stop Iran Now, United Jewish Communities and the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York.

    Both McCain and Obama have made strong appeals to Jewish voters, particularly in critical states like Florida. Obama has emphasized to Jewish audiences his commitment to Israel's security, and has worked to dispel doubts created by false rumors that he is Muslim.
    What a chicken!

    Uhm,,,,,,, If Clinton and Palin were both invited, wouldn't it be a Bi-Partisan political event?

    This event was "to protest against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad".
    If Clintoon didn't want to attend because of a member of another party was there, doesn't this suggest she (Clintoon) wasn't really aligned with the demonstrators?

    McCain at Bill Clinton Event
    By Katharine Q. Seelye
    Former President Bill Clinton is welcoming a galaxy of international stars to the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative later this month, including Senator John McCain, the Republican presidential nominee, whom Mr. Clinton has vowed to help Senator Barack Obama defeat in November.
    Others scheduled to attend this year include Al Gore, Bono, Lance Armstrong, Barbra Streisand, Muhammad Ali, T. Boone Pickens and Tom Brokaw. Several heads of state are also coming, including Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan, Gordon Brown of Britain and Silvio Berlusconi of Italy.

    Mr. Obama, the Democratic nominee, is to address the participants by satellite.

    SO? it's not a PARTISAN rally. AND Hillary is not a candidate - so the reality is: Hillary was afraid that Pallin would show her up.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Palin to Meet with Leaders at U.N. - Hillary Cancels Visit - Palin to Head Anti-Iran Rally

    I just heard this on MSNBC. Is this for real? Hillary was scheduled to go to the U.N. but cancelled her visit when she found out they were sending Palin? Palin is to meet with "world leaders" to shore up her "foreign policy experience" ?

    And a TRUE leader/diplomat like Hillary Clinton is out?

    I am outraged and sickened about this ! How long will they continue to push this dangerous, beauty queen neophyte on the WORLD?

    Have we not been laughed at enough over Bush.. has the world not suffered enough for our carelessness?

    Does anyone know the whole story behind this re: Clinton ?

    More like Hillary didn't want to look like she was endorsing Palin.

    McCain Palin just issued a statement:
    "Governor Palin believes that the danger of a nuclear Iran is greater than party or politics. She hopes that all parties can rally together in opposition to this grave threat," says spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt.
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    Kind of annoying how fast they indoctrinated Palin in their foreign policy.

    More like Palin would upstage Hillary. Hillary wants Obama to lose so she can run in 012 or 016.
