Hell hath no fury like a Hillary Clinton scorned!

Clinton Advisers 

Skipping Obama Speech

A number of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s top advisers
will not be staying in Denver long enough to hear Barack Obama accept the nomination for president, 

according to sources familiar with their schedules.

Clinton will deliver her speech Tuesday night. 

She will hold a private meeting with her top financial supporters Wednesday at noon, and will thank her delegates at an event that afternoon. 

Former president Bill Clinton will speak that night. 

Several of Hillary Clinton’s supporters are then planning to leave town — among them, Terry McAuliffe, Clinton’s campaign chairman. 

Another of Clinton’s top New York fundraisers, Alan Patricof, did not make the trip to Denver.

Robert Zimmerman, a Clinton supporter who is trying now to navigate between the two camps, will be staying for Obama’s speech. 

But he said in an interview that it would be unrealistic to expect there would not still be some tension between the two camps — 

he noted that the same was true with supporters of Gary Hart and, to a lesser extent, Howard Dean.



“This convention provides a very important opportunity for the Obama campaign to bond with the constituencies that supported Hillary Clinton,” 

Zimmerman said. 

“It’s not about Barack or Hillary. 

It’s about bringing in the people here who voted for Hillary Rodham Clinton. 

Senator Obama and Senator Biden are, without question, qualified to do that.”

Two more longtime Clinton fundraisers — Mark Aronchick and Hassan Nemazee — were adamant that, while they are making early exits, it should not be viewed as a snub or symbolic gesture.

Aronchick said his daughter is getting married Sunday and he needs to get back to Philadelphia, where he raised big money for Clinton, 

and New York financier Nemazee has an overseas business trip he could not move.

“Don’t read anything into it,” 

Nemazee said. 

“There are people who may not want to stay, but I am not in that category.”

Sources familiar with the schedules of longtime supporters Steven Rattner and Maureen White said earlier today they would also skip the Obama speech, 

but Ratter later said in an e-mail that his wife, Maureen White, “is definitely staying” to hear Obama’s speech and he is hoping to attend, as well.
