Clinton’s chief strategist quits

The chief strategist for Hillary Clinton’s campaign to become the Democratic Party’s candidate for the US presidency has resigned.

Mark Penn stepped down after a row over a potential conflict of interest involving his public relations firm. Mr. Penn’s company had been employed by the Colombian government to help it pursue a free-trade agreement with the US – a deal Mrs. Clinton opposes. Mrs. Clinton is vying with Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination.

They have been fighting a close battle in the continuing state primary election campaign. The latest count of pledged delegates to the party’s national convention in August, according to Associated Press, puts Mr. Obama at 1,634 and Mrs. Clinton at 1,500. A total of 2,024 delegates are needed to win the Democratic nomination.

I’m wondering if it is true that the mice are the first to run out of a sinking boat!
