Hillary Clinton Drops Maiden Name 'Rodham' From 2008 White House Campaign
Monday , April 30, 2007


ALBANY, N.Y. -

While she is known to millions simply as "Hillary," New York's junior senator is having something of an identity crisis in her official life.

When it comes to running for president, she is "Hillary Clinton," according to her campaign Web site. But when it comes to her official Senate releases, she is still "Hillary Rodham Clinton."

The Clinton camp appeared to be at a loss to come up with an explanation when the Albany Times Union newspaper asked about it.

"I haven't, I haven't," Clinton said with laugh when asked about her apparent name change.

A strategic decision? Clinton campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson told the newspaper: "That's a fair question, but there's no plan behind it."

The name game has been going on for some time in Clinton's world.

When Hillary Rodham married Bill Clinton in 1975, she kept using her maiden name as he pursued his political career in Arkansas and she built her reputation as a lawyer in Little Rock. But, in the wake of his loss in a re-election race for governor, she began using "Hillary Clinton." He won back the governorship.

"Hillary Rodham Clinton" became the standard in 1993 as the Clintons moved into the White House. She continued to use that when she ran for Senate from New York in 2000.

    She is playing the name recognition game. Hoping that the people that liked HIM will think he is running again and vote for her.

    It happened in the Eddie Murphy movie "The Distinguished Gentleman"

    I like the movie by the way.

    Regardless of what name she chooses, the smell is still prevelant IMHO. [;)]

    And here I htought she retained he maiden name so she'd be associated with the former basketball character Dennis Rodham.

    Actually, Rodham is a common misspelling (and hence a common mispronounciation) of her maiden name.

    Her legal name is Hillary Rottweiler Clinton.

    She will prostitute herself to any height to become president.
    To remain married to the biggest womanizer there ever was in face of women's organizations that preach getting divorced shows her and them up for the wh/ore's they are.

    Nothing surprises me about either.
