    You've provided a pretty sketchy, negative spin on the planning and preparation underway at the foundation in anticipation of HRC winning the election. Donna Shalala is in charge of the operation and has mapped out a number of contingencies.
    And from your source ...
    So it appears those at the Clinton Foundation are taking the necessary steps to transition if she wins the election. I'm afraid that your thread title doesn't adequately reflect the necessity and preparation behind all of the planning.

    There is no spin.
    The Hill titles: "Clinton Foundation to drop dozens of employees"

    I wrote that that "CF Begins layoffs", which is a true statement. Actually layoff is much better than 'drop', as 'drop' implies that there is no severance package etc (which is a complaint in the article), while layoffs means that it is a planned and organized transition.

    I probably should shut up...but...let me state the obvious.

    They're beginning the transition for when she becomes President. Let's just say: people are "confident" she will win. :)

    Sure there is spin, you've just downgraded from totally false to midly misleading.

    They should consider themselves lucky to be "laid off", rather than bumped off..:cool:
