I don't consider the HRC old guard in Arkansas as today's Democrats. They are more "Southern Democrats". The culling in the Democratic party that has given Arkansas a Repub trifecta is partially due to the conversion of many Southern Dems to Repubs. Hell, three members of the Arkansas House have switched to Repubs since winning reelection in November. No, I don't believe she would've hired many, but I do know some here that traveled with her during the campaign and fundraised with her.
