Despite her rough departure from the Clinton campaign during the primaries, former campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle said on Wednesday that she still considers Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton a friend -- even after going to work for Sen. Barack Obama.
Solis Doyle said she played phone tag with Clinton as she tried to inform her about her new position as chief of staff to Obama's future vice presidential nominee. In an interview with the Associated Press, Solis Doyle said she wound up sending Clinton an e-mail with the news.
"She's a friend of mine and I just wanted to, both on a personal and professional level, let her know what I was doing and make sure that she was, you know, good with it. And she was," the AP quoted her as saying.
