Was It Something I Said?

Yesterday, we learned that Hillary Clinton’s people keep a list.  Each name on the list is assigned a number between 1 and 7.  A 1 means exceedingly friendly.  A 7, that you are a treacherous creep.  Or something.

So today’s news, as reported by Julian Pecquet, Russell Berman, and Niall Stanage from The Hill is that:

Democrats atop a political “hit list” of politicians who betrayed Hillary Clinton in 2008 are trying to get back in her good graces as she weighs a 2016 comeback.

So what do you suppose it takes to move from, say, a 5 to 2?  Would a jeweled sword, a couple of stallions, and a fine saddle do the trick?
