Democratic politicians are treading lightly around Hillary Clinton out of fear that failure to enthusiastically endorse her could bring dire consequences.

‘The fear mongering around the Clintons is like, “Don't cross them, otherwise a door in the floor opens up,' she said.

Clinton, along with her husband the former president, reportedly build an 'enemies list' after she failed to win the Democrats' presidential nomination in 2008, keeping tabs on all the people they believed had betrayed her by siding with Barack Obama.

‘I think there's been a lot of reporting about the lists they keep,' Wagner said. 'And we are led to believe that there is this kind of Clinton Industrial Complex where names are kept, sins are recorded. Whether or not they are poring over those notes, you know, on a nightly basis would be very much up to the Clintons. There's a feeling that you have to kind of plant your flag firmly for the Clintons,' she added. 'Especially now.' (Full Video Below)

According to the book 'HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton,' published in February, Clinton staffers would often joke about how black-marked pols ended up ending their careers in disgrace.

'Bill Richardson: investigated; John Edwards: disgraced by scandal; Chris Dodd: stepped down; ... Ted Kennedy: dead,' an aide once joked, the book claims.

Wagner's comments followed an interview of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who supported Obama eight years ago and was among the first to urge him to run for the White House. NBC News Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd asked Reid whether Clinton should have to endure a contentious primary season if she decides to run for president. A cautious Reid agreed without directly criticizing the former secretary of state.
