The Meaning of "No One"

A bizarre press release from Hillary Clinton's campaign includes the following:

"While Sen. Clinton has made clear throughout this process that she will do whatever she can to elect a Democrat to the White House, she is not seeking the vice presidency, and no one speaks for her but her.”

Perhaps years of Clinton-speak have made this correspondent too cynical, but if no one speaks for Sen. Clinton besides herself, does that mean that this press release does not speak for her, given that it was issued by the campaign and not her as an individual? That would stand to reason, given that her sycophantic minions have been talking to anyone who would listen about Sen. Obama asking her to run. It would seem likely that they are following her orders, and there is certainly no evidence that she is demanding them to stop.
