Waiting For Anointment: Hillary Clinton Wants To Be President

Gotta say, I'm conflicted about whether to write about US Presidential candidates. My odds of having any impact on the outcome are really low. Once the next President is in office I'd be best off totally ignoring the next set of bad policy choices and assorted debacles. But what pulls me in: some people think one or more of the candidates are good. They have enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton or even for Jeb Bush. Son of Brock Landers (SOBL) thinks Hillary is perfect for today's America. It is amazing and tragic what makes sense to the people who vote in America.

Here is a woman you only know due to her husband. She was in a toxic marriage where she was repeatedly humiliated on a state, national and global stage by her husband, but unlike the Lifetime movie, never left him. Wasn't feminism about escaping those bad Silent or GI generation loveless marriages of convenience? She did not divorce and run on her own. She stood by Bill and received the NY US Senate seat as political alimony. She ducked out of running for president in '04, did nothing really in the Senate but vote for the Iraq War, blew '08, and then was Secretary of State as the US saw influence and power recede globally. Her resume is "Libya", and if we ever evaluate Libya 2010 vs. 2015, that one thing looks awful. Hillary running is like the rapidly advancing female executive who is getting promotions because she is the only woman in the division.

We need some sort of improvement on democracy. This is what comes to me when I read obvious points like the ones SOBL makes above. What improvement? Is there some demographic slice of America that would make a great set of voters? Or do we need another form of government? Genetically reengineering humans to make more sense is still a distant prospect. With the humans we've got how can we get more sensible leaders?

SNL is being brutal on Hillary. I doubt this will dim her chances.

Camille Paglia states obvious things the voters do not care about.

What it takes to plan a Hillary Chipotle trip.

I think Jeb Bush is worse. Most of the Republican pack members are wrong on immigration and wrong on foreign adventures. I despair of getting a good leader again.

All the result of the Holocaust Through Immigration Act of 1965. Third world dumps tend not to have good leaders regardless of the form of government.

A politician can survive almost anything but ridicule. Joe Biden wants to be POTUS, but he's widely seen as a buffoon. He'd be better off as a phony or a liar or a criminal, like Hillary. Hillary is going to be the modern day equivalent of Huey Long: her candidacy will be doomed only if she's found in bed with a dead boy or a live girl.

Anyway, the Republicans are too goddam stupid to exploit what is likely to be handed to them again, the phony "war on women" meme. No one, I mean no one is going to point out that 2 of the last 3 presidents have been Democrat men, ruling for a total of 16 of the last 24 years. If there really was some kind of war on women, why didn't those guys do something about it? Bueller? Bueller?

Sen. Jim Webb seems like the only non-awful candidate in the field, but (a) his chances are slim and (b) I don't know him well enough to have a qualified opinion.

Dead girl or live boy was Edwin "Fast Eddy" Edwards, not Huey Long.

I believe the base of the Democrat party won't go for what they consider an Old White Woman. I know they want another Person of Color (POC). They may not get to throw the old hag over this time, but the time is coming when the White Elites will have sewn the seeds of their own destruction. It won't be White Conservatives who have trouble getting elected. It will be White Liberals.

Will Feminists Allow President Hillary Clinton to Establish Sharia Law Courts in the US?
