The Empress of Empty Talk is running for President again. At the moment it looks like she could win the Democratic nomination. God Help Us.
I voted for her in her last campaign, when let’s face it, she was outflanked by Obama in the we shall overcome department. Her caculated vote for the Iraq War also backfired in the Democratic primaries. She was simply not the politician her husband was. My hope she would be a more center candidate was real, the idea that she would be a better one was without merit.
The Clintons are known for their shared falsehoods and their unshared fornication. They have always benefitted from worse opponents on the right. Their shameless accumulation of money from dubious sources and with a complete lack of ethics doesn’t make them stand out in a lineup of politicians across the political spectrum, but they do stand out in their core supporters willingness to ignore that fact.
Perhaps a decent candidate will emerge to counter her this time, but I have my doubts. If anyone can provide an original thought from her I would be obliged. She clearly wants a vapid and shallow campaign in which the voters support her one core belief – that she is entitled to power.
Her husband will laughingly be known as the President after Bush. One can disagree with much about him, but no one can deny he had political skills. Hillary just is, and she demands that be enough. It is a demand I can not accept this time.
