All Hail! The King and Queen have left the room…..(and the peasants danced)………
I have not hidden my distaste for anything Clinton. To me they are NO better than those banksters of years ago….they are only in it for the wealthy….and I do understand why so many black people think that the Clintons are all that and a bag of chips…..they did little to improve their lives or the lives of their children…
I will say I was not a Trump supporter neither did I support Clinton but the one thing that I hope this past election has given us, as a country, is the death of “Clintonism”.
In September 1963, two months before his death, John F. Kennedy mused aloud to his old friend the journalist Charles Bartlett about the prospects for the 1968 presidential election, in which, he presciently worried, his brother Robert might run against Lyndon Johnson.
“He gave me the feeling he wasn’t pleased,” Bartlett would recall years later. “He wanted a record of his own. I sensed that he wanted the Kennedy administration to be Jack, and Bobby was going to turn it into a succession thing. Jack didn’t want a dynasty, although I am sure his father would have wanted that.”
The fun thing for me is that I am not alone in my wish to see the Clintons just slink back into the confines of the Foundation never to be a problem again…….
With Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 election, progressive activist Van Jones says that it’s time to move on not just from the Clinton family, but the kind of politics they represent.
Appearing on CNN Sunday, Jones noted that the Democratic Party’s base has gotten significantly more progressive since Bill Clinton was president in the 1990s.In fact, he said that several of Clinton’s policy decisions — from his championing of NAFTA to his support from the 1994 crime bill that introduced the “three strikes” policy — came back to haunt Hillary Clinton during her presidential campaign
