Closing Thought–14Nov18

I read an op-ed a couple of days ago and I had to give it time to sink in….someone thinks that Hillary is poised to run again for president………

A longtime adviser to Hillary Clinton has made a prediction in the Wall Street Journal that will be very good news to some Democratic voters and very bad news to others: Hillary Clinton is running again. So writes Mark Penn, a pollster and adviser to the Clintons from 1995 to 2008, in an op-ed co-authored with Andrew Stein, president of the New York City Council. Their premise is that Clinton will return to the Hillary Clinton of old, “the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994.” Think of it as “Hillary Clinton 4.0.” In earlier iterations, version 2.0 lost to Barack Obama as a centrist and version 3.0 lost to Donald Trump after blowing it with white, middle-class voters. The new version of Clinton, however, has learned from all these mistakes.

“Clinton has a 75% approval rating among Democrats, an unfinished mission to be the first female president, and a personal grievance against Mr. Trump, whose supporters pilloried her with chants of ‘Lock her up!,'” the authors write. “This must be avenged.” She’s also had two years to assess her defeat to Trump and what she did wrong. What about the new generation of Democrats? They proved they’re not ready for prime time with the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. Meanwhile, Mike Bloomberg will support her rather than run against her, they write, and Joe Biden wouldn’t stand a chance. Clinton might not announce early, perhaps not until after Iowa, “but rest assured that, one way or another, Hillary 4.0 is on the way.” Click to read the full op-ed.

Seriously?

Why?

Please stop!  Let the country move passed the Clintons….

She will be a point of contention and will invoke the ire of that guy that sits in the White house as I type….the Dems need new blood…the Clintons are old hat and should go the way to the do-do.

The same for Pelosi….she will be a focal point of attacks and the Dem agenda will be pushed to the background…..again the Dems need new blood in the House leadership if they truly want to make a difference….looking to the past will give them nothing but heartache…Clintons and Pelosi are the past please Dems move on to the present and look to the future.

  1. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least to see Clinton run again.Some people never know when to quit. Even in the middle of today’s Brexit debacle, Theresa May continues to act as if she is really in power. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Jeez, she’s kind of like small-pox: When you think your infection is gone and don’t get a vaccine (like the ballots closing), she’s just going to keep coming back.

  3. She could win and we could have four more years of snarky character assassination. Frankly, I’d rather someone else run. I’m sick of the negativity. She’d probably get the full Republican “Benghazi” and “30,000 e-mail treatment”, with a bit of “Yer husband got blow jobs in the oval office” BS. Sadly, she has lots of experience with governance, and I think she’d make a good president if she didn’t have so much baggage.

      1. It will be a hard fight with the Senate and Pelosi may be the best person to lead the Dems at this time…but I think she will be a lightening rod in 2020….chuq

      2. Yes, if nothing else, she needs to stay long enough to point everyone in the right direction, then yield to the next generation. The resistance to her by the right is a tribute to her skill as a leader.

  4. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! —– In reference to “Yes. I hope the Democrats don’t blow the opportunity the electorate gave them for the next two years.” —– The dimocruds will “Blow” anything and anybody that they encounter. Just watch them obsess over Trump for their entire term in the House of Representatives. That is all they will do. They will not govern. They will not legislate to the important issues facing the nation; they will focus on Trump and that is where they will stick! —– Hillardy can win on Trump angst alone! (And probably will because of the “Me-Bitch-Too” movement.

    1. Dems are smarter than the GOP they did not fall for BS before and I do not think they will again……obsesses… like the GOP did over Benghazi….it is what they do both parties will bow and gravel to whichever moron holds the gavel …they are all spineless douche bags……chuq
