I’m not a huge fan of Hillary Clinton. I do share her views on most issues and I don’t dislike her personally. It’s her style as a public servant I have issues with. I don’t think she’s honest and that doesn’t have anything to do with Benghazi. I think she’d lie about what she had for breakfast. I think she’s too secretive and too controlling. Every politician attempts to control the message but they don’t literally try to corral the journalists covering them.
The other day Hillary was walking down a street and her staff had a rope the media weren’t allowed to get past, and the staffers walked the media down the street like dogs.
So maybe I don’t like her personally. I defend her from personal attacks and generally support her policies. I just want someone else to push those policies. I don’t care what’s in her emails as much as I care that she’s secretive and cagey about her emails. I don’t care that she doesn’t talk to the press (Obama doesn’t talk to the press). I care more when she does talk to the press and controls how they’re going to cover her. I don’t care about the Clinton Foundation’s fundraising. The Foundation is not Hillary Clinton.
If Hillary feels she should operate sneakily as a private citizen, Senator or Secretary of State, then how will President Hillary Clinton operate?
I don’t think Bernie Sanders can beat Hillary. Bernie is on a huge roll because he raised $15 million. That’s impressive but Hillary has raised $45 million. Bernie better have a really great strategy.
I can’t see Lincoln Chafee or Martin O’Malley beating her either (Google them if you don’t know who they are). Living in Virginia, I should be excited, interested or amused about Jim Webb running but I don’t feel anything but bewilderment.
That leaves Hillary (Since Elizabeth Warren won’t get in the race). Clinton is going to be president unless it’s proven that she’s the one who actually fired rockets into the Ambassador’s compound in Benghazi, or a dinosaur-killing-sized comet hits the planet, or she’s been writing song lyrics for Justin Bieber.
Then again, maybe one of those GOP candidates will inspire the country’s voters to thrust them into the White House. Smarter money is on the comet.
