The Wall Street Journal published an article written by Mark Penn and Andrew Stein. They say not only will she run but that she will get the nomination easily. In their article, they say that Hillary has reinvented herself as a liberal firebrand and that she will take extremist positions including universal healthcare.
They make the suggestion that the Kavanaugh hearings showed her replacements to be bumbling fools. And Hillary isn’t? But they are right. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris looked like recent graduates from clown college. She is still finding reasons that she lost other than she was a terrible candidate, but she could still beat this group.
With specific, recognizable jabs, they say that the replacements “revealed themselves to be bungling amateurs in the Brett Kavanaugh nomination fight, with their laughable Spartacus moments.”
“She will trounce them,” reads the op-ed, painting Hillary as, get this, the Trump of her party. “Just as Mr. Trump cleared the field, Mrs. Clinton will take down rising Democratic stars like bowling pins.”
The piece runs through a brief history of slime, covering Hillary classics from “It Takes a Village” through the Hope and Change desert (with a brief layover in “she won more delegates than him” land), and on into the Bernie Sanders doldrums. (You know, doldrums in the oceanic sense, not the hum-drummery sense.) Eventually, it moves into newer songs like losing the midwest. Then finally to the crescendo.
Claims of a Russian conspiracy and the unfairness of the Electoral College shielded Mrs. Clinton from ever truly conceding she had lost. She was robbed, she told herself, yet again. But after two years of brooding—including at book length—Mrs. Clinton has come unbound. She will not allow this humiliating loss at the hands of an amateur to end the story of her career. You can expect her to run for president once again.
