So, apparently the Clinton campaign isn’t happy with the latest iteration of Hillary, the Queen. They’re re-making her again. See, when she first announced, it was behind sunglasses at Chipotle in Maumee, Ohio. It was in a van. It was with staged events, closed to all but the most loyal supporters. Even the participants didn’t know where it was going to be held. That didn’t go over so well. People in Iowa for some reason didn’t respond as they should. Nobody curtsied, nobody kissed the ring. Nobody wept when they saw her.
Then it was on to Roosevelt Island for the “re-launch”, and Hilary 2.0. This one was feistier. This one had some speaking ability, but still was rather stiff. This one met with the public. But this one was dogged by reporters who could have cared less about her positions on important issues of the day, and cared more about some stupid email server in her basement that she’d already had wiped clean, so we would never find out about Chelsea’s wedding plans. Cretans! That also didn’t go over well with anyone. And again, nobody curtsied when they saw her…nobody kissed her ring…nobody wept.
Now, we’re seeing the unveiling of Hillary 3.0. This one has more humor (hopefully she fired the joke writer that gave her the one about “wiping the server clean with a cloth”). This one has more heart (actually HAS one?). This one could be a finalist on Last Comic Standing! Will it work? Do remakes EVER work in politics?
Hillary is old news getting older. She looks frumpy and dumpy. She doesn’t look ready for a fight. She looks ready for a drink. While Bernie Sanders is out there whipping the crowd into a frenzy, Hillary is out there shaking one hand at a time, talking to crowds to 50 people. Bernie’s got 10,000.
And then there’s Joe Biden. Steadily climbing in the polls. He’s teasing everyone with his, “I may run, but it’s going to be tough. I don’t know if my heart is in it.” Look, I understand the guy just lost his son less than three months ago. But being president of the United States doesn’t present itself every day. Of course he’s going to run. Forget what all of the pundits are saying about him being too wounded. Didn’t you see him jogging at that Labor Day parade with Richard Trumpka? Big smile on his face, in shape, ready to go? He’s running.
And according to Rupert Murdoch…he’s going to be tough to beat. I have always felt that if Biden got in the race, Donald Trump would be in trouble. Biden can be happy “Uncle Joe”, or mean Joe. He handles both very well. And he’s a MUCH better politician than any one the Democrats have on the bench or in the race. He COULD just win this thing if the GOP sticks with someone inexperienced.
Will a Hillary Re-set number three work better than the “Russian Re-set” she tried when she was secretary of state? Doubtful. After all…if all they are adding is heart and humor it’s not going to work. What they need to add is some truth. And that’s a quality I don’t think she knows anything about.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
