Hillary in History

A novelist, writing in the New Yorker, imagines Hillary as entering the White House with a bitterness
that reminds him of Richard Nixon.   When I think of Hillary, the Duke of Windsor comes to mind. The one who gave up his place at the top for love.

She was a star at Yale Law School and a rising star in Washington, even earning a spot on the Watergate Committee.  Then the move to Arkansas that stunned her friends and admirers.

And now?  Is it regret or revenge?

P.S.  I've said all along that having the first black President followed by the first female President is messing with too much primal stuff.  It's not going to be over when it's over.


  1. I think it's ambition pure and simple and the belief that she will do a great job.

  2. She is tough, Joan, and will handle the combat. I think the primal stuff was going to come out anyway. The crazies don't need encouragement in this department. She gives them plenty of material, but I think some of them are expert in generating this stuff out of whole cloth.

  3. It's time to get away from all this negativity! I happily will vote for Hillary and am confident the country will come together.
