And what would the argument for a Hillary presidency be? Something interesting happens when you ask Democrats why her in 2016. They say that it’s time for a woman, that she’ll raise oodles of dough, that other potentially strong candidates won’t dare take her on. The answers are about the process more than the person or any vision she has for the country. There’s no poetry in them. That’s not good.Well, there’s really not much of anything poetic about an ageing government functionary whose pursuit of power resembles nothing so much as a junkie trying to score his next meth hit.
Elsewhere, the obnoxiousness of Democrats, as a class, just keeps getting worse. Behold Eric Schneiderman, New York’s Attorney General, and as vile a specimen of self-seeking, corrupt political ladder-climber as I’ve seen in a while. As the article at the link shows, however, he may well have jumped the shark in taking on Donald Trump.
