A few days before the May 8th Benghazi whistleblower hearings I heard several liberals spinning Democrat talking points on cable news saying that these House hearings were really about Republicans trying to build roadblocks to Hillary Clinton’s yet to be announced White House run in 2016.
Of course I was appalled (but not surprised) that Democrats were trying to link Republicans attempting to learn the truth about an attack that left four Americans dead with a potential presidential run still 3 ½ years in the future.
But let’s be realistic here and keep our eye on the prize (that 270 electoral vote prize) by asking the following question:
Do you actually think that coalitions of both high and low information voters who are likely to cast their vote for Hillary Clinton as the first female president of the United States will actually give a rat’s tail about her role in Benghazi, Libya in 2012? Furthermore, if you believe most Republicans actually believe that these latest whistleblower hearings are going to derail Clinton’s 2016 White House run, than you need to order up some professional political help.
For Hillary’s high speed campaign train has already left the station and its cargo includes a major social movement that will “break the glass ceiling” of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
So what about Benghazi? Forgetaboutit! Because most Hillary voters by 2016 will think Benghazi is a new strain of arugula in the fresh vegetable department of Whole Foods.
Enough with the Hillary humor! But seriously, there have been some important developments since our last installment of Hillary Watch 2016. (I have been accused by friends of being obsessed with Hillary, thus I am trying to resist the urge to write new Hillary Watch 2016 posts every time there is major Hillary news.)
But here are a few nuggets I have been saving.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said, “she prays” that Hillary Clinton will run for president. Well Praise the Lord and press the pantsuits!
This Divine request leads to a new segment of Hillary Watch 2016 called “Celebrity Corner.” I fully assume this segment will engulf my entire series sometime in early 2016 when legions of young starlets are seen clawing their way onto Hillary’s campaign bus in hopes of being pictured in People Magazine.
First up in the new corner is old Henry Kissinger (who is still alive I am pleased to report). He, unlike Pelosi, is not asking for God to help make Hillary president, but publicly “joked” to her at an important Washington think-tank dinner saying, “At least four secretaries of state became president.”
This “joke” was seriously reported the next day across all media platforms.
What is not a joke is the fact that Hillary is an extremely polarizing personality in a highly polarized nation.
With that said, the question remains, “What difference does it make?”
