Hillary’s Political Epitaph?

In her press conference this week, Hillary Clinton purported to address the many issues surrounding her email scandal and put them to rest. In fact, she did anything but, never adequately explaining why she kept private all her official emails during her tenure as U.S. Secretary of State, or why she refuses to allow a non-partisan, confidential review to determine whether they are indeed private or part of the public record.

In a tired, defensive and off-putting performance, she offered excuses and rationale flimsier than overcooked angel hair pasta, and most likely signaled the end of her next campaign for the presidency before it officially began. The quote that stood out, against rather stiff competition, was her statement, “The server will remain private.”

Those five words, actually a double entendre, may also end up a political epitaph. Because so long as she hides her public record from the public, Hillary Clinton, the supposedly benign public servant, will likely remain a private citizen.

In a deceptively honest way, however, she was putting her cards on the table, in full view of the assembled press and voting public, to let us know what the next decade or so could look like if she were to become President of the United States. Here, crudely paraphrased, is the blunt thrust of her comments and obfuscations: This is who I am, and this is how I operate. I’m not going to change just to please you schmucks. If you still want to support me, great, we’ve got a deal. And if you don’t want to support me, then don’t. Frankly, I don’t give a damn.

Do we?


One thought on “Hillary’s Political Epitaph?

  1. Hillary’s political epitaph? You are quite the optimist now, aren’t you?

    The same electorate that turned a blind eye to Obama’s lack of experience and anti-American leanings and pro -Islamic tendencies will have no problem electing Hillary.

    Rush Limbaugh call these folks the “low information voters” and sadly that describes almost 60% of the people who actually vote. Sadly, we tend to get the government we deserve.
