One need only observe Hillary Clinton’s inept campaign launch, re-launch, and second re-launch, along with the half-hearted, ham-handed manner in which her campaign has been conducted, to garner a sense that it all just doesn’t seem to add up. It is as though the candidate herself isn’t trying as hard as she might, as though her heart really isn’t in it. Even though Hillary wouldn’t mind being president, she does not want to run for president. That much is crystal.
She is, after all, a most unappealing candidate. Recent polling indicates that people don’t much like her and certainly don’t trust her. Yet, the massively powerful, entrenched interests of the liberal establishment continue to back her. Why is that … one may ask.
For decades the Clintons have aggrandized and enriched themselves, immensely. And they’ve done so premised on the notion that Hillary would one day follow in her husband’s footsteps to become ‘the most powerful man in the world.’ Holding themselves out in such a manner, they’ve doled out markers to extremely powerful individuals, corporations and state entities around the world. Those powerful interests are now intending to collect. What might be the reaction if the extremely high-priced markers the Clintons have been selling for so many years suddenly became worthless? Consider that and the Clintons’ choice becomes clear: run for the White House or face oblivion.
However, as the FBI investigation of Mrs. Clinton’s State Department emails moves inexorably toward her, oblivion may take a form that no special interest can predict or control.
