So who is going to be President? I know it’s not going to be Joe Biden. But I am reasonably confident it’s not going to be Hilary Clinton. There just aren’t enough (any?) good reasons to vote for her. People need to connect with their President. Good or bad, it’s absolutely got to be somebody millions of people are interested in staring at for an hour. Maybe if she kept going in the direction she’s going, gained some weight, became more of a big tough old Mama figure, and worked that characature. You know, started wearing a mumu. But it can’t be Barack Obama. It’s not that he’s black or did coke, it’s that he’s made it with white women. That is not OK. But newly or soon-to-be widowed John Edwards? Insane, vain and grieving don’t go well together. But is it really going to be Rudy Guiliani?
From last 3 graphs of today’s Reuters:
Biden suggested Clinton’s experience as first lady in the administration of her husband, former President Bill Clinton, when she tried unsuccessfully in the 1990s to reform health care, would hamper her effectiveness as a U.S. president.
“I’m not suggesting it’s Hillary’s fault. I think it’s a reality that it’s more difficult, because there’s a lot of very good things that come with all the great things that President Clinton did, but there’s also a lot of the old stuff that comes back,” Biden said.
As Clinton fixed a chilly stare on him, Biden hurriedly added: “When I say old stuff, I’m referring to policy, policy.”
