The Worrying Vacuity Of Hillary Clinton

The Worrying Vacuity Of Hillary Clinton 


Great line by Andrew Sullivan:

"That the resume has little of any substance in her four years as secretary of state does not concern her. She was making “hard choices”, and if we cannot appreciate that, tant pis."

The whole article is amusing if you can get by how scary it is.

Even the URL is a hoot:

I can't stop the software from shortening the URL.  Here it is: http://dish.andrewsullivan.com/2014/07/24/self-agg randizement-isnt-diplomacy/

More than anything else, Mrs. Clinton is, I think, a brand.  What she actually does is secondary.  Obama became a rock star.  Mrs. Clinton already is one.  I can't wait to have her as my next Pres.

In her own way, she's as unqualified as Obama.  Plus, I think she's a health risk, from what I've been reading.  And I certainly don't expect either "inspiring" or "strategic" or "competent."  At best, maybe average.  And I admired her husband.  He did manage to accomplish a fair amount, and he absolutely connected with voters.  But to me, her single greatest achievement was being married to Bill C.

No fan am I of Hillary, but you'd better read Beinart's and Sullivan's columns carefully before you applaud. Their critique is solidly Demented Left, with a solid re-write of 20th Century history for good measure. 

The US, you see, was the Bad Guy in the Cold War, for supporting a series of right-wing dictatorships agains the phantom menace of Communism - and now we are paying that, and for our malevolent invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.  Never mind that the Soviets systematically corrupted anti-colonial and democratic movements, making those dictatorships in every case the lesser evil.

And the Iraq invasion resulted in the first measure of hope for that beleaguered region in a millenium - now endangered by Obama's passivity - while the infrastructure in Afghanistan has taken a massive leap into the 21st Century. 

US power keeps the world turning. Hillary at least has that right.

biggrin  Talk about a thin resume; I tolerated emotional abuse and dishonesty at the core of a relationship for the purpose of personal advancement?  Yea, that's presidential timbre!

What do you see as the chances that by the time this President is done 'managing' his administration, Hillary's candidacy will be as viable as a Cheney led ticket in 2008?   biggrin  Could he have run successfully against the Bush record, it was all Bush's fault?

Reset
Iraq
Afghanistan
Libya
Iran
Syria
Ukraine
North Korea
Central American immigration
Inability to 'lead' our allies

And all these good things fall within the realm of the SoS.

Hilary has already begun to distance herself from all that.

I disagree with Lex - I think she has profound negatives and they will become more and more evident as her candidacy matures. But she sees clearly that Obama's legacy is a killer.

Re: The Worrying Vacuity Of Hillary Clinton 


she'll think long and hard about running and only run if she feels confident of winning, I don't think she wants her legacy to be a failed two time candidate........

Re: The Worrying Vacuity Of Hillary Clinton 


All right, Lex, time for some friendly wagers:

First, Stanford football finishes at 8-4 or worse in 2014.  You've been singing Shaw's praises forever, while I have been warning that offensive deficiencies are going to come home to roost eventually (can't keep putting that much pressure on D and expect to win).  Since Vegas has Stanford at 9-3, that is very gracious on my part.

Second, double or nothing, on Hillary gaining the presidency.  You say yes, I say no.

The wager?  Choice of good bottle of wine, with cap at $50 (I'm still fundamentally cheap).

Deal?
