It looks like Hillary Clinton will be making another run for President. I was a Democrat during her years as First Lady. When Mrs. Clinton decided to run for New York’s next Senator, I was all for it. In all honesty, my heart-felt support came from my pity for her after she experienced public humiliation at the hands of her President husband, Bill Clinton and his sexcapades with Monica Lewinsky. My support had nothing to do with any qualifications she possessed to represent the people of New York.
I wonder if people think Mrs. Clinton is due the presidency, because she was supposed to be elected President in 2008. In the early days of that presidential season, the projection was that Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic presidential nominee and Rudy Giuliani would the Republican presidential nominee. Now how wrong was that? Mr. Giuliani quickly went down the drain early in the primary season. Barack Obama came on the presidential scene on the Democratic side and just took Mrs. Clinton’s presidential hopes with him as he became the Democratic presidential nominee and then our President. People changed their mind and went with electing the first black male President over the first white female President.
Next year will be here faster than most of us will realize with the start of the presidential campaigns in both major political parties with the debates. Then 2016 will bring the primaries, national political party conventions, that heavy September/October presidential campaigning with the two-party candidates debating and then the election. It seems like Hillary Clinton has already received the Democratic presidential candidacy. One would consider what happened in Benghazi under her tenure as Secretary of State to be a glaring stumbling block in her efforts to be the next President. But then on the Democratic side, people like her.
Now think! Can you name a Hillary Clinton achievement? Well neither can these Democrats!
