Skip to comments.Hillary hype poses risks for a potential 2016 candidacy
Posted on 08/20/2013 12:35:20 AM PDT by South40
Hillary Clinton's lofty status as the apparent 2016 Democratic nominee-in-waiting has some allies concerned that the hype might be too much, too soon.
This seeming inevitability makes her more sensitive to attacks and risks amplifying any stumble, no matter how minor. And voters may react poorly to a candidate who appears to be waltzing to the nomination with minimal effort.
I think people close to her are more acutely aware than anybody else in the country that there's no such thing as inevitability, said a Democrat with ties to Clinton, who requested anonymity to speak more freely about her political calculus.

“a candidate who appears to be waltzing to the nomination with minimal effort”
That’s the same campaign tactic Greg Abbott is using to campaign for governor of Texas.
At least the reporter acknowledges the conflict of interest, filming Hillary promotional materials (he calls 'biographical') and yet hosting the debates.
The false thing here is saying it was to 'prevent' them from doing so. That is simply impossible. I blame that on typical lousy liberal reporting and bias.
Just what this country is in dire need of.
This is a scripted episode. A bunch of high-priced political gamers are in need of paying job right now. So, Hillary’s episode is perfectly scripted for them. They get hired up by the end of 2013, and continually drain on her Iowa campaign effort. By primary time....half of her campaign chest is empty and if she loses Iowa (which has been proven now possible)....then the story kinda ends with Hillary going home early.
Hillary should go home right now, but she’s madly power driven. She was not qualified to be secretary of state or anything else. She’s been an incompetent, sneaky liar all her life from what the record reveals.
Totally disagree. They will say negative things about her, then GUSH about her 6 months out about how FABULOUS she has run her campaign and what a FABULOUS President she’ll make!!!
The Schizophrenia is also affecting RINOs like McCain who complains we lost credibility in the mid east but that hillary is a celebrity. The RINOs are going to have to either go with serious or glitter. I’m not holding my breath and begging them to get out the closet and stopped pretending.
It’s hers to lose. Bengazigate, Travelgate, Fosterfate, White watergate, Dixiemafia, Clinton body count. Chime in to what I missed.
The Dem base is easily swayed by a slickly-packaged newcomer (Bill Clinton. Barry Soetero) and will go for him over the familiar. Hillary is by now an old warhorse. The inevitability strategy is exactly the wrong way to win the Democrat nomination. Didn’t work for her in ‘08, won’t work for her in ‘16.
She’s running like a John McCain in an ugly pants suit yelling, “It’s my turn!” Something awfly Rhino a out that!
And for the first time since I can't remember, the RINOs don't have a clear frontrunner. Their money is divided this time, while the Tea Party candidate seems to be Cruz.
It seems like we're getting some help from above.
As long as the pantsuit cankles remains ‘in no way tiiirred’ she’ll be a shoe-in.
Even when they think they should shut up about her, they don’t shut up about her. “Let’s don’t talk about Hillary!”
A week later....”Well, pretty quiet week and we’ve refrained from talking about a fantastic Hillary-run potential in 2016 .... but ....let’s ..... not ..... talk ....about .....Hillary! Mums’ the word! Sshhhhhhh!”
A month later...”We’ve been amazingly successful about ‘not talking about Hillary’ [no-jinxies, takebacks or crybabies], haven’t we?.....But, seriously folks, LET’s NOT TALK ABOUT HILLARY, you guys...c’mon now [Loose lips sink ships!].......blah blah blahity blah.
The whole idea of a Hillary run in 2016 reminds me of a pole vaulter in a cartoon. Great run up. Then...oops!
Hillary is not going to clear that bar. Not even if she fires up her old broomstick.
Anyway, how hard can it be for the ‘Rats to drum up another charismatic young non-white candidate?
Don’t know what defines a front-runner, at this stage, but the media favorite is already a loser named Bush.
“You can’t polish a turd”.
Yeah, but his niece likes Hitlery.

She can’t keep em anymore. Oh wait, she will donate them to the Clinton Foundation. How cozy.
I'm sure there are several loopholes the evil one knows of which will allow her and her bottom feeding family members to have control of "left over" contributions.
“Hillary is by now an old warhorse.”
At least starting out this early, she can disappear for a while to have a total facelift and makeover so she looks “fresh”!!
