Hillary in Midair (Major MSM Clinton for president puff-piece)
New York Magazine ^ | Sunday, September 22, 2013 | Joe Hagan

For four years, Hillary Rodham Clinton flew around the world as President Barack Obama’s secretary of State, while her husband, the former president Bill Clinton, lived a parallel life of speeches and conferences in other hemispheres. They communicated almost entirely by phone. They were seldom on the same continent, let alone in the same house.

But this year, all that has changed: For the first time in decades, neither one is in elected office, or running for one. Both are working in the family business, in the newly renamed nonprofit that once bore only Bill’s name but is now called the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, which will hold its annual conference in New York next week.

“We get to be at home together a lot more now than we used to in the last few years,” says Hillary Clinton. “We have a great time; we laugh at our dogs; we watch stupid movies; we take long walks; we go for a swim.

“You know,” she says, “just ordinary, everyday pleasures.”

In the world of the Clintons, of course, what constitutes ordinary and everyday has never been either. So the question was inevitable: Given who he is, and who she is, does Bill, among their guffaws over the dogs and stupid movies, harangue her daily about running for president?

To this, Hillary Rodham Clinton lets loose one of her loud, head-tilted-back laughs. “I don’t think even he is, you know, focused on that right now,” she says. “Right now, we’re trying to just have the best time we can have doin’ what we’re doin’. ”

Old Sarge: She Who Must Not Be Named is the most ruthless woman ever to stalk the halls of power.

Lazamataz: Nossir. That honor is reserved for Barack Obama.

Obama is a puppet clown who is controlled by his Blackberry. He always has been, Hillary was denied the presidency, but her agenda has been pushed anyway.

Hillary doesn't want to rule - she wants to destroy. And she's raised an army of fools who actually believe she gives a damn about them.

There is no Obamacare - it's Hillarycare, and it always has been. And like everything she does, it's made out of claws.
