Hillary Clinton: ‘You Have To Be a Little Bit Crazy to Run for President’(VIDEO)
Washington Free Beacon ^ | June 25 2014 | Washington Free Beacon

Posted on 06/25/2014 1:39:33 PM PDT by PoloSec

Presumed Democratic 2016 frontrunner Hillary Clinton said on PBS NewsHour “you have to be a little bit crazy to run for president” during their interview taped Tuesday night.

“Let me just put it like that because you have to be so totally immersed and so convinced that you can bring something to that office,” she added.

Clinton ran in 2008 for the Democratic nomination and lost to then Sen. Barack Obama. She then became Secretary of State under Obama and has been widely viewed as the favorite to capture the 2016 nomination should she run.

Our earliest presidents couldn’t wait to escape politics and return to private life.

In 2008 it took well into the spring before “Mrs Inevitable” faded.

This time around I wonder if she will even make it to the starting gate?

Only if she can get the Chicago mob to support her or at a minimum negotiate a stand clear agreement.

Or a lot. It’s hard to tell how crazy somebody is sometimes.

If you have to be a little bit crazy, Hitlery is clearly overqualified.

She is crazy and physically a mess. I notice every time she has to circumvent a step / stairs she walks like someone closer to an 80 years old.

If insanity is a qualification, then she is certainly meets at least one of the requirements...

Hillary is:
1. a lot crazy,
and,
2. craves power like Sauron.

Her regime will make our brownshirt IRS Commissioner look like Mr. Rogers.

The most luscious scenario I can envision, unlikely though it is (hey, I can fantasize, can't I?) is Dem Hillary running against Rep Sarah Palin, as if the GOP would ever allow it. But really -- for real, if it actually happened, it would be rollicking good fun, truly.

No matter how much the MSM tried, regardless of their tricks, Hillary would come across as the harpy nanny hag government tyrant she is. Palin, no matter how much the MSM tried to mask or divert it, would come across as the bigger-than-life beauty-and-brains combo she is, with a real-life Rugged He Man Alaskan First Dude to go with her.

In that presidential election, fraud would be so desperate on the side of the left that it would border on dangerous. But America would be ready.

This is all within the realm of possibility. Unlikely, I know, but possible.

I'd love to see Hillary vs Sarah!

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are way past “a little” crazy.

Sarah would kick Hillary's butt like Reagan kicked Mondale's. Man, I'd love to see that.

Howdy there, Finny. No cause for alarm. I've just got an acute case of Real Life at the moment. Hopeless addict that I am, I still read at FR every day, but I'm just too swamped to comment regularly right now.

Great to see you!

Don’t worry Windy, Finny and I have just been talking behind your back while you were gone. Nothing to worry about...really...nothing at all. No reason for us to suspect you were out CAMPAIGNING FOR COCHROACH DURING YOUR UNEXPLAINED ABSENCE or anything...nope...none at all...Real life huh...likely story.

BTW, are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist party? ;)

Hey we don’t know! He COULD have been down there with a bullhorn wearing a pony costume waving a trout around. We just don’t know!

I mean during the election YOU didn’t see him here...I didn’t see him here. Come to think of it, you never see him and Batman together either...

VERRRRY odd....

Hey, if I could have made it to Mississippi over the last month or so, you would have likely found me combing courthouse records in Panola County for my MS ancestors' records. My family tree stops right there in 1850 and I've been wanting to trace it back further for years now.

Tell ya what, though. I saw a pickup a couple weeks back that looked a lot like yours with an American Crossroads sticker on the back. It was headed east on I-20. Sure that wasn't you? ;-)

Hell no. My truck has a “I’m ready for Hillary!” sticker. Don’t you remember? I love Obama and hate America. And I’m Yosemite Sam on a Dragon and ... stuff!

I figured since one of FR’s evangelists damned me to hell 2 days running now I should get in good with the home team. ;)

But about that Batman thing. I notice you deftly avoided thinking we wouldn’t notice....

Very clever Bruce. VERRRYYY clever.

Zip your damned lip, Robin!

Don't ya just hate having to say, "I told you so."?

Seems you and I continue to be vindicated by the slow and steady turn of events. I wish I had a buck for each and every time we warned our fellow Freeps about supporting 'the lesser evil' establishment pols. Their support has resulted in precisely what we predicted it would -- in-your-face treachery and betrayal.
