Skip to comments.Hillary Mulling Another Run for Office [semi-satire]

Former Clinton aide Philippe Reines says the twice unsuccessful presidential candidate is seriously considering running against Trump in 2020. On the one hand, shes really disappointed in how voters treated her in 2016. They had their chance to elect the smartest woman in America to be their president, but they blew it. On the other hand, her great love for the country may drive her to once again sacrifice her own personal comfort in one more battle to save the nation from the ravages of the Trump Administration and the Republican Party.
She's concerned about the Trump agenda of fostering rapid economic growth and opening up more job opportunitiesa record 7.14 million at last countthis is more than there are applicants available to fill them, Reines observed. This is a cleverly designed scheme to destroy a major Democratic constituency by driving them into the workforce against their will. The prospect of exterminating a way of life that has sustained generations of Democratic voters has led to increasingly violent objections. Rather than see the nation continue to be torn apart by this violence, Hillary feels it may be her patriotic duty to give voters another chance to correct their previous mistakes of not electing her when they had the opportunity in 2008 and 2016.
Look at the whole issue of recent mob violence, Reines suggested. We didnt see this kind of thing when Obama was president. Sure, there were some TEA Party protests, but they were ineffectually peaceful. Putting Democrats back in power could reestablish that more pacific relationship between those in and out of power. I think what Hillary is trying to communicate to voters is that we all can have more peace and civility under Democratic rule where the opponents of government policy restrict themselves to legal methods of trying to sway policymakers. Many of the more intellectually aware Republicans recognize this and would willingly trade the chaos spawned by opposition to Trumps policies for a return to the old ways of across-the-aisle cooperation exemplified by the late Sen. McCain.
Reines pointed out that a comeback isnt as ridiculous as many assume. Hillary is younger than Trump and Joe Bidentwo of her likely opponents in 2020and would have the edge in appealing to younger voters who might like to support someone closer to their own age. I think her message that the nation wont have civility until Democrats are back in charge in Washington is perfectly in tune with the current mood of the people. Other Democrats like Rep Waters and former Attorney General Holder have grasped the essence of this message, but neither has the eloquence or gravitas that Hillary brings to the table.
Clintons call for Democrats to be uncivil received words of support from her former running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (Virginia) who called for Democrats to fight in the streets. When we are in the minority in Congress and a Republican is president there are no constitutional means for advancing our cause other than the First Amendment right to assemble and make our grievances known by, as Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer urged, any means necessary.
In a related statement about Democratic Party values, the Allegheny County Democrat Party in Pennsylvania fired recently hired Executive Director Mark Salvas for making statements that dont reflect the Partys values or the message it is trying to convey to voters. Salvas offensive statement: I stand for the flag, I kneel for the cross.

Stop saying Democratic Party. There is NOTHING DEMOCRATIC about the DEMOCRAT party.
Thank you. “Democrat”, not “DemocratIC”.
Good stuff! Thanks for posting.
No, the reality is that she’ll confiscate another several million in donations from clueless Libs. She is crazy for the power, but will settle for the $$$$!
She is the Borg queen
She’s the ultimate grifter, pretending at socialism, while stealing everything that isn’t stapled or nailed down. She’s the most dishonest person in US political history.
