Get your hankies ready, everyone.
In an article by Ben Smith on politico.com, a very emotional and weary “underdog” who answers to the name Hillary had this to say:
She expressed the sheer difficulty of heading out to the trail each day — “It’s not easy,” she said — and suggested she faced “pretty difficult odds.”
And with audible frustration and disbelief, she drew the contrast between her experience and Sen. Barack Obama’s that suggests that her campaign’s current message — the question of who is ready — matches her profound sense that she alone is ready for the job.
A quick note before we address the sudden weak and weariness version of Hillary…
SHE HAS NO EXPERIENCE!
If Laura Bush was to return to Texas in February of 2009, do you think she would have a fighting chance of being elected as a state senator based on her experience as governor’s wife and First Lady? Of course not! She has done a very admirable job, but in no way is she ready for a job of that level of importance.
Yet Hillary was elected Senator of New York in 2000 after having held no “true” high-level position of her own. She gave up her career as a Congressional legal counsel in 1975 after marrying Slick Willy, the would-be governor of the great state of Arkansas.
Yes, she took the most prominent role a First Lady has ever seen while her husband was in office, pushing the failed Clinton health care plan, State Children’s Health Insurance Program, and the Adoption and Safe Families Act, but does any of that actually qualify her for the job she currently holds, much less the Presidency of the United States?
And yet watch her in this video. Also note the famous wrath that begins to seep through this warm and fuzzy facade.
People didn’t like the anger she showed. They found it distasteful (some of us found it predictable). So now she’s gone soft.
“It’s not easy, it’s not easy, and I couldn’t do it if I just didn’t passionately believe it was the right thing to do,” she said.
“I have so many opportunities for this country. I don’t want to see us all fall back,” she said, her voice breaking in the last phrase.
“This is very personal for me,” she said to supportive applause from the small gathering, at which she’d been discussing policy around a table for an hour. “It’s not just political, it’s not just public — I see what’s happening. We have to reverse it.”
Aw…her widdle voice quivered aw over da pwace! Her is soooo vulnewable!
Give me a break, Hillary. For the record, I hope she does win the democratic nomination; the woman is unelectable on a national level.
