Since she’s been running for president since 2000, Hillary’s Tweet at noon today may well qualify as the most anti-climactic announcement of the Internet era. The “Hillary For America” campaign has written what they believe to be a winning mission statement:
“To give every family, every small business, and every American a path to lasting prosperity by electing Hillary Clinton the next President of the United States.
This campaign is not about Hillary Clinton and not about us — it’s about the everyday Americans who are trying to build a better life for themselves and their families.”
Got that? A chicken in every pot and four more years of the winning post-racial Obama domestic and foreign plan; only this time it will be a post-gender America too. Oh, and it’s not about Hillary.
And she’s already so busy leaning FORWARD. - that she’s working on her succession plan for when her 8 years are up:
If I were Chelsea I might be a bit offended that they found it necessary to photoshop me to within an inch of my life to make me “presentable.” I mean, even Lady M is still sort of recognizable when they’ve finished ‘shopping her. The only other “cover girl” distorted to the point of qualifying as a whole new person under the FBI’s witness protection program was Debbie Wasserman-Schultz:
Butt I digress, I was discussing the inevitability of Hillz…
It is possible that, like other great men before her, she too has a rendezvous with destiny:
There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.
In this world of ours in other lands, there are some people, who, in times past, have lived and fought for freedom, and seem to have grown too weary to carry on the fight. They have sold their heritage of freedom for the illusion of a living. They have yielded their democracy.
I believe in my heart that only our success can stir their ancient hope. They begin to know that here in America we are waging a great and successful war. It is not alone a war against want and destitution and economic demoralization. It is more than that; it is a war for the survival of democracy. We are fighting to save a great and precious form of government for ourselves and for the world. – Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1936
“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.” – Ronald Reagan, 1964
“What difference, at this point, does it make? – Hillary Clinton, 2013
“It’s 3 a.m., and your children are safe and asleep. But there’s a phone in the White House, and it’s ringing. Something is happening in the world.”
Somebody really should take the call. Because somebody’s destiny may be at stake.
