Hillary Clinton concludes 2016 a winner.
If you consider being placed alongside Anthony Weiner, Tim Kaine and some others as 2016’s “Least Influential People Of 2016” list!
GQ contributor Drew Magary pens this analysis:
I hate putting her here, given that liberals turned on her like pit vipers the moment she conceded, and given that nearly three million more people voted for her than her opponent, and given that Russia deliberately hijacked the election cycle. But I have no choice. When you lose an election to Donald Trump, you belong on this list.
… It’s Donald Trump! I genuinely doubt whether that man can tie his own shoes, and he still beat her. Would it have killed you to visit Wisconsin, Hillary? I know it’s full of fat people and bad pretzels, but sometimes you gotta come out of your fundraising hole and kiss some babies. I’ll never get over it. I’ll be 80 and on my deathbed and my kids will be around me and I’ll beckon them closer and, in my final moments, I will whisper these words like a secret: “I can’t believe she lost to that asshole.”
I must admit, I am still enjoying November’s gift of schadenfreude through this holiday season.
Speaking of gifts, Democrats may want to ask Santa for a new slate of presidential candidates for 2020 (while there is still time). It will be challenging to actually nominate the current front-runner.
On the theory that it’s never too early to launch the next campaign, the new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll has identified an overwhelming front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.
It’s someone entirely new.
Literally. Not an identifiable person. Just “someone entirely new.” When that description was included on a list of possible contenders, 66% of Democrats and independents said they would be “excited” to see such a person jump in the race; just 9% thought he or she shouldn’t run. That’s an overwhelming yes-please-run score of 57 percentage points for, you know, whomever.
A whopping 62 percent of those polled don’t want Hillary Clinton to run again.
Now, that is what I call an entirely believable and thoroughly reliable consensus!DONATE
