Hillary Clinton A Big Mistake?

I’ll be honest, Hillary Clinton’s official announcement of presidential intent left me feeling unsettled. The painfully bloated process of convincing Democrats her presidential nomination secures a White House term has begun. In a perfect world, the stuff of bitch slapping justice – American voters would ice two terms under Obama with a heaping layer of – “Hey conservative America, stop pinching yourself – this isn’t a bad dream. Pay attention – the people traded a black Democrat for a female Democrat.” Hard as I try, pondering Hillary as that female arrives at inspiration begging for a new home.

Lacking any basis for conclusion other than gut feeling, coupled with the fact I’m not even American, should have prevented tackling a subject based solely on opinionated babble. Truly wishing I’m out of my Canadian mind, until convinced otherwise – I think Hillary for first female Democrat president of the United States is a mistake.

Politics is a fickle game – weighing probability of success against greatness isn’t for the faint of heart. Compromise is the tough choice taken to assure political victory. Hillary is a household name, she leans to the right of left – a position appealing to vastly more fence sitting voters than a idealistic unknown, controversial shit disturber, Christian morality ruffling visionary or bleeding heart liberal. Hillary strikes me as a safe, uninspired calculation.

It’s entirely possible my naive reaction stems from utter contempt of political posturing. Given a choice between Hillary and any Republican front runner – Hillary looks like a breath of fresh air. If only she wasn’t so boring.

Every so often a politician comes along equipped with electrifying ideas, persons capable of restoring  purpose, hope, and dignity to otherwise disillusioned masses. Obama’s vision of America began that way, I can’t help but wonder if Hillary is a Democrat compromise following Obama’s horrifying slaughter at the hands of right wing nincompoops. America squandered change under a great man – perhaps the Democrats are banking on ho-hum Hillary, appealing to safe middle ground.

If I could choose a female candidate for the Democrats, Elizabeth Warren would take the prize.Warren is a remarkable American – one smart enough to speak her mind, pick her battles and politely refuse Bill Maher’s offer of $1 million dollars to run for president. Elizabeth Warren isn’t boring, complacent or afraid of anything – smarten up Hillary and prove me wrong.

  2. Hillary is far from boring. You’re always waiting to see how she might denigrate the USA or military. She’s the worst possible choice the dems could have picked. A lot of people on my sites will not vote for her. I won’t vote for her or any democrat. I’m tired of their self-centered politics. She’s pandering to the gays and feminists. H has trained under obama, so you know she won’t fall far from the tree. The news media has already started their campaign in her support, ignoring all the wrongs that she has committed. Who’s her running mate? Michelle? Obama? H is anti-American and does not deserve the office of president. I’ll take a Republican any day. They support America. Do you know the Dems have all 10 planks of communism as part of their party platform?

    • Oh man, you know we can’t talk politics without landing at the doorstep of vast philosophical differences. I may not believe Hillary is the best female Democrat candidate but that doesn’t mean I think she’s “anti American”. My goodness, the “10 planks of communism”? Yikes.
