New York Post: Hillary Clinton / Barack Obama feud continues to bubble and froth.

Meanwhile, in lighter news

Hug it out? Not a chance.

Despite widespread predictions that Hillary Clinton and President Obama would kiss and make up when they sat down at a friend’s birthday party on Martha’s Vineyard last week, sources inside the Clinton camp tell me that instead of a hug-a-thon the meeting turned into a tense, awkward freeze-a-thon.

Enjoy, progressives! – Jon Corzine starting the process of joining Team Hillary Clinton.

I wonder if progressive Democrats are really Ready for Hillary.

Not that they have even the illusion of a choice. Events like this are pretty much designed to hammer that basic reality home. Jon Corzine, by any rational standard, should have been at least tried for fraud for what his MF Global brokerage firm did with over a billion dollars of their customer’s money (it took two years to get that money back). And yet… as Mollie Hemingway notes here, Jon Corzine had the good fortune of being a major bundler for the Obama administration.  So, oddly enough, there’s been no criminal charges filed. (more…)

Bad timing: Hillary Clinton book bragged about Hamas/Israeli ceasefire.

Although, to be fair: it did manage to last past Clinton book’s publication date.

…So, given that Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State was a Mega-big Bucket Of Maximum Fail, what else does she have to bring to the table?

Hillary Clinton shows the anti-Bush Left the Hawaiian Good-Luck Symbol.

I do not believe that Hillary Clinton actually believes this, but I do believe that she believes that she needs to act like she believes this. (more…)

Ah, yes, the Unsinkable Hillary Clinton. #2016

This is an interesting tweet…

…mostly because I remember how inevitable Hillary Clinton was in 2006, too. Admittedly, the options have gotten worse since then – Barack Obama has had the same effect on future Democratic candidates that dioxin has on plants – but, still, it’s not like the woman is a great candidate. And if 2016 really does end up being a foreign policy election, then the Democrats would be better off nominating somebody with no record before they nominate someone with her record.

Quote of the Day, Early Presidential Entrants Often Don’t Finish The Race, You Know edition.

Here is a truth:

Hillary Clinton already wears the mantle of presumptive nominee for president. She’s an accomplished lawyer, a member of Walmart’s board of directors, a close adviser to her husband when he was president, a two-term senator from New York, and secretary of state. And yet, she is a horrible politician.

And before I am assured that the media will cover for her, let me remind folks: the media has its limits. If it didn’t, Hillary Clinton would be topping the bestseller list right now.  She… is not.

Rooting For Injuries Watch: Hillary Clinton vs. Ashley Madison.

I don’t give a tinker’s dam who wins this one, as long as it’s a messy fight.

 

…And I could go on in the vein of ‘I am happy to see a Democratic Presidential candidate and a company that explicitly bases its business model on encouraging adultery fight it out,’ but the Supreme Court beckons.  See you on the flip side!

:rolling eyes: The Inevitability of Hillary Clinton, v2.0.

You know, I heard all of this eight years ago, too.

I think she’s already running for president, that it will be impossible to deny her the nomination, and that it will be exceedingly difficult for the Republicans to stop her in November 2016, no matter who they put on their ticket.

You know what’s changed, since then? Hillary Clinton’s almost a decade older. Which would be great for her if she had been forty in 2006. Fifty-nine? Not so much.  Love to tell the Democrats this (well, I’m not gonna lie and say that I hate to), but they should have run their top two candidates in reverse order.  But never mind me.  Go run with this inevitability thing.

Again.

The Daily Beast interviews rape victim from 1975 court case involving Hillary Clinton as defense attorney.

I know that the title is clunky.  The problem is that every alternate headline that I came up with made it sound like Hillary Clinton raped a twelve year old girl.  Which is not true.

Well, possibly for a given value of ‘not true.’

Hillary Clinton is known as a champion of women and girls, but one woman who says she was raped as a 12-year-old in Arkansas doesn’t think Hillary deserves that honor. This woman says Hillary smeared her and used dishonest tactics to successfully get her attacker off with a light sentence — even though, she claims, Clinton knew he was guilty.

The victim in the 1975 sexual abuse case that became Clinton’s first criminal defense case as a 27-year-old lawyer has only spoken to the media once since her attack, a contested, short interaction with a reporter in 2008, during Clinton’s last presidential campaign run. Now 52, she wants to speak out after hearing Clinton talk about her case on newly discovered audio recordings from the 1980s, unearthed by the Washington Free Beacon[*] and made public this week.

Quick background, for people who don’t know: twelve year old was raped in Arkansas. At the 1975 trial, Hillary Clinton (defense attorney) made various claims about the victim, played a bunch of procedural games with the physical evidence, and managed to get her client a plea on a lesser charge that ended up with him in jail for a year, with two months time served.  The victim? …Had and has a hard life.

Jason Mattera goes there with Hillary Clinton.

Jason Mattera went up and asked Hillary Clinton to sign a copy of her new book for him, only he wanted it made out to Chris Stevens. Because no fear.

Hillary, surprised by the request, replied, “Yeah, I’m not gonna make it out to Chris Stevens.”  Mattera followed-up with, “What difference does it make?” a reference to Clinton’s infamous 2013 Senate testimony before the Foreign Relations Committee.

This will be Secretary Clinton’s life for the next two years.  Yes, I know that we’re all really broken up about that.

Sure, Hillary Clinton should promise to fulfill Barack Obama’s legacy!

I don’t really want* to fisk this article on how Hillary Clinton should run on a platform of being Barack Obama’s third term – she totally should, by the way – but it’s hard not to fisk when somebody leads off with a sentence this interruptible.  So let me just interject, the one time:

Conventional wisdom has it that President Obama’s middling poll numbers will be a drag on Hillary Clinton’s presumed march toward the presidency.

…Actually, conventional wisdom has it that President Obama’s second term poll numbers are awful, are likely to continue to be so, and are already notably below average for Presidents halfway through their second term. That’s because conventional wisdom knows that Gallup has a website where it keeps track of such things. (more…)

This Washington Free Beacon video warmed the cockles of my heart.

Watch to the end.

Just for the record: I love these guys.  The Washington Free Beacon does some great work, consistently.
