No, I’m pretty sure that the Clinton Shoe Woman thing wasn’t staged.

Yeah I’m not buying this.

 

The woman’s reportedly the same one as somebody who interrupted the trial of the Aurora shooter by screaming about people spying on her with rays. Contra Hollywood, crazy people do not make for reliable sleeper agents – and this woman went beyond full New World Order paranoia and right into Full Metal Crazy-Pants territory.  I’m just grateful that she didn’t have a gun.

I love the expression on Bill Kristol’s face here (via @aceofspadeshq*).

That is the look of a man who has rolled a rhetorical hand grenade into a room, and is now waiting with keen interest to see  which of his ideological opponents is going to volunteer to jump on it.

Annnd it’s Chuck Todd.  Who is visibly not enthralled with being stuck being the guy who has to come up with the answer to (I paraphrase) In one sentence, what’s Hillary Clinton’s main qualification to be President? (more…)

Pro-Hillary Clinton ‘Correct the Record’ Super PAC… insinuates that she is a pimp?

Wait, what*?

(Via the Washington Free Beacon) OK, this doesn’t count as a political post, because it’s funny. Here’s pro-Hillary Clinton PAC @CorrectRecord (that link will undoubtedly die in the next hour or so):

MRC asks DNC about HRC’s specific accomplishments. Hilarity ensues.

This is painful to watch, but only in the sense that a really hot shower can be painful when you have a stiff back.

Health whispers about Hillary Clinton.

Always hard to tell how much of this is true, how much of this is BS, and how much is BS that also happens to be true, but for completely unrelated reasons.

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race.

But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns.

Joe Biden is so totally running in 2016. And that’s a problem for the Democrats.

Fascinating Politico article here about Joe Biden and his desire to run in 2016.  Here is the basic problem, in a nutshell: Hillary Clinton is more or less qualified to be President* – or, at least, the Democratic nominee for President – but she is a horrible campaigner and nobody likes her.  People like Joe Biden, and he is better at the entire campaigning thing.  However: by the time 2016 rolls around “close to the Obama administration” is not going to be a selling point in the general election… and while both Clinton and Biden severely suffer from that problem, Biden suffers from it a heck of a lot more.

My answer to “Is Hillary too old to run?”

Like Allahpundit and Charlie Cook I agree that Hillary Clinton is likely but not guaranteed to run; unlike either I am not convinced that she’s necessarily the front-runner. Typically people who are called the front-runner in these things are not… as Hillary Clinton herself might have ruefully told people in 2008. She actually has three things working against her:

  • Her health is indeed an issue.  A big one; and it will only become more of one as Hillary Clinton gets older*.
  • She is in fact inextricably linked to the Obama administration.  This will be neutralized in the primary to a large degree if Joe Biden also runs – he’d be even more linked to the Obama administration** – but if Obama’s numbers continue on the same trajectory that they’re on now then by fall of 2016 ‘part of Barack Obama’s Cabinet’ is not going to be a resume enhancer.

It astounds me that friends of politicians…

…and I mean true, sincere friends – anyway, it shocks me that you’d keep anything remotely resembling an archive of your correspondence with them. I know that you’re not supposed to say that in public, given that it flies right into the (truly good) principle of trying to preserve of history.  But… people like me exist.  And when we’re given this tidbit of information:

Hillary Clinton’s blunt assessments were not confined to Monica Lewinsky. In a Dec. 3, 1993, diary entry, [Diane] Blair recounted a conversation with the first lady about “Packwood”—a reference to then-Sen. Bob Packwood, an influential Republican on health care embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal.

“HC tired of all those whiney women, and she needs him on health care,” wrote Blair.

Hillary Clinton shows Congressional Democrats that revenge is a dish best served cold.

No, seriously.

The Democratic Party’s biggest Super PAC, recently retooled as an early pro-Hillary Clinton effort, will sit out the midterm elections this year.

A spokesman with the group, Priorities USA Action, confirmed to BuzzFeed on Wednesday night that it would not be involved in House or Senate campaigns.

“House Majority PAC and Majority PAC are doing everything right and making a real difference. We fully support their efforts,” said the spokesman, Peter Kauffmann, referring to the main groups supporting Democratic congressional candidates.

I see that Philippe Reines is still being unhelpful for Team Hillary. @katherinemiller

If you only looked at this Tweet (which started off as a reference to the remarkable piece of news that Hillary Clinton has not driven a car for almost half my lifetime)…

Quote of the Day …Yes, Joe Biden Is Running For President edition.

And he’s going to be a vicious little weasel about it, too.

“John [Kerry], thank you for your passion and perseverance and the incredible, incredible energy you’ve shown in representing American interests around the world,” Biden said. “I have been here for — I have to admit — for eight presidents, and I have never seen a man or a woman with as much energy and commitment that you have shown. John, we thank you for that.”

Bolding mine, because I enjoy making trouble.  Your move, Hillary Clinton.

PS: As my wife notes… no, this is subtle.  For Joe Biden, at least.
