Hillary Clinton’s coy flirtation with a 2016 run is getting old

posted at 12:01 pm on July 16, 2014 by Noah Rothman

“She’s setting herself up for the biggest anticlimax announcement ever,” CNN anchor Chris Cuomo observed on Wednesday of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s endless, self-aggrandizing book tour cum presidential campaign roll-out. In the end, Cuomo’s prediction may prove to have been an understatement.

Now in week seven of Clinton’s journey of self-actualization, after a rocky commencement from which she seems to have recovered, the former secretary saved her most fawning interlocutor for what everyone must hope is last.

In a Tuesday evening appearance on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart made sure that his line of questioning of Clinton implied that he was in on the joke. What’s the joke, you ask? That no one is even remotely interested in Clinton’s book. All they want to hear is her finally pulling the trigger on a presidential campaign.

Stewart accurately observed about the book Hard Choices, “no one cares.”

“They just want to know if you’re running for president,” he added with equal candor.

What followed was an excessively coy display of false modesty in Clinton’s responses to questions aimed at eliciting the former secretary’s thoughts on the he next career move. Questions like “Do you have a favorite shape for that home office?” Or, “Would you like that office to have corners or not to have corners?”

The whooping automatons in the audience, who are really just happy to be there, responded to all of Clinton’s toying responses with hysterical enthusiasm, but it’s hard to believe that the viewers at home received this performance in the same way. Clinton’s act has grown old fast.

In committing to this book tour, Clinton made the calculation that her popularity among Democrats, the weakness of the 2016 field of possible Democratic alternative candidates, and her unique stature as a figure in American politics for more than two decades would allow her to forget the lessons of Rudy Giuliani’s campaign.

Giuliani, you’ll recall, began to campaign for the 2008 presidential race in earnest in late 2006. By the time the first primary ballots were cast, enthusiasm for Giuliani was tapped. The concerns of GOP primary voters about the former mayor’s positions on a variety of issues, litigated ad nauseam on cable news and in print for months before the candidates hit the first debate stage, were only confirmed when Giuliani was challenged on them by his fellow cast of 2008 aspirants.

And just 30 days after the first caucus ballots of the 2008 race were cast, after spending nearly 18 months at the top of the field of GOP candidates in the public polling, Giuliani was knocked out of the race.

Clinton has chosen to ignore that lesson. She has decided that it is one which does not apply to her, and she may be correct. Then why the artificial shyness? This is not the 19th Century when appearing outwardly ambitious was seen as a ghastly impropriety, and a prospective presidential candidate had to lobby behind the scenes for the job, only to feign weary and burdened capitulation when “drafted” at the nominating convention. No one would begrudge Clinton an announcement now. In fact, it might be considered an act of authenticity – a trait the Clintons are often seen as lacking.

“Giuliani did not collapse under the weight of a failed strategy,” wrote the former mayor’s pollster Frank Luntz in a postmortem in the Los Angeles Times. “It’s that this incredible communicator had no theme. No focus. No discipline. And no campaign team with the heart and guts to fight to keep the campaign message on track within a chaotic political environment.”

Clinton’s theme thus far for her campaign, to the extent that she has one, is that she is a woman and that the presidency is her due. The most interesting thing about her candidacy is that she has not yet announced it. That is a dangerous place to be for a candidate. What happens after she does?

Christie and Paul are 51 years old. Cruz and Rubio are 43 years old. If they don’t run in 2016, they will still have other chances to run in the future. But Hillary is 66, and I don’t think she’s likely to run in 2020 or any future election beyond that unless she already is president at the time. For her, it’s now or never.

No way in heck does this power-hungry witch NOT run. Does anyone actually believe she won’t? It’s all she’s planned and thought of since she left the White House.

Furthermore, the sycophant media will continue to prop her up and ignore any deficiencies. “The First Woman President” meme will be all she needs. Combine that with the Democratic-controlled Electoral College and she’s a lock. Hillary will be our next President. Book it.

Steve Z on July 16, 2014 at 12:35 PM

What an excellent analogy. Both Hillary and Rudy are East Coast elites who were never in touch with actual voters in their parties who live in the heartland. In 2008 Hillary got her clock cleaned in Iowa, and Giuliani never even bothered to campaign there. Hillary staged a little rally in New Hampshire but she was basically finished after Iowa, as was Giuliani.

I do not see how Hillary does any better in 2016 in Iowa. If anything she has even less of a common touch now than she did in 2008.

rockmom on July 16, 2014 at 12:35 PM

Well, we seem fine having a pot smoking, coke snorting POTUS now..why not a chronic, falling down, boozy derelict like Hillary?

Hillary is chronic, and in the later stages…it will not be pretty.

IIRC, Giuliani didn’t actively campaign in the early states, hoping to wait until Florida came up to make his move. This backfired on him immensely.

First, this is a possibility for her in particular only because her husband was President. I’m not a fan of Bill but I’ll give him credit as one of the most deft politicians during my lifetime. That is when he was in his prime. She would not be on anyone’s radar for this candidacy if not for him. She doesn’t come close to having Bill’s political acumen although I’m not sure he really has “it” anymore. Second, if she wants to be the first woman President this is her last chance.

Whether she’ll run or not? I don’t think she would enter the race unless she had all but a 100% chance of winning. She might have the luxury of drawing this out until she knows who the Republican nominee is.

Remember: If you can’t get rid of a politician in local office, elect them to a different office further away. Hey, it worked for Huey Long and Bill Clinton…

From Althouse re Herself vs Fauxahontas:

It’s time to look to the new generation, and Warren’s fresh-faced and 65.

Do any of the demos have a regular type person who is not a RADICAL??????

Bart Stupak (D-MI) was tolerable…until he sold his soul for 404care

“She’s setting herself up for the biggest anticlimax … ever,”

Bill: “Finally, she gets to experience MY side of the story!”

She does have name recognition, and the Oprah crowd (middle aged housewives) seem to be thinking that it’s “time” for a woman president, and the young Libtards think she’s “the bomb”.

She’s managed to successfully dodge her hypocrisy on gay marriage-most of the Dem voters just assume that she’s always been for it, and if she wasn’t in the past that’s OK ’cause neither was Teh One once upon a time-but deep down inside how they feel is what really matters…not what they say in public.

Then there’s the Howard Stern generation that equates the name “Clinton” with the ’90s knee-jerk response/grunt “good economy”…and they actually like the idea of a lesbian or bi POTUS…preferably with an all-female staff wearing lingerie in the WH.

I don’t think she’d be a shoo-in given how the Dems swept her aside in favor of Obummer, but I wouldn’t be too quick to write her off, either.

Of course she’s running. Otherwise, all the millions she and Bill raised over the years to pay for scientists to create a make-up with a Silly Putty/Preparation H base will have been for naught. From her looks on The Daily Show, it’s still in the beta development stage.

It was worn out in ’08.

formwiz on July 16, 2014 at 3:32 PM

Well, yes.
As is always the case.
Can the same not be said for Christie, Paul, Cruz, Rubio, etc.?

Sweet comeback, bro.

Gee, what’s the obvious difference between Clinton and those 4? Let me know if you need a hint.

Hillary is old school. Warren and the progressives (Marxists, Communists, Neo-Marxists, New Leftists, Working Family Party, Watermelons, Greens, lunatics) are going to eat her for breakfast.

Watching this brown nosed pandering to Hillary was actually very painful. Stewart on his knees bowing down to Hillary is the kind of liberal fluff that makes my stomach churn.

We were listening to the local call in show, Talk Back Montana, yesterday when a caller asked the local guest fems the what has she done question. They spouted some drivel about how Killary provided a lot of money for children world wide under some program State had. If this was real, why didn’t State answer that question when put to Psaki by the lsm? More importantly, why didn’t it help the kids in Nic, El Sal, and Hon, so they could have avoided the death train? This must mean that Killary finally thought up an answer for the question and now nobody is asking.

The old bag. She cannot pick up the phone at 3 AM and has no business being in the White House. Maybe Barry will send her food stamps as she is so pitifully poor. These people make me vomit. The Democrats are destroying the fabric of this country. Can we turn away from Communism?
