While the GOP looks downward and backward in its negative politics of derision, aiming its appeal to an extremist faction, Clinton reaches outward and forward in her positive politics of opportunity, aiming her appeal to the nation at large. If she runs in 2016, she could well carry 45 states and sweep into office many Democrats running for the House, Senate and governorships.
Ignore the vast wasteland of political “reporting” about a potential Clinton candidacy, such as the idiot punditry about Monica Lewinsky and the irrelevant bromides about who is allegedly up or down on Planet Hillary. Consider carefully, instead, what Clinton is saying this week.
Benghazi? We do not have enough fingers on our hand to count the House Republican committees that have investigated Benghazi.
But even after all of these sham public relations operations — sandwiched between long House Republican recesses and vacations — potential 2016 GOP candidates cannot see the color of Clinton’s pantsuit because she is running so far ahead of them.
ObamaCare? Clinton understands that by November 2016 there will be 12 million people, or perhaps 15 million or more, signed up along with children covered under a parent’s policy.
