The most popular national political figure in America today is one who was rejected by her own party three years ago: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.Is anybody -- anybody! -- surprised by this?
Nearly two-thirds of Americans hold a favorable view of her and one-third are suffering a form of buyer’s remorse, saying the U.S. would be better off now if she had become president in 2008 instead of Barack Obama.
I'm certainly not.
It was clear to me right from the start that Hillary Clinton was far, far more qualified to lead our nation than Barack Obama. But leave it to Democrats to blow it all on what they perceived as a perfect political romance -- themselves and a totally ill-equipped upstart who knew how to talk his way (with a TelePrompter, no less) into office.
The old adage remains true: Democrats fall in love; Republicans fall in line.
And in 2008, the Democrats ditched solid, experienced, sensible, loyal Hillary for their new love. Yeah -- romance really did trump reason.
These are the people who gave you Barack Obama -- fickle, trendy, often vacuous and way, way too easy to impress. This is the wine 'n cheese and Hollywood crowd (along with cadres from the Birkenstock Brigade) who handed the Democrat Party -- and America! -- over to Barry Otero Hussein Obama (or whoever he was or is), These devotees pretend they're oh soooo intelligent but once again showed themselves to be just plain dumb.
Now, a lot of them are apparently having buyers' remorse, Awwwww, whata shame.
Nah, I don't feel sorry for them. Instead, I have a message for them: Deal with it. You picked your mate, now live with him.
Of course I do feel sorry for America.
So, for all of the rest of us -- those of us who knew better, right from the beginning -- I say this: We now know what we have to do for ourselves, our families and our country. And we're ready to do it. Avanti!
