This is beyond odd, but here goes. I rise to defend Hillary Clinton.
She is under attack and this time, the long knives are wielded by members of her own clan. Suddenly, after two years of indulging Clinton's blame games and pity parties, lefty pundits say she's talking too much, she's stuck in the past, she has her chance and she blew it.
Vanity Fair, declaring that she's 'still hasn' Clinton said, "What an adult."
Politico flatly declared Clinton a
A New York Times columnist, noting that Clinton is a font of gaffes and a focus for Republicans, accused her of "moral arrogance" and wrote that "someone needs to perform an intervention."
The passions are real and the imagery colorful. Imagine in intervention where a pink pussy has posse forces
Alas, the motives are suspect. These three writers, are not so much at Clinton. Democrats running in the midterm. They are supposed to be hogging the spotlight. They're mad because they're afraid they're undercutting the holy they were against President Trump.
Intramural feuds are often bloody, but this one is so stupid. Trying to silence Clinton is a lost cause and, even if it succeeded, would not cure what ails democrats.
In fact, shutting up might even push the party deeper into the wilderness.
Implicit in the charge that Clinton is the problem is the assumption that others are the solution. Trump in 2020. After all, that's the job that is vacant.
So Bernard Sanders, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, and Kirsten Gillibrand.
Anybody got out?
Sanders is running on vapors, Booker is a lightweight embarrassed man with the Spartacus watch and Gillibrand is a do-nothing hack.
As for Warren, CNN, showing its usual tin ear, moved to the top of the field just before she died with her disastrous DNA test. Joe Biden, Eric Holder, Montana Gov.
Other advertisements include Joe Biden, Eric Holder, and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick.
Same question: Does any body look like a champion in waiting?
New York's feuding frick and tailcoat, Mayor de Blasio and Gov , Cuomo.
Mayor Putz is term-limited and it looks as if his career has peaked. His image of being lazy, corrupt and incompetent means he can not be asset to anyone, so he can have a job when he finally leaves City Hall.
As for Cuomo, his mediocre record might get him a third term in deep-blue New York, but it's not likely to endear him to national Dems. He trusts no one, including himself, which is why he hides from the media, read he say things like America "what never that great."
His habit of ducking debates will not fly in a grueling presidential campaign against unnumbered competitors
Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is considering a run, and fellow richie Tom Steyer, whose deep pockets are funding the "Need to Impeach" movement, could be a candidate. Oprah flirted with the idea before saying no, but do not be surprised.
The list, then, is long, varied and growing ̵
It's so why I've been saying it for a long time.
And Bill Clinton announced their six-month speaking tour. The gambit is designed to keep her name front and center without having to declare herself a candidate. Her recent phone calls to White House reporters also signal her plan.
So I was not surprised when one of her former aides, Philippe Reines, admitted to Politico that Clinton might run. Trump and could raise the money.
There are doomed attempts to silence her are doomed. Brace yourself – she's baaaack!
Harvard's poison ivy
Harvard discriminates against Asian-American students is revealing the messy ways that top-schools decide who gets admitted.
It's no surprise, legacies, donors' offspring and athletes, academic merit is often not the deciding factor. Yet most galling is the claim by Harvard's lawyer that "it is considered race, it is always considered in a positive way."
Even the Ivy Leaguer can figure that out.
Behind the bloat  Reader George Merrill asks the $ 80 billion question. He writes, "Florida and New York have similar-sized populations so you would think the cost of state services would be similar. However, this is not the case. The Florida budget is $ 88 billion while New York's is $ 168 billion.
"I find the government-provided services in Florida to be excellent. Therefore, it is a mystery to me why New York spends 90 percent more money to provide the same services.
My answer: Waste, fraud and abuse. Everything else is detail.
Stable door's shut
Nicholas Saridakis wants to answer my question about why President Trump would stoop to call Stormy Daniel's "Horseface."
He writes: "I no longer begrudge Trump his shots at
"Look where it's gotten us. The fools who hate trump can play the dignity game all they want. It no longer matters. "
