(Update 062515: Enter Bernie Sanders. So… may be a buffoon.)
Not a Buffoon.
Time for some plain talk here folks.
Hillary Clinton has lost her supposed claim to the Democrat Nomination for President of the United States.
It is clear to her, and those close to her, that she will face a Primary Challenge. While this was obviously not hoped for as she would have saved vast sums of donor dollars which could be spent in the General Election facing, odds are, some Evil Republican MAN… (Note: White doesn’t matter this time. (Of course, neither can being Old.))
It just is what it is.
Enter Martin O’Malley.
The former Governor from Maryland will not pose much of a foil for Hillary’s attempt to appear ‘Centrist’ and ‘Reasonable’. This guy will self-destruct prematurely. As far as I’m concerned he’s already old news.
How about Native American Liz Warren? While the hairy, man-hater, clubs across the country would love, love, love to see Warren run, she’s also not serious enough to help Hillary fit into a Rational Pant Suit. And besides… girl on girl primary fighting does not fluff the War on Women narrative Hillary will need to cling to during the General… when she’s running against, odds are, an Evil Republican MAN… (White Doesn’t matter this time.)
The name to watch?
While Webb is guilty of writing some Odd Porn…
That’s about it.
The rest of his Progressive Leftist Resume is solid… for a Socialist.
Military Vet-Marine, former Secretary of the Navy, Author, Hates Bush (The former president), subscribes to the Individual being Forced to sacrifice to the Group, and… convinced he’s Smarter than You… Perfect. (Add to that the Odd Porn issue will most likely be considered a resume enhancement by Liberals.)
If Hillary is Hoping to assume the Presidency, she is going to have to come out of a serious Primary with a victory over a ‘serious’ opponent the likes of Webb.
Grab the popcorn.
And the beer.
