2016 Presidential Horse Race: Hillary Clinton is Inevitable
Commentary by Marc Platt
I was wrong in 2012. I thought there might be some health concerns and that maybe Mrs. Clinton shouldn't run for U.S. President in 2016 or any other year, due to her age, etc...
On October 22, Hillary Clinton blew all of that out of the water with her 10+ hour grilling by the oober-partisan Benghazi Committee and their out-for-blood right wing zealots. The Republicans HANDED former Secretary-of-State Hillary Clinton the keys to the White House with their backfiring witch hunt.
The former New York U.S. Senator/First Lady/Secretary of State was a far better politician than all of the GOP members on that ill-fated committee who tried to get her at every turn.
America and the rest of the world saw a woman in her late 60's easily handle the scrutiny and anger for 10+ hours. What the Republicans failed to realize was that with each passing hour of their "inquisition" Hillary Clinton was showing that she could stand up for herself and her country.
The GOP weakened any possible general election candidate.
This will be an electoral landslide in November, 2016. Someone like maybe Marco Rubio could make it closer than the rest of that clown car running, but there sure are a lot of women voters out there who saw Hillary Clinton looking awesome under the most remarkable of circumstances. America loves an underdog and that is exactly what the Republicans did in that hearing, they made Hillary Clinton an underdog.
It is over, finished, kaput...Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the first woman elected U.S. President. She seems up to the job and the entire world got to witness the reasons why on an October day on Capitol Hill.
Joe Biden would have been a welcome addition to the field, but he is also a smart politician. VP Biden knows the Clintons are a very tough outfit to outsmart. Now the rest of the world knows why, as well.
