Friday's HOT MIC
Try to control your mirth as Salon makes the case for... Hillary 2020!
1. Hillary Clinton is the Winston Churchill to Vladimir Putin's Adolf Hitler.
2. Hillary Clinton being elected president (at last) would monumentally piss off misogynistic trolls, and what's not to like about that?
3. By winning the popular vote convincingly in 2016, Hillary Clinton has earned the right to be considered the presumptive nominee in 2020.
Wait, wait! There's one more!
4. We can expect her to be a good president.
That ability to get things done, by the way, is why Clinton had high approval ratings as secretary of state (usually in the 60s), even proving more popular than President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in 2011 and 2012. Her stock may be low now, but it's been low in the past (such as when she "ran" to be first lady in 1992), and it has always recovered. Arguably the big political question facing a potential Hillary 2020 campaign will be whether that bounce occurs at a fortuitous moment for her. It very well could, and wouldn't that be a giant helping of the dish best served cold?
These people are certifiable.
