Krauthammer on Clinton:

What record? She’s had three major jobs. Secretary of state: Can you name a single achievement in four years? U.S. senator: Can you name a single achievement in eight years? First lady: her one achievement in eight years? Hillarycare, a shipwreck.

In reality, Hillary Clinton is running on two things: gender and name. Gender is not to be underestimated. It will make her the Democratic nominee. The name is equally valuable. It evokes the warm memory of the golden 1990s, a decade of peace and prosperity during our holiday from history.

Now breaking through, however, is a stark reminder of the underside of that Clinton decade: the chicanery, the sleaze, the dodging, the parsing, the wordplay. It’s a dual legacy that Hillary Clinton cannot escape and that will be a permanent drag on her candidacy.

You can feel it. It’s a recurrence of an old ailment. It was bound to set in, but not this soon. What you’re feeling now is Early Onset Clinton Fatigue.


Read the whole thing — I haven’t spoiled the punchline, which is epic.

Clinton knows and understands exactly what Krauthammer has said here. I went to PJM’s AP Images account to look for a new picture of HRC to illustrate this post (and because I’m mean like that), and there wasn’t a single image of her more recent than Tuesday’s horrific press conference. She popped up for a few minutes like Punxsutawney Phil, took a quick look around her, decided she didn’t like what she saw, then ducked back down into her hole.

People like Hillary better when she isn’t around — and isn’t that a helluva way to run a presidential campaign?

UPDATE: From the comments…

Hillary is compromised. Whatever was on her email server before being deleted, it currently resides only in Russian and Chinese archives.

What will she do as President when Putin or Xi threatens to release certain damaging information?
