Hillary's Dilemma Or That Cheshire Cats Smile.
Hillary Clinton's campaign continues its slow, painful and oh so deliciously public decline. While there are indeed serious legal questions about her private email server and the DOJ and Congress may be conducting investigations, I have serious doubts that they have much real purpose beyond torpedoing her campaign. There are just to many bureaucrats in the DOJ and judges on the bench that were appointed by her husband who would place every conceivable obstacle in the way of her maleficence ever coming before a jury.
Beyond the above there are plenty of establishment Democrats who are fed up with the Clinton's and their holier than thou, take no prisoners style. I would compare it to the Democrats themselves leading the charge to pass term limits on the Presidency after FDR's death and the end of the war. Quite simply, it's a matter of "enough is enough".
Those private moments at Chapaqua must be excruciating. Hillary's seeing her self-entitled Presidency slip through her fingers yet again must be painful, both physically and emotionally. The thought of slipping into political irrelevance must be horrifying for her.
Not that she will blame herself or her blatent criminal incompetence for her demise, leftists never do. Introspection and or self doubt just are not part of the linier thought process of an American leftist. Like any leftist she will lash out at her enemies, both real and imagined, starting with her husband for having talked her into undertaking the fool's errand of another campaign. Next in line will be her staff for failing to sufficiently protect her from her own failings. Then will come an assault on the MSM for betraying her by not being sufficiently suplicant to her highness's entitlement to the crown.
With this last element having already been started with one of her staffers going so far as attacking the New York Times as have going over to the dark side and becoming a "(M)outhpiece for Republican propaganda" I can only imagine the vitriol and invictive being hurled about behind closed doors.
I can only speculate that there is one hell of a lot of schadenfreude going around, beginning with her Secret Service detachment whom she has always treated like something she had to scrape off the bottom of her shoe. Seeing that gleeful smirk on their faces as they overhear one of her tirades would be a picture that paints a thousand words. Next would be lower level members of her staff and the DNC that she has no doubt treated little better than her Secret Service body guards. The list only gets longer from there. I don't think there a lot of people around her the actually think "I feel your pain". Well except maybe Bill or some staffer who didn't duck quickly enough to dodge the closest in reach object she threw at them.
As for the rest of us, her political demise can't come soon enough. It will be something akin to the moment after Hitler pulled the trigger in his bunker in Berlin. For many of the staff the first thing they did was take out a cigarette and light it up. A physical act of saying "Thank god that's finally over, can we get the hell out of here now? "
Exile to Chapaqa may be like being locked in gilded cage. But I can't help but think that the combined isolation and hearing Bill's bimbos squeal in the guest cottage (there would no longer be any impediments to his full on debautchery) would be its own special kind oh so richly deserved hell.
