Granny Clinton 2016: There’s No ‘I’ in Campaign, or Something

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speaks during a news conference at the United Nations in New York

Wait, there’s no “i” in campaign? Imagine the laughter and nonstop ridicule if Dan Quayle tried that one.

The second time around, Hillary Clinton is downsizing.

As she and a coterie of advisers prepare to launch her presidential campaign, their work is guided by a new set of humble principles: No big crowds. Few soaring rallies. Less mention of her own ambitions. And extinguish the air of inevitability propelling her candidacy.

Oh, and please, no questions about her secret emails, because there’s no “i” in email. Oh, wait.

The specific moment she jumps into the race remains a closely-guarded secret, even inside the crowded corridors of her small office suite in Manhattan, which new aides have descended upon to build the operation. Only a handful of confidantes actually know the precise time Clinton will pull the trigger — first on social media — yet aides have been instructed to be ready from Monday forward.

Pull the trigger? What is she, some kind of gun nut?

The early pieces of her strategy are starting to come into sharper view as the announcement nears. One of the most noticeable differences from her first campaign, according to more than a dozen people close to the Clintons, is a concerted effort to try and make her candidacy seem far less focused on her winning than on listening to the concerns of voters.

Good grief, another listening tour?

No ‘I’ in Clinton 2016

But Clinton has told her advisers that she intends to aggressively campaign as though she has a primary opponent, aides say, by listening to concerns of voters and taking great pains to avoid the appearance of a coronation.

Wait, there’s no “i” in Clinton, either? Could swear it’s the third letter.

“Reintroducing her is important because we want to make sure that the opposing party and even other Democrats aren’t able to cast the secretary in a light that just isn’t her,” Bakari Sellers, a South Carolina Democrat who ran for lieutenant governor in 2014, told CNN. “She has an amazing skill to connect with voters and we just have to give her that opportunity.”

This haughy, arrogant woman has an amazing skill to connect with voters? Really?

    There’s a Reggie Jackson quote about Billy Martin and George Steinbrenner that can easily be applied to the Clintons: “One’s a born liar, the other’s convicted.”

    The elephant in the room that no liberal has been able to answer yet is the simple question: What has she ever accomplished as either a U.S. Senator or Secretary of State?

    Spoiler alert – the only correct answer is that she remained married to Bill Clinton out of a lust for money and power. How are all of the liberal feminists going to rationalize their vote for a woman whose only claim to fame is clinging desperately to the coat tails of her husband, who has been cheating on her constantly for decades now?

    Post3: how could you forget her book, “It takes a village to raise a child,” during her time as Senator from New York. Typical Clinton , she hawked her book in France, on July 4th,on the dime of the taxpayers of New York.
