Be honest, before last night’s “historic” nomination of the Gangster Grandma, you never once associated the words “change maker” with the loathsome Hillary Clinton. Words such as “criminal,” “liar,” “untrustworthy,” “phony,” and “deceptive” are much more descriptive of the first presidential nominee under a cloud of FBI investigations.
So along came her husband, the guy who’s slept with hundreds of women while married to her, to call her a “change maker” during his long-winded speech.
The staff at the Democratic National Convention is very good at handing out props. Is Michelle Obama about to speak? Hand out the big cardboard sticks with MICHELLE in vertical letters. Is Meryl Streep about to congratulate the audience on making history? Make sure everybody has a HISTORY sign. Did anyone say STRONGER TOGETHER? Of course there’s a sign for that. And is Bill Clinton about to attempt to sell his wife, in national office or the national spotlight for a quarter-century, as a “change maker”? Distribute the CHANGE MAKER signs.
But convincing voters that Hillary Clinton is a CHANGE MAKER could be a lot harder than handing out placards.
The most recent Wall Street Journal/NBC poll asked respondents which of the following two descriptions of a candidate came closest to their preference. The first was “Someone who will bring major changes to the way government operates even if it is not possible to predict what the changes may be.” The second was “Someone who will bring a steady approach to the way government operates even if it means fewer changes to how things are now.”
It’ll take some doing on the part of Democrats to convince America she’s a so-called change maker. Besides, haven’t we just experienced eight years of change?

Maybe if you piece some letters together you can come up with change maker. Start with the “c” in criminal.
