Hillary’s Long Goodbye

Hillary’s email from www.caglecartoons.com # 167682By Noemie Emery

Which Democrat will be the one to play Barry Goldwater to the Richard M. Nixon of Hillary Clinton? Who will step up to tell the self-wounded one-time colossus that the time has arrived to go home?

On August 7, 1974, Goldwater and the Republican leaders of the House and the Senate called on the president and told him he had lost the support of his party in Congress. The next day, Nixon told the country that he would be leaving his office, and the day after that, he resigned.

Coming on top of the pay-to-play scandals surrounding the Clinton Foundation and the embarrassing, extravagant sums she demands for her speeches, the criminal investigation into the scrubbed secret server maintained and surrendered by the former first lady may make her a burden too great for her party to carry. In a recent poll of registered voters, 58 percent say Hillary lied about the emails and 54 percent believe that she weakened the country’s security. Since the main task of the president is securing the country, this doesn’t bode well.

But worse than the cost of what already happened is the prospect of what still may come. “Until a month ago, one of the arguments I frequently heard … was that that she’d been vetted like nobody’s ever been vetted,” wrote Frank Bruni in March. “All the skeletons had been tugged from the Clintons’ labyrinthine closets. All the mud had been dug up and flung.”

Who can swear there’s not even more fresh new mud where that came from, ready to start fresh new media frenzies? With the server now in the hands of the government, there’s the continuing prospect of fresh new developments from now through November of 2016. News could break during the primaries, after the primaries, during the conventions or shortly before the opening of the polls. Can one run a campaign while under indictment? We may be about to get an answer.    (my emphasis)
