Hillary Clinton’s quiet campaign for President
Washington Times ^ | April 6, 2013 | Lisa M. Ruth

Posted on 04/06/2013 10:41:36 AM PDT by Zakeet

Hillary Clinton is running for President in 2016. Her silence gives it away.

Rand Paul made his intentions clear by boisterously launching a filibuster against CIA appointee John Brennan and making a stand on immigration. He has been on the cover of newspapers and magazines, making proactive speeches and commenting on the statements of others. He is, clearly, positioning for a run in 2016.

Hillary Clinton is taking a different, quieter, approach.

[Snip]

Clinton knows what the campaign will look like and how hard it will be. She knows she could retire and speak on talk shows and conference circuit, write her book and maybe even relax.

But Hillary Clinton also likely feels the pull of destiny, the possibility of winning the presidency, the possibility of redemption.

Clinton is building, quietly and carefully. Last week, long-time Clinton ally James Carville talked in glowing terms about Hillary Clinton and her capabilities. He discussed the Super PAC, Ready for Hillary that is trying to lure her into running in 2016 and how the group is trying to build grass-roots support for Clinton. Clinton stepped out of politicking when she became Secretary of State, he explained, so the Super PAC is working to rebuild her political base. It is also, of course, raising money.

Carville’s public appearances also reminded the public Clinton is still here, still viable.

We do not yet know when or how Clinton will announce her candidacy, but we do know it will not be accidental or unplanned.

The GOP needs to get its act together NOW.

Stop sending jobs to China.

Bring back US jobs. Cut down on welfare. Build up AMERICA for a change.

Now. This cannot wait.

America first.

The DemocRATS are ready to play their second stringers. Hillary came in second up against their boy, Barry Soetoro. He cleared the way for incompetence in the White House. It’s ready for Slick Willie’s wife now. If Barry can do it, anybody can. Low information voters unite! Your party needs you!

There are too many stupid people in America and if Clinton is the Dem nominee, it will be women, women, women, victims, victims, victims. I have a friend in Indiana who went to a salon the week of the last election and her stylist told her that “If Romney gets elected, he will fire all female employees. I need my job.” When my friend told her sister, that person also said she heard that, too, and “that is why Obama needs to be elected.” Can you imagine what will happen if Princess Clinton is elevated to the nominee?

It’s my belief that Hillary’s health problems are more serious than what the public has been led to believe. The media will do their best to keep this quiet, just as they did with FDR during his campaign for a 4th term. However, if she has some sort of episode in a public setting, they won’t be able to gloss over this issue.

She should be boasting about her diplomatic successes as Sec of State - stopping Iranian nuclear development, arab spring, Benghazi, etc. /sarc

You may well be correct, and of course she could be debilitated before 2016.

If not I think she’s a lock for the Dem nomination, taking out SlowJoe and Cuomo early in the primaries.

I do not think Hillary has decided yet, but I think that articles like this are meant to pressure her to decide to.

She will win, and will be nearly a big a disaster as Barry - perhaps even bigger. Count on it.

Let's see...the media, academia, Hollywood, and the democRAT party want Hillary to be president.

All of the forgoing cults hate Sarah Palin.

Maybe Sarah Palin should be the first female president?

I think the demographic tides mean little hope for Republicans in the POTUS race.

Our only hope might be billionaire egomaniac Bloomie running as an indy and we pull off a Clintonian plurality win.

Unfortunately Bloomie and the Clintons are allies, so if Hillary is the Dem nominee, little chance Bloomie would torpedo her.

As if it wouldn’t be bad enough to have another Socialist POTUS to nail shut America’s coffin, the thought of Bubba back in the White House with time on his hands is intolerable. Cigars for my “friends.”

They mean little hope if fewer and fewer whites continue to vote despite their stable growth in absolute numbers.

"Redemption"?

She can't undo everything she has done up till now. She can't unkill Vince Foster, unborrow the FBI files, uncollaborate with her husband in all of his misdeeds, or unkidnap Elian Gonzalez.

If the GOP tries to force another liberal candidate like McCain and Romney down our throats (ala Bush, Christie), or a candidate which the Supreme Court dodges the eligibility question for (ala Rubio, Jindal), then not only will Hillary run ... she'll win.

She will definitely run, but she is beatable. The little known secret is that she isn’t that good of a leader or manager. Obama beat her in the primaries. Yes, he probably cheated in some, but he also just plain out managed her.

You are absolutely correct. Many of her supporters have publicly stated that she was best Secretary of State in the history of the United States

I agree with you that Hillary’s health is too poor for her to serve as President and that a long campaign would probably highlight her poor health. Those falls that she took had nothing to do with a bout of flu. The fall on the steps of the airplane were before the flu. I do think that Hillary has not admitted this to herself and is still planning on running in 2016, though.

It would be interesting to know what her father died of.

And I also feel (my hunch) she has a drinky-poo problem that needs to be cleaned up first.

In any regard, lots of dirt covered up by the media that can be exposed easily.

You are right people who put Hillary Clinton as best Secretary of State in US History, better than Jay, Jefferson, Monroe, Seward, Marshall, Rogers, and Baker will be likely Hillary voters.

I was about to comment that her periodic disappearances from public over the next few years will be to accompany a probably ongoing regimen of plastic surgery,although at this point it kinda needs a come-along for best results.

However I too think she has larger neurological/alcoholism issues.
