Skip to comments.Chicago Tribune: Hillary can't win. She's the establishment candidate in year of insurgency.

Hillary Clinton will not be elected president of the United States.
Why? Because she can't win, that's why.
And the sooner you figure this out, the calmer you will be.
She wants desperately to win. She's endured painful decades of Bill, years of Barack, eating all the insults like so many sins and swallowing them down as the price of her ambition. It's all there in the dull weight of her eyes.
But I just don't see Hillary winning this election, because she's the lone candidate of the establishment in a year of insurgency.
Common wisdom and her fierce Clinton tribalists will probably want me burned at the stake for heresy, or chemically altered, or maybe just being hanged from the Tribune Tower will do.
But this is an insurgent year. And she's the Empress dowager of the Washington establishment.
Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders isn't an establishment creature. And on the Republican side, economic nationalist and self-funding Donald Trump and conservative Ted Cruz are definitely not establishment. Cruz and Trump have been at war with their party. The GOP establishment needs Cruz now but they don't like him.
And they're angry with Trump because he won't take their money, although in the last Republican debate Trump did something brilliant. He suggested he may be open to fundraisers if he's the Republican nominee, smartly giving those money boys an opening. This was missed by the media in all the talk of Trump's new tone. But the insiders certainly noticed. All they want is access. By hinting that he may allow it after the Republican convention, Trump means to charm them into leashing their dogs.
That leaves Hillary Clinton, with her massive fundraising, her Party insider status, Wall Street speeches bringing more cash, the Clinton Foundation clout, the connections foreign and domestic.

Hillary the Liar can’t possibly win unless the GOP-E throws the third election in a row (which they appear to be desperately trying to do)
is it possible to serve as president from federal prison?
HILLARY FOR PRISON, 2016... COUGH COUGH.....COUGH....COUGH..COUGH.
And she hasn’t even started cheating yet...
The GOPe would rather serve in Hell than rule in Heaven.
And she SCREECHES.
The only way Hillary could have won was if the
GOP Designated Loser was as pathetic as ¡Yeb!
Unless the RNC/GOP find a way yet to nominate the Joyful Tippy-toes Tortoise Hillary is going to lose.
SHE can truly say this is from her own home town - unlike obozo who doesn’t have a clue where his home town is tho’ he claims it’s Chicago!!
The ever lyin’ Hildabeast will be shown a nice executive suite in an orange jump suit. Go home to BJ Bill Hildabeast, you will never be president.
Dream until you dreams come true....
Right there with you.
I suspect the Trump campaign will not only tie her to Obama’s third term but to Washington DC in general.
And, let’s face it, Hillary is the poster child for everything people hate about Establishment politicians
Hillary and Jeb are the poster children of “my turn” entitlement.
From the Liberal (once a stalwart conservative) paper like the Chicago Tribune no less.
