It Was Just A Matter of Time
Here we go again, the conservatives are trying to make trouble again. If you click on the link and take a look around the site, you’ll see what I mean. The ads are the same ads you’ll see over on DickMorris.com. And that’s never a good thing.
I’m all for Hillary Clinton being on the top of the ticket in 2012 but the fact is, it ain’t gonna happen the way that righty blog says it is going to happen. I also can’t help but wonder if some of those folks are projecting their intense hatred of all things Obama onto Hillary, and assuming that simply because of the divisiveness of the 2008 primary, she hates Obama as much as they do. The problem is, as we have all seen, Secretary Clinton and President Obama don’t seem to dislike each other at all. In fact, they seemed to have worked out their differences long, long ago and have even forged a very good working relationship. So the idea that she would jump in and challenge Obama in 2012 even if it meant ripping apart the Democratic party in the process, just isn’t plausible given her incredible loyalty to the Democrats and her past and present history of being the consummate team player. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to play defense for the Democratic party, which disgusts me about 97% of the time. I’m just looking at how Hillary put the ill will and injustice of the 2008 primaries behind her for the good of the party and I just don’t see how that translates into this notion of a rematch.
I am also incredibly suspect of the fact that many of these rumors are originating on conservative blogs. I think they are just trying to stir sh*t up.
Now, If Obama were to say “gee, I’m not so good at this whole President thing, so I’m just going to give someone
with much more experience and acumen else a shot in 2012″ then hey, go Hillary! But again, and I feel the need to say this- whatever decision she makes about staying on at State or running for any other public office, I’d respect. At this stage of the game, Hillary should do what Hillary wants to do.
