Now that Benghazi is rapidly receding in the Clinton machine’s rearview mirror and the fix appears to be in regarding those damn emails, the queen in waiting can focus on picking out the Oval Office drapes. It is with the establishment’s latest skirmish in the never-ending war on Trump taking the attention off of her that Hillary and her occupiers in waiting can start to prepare for her official coronation come January. That is at least what a prominently featured story in the damned liberal New York Times is reporting with a gushing account of how the nation’s first female president would conduct herself in office.
If she ends up taking the oath of office the NYT piece – which may as well have been written by Team Clinton flacks – has her packing her cabinet with affirmative action picks like Apple CEO Tim Cook to represent gays and more than half of her top staff positions filled by women. One of those women would likely be Attorney General Loretta Lynch whose meeting with Bill Clinton on an airplane in Phoenix had all the markings of impropriety and corruption in high places. She would also work with R.A.T.’s like Paul Ryan and would turn discussions into boozy get-togethers like when she tossed down the vodka with warmongering old coot John McCain.
According to the extensive New York Times article entitled “‘President Hillary Clinton?’ She Wants Progress on Immigration and to Drink With G.O.P.”:
Should she win the presidency, Hillary Clinton would quickly try to find common ground with Republicans on an immigration overhaul and infrastructure spending, risking the wrath of liberals who would like nothing more than to twist the knife in a wounded opposition party.
In her first 100 days, she would also tap women to make up half of her cabinet in hopes of bringing a new tone and collaborative sensibility to Washington, while also looking past Wall Street to places like Silicon Valley for talent — perhaps wooing Sheryl Sandberg from Facebook, and maybe asking Tim Cook from Apple to become the first openly gay cabinet secretary.
Mrs. Clinton would even schmooze differently than the past few presidents have. Not one to do business over golf or basketball, she would bring back the intimate style of former Presidents Ronald Reagan and Lyndon B. Johnson, negotiating over adult beverages. Picture a steady stream of senators, congressmen and other leaders raising a glass and talking policy in the Oval Office with her and her likely chief of staff, John D. Podesta, as her husband pops in with a quick thought or a disarming compliment.
Deeply confident that she would perform better as the president than as a political candidate, Mrs. Clinton wants to pursue a whole new approach at the White House to try to break through years of partisan gridlock, according to a dozen campaign advisers and allies who described her goals and outlook. From policy goals and personnel to her instinct for patiently cultivating the enemy, Mrs. Clinton thinks she would be a better dealmaker than President Obama if she finds willing partners on the other side.
A Clinton presidency could herald in a new era of bipartisanship as the corrupt establishment would be in celebratory mode after successfully fending off Donald Trump and his America first policies. But the likely elevation of Democrat hack John Podesta of the flaming liberal think tank the Center for American Progress should be an indication to conservatives that they should harbor no illusions of anything other than a continuation of Obama’s leftist policies. If she does win – largely with an assist from the Never Trumpers on the GOP side of the aisle – expect the Supreme Court to be backed with incandescently flaming liberal ideologues which would bode very badly for the next generation of rulings of consequence.
The NYT piece goes on:
Some liberals think Mr. Trump will be so destructive to the Republican Party that it will be severely weakened after the November election — and that Mrs. Clinton, as the Democratic leader, should keep her boot on its neck rather than try to play nice and find compromises. Mr. Sanders remains worried that she would abandon progressive ideals to do business with Republicans and has yet to endorse her. Mrs. Clinton has spoken intensely about progressive policies, but she has long wanted to erase the caricature of herself as a partisan warrior — a “feminazi,” as one 1990s phrase went.
She hopes to reassure progressives with her executive actions, which would also include new protections for undocumented immigrant parents, as well as her personnel appointments. Having women make up half of her cabinet would be historic (in recent years, a quarter to a third of cabinet positions have been held by women), and Democrats close to Mrs. Clinton say she may decide to retain Ms. Lynch, the nation’s first black woman to be attorney general, who took office in April 2015.
The article smacks of the arrogance that has fueled the entitled Clintons ever since they slithered out of the White House in early 2001 and one can only imagine the horrors if Hillary is indeed elected POTUS. If Lynch is indeed retained then it will have all of the makings of a quid pro quo deal once the email investigation has been torpedoed but short of beating back the Clinton crime family at the ballot box in five months there will be nothing that Americans can do about such a travesty.
