If you listened to the Clinton political machine back in early 2008, the queen in waiting was as invincible as the 18-0 New England Patriots who only had to beat the upstart New York Giants in the Super Bowl to make history. The heavily favored Patriots choked, going down 17-14 to a wild-card team in one of the greatest upsets ever. Just a little more than four months after the Pats collapsed, Hillary Clinton conceded the Democratic party nomination to a young hustler from Chicago named Barack Obama. It was a crushing humiliation to an anal retentive narcissist who was hellbent on making history as the first female U.S. president and haunts her to this day. Now, with the Dems having made what in hindsight appears to be a catastrophic decision to go all in on Hillary even though she would take the whole party down with her if she imploded again, history is on the verge of repeating itself.
Beset by problems of her own creation as well as her not exactly being a likeable person (translation: bitch on wheels), Hillary is going down in flames and the Hillemmings are frantically looking to lay their hands on fire extinguishers. With Vice President Joe “Foghorn Leghorn” Biden having received Emperor Obama’s blessing to challenge the Clinton crime family for the nomination, Hillary is going into full out bitch mode. It’s like that line from the Clint Eastwood western The Outlaw Josey Wales about getting “plumb mad dog mean” and Mrs. Clinton is ready to chop off old Joe’s balls with a pair of rusty garden shears before he gains any sort of momentum.
As reported by the Associated Press via Yahoo News in the story “Before Nation's Top Democrats, Clinton Sends Biden a Message”:
In ways both subtle and blunt, Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign is sending a message to Vice President Joe Biden about his potential presidential campaign: This won't be easy.
While Clinton and her team speak warmly of Biden in public, they have taken steps to make clear how they've taken control of the party's establishment in hopes of discouraging the vice president from entering the race.
The latest came Friday in the most public of settings: the Democratic National Committee summer meetings. In a speech to the party's most committed activists, Clinton cast herself as its standard-bearer and vowed to win the presidential race and rebuild the party from the ground up.
"We are building something that will last long after next November," Clinton told party officials gathered in a Minneapolis ballroom. "Other candidates may be fighting for a particular ideology, but I'm fighting for you and your families."
The speech came after her team rolled out a string of high-profile endorsements in early-voting states and scheduled an onslaught of fundraisers across the country in the effort to ice a Biden bid before he even gets started.
Behind the scenes, they're pressuring donors and delegates to pledge their loyalty to Clinton. Her team sent a slate of top aides to the meeting this weekend armed with pledge cards asking party delegates to commit to Clinton.
It’s not surprising that Clinton would be exacting loyalty pledges in that she is “left” in exactly the same way that Joseph Stalin was. Bloomberg News is reporting that Team Hillary already has locked up hundreds of superdelegates in a preemptive move to squash any and all competition well in advance of next year’s primaries in the story entitled "Clinton Camp Says One-Fifth of Delegates Secured for Nomination":
As Hillary Clinton's campaign seeks to project dominance in a field that could soon include Vice President Joe Biden, her top advisers are touting a decisive edge on a little-discussed metric: superdelegate commitments.
At the Democratic National Committee meeting in Minneapolis, where Clinton spoke on Friday, senior Clinton campaign officials are claiming that she has already secured one-fifth of the pledges needed to win the Democratic presidential nomination. They come from current and former elected officials, committee officeholders, and other party dignitaries.
The campaign says that Clinton currently has about 130 superdelegates publicly backing her, but a person familiar with recent conversations in Minneapolis said that officials are telling supporters and the undecided in the last few days that private commitments increase that number to more than 440—about 20 percent of the number of delegates she would need to secure the nomination.
So as far as the Dems go it’s just fuck the debates, the caucuses and the primaries because it is already a done deal and the Clinton machine doesn’t give a rat’s ass about what the voters think - everyone owes this to her for dry-dicking her in 2008. But while Hillary and her army of supporters are manning the ramparts and boiling up industrial sized cauldrons of hot pitch, the feds are closing in on her over those mysterious State Department emails.
Reports have surfaced that the FBI may be contemplating whether to invoke the archaic World War I Espionage Act – a favorite of the Obama goon squads over at the Justice Department - against Mrs. Clinton. Barry and Hillary have never exactly been enamored of each other, especially after 2008 and in the waning days of his second damnable term he may be looking to once again piss on her parade by unleashing the attack dogs on her ass in order to put his thumb on the scale for Biden.
This shit is getting pretty fucking interesting right about now, be sure to have plenty of popcorn on hand for what is going to be one hell of a show.
