In an effort to break the ultimate glass ceiling in 2016 Hillary Clinton`s reputation was shattered. Hillary should have become a hermit after the humiliation of losing to the most unqualified presidential candidate in history, but instead she` had a book tour, hit the lecture circuit, and now she even has the unmitigated gall of hinting at another presidential run.
In two short years Donald Trump has almost destroyed our democracy, but I give him credit for destroying the Bush and Clinton dynasties.
There is zero chance that Jeb Bush will run for president again, and there`s no room in the Democratic Party for the likes of Hillary. There is a vanguard of credible Democratic female candidates for president (Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Kamala Harris) who are unencumbered by the moral corruption that Hillary embodies and represents.
Hillary is too old, too corrupt, too unlikable and too moderate for today`s Democratic Party. It`s not just this old curmudgeon who`s written her off, according to the NH Journal poll 55 percent of New Hampshire Democrats believe that Sen. Warren best represents the Democratic Party, Democratic-Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came in second at 28 percent. A minuscule 17 percent said that Hillary was the best representation of the current party.
I`m a baby boomer so perhaps I won`t be accused of being ageist when I say that Hillary, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden and Donald Trump are too freaking old to be president.
For God`s sake let`s pass on the torch to a Kamala Harris or a Kirsten Gillibrand. Biden and Sanders can serve as elder statesmen nurturing the new generation of Democratic candidates. Hillary can just disappear, we don`t need to hear a peep from her.
