My latest column is up at AND Magazine.
Here is an excerpt:
Over the weekend, Hillary Clinton officially announced her presidential campaign in one of the lamest campaign commercials of all time.
Personally, I can understand why millions of Americans are ready for Hillary?to go away. But I’m confused as to why anyone would want Hillary Rodham Clinton to be President of the United States. Heck, the only real reason anyone has thrown out for why Hillary should run for President is because after her stinging defeat in 2012, “it’s her turn.”
As a conservative, I find it comforting that the only legitimate reason anyone can seem to find for supporting Hillary is the same reason they had for Romney in 2012.
Although, to be fair, Hillary does have a long and storied history Washington politics. Prior to her marriage to Bill Clinton, she had no great claim to fame other than doing some work on the Watergate investigation?and rumor has it that she may have been fired for unethical behavior. She rode Bill’s coattails all the way to the White House. Along the way, she became embroiled in a few scandals…Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate, the “suicide” of Vince Foster,missing Rose Law Firm documents, and so on. In fact, her most notable accomplishment as First Lady was her talent for reciting the words “I don’t recall” when questioned about her various scandals.
