I think it's safe to say that while Hillary Clinton is done being president, she'll continue to occasionally beclown herself and her party for years to come. And as long as she's publishing books, appearing on talk shows, and tweeting about social issues and current events, conservatives will be happy to note her activities in passing. Even though progressives really wish they wouldn't, and keep trying to pretend its the conservatives' fault she won't go away. In a sense, which I alluded to above, she is both done and not done. Not so much like the physicist's feline, as like an undead Elder God of the Democratic party.

Kind of like Jimmy Carter.

As opposed to a person who isn't done being president, who'll continue to constantly beclown himself and his party for years to come.

What about all those many months before Hillary published her book?

Trump vis-a-vis H. Clinton is like the used car salesman who can't stop telling everyone about their big touchdown as a high school half-back 20 years earlier. But then again, Trump can't afford to have Hillary "done." He needs her as someone to blame for his mistakes.

BTW: was I correct in my answer to your question as to who bumped the thread?

Do you know the old joke about the guy being shown Rorschach blots by his psychiatrist? For every blot the patient says, "I see two people having sex." At the end of the session the psychiatrist says, "I think you may be a bit obsessed with sex." The patient is very offended and replies, "Hey, you're the one with the dirty pictures!"

Scientist Sam Wang believes the game is over for Donald Trump Getty
A survey*from the Princeton Election Consortium has found that Hillary Clinton has a 99 per cent chance of winning the election over Donald Trump.
Three days before the election, Ms Clinton has a projected 312 electoral votes, compared to 226 for Mr Trump. A total of 270 electoral votes are needed to win.
The probability statistic was found by the university’s statistical Bayesian model.

Hillary Clinton is indeed done. Has been done for quite a while already.

... unlike this thread, which for some reason, keeps going despite that fact.

Ex-DNC chair Donna Brazile describes how Clinton seized control of the Democratic party long before the primaries:
Quote:
The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook with a copy to Marc Elias—specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised. Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings.

Don't forget that while Killary had the DNC in her pocket already, she was plotting to get the media to cover the more extreme "pied piper" GOP candidates - like Teh Donald - to make them look as representing the opponent. As Assange is pointing out. She got what she wanted, the stupid turd.

Is this satire? If not how would this stand out from the usual politics involved in running for office? I don't see this as immoral or stupid: you try to focus public discussion on the most negative aspects of the opponent party. And indeed her opponent for the election was....

Are you suggesting that Hillary's focus on Trump helped him obtain the Republican nomination? If so I would be curious as to the evidence for this.

I'm thinking that this little excerpt isn't going to be getting a lot of airtime or other exposure by certain media outlets.

It's in the leaked emails referenced by Assange in my link. The campaign used their influence with the media to deliver Trump some of the huge amount of free bad publicity on which he rode. The stupidity is not in the attempt to shine bad light on opponents, but in her gross misinterpretation of the effects, and of her own standing. As to "immoral" ... we shouldn't talk about morality in connection to Killary.

It isn't even cute how thin-skinned you lot are about the continuation of talking about Killary. It's outright revealing. No, the world will not stop for many years to discuss the events leading up to the guy you are so conditioned to hate becoming the legitimately elected "leader of the free world", if you are into that kind of terminology. No blank slate for you.

It has nothing to do with being thin skinned, it has to do with this being a pointless distraction. Why is there any reason to keep bringing up a has been politician that has quit politics after losing to a idiot like Trump? I mean seriously, what is the point in it? I don't recall people still bringing up McCain or Kerry or Romney nearly a year after their loses, heck even Gore had been allowed to toddle off into the sunset by now, and that was a very controversial Election.

Hillary is done, she lost, she's quit politics, it's over, you're beating a dead horse. Stop wasting your time and get involved in something that is actually important.

Yeah, Gore, that's decades ago now, and you have more than enough Trump threads to express your hate.

Just let us with a longer attention span work to feature the long but straight way to locking her up in a Siberian labour camp. Together with her shills. There she can finally bee queen.

It has nothing to do with being thin skinned, it has to do with this being a pointless distraction. Why is there any reason to keep bringing up a has been politician that has quit politics after losing to a idiot like Trump? I mean seriously, what is the point in it?
I will stipulate that the main motivation for Trump to emphasize it now is distraction.

But to be fair, are there not many preaching that the whole “Russia Thing” has the higher goal of shining a light on all forms of foreign involvement in US elections? For all parties involved?

As such, should we not also pay attention to Democratic wrongdoing as well as Republican? If not wearing partisan blinders, that is.

True. Could just be a convenient obsession.

Yeah, two lame, recycled Hillary pseudo-scandals in two weeks -- very distracting for people who desperately want to be distracted.

Elizabeth Warren admitting that the 2016 primary was rigged a few days ago is a "recycled" pseudo-scandal??

Better check under your bed tonight. Hillary might be under there.


And check the smoke detector. The LED safety light might have been replaced by a webcam from one of Hill's Shills™.
