When Hillary Clinton truly lost the election

Hillary Clinton is apparently blaming her defeat in the US presidential election on interventions by the FBI director James Comey. Well . . yes. His cryptic warnings about what the 3.5 million e-mails sent from Clinton’s private server when she was Secretary of State might or might not have contained — and so soon before the election itself — must have had some effect. But it would only have been mildly marginal.

The damage had already been done. It was her enthusiasm in making a fortune for the Clinton family fund after husband Bill’s term of office ended. This didn’t sit well with many in the Democratic Party, particularly among the poorer members. What put the tin hat on it was when it was revealed not long before the election that she had “earned” (!) $800,000 giving a speech to Goldman Sachs, followed by another with similar payment to JPMorgan. That was when she truly lost the election.

  1. Hi, Keith;

    ‘Radix malorum est cupiditas’. And she certainly was malorum. Plus, there was just a soupçcon of overweening pride/ambition. I learned all about the latter in my classics course in college. I think some of the ancient Greek kings/nobles had a bit of a problem with that, too. If I remember correctly, their pride “wenteth before a fall”. We can’t forget the equal amount of malorum, pride and ambition in her equally arrogant and corrupt hubby.

    To tell you the truth, I think both of them are zombies/walking dead. You can’t get rid of them. They just keep coming back.

    No, I didn’t vote for Donald Trump. I voted for Jill Stein. I’m a Democrat, but I’m thinking…

    Cheers,
    Helene

  2. There are a number of FBI investigations underway around Hillary and Bill and the Foundation. Good to get the Clintons out of politics and public life. One good thing about Trump: he blocked Hillary from the White House.
