"We're tired of the 90s"
Yesterday's Politico Playbook led with snips from Hillary Clinton's book that are unintentionally hilarious:
--Chapter 1, "2008: Team of Rivals," p. 12-13: "Bill's cell phone rang. When he answered he heard the voice of the President-elect, who told him he wanted to talk to both of us. Bill explained that we were in the middle of a nature preserve and needed to call back when we got home. When we got back to our house .. [t]he President-elect picked [Bill's] brain about possible members of the economic team ... Then he told Bill that he was looking forward to getting together with me sometime soon."
1. Bill Clinton refuses to take Barack Obama's call just after he'd been elected president in 2008. Think about that. And it is self-evident he can't blame bad cell phone coverage.
2. Even in Hillary's own telling, Obama wasn't interested in her judgment of "possible members of the economic team." Of course Bill Clinton needs his ego stroked, but Obama could and should've at least pretended to care about Hillary's opinion. Nope.
Over the past year, as I've traveled around our country once again, the one question I'm asked more than any other is: Will I run for President in 2016? [SPOILER ALERT!] The answer is, I haven't decided yet. ... Having run for President before, I understand exactly how challenging it is on every front – not only on candidate but on their families as well.
"And having lost in 2008, I know that nothing is guaranteed, nothing can be taken for granted."
You know who says "nothing is guaranteed, nothing can be taken for granted?" In my experience, it is just about always from entitled people who feel like they should be able to take it for granted.
If you don't feel entitled to it, then you'd never say something like "nothing is guaranteed, nothing can be taken for granted."
Hillary's faux-indecision on running for president is silly.
