What will be her next act?

Hillary said goodbye to the State Department yesterday.  While there will be endless speculation of her running in 2016, I think it would be a mistake to table our anger and disappointment over what is happening now in order to focus on a savior in four years.  I’m going to continue to pay attention to what’s going on in the present and assume that she isn’t going to run.

What will she do now?  No clue but there are very few women with the authority mojo of Hillary Clinton.  What the country desperately needs right now is to see a woman who has the riveting attention grabbing power of a man.  Someone who can be linked to from multiple blogs and op/ed pages with regularity.  Someone who shows up in the Plumline all the fricking time based on what she says and knowing that what she says comes from a place of experience, knowledge and doing her homework.  We need a powerful voice that comes from a woman but does not come from a “feminine” point of view, if you get my drift.

So, if I were her and the New York Times offered me a gig on the op/ed page, I’d probably take it.  I mean, among all the other things I had planned before breakfast.

Just sayin’.

Here’s the State Department farewell:

  1. Good idea, I was going to suggest the Supreme Court but, there, she would be one of nine and Hillary is singular.
    I’ve never seen anything like that Foggy Bottom send off; the look on those shining young-they seemed mostly quite young-faces was beautiful.
    Have you heard that their nickname for Hillary is “Glinda” as in the good witch? I love that.

  2. By the way, look instead of looks was intentional; they all had the same look—admiration bordering on adoration.
    Kerry’s got big sensible pumps to fill.

  3. After writing a couple books Hillary will use her connections to those most powerful of the women and girls that she met in all those cities, towns and villages throughout her travels on those million miles. She will seek them out and empower them to make strides in small ways and large.
    Hillary’s legacy will to be a woman who actually changed the world for the better.
    Nothing less is in store for her.

    Rise Hillary Rise.

  4. Thank you for posting this video. The respect and regard in which the State Department employees hold SOS Clinton is so evident and moving. It made my day. 🙂

  5. As much as she knows about political warfighting, wherever she goes will be her informed choice of where she can do the most irreversible good as she sees it.
    Meanwhile, I will short-term second guess her just enough to suppose she will take a nice long rest till she feels totally rested enough to do whatever she decides is next.

  6. From all the available evidence HRC is already running for 2016. Given a male Republican opponent of even the slightest respectability, I cannot seen any significant number of Republicans voting for her. And as this link says, her Democratic base is definitely not solid.


    At age 69, she’d be too old. Biden is, of course, worse on the age account.

    The Republicans will be running a pair of their “stars”. Notice how Scott Brown isn’t running for the Senate? IMO he’s going for the big prize, or at least VP on the ticket.

    I’ll be candid enough to admit that if the Power Elites want HRC to be president, she’ll be “in like Flynn”. I doubt that’s the case. They’re counting on BHO to start the destruction of the “untouchables” like Social Security and Medicare. I believe they’ll want somebody even more to the right to finish the job.

    If BHO does what he wants to do, the Democrats will be a very tarnished brand come 2016. Not that HE cares….

    • From what I have read, there is absolutely no evidence that Hillary Clinton is planning to run in 2016. All websites claiming the contrary are doing so independently of her. In other words, they are in dream mode and keeping the websites up and running for unknown reasons that have nothing to do with her.

      So, all this endless speculation about her 2016 is not, I repeat, NOT, going to get any traction on this site. If I see too much of this idle speculation and attempts to rally the troops to wait 4 years for the savior that is never going to come, I will take steps to delete those comments.

      I will not let this site devolve into some pointless Waiting for Hillary placeholder.

      • This is a thread titled “What will be her next act?”

        It praises HRC to the heavens, but ‘assumes’ she’s not going to run in 2016.

        Speculation to the contrary – including definite non-praise and the belief she’s already running is forbidden.

        Well, it’s the privilege of blog owners to manage things as they please.

        So on that note, goodbye and best wishes.

        • Yes, that is my prerogative as a blog owner. I will not have this blog become just another one of those breathless Hillary 2016 sites. If you want to discuss that and make her contributions in the here and now insignificant, then you will have to go elsewhere.
          Thanks for playing.
