One is forced to wonder if by some great mercy, Hillary will just go away.
We have suffered with this woman’s presence on the national scene since the first time her husband ran for the presidency.
We got a good idea of her sense of humility when she declared herself a co-president during Bill’s first term.
We got a good idea of her integrity with her failed healthcare reform task force that operated in violation of federal regulations.
And things have only gone downhill from there.
Serving as U.S. Senator from New York was all about positioning herself for a run for the White House, something she had been planning perhaps even before her husband was first elected to that office.
When Obama defeated her for the Democratic nomination, she got the consolation prize of serving as secretary of state in the Obama administration.
This only gave further evidence of her corruption as she used the Clinton Foundation as a personal fundraiser. Benghazi was not a source of pride, either.
Finally, she managed to get the Democratic nomination for president and promptly lost to Donald Trump in what had to be the most humiliating event for a woman whose ego is the size of Montana.

Much of this was just pointed out by Steve Bannon in a 60 Minutes interview. He summed up her problems not by pointing out what we already know:
Specifically, that she has an unremitting sense of bitterness and penchant for corruption, but also by stating that she’s really not very bright, and is out of touch with people, thus making her a lousy leader.
Hard to disagree.
“Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steve Bannon slammed former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s leadership style in an interview with CBS’s Charlie Rose on 60 Minutes: Overtime.
“‘Hillary Clinton’s not very bright. Everyone thinks she’s so smart, smarter than Donald Trump,’ Bannon said.
‘She doesn’t really have a grasp. She doesn’t really have a grasp on what’s important and what’s not, and that’s what’s essential in a leader.’“
The woman simply sees people as tools to be used to accomplish her goals.
Only the most sycophantic of supporters are so deluded as to not see what their real worth is to Hillary. And perhaps she is a bit dim as Bannon suggests.
Bannon also pointed out something that has become increasingly apparent:
“Bannon also blasted Clinton for not grasping the ‘nationalist movement’ like some of her fellow Democrats in the House and the Senate, such as Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and his colleagues.
“‘That’s why the smart guys in the Democratic Party, that’s why they understand what’s going on. Sherrod Brown gets this. Tim Ryan gets this … the guys around Schumer get this.
STORY CONTINUES BELOW…
They understand this. They’re trying to get the identity politics out. They’re trying to run,’ Bannon said.”
While we cannot agree with much of what Mr. Schumer has to say, he’s not a stupid man. He has to get the fact that Hillary Clinton is a lead weight around the necks of the Democrats.
The sooner she shuts up the better off her party will be.
While we’re not interested in supporting Mr. Schumer’s political agenda, to the extent that he and other colleagues might be able to push Hillary into silent retirement would be a relief for all of us.
The question is whether she can stand being out of the news cycle no matter how much damage she does to the Democratic party and nauseates the rest of us…
