What happens to political powerhouses when their career ends? Former VP Al Gore kept on the environment and is really, really rich now. Former Senator John Kerry goes windsurfing, which is probably what lost him his presidential bid in 2004. Not too many Kansas farmers windsurf. Before Trump made sexual affairs cool, Gary Hart’s sexual liaison with Donna Rice Hughes was a killer. Now, he hangs out in the press rooms of other candidates reminding people who he is. President Bill Clinton is skinny and a bit stunned, then there is Secretary Hillary Clinton.
For a while, after Trump won, she stalked through the woods trying to walk off her anger. It did not work. She was entitled. The Republicans in Congress made her testify for 11 hours straight about emails. Emails.
She was not the first woman to run for president, but she was the first to make it all the way to the political Superbowl — the presidential elections. Given that Donald Trump skates by in his crime-a-day presidency, her anger is understandable.
The secretary tweeted after the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) handed down a watershed win for the New York Attorney General Letitia James and for America on Thursday. Unfortunately, she started out with a “but” followed faint praise for Congress. Interesting:
The is the most powerful woman in the nation and would be Madame President should Trump and VP Pence be swept away in the coronavirus pandemic. That would be before the blue tsunami hits in November. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) came out with her own tweet. She said something she has been saying for a long time, but there was a big difference. She tweeted that no one is above the law. This time she had SCOTUS at her back.
Clinton used her tweet to shoot a very painful jab to the House’s kidneys as only a very bright woman can do. She need not remind people how smart she is. That was not why she lost. People know how tough she is, that was not why she lost either.
Then, she wrote “I saw the danger of allowing blind spots to congressional oversight.” Her snideness, sending her sharp rapier into people’s backs hurt her. Her belief she is better than anyone, smarter than anyone, and can do a better job may be true. And it also may be why she lost:
‘On Trump’s taxes, the DA won but Congress lost (for now), which makes no sense. Congress sought information on money laundering and illicit finance & influence by foreign adversaries. As a senator I saw the danger of allowing blind spots to congressional oversight in these areas.’
Twitter world went nuts after Clinton’s negative tweet. Take a look at how America responded to it:
