Hillary- always the bridesmaid
I told you a very long time ago that Hillary Rodham Clinton was not going to be the Democratic nominee for President in 2016. I am feeling pretty good about that prediction right now. I also said Bernie Sanders was a clear and present danger and he may be but there is another candidate about to get into the race that could truly upset the apple cart, Joe Biden.
Hillary seems to be plagued with one scandal after another. Though most on the left and the hardcore Democrats may continue to dismiss her follies as the continuing ‘vast right wing conspiracy’ the rest of the country and most notably the independent voters are beginning to reject her outright.
In recent polling she is running well behind several GOP candidates including Scott Walker, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. All of this chaos leads to the next big hit her campaign is about to take, the announcement in the next few weeks by Joe Biden that he will be seeking the Democratic nomination for President. It’s a nomination that he may well win and leave Hillary at the alter once again. Mark it down and underline it. Joe Biden is running for President and you heard it here first.
Hillary’s biggest opponent however isn’t going to be Biden or our Marxist pal and Communist sympathizer Bernie Sanders. No, her biggest opponent is a woman pulling strings in the shadows. Her biggest threat is Valerie Jarrett, the woman who has in large part run the last 6 1/2 years of the Obama administration. Simply put, Valerie hates Hillary and she really makes no secret of the matter. So while Hillary is trying to find her voice and her inner retail politician, she will also need to protect her flank from attacks originating at the White House.
Meanwhile on the other side of the street Donald Trump continues to make a lot of noise and headlines but also flying in nearly undetected is Ohio Governor John Kasich. Kasich has roared from nowhere polling less than two percent to number four in New Hampshire and 8th overall. This is key because, as you know only the top ten in such polls will make the stage for the first Republican debate in Cleveland coming up in a couple weeks.
Many counted Kasich out before he even joined the crowded GOP field July 21st.
Right now I might be inclined to believe a year from now we would be sizing up the race between Joe Biden and John Kasich. It is a race that the Ohio Governor will likely win.
