madame president

You may as well get used to it, mein freund. Hillary is not going to be put in a pillory. Instead she will be praised in the press, lauded by pundits, beloved by her family, selected, protected, and elected.

Madame Secretary's establishment credentials are impeccable. She'll line up with Wall Street, the defense contractors, agribusiness, Nat'l Assoc of Realtors, insurance industry, &c. &c. ad infintum ad nauseum. The only big playa she might...might be not quite cool with is big oil; we'll have to wait & see.

Over all, however, Mrs. Clinton is and will be a staunch supporter of the status quo. I mean, hell, she voted for the Iraq War while a Senator. She knows as well as we do that in Washington no evil deed ever goes unrewarded.

What we're looking at pretty much is a real coronation, but that's not Mrs. Clinton's fault. The nonparticipation of the Republican Party in the real political process means she will effectively run unopposd.
