The 1967 musical “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” had a scene where the dominating female character, Lucy van Pelt, was pontificating about what she would do when she was the queen. The other “Peanuts” characters had to explain to her that this was America, and that we didn’t have a queen.
It appears that somebody should elucidate that fact to Hillary Clinton as well. She apparently feels that it is her right to rule over us, at least as president. After all, it’s her turn! It needs to be explained to her that simply waiting in line doesn’t get you to this country’s highest office. You’ve got to earn it.
Part of that process is gaining the trust of a majority of the American electorate, and right now the polls show that she hasn’t done that, not by a long shot.
To achieve her ultimate goal, Hillary has apparently decided on a “hedgehog” strategy. If she can wrap herself into a tight enough ball, with her shrewish barbs protecting her, maybe she can make it to the top of the ladder without ever exposing her true self to the public through press conferences and public appearances.
Unfortunately for her, the garbage bag is leaking, and the contents don’t look or smell good. The debates will be telling unless the moderators, like Candy Crowley in the Obama-Romney debate in 2012, run interference for her. We must wait and see.
