It looks like the Hillary Clinton inevitability bandwagon is up and running again.
Just as in the ramp-up to 2008, Hillary has again scored a victory in the Political Prognosticators’ Primary, vanquishing the prospective Democratic field, in the eyes of the cognoscenti, by pre-spanking her opposition with her imposing résumé.
But what those who tout Clinton as a nigh unstoppable force for the 2016 Democratic nomination fail to realize is that Hillary Clinton is the most overrated politician of her generation.
No doubt she can outwork the opposition and probably raise more money and get more pop stars to pledge their allegiance. She eats determination for breakfast and persistence for lunch.
But diligence, as Barack Obama has taught us, does not guarantee success. Getting results and performing when it counts — as Obama also teaches — are what matters in politics. And results are what Clinton doesn’t get, and probably won’t get in 2016.
