We’re not political prognosticators, but this one is irresistible.
Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell predicted today that Hillary Clinton would likely run for President in 2016 — coincidentally on the day that President Obama’s approval rating dropped below 40%.
We believe that Rendell’s comments are another Clinton “trial balloon” (remember those?) — signaling to Democrats that she’s ready to run now.
Like Shakespeare’s Richard III she wants to be perceived as being begged to run, even though it’s what she really wants.
No doubt she also feels that the only way the Democrats could toss out the first black president is to replace him with the first woman president.
There’s a reason she was on the other side of the world during the debt ceiling crisis, and it had nothing to do with peace on Earth.
Besides there’s no way Hillary would risk waiting until 2016 as Obama will have utterly destroyed the Democrat brand by then.
