Politico Faces Its Worst Fear and Ponders a 2016 Without Hillary

House Foreign Relations Committee Hearing On Secretary of State Nominee John Kerry

Until now, Hillary Clinton’s run for the presidency has been viewed as pretty much a sure thing. But lately the road to near-certain nomination has taken a couple of rough turns, especially with the revelation that Clinton may have broken federal rules as secretary of state by communicating only on her private email account. Which makes us wonder: What if The Unthinkable did happen and she actually dropped out? What would be the Democrats’ response?

“Panic,” says Democratic consultant Chris Lapetina. Indeed, the biggest problem is that the Democratic establishment is apparently so terrified of the idea of a Hillary-less race—and the vicious primary that might result—it’s not even considering contingency plans. Political professionals, like military generals and crisis management experts, know that the way to avoid being blindsided is to prepare for every scenario. But while the Democratic National Committee has to officially remain neutral, much of the extraparty infrastructure has been moving ahead on the presumption of a Hillary campaign.

The Democrats are afraid of the no-Hillary option because their bench is thinner than Joe Biden’s hair before he got the plugs. All eyes would turn towards Elizabeth Warren at first, prompting an “elderly white woman for elderly white woman” straight-up swap for the party of youth and diversity. If the Hillary money went her way, the problem is solved. Warren, however, is a favorite of the Obama crowd, which isn’t always in sync with the Hillary crowd, so there is no guarantee that would happen.

The only reason to believe that the email problem will have a negative impact on Hillary is the fact that it was the New York Times that made it well known. Her Madameship’s minions can’t scurry about screaming about right-wing conspiracies on this one. Sadly, the Clintons are practiced lawbreakers and have never had any of their countless infractions stick.

My personal conspiracy theory here (pure speculation) is that the email scandal will only gain traction if power players inside the Democratic Party decide that Mrs. Bill needs to be nudged out in favor of Fauxcahontas.

Then it’s popcorn time.

This is such a great line, it’s worth repeating: “The Democrats are afraid of the no-Hillary option because their bench is thinner than Joe Biden’s hair before he got the plugs. He’s right, they’ve got Fauxcahontas in the on-deck circle and she’s got her own plugged-bat baggage.

Of course, she does have the only credential (besides an extreme left mindset) the left deems necessary, she was a Harvard Law Professor, everything else is icing on the cake. To paraphrase what someone else said about our Attorney General designate, “Warren is another Obama with different plumbing.”

    So many of the libs and LIVs are of the mindset that Hitlery can do no wrong, that unless there is punishment that precludes her running, this could all wash under the bridge and be forgotten, giving her time to bounce back.

    This is a generation of people who think it’s okay to be a homo, they deserve marriage, babies, sex-change operations, etc., so a separate email account is no big deal to them. their response when asked would be ‘So what?’

    • Garnet92 says:

      There is one aspect of this emailgate scandal that is different than most government scandals, it concerns something that everyone is familiar with – emails.

      Not arcane campaign finances, no foreign contributions to a foundation, no quid pro quo deals for big money bundlers – this subject is something about which everyone has some familiarity. I think that’s a reason for it to have “legs.”

  2. I.R. Wayright says:

    I don’t know what they are worried about. They have another, perfectly serviceable*, communist nitwit waiting in the wings.
    * Ready to continue the commie agenda to grind America down to third world, Soros owned, one world government status.

    • Garnet92 says:

      I can hear the umpire now, calling “nitwit up”! You’re right I.R., Soros owns the franchise, so it matters little which nitwit is chosen.

  3. Ann Bannister says:

    They are NOT worried. They will keep their main candidate in hiding, like they did with Obama, in order to keep people from vetting them.

    • Garnet92 says:

      Don’t know about that Ann, many democrat operatives appear to be concerned about the two scandals (more so about the foreign contributions than the emails) hitting at the same time and damaging the brand. Warren is not without baggage and any male loses the “first woman POTUS” aspect of the campaign. Biden would certainly qualify as “First Nitwit” as I.R. noted above.

  4. Grouchy says:

    There hasn’t been an ounce of integrity in the Clinton crew since Hitlery was fired in 1972, I think it was, in the midst of the Watergate mess.
    Remember the hidden tax records in Bill’s presidency?
    What I cannot understand is, the hero worship of the Clinton clan.
    Like Elvis Presley, we’ve almost made them “demi-gods” ~!

    • Garnet92 says:

      It’s interesting G-man that that story has been “scrubbed” over the years. It’s now said that she was let go because they were winding down the investigation after Nixon resigned BUT the guy who had originally made the statement still went on the record as saying “If I had the power to fire her, I would have fired her” and that he refused to give her a letter of recommendation.

      You and I remember that at the time, the reasons were plain: “Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer, she conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the Committee, and the rules of confidentiality.”

      Now, long after the fact, Snopes and Truthorfiction have apparently been “persuaded” to “soften” the story so as not to paint Mrs. Clinton in a less-than-favorable light.

    This whole dustup couldn’t happen to a more deserving corrupt deceitful immoral sneaky manipulative lying ass bitch. I have disliked her since 1992 when she started with that co-presidency shit and over the years her activities and actions have caused me to hate her.
