On The Shelf

At our local Target store, Hillary Clinton's writing and political careers in an inadvertent juxtaposition.

Thirty percent off your book is a little hard to take, but she at least can get shelf space.  Most authors never get a shot.  It helps to have friends.

As to the presumption that she is "The One and Only" option for the Democratic nomination and subsequent Presidency....that notion was even more widely accepted in the lead up to the 2004 election.  It turned out not to be true.

An interesting figure politically.  She will of course have to make her case based on her merits and accomplishments.  As to the notion that we should support her because it is "time" we had a female Commander in Chief.  I think it will happen in the next decade.  I am just not sure if it will be Kelly Ayotte or Susana Martinez.  Or heck, maybe Elizabeth Warren.  Political prognostication is a mug's game.
