Why didn’t Hillary Clinton get the 2008 Democratic nomination? She was the favorite going in, and her candidacy started right after the 2004 Presidential Election? Was it because people wanted to have a black president before having a female president? Was it because of sexism? Or were there other factors at play?
The truth is, Hillary Clinton is dangerous, and even Democrats are willing to acknowledge that. Because she is a power-hungry individual who is willing to do anything to become President. She rode her husband’s coattails to launch her own political career (despite his extramarital affairs, as well as her feminist brand). And she is also a hypocrite for a variety of reasons. She claims to be in love with Bill, yet many of her friends and aides are lesbians. She emphasizes her Christian faith, yet she is a habitual cheater and liar, not to mention a cold-hearted individual. She demands absolute loyalty and obedience from those underneath her, while she frequently treats them like dirt and backstabs them.
Her explosive temper is perhaps a bigger reason as to why she would make a bad leader. For instance, the Clintons would have their shouting matches and “Jerry Springer-like free-for-alls”, yet the Secret Service was not able to intervene, because Hillary had them banned from the White House’s living quarters. This action was the result of incidents being mentioned in the newspapers regarding their domestic disputes, including one where Hillary threw a lamp at Bill before cursing at him. There have also been reports of her throwing books (some say even the Bible) at Secret Service Agents because she did not like the way they drove.
Paranoia is another reason why Hillary Clinton should not be President. Once Bill took office, Hillary wanted a major overhaul of all White House employees, in an attempt to replace them with people she could trust. There were firings, including individuals from the White House Travel Office (which would backfire), cooks, the barber, and even an usher who took a call from Barbara Bush over a computer he had programmed for her (which led to Hillary suspecting that he was spying for the Bushes).
Such paranoia was extended to the media. Hillary put restrictions on the White House Press Corps, and would not allow them to follow her whenever she traveled. She continued to disregard the media after becoming a Senator. Whereas other Senators would stop to answer questions from reporters, Hillary immediately leaves the Capitol Building to a waiting car, thus giving the press the cold shoulder. This might be why the media gave its support to Obama.
Finally, Hillary Clinton is a liberal, no matter how much she tries to paint herself as a moderate. She was a sixties radical, she supported the Black Panthers, she admires Saul Alinsky (as does Obama), and she is devoted to the socialist agenda. In fact, she would be a worse President than Barack Obama. Thus, when 2016 arrives, Americans would be wise not to vote for her, otherwise she would unleash her agenda (not to mention her wrath).
