And so begins the latest episode of The Clintons…
Not too long ago, when the world was wide-eyed and hope seemed in grasp, our economy was picking up. Bill Clinton was president and he was rather eloquent on the saxophone. He was complimented by many in the press and around the country as the next John F. Kennedy and the country felt graced by his presence. He was married to a wonderful, vibrant and political woman named Hillary Rodham Clinton and they had one child, a daughter name Chelsea. Everything was perfect, The American Dream was alive and well.
Being quite popular in the public eye, Hillary began to emerge as a champion for the under privileged and so not long after The Clintons arrived in Washington, President Bill Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two contemplative selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood, two women the Clintons knew quite well, but unfortunately both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration after failing a simple vetting process. So in referendum, she chose Janet Reno, whom President Bill Clinton later described as his “worst mistake ever.” Like many of us, hindsight is 20/20 of course and we often must rise over those bumps in the road. So Janet Reno, a strong woman of undeterred fiber made the hard decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas, which resulted in dozens of deaths to women and children. But sometimes, things happen. It’s life and yes again, it’s how one bounces back that truly matters.
Apparently building confidence back up in his first lady, President Bill Clinton allowed Hillary to make more recommendations and hires, so she empathetically came out of the gate and chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Those selections ended up as followed: Hubbel went to prison, Vince Foster committed “suicide,” before going to testify in The Reno debacle and William Kennedy was forced to resign for not paying taxes. A sad turn of events, but what doesn’t deter us only makes us stronger, together.
From there though, things began to get a little more rocky for Our Clintons with “FileGate,” when again President Bill Clinton allowed his beloved Hillary to hire a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone for the position of Director of White House security. A noble job that paid pretty good, but when Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of 900 FBI files of Clinton’s Political Enemies and questioned as to the rampant use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and President Bill Clinton denied even knowing Livingstone, and as the story goes, of course denied any knowledge of drug use in the White House. Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.
But maybe the Clintons can learn from all of this. Well, it came about not long after, when everyone was tucked away snug in their beds that women, many women in fact came forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by President Bill Clinton.
In a tough spot, but determined to persevere, President Bill Clinton again put his better half in charge of what many later would call quite simply the “bimbo defense,” which consisted mostly of the following: deny, deny, deny. So what would come of our Clintons now? Well it seems, after $80 million dollars of taxpayer money, Ken Starr’s investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to a soiled blue dress and cigar, which then unfortunately led to President Bill Clinton lying under oath. Hillary’s “bimbo defense” sadly backfired for her husband President Bill Clinton, who lost his license to practice law jury and was then later impeached from being President of The Kingdom. Hillary though steady and tough, still sticking to her full proof plan, avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the investigation by repeating three mere sentences, which were as follows: “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.
You win some, you lose some of course.
Yes, sadly our Clintons were on the way out of The White House, but still they seemed as popular as ever. So it was on a cold night in January, before the inauguration of the new President to take Bill Clinton’s place, George W. Bush, that Hillary was forced to return $200,000 in White House furniture, china and artwork she had stolen. Oh that Hillary, what a character! but wouldn’t you know, some years later Our Hillary would be back in The White House, as a renowned Secretary of State…
And so her legacy continues today…as she has maneuvered around many political pitfalls to get where she is now and just two days left before the People are to elect their 45th President, she hopes and prays for your vote. It is definitely not easy being the first female candidate in Washington D.C.,and sadly it’s even more difficult when one has committed more than a few felonies. But our Hillary pressed on determined…What will the future holds for The Clintons is anyone’s guess…
As for now, on November 6th, 2016, many throughout the world have said that watching the latest incarnation of the Hillary Clinton Rally has them shuttering in disbelief. Some have even reported that watching her rallies is somewhat sad, almost as if watching an animal squirm for safety. But if we know anything, we know how tough The Clintons are.
What the future holds for Our Clintons is anyone’s guess, but knowing their past, it definitely won’t be predictable.
