Oh, fark off, subby.

Probably because she understands syntax and can stay on one train of thought.
 
2017-11-08 08:11:03 PM  
Sadly, this is one of the things that people like Hannity and Limbaugh will cite as "Why won't she go away?"

Also, they may think she's still working for the government...somehow...

 I saw Michelle Obama speak at a charity event in my city. Might have been 20 yards from her and I was giddy as a girl at a boy band concert. It wasn't star worship; she speaks very convincingly and carries herself with a dignity I can't imagine producing. I can't WAIT until she's out there in force. If she chooses to do so.

 She seems exhausted and annoyed by her time in DC but a woman like that isn't going into seclusion for too long.

Seriously, they've had some of he best political reporting I've seen in the last decade or so. (I'm not sure if your were being sarcastic or not, I'm not though.)

This is like a sad "Choose Your Own Adventure Book",

You're at a turning point in your career. What do you do?

If you choose to become the next President of the United States, turn to page 47.

If you choose to be a guest editor for Teen Vogue, turn to page 96.

It's one of the running taglines on Fark - We're not mature enough for Teen Vogue.

I think there are great things in store for her, but how is being a keynote speaker going into seclusion?

There actually is something sad in the article - teen vogue is going web only, no more print. Having Clinton guest edit is one of the last things they're doing. Considering the reporting they've done recently and the inspiration that Clinton has been to so many young girls (I guarantee the first female president of the United States will thank Hillary in her inaugural speech. Regardless of your politics and if you like her or hate her, you have to admit she made it very far in an incredibly adversarial and hostile climate), this is a class move on vogue's part. Maybe it's just a "get off my lawn" moment, but the loss of another source of print journalism (even with the superficial trappings of this particular one) is something to be mourned, and I think there is something bittersweet about inviting her to edit.

If I had written them, it would be more like a version of 'mad libs', where during some of the endings, you get to write your own.

Because I think the writers of those books had very little imagination. I only read a few because they sucked.

And still we have no Teen Cosmopolitan where the cover can have "5 Sinfully Hot Sex Moves To Steam The Limo Windows At Prom".

I think you have her mixed up with Sir Edmund.

She had a Senate nomination handed to her on a silver platter, over the objections of progressives who busted their asses and paid their dues, in a state where Democrats get a two-million-vote head start and the Republican party can't find its ass with both hands and a team of bloodhounds.

That's pretty much the opposite of adversarial - and her lack of serious electoral testing showed in 2008 and 2016.

Rig the game and she wins. Put her up against even a minimally-capable opponent on a level playing field and she folds like a yard sale lawn chair.

I feel like that's a pretty big "if," and I can't blame her.  Now, I'm among those who wishes she'd run for anything she'd like, wishes she'd go out and take on the world, thinks she's an incredible, inspirational person who has managed an unflappable grace I simply can't imagine in the face of open ignorant hostility, etc, etc, so don't get me wrong.  But, criminey:  If I were her, and I saw the amount of shiat Mr. Obama and Ms. Clinton had to eat, not to mention the off-the-rails response to my own unassailable cause "you know, let's not feed kids crap," I can't imagine thinking, "hey, let's see what happens when someone  takes a high profile while combining *both* the physical characteristics that set off the unhinged and fuel the hate machines in this country!"  It is, of course, to our country's great shame and loss, but I can't blame her if she wants to take care of her kids, take quiet leadership positions in cause-advocacy organizations she cares about, or just wants to find a comfy couch on which to read and/or write a book for the rest of her life.

What color is the sky in the world where Ms. Clinton didn't have to deal with 30+ years of open adversarial hate, misinformation, lies, and propaganda from everything from two-bit politicians and blow-hards to national media outlets?  'cuz I'd like to have the right color sunglasses should a wormhole open and tourism become available.

It's blue where she ran for Senate, except when the wind is blowing from the Jersey side.

Please, name one. One who has been an equal victim of fake investigations, fake propoganda and real russian meddling.

To say her Congressional seat was handed to her is utter nonsense. She fought for that seat and honored that win by being hands on, down in Lower Manhattan after 9-11 and fighting for resources for 1st responders.

Is she perfect? No, none are. She earned every place she had all while fighting a (dis)loyal opposition.

So, yes, please fark off subby and all who believe Clinton has had a cake walk through politics.

She will keep working for the public, in any manner she wishes and many of us are thankful for that.

bobbifleckman: To say her Congressional seat was handed to her is utter nonsense. She fought for that seat


Really?

There were several Democrats lined up to run for Moynihan's seat upon his retirement (I can think of at least five), just as there were in the 70's when Moynihan himself competed in and won the Democratic primary, in 1980 when both parties' candidates competed in primaries, and in 1998 when Schumer won the Democratic primary - but in 2000 the word came down from House Clinton that the local Democrats were to sit on their hands and not utter a peep if they knew what was good for them. She wound up facing only token primary opposition from one guy with no name and no money.

It struck me that one of her prerequisites was that there would be no primary. It struck me as undemocratic that a candidate could be selected by half a dozen people.

Seems we've heard THAT tune lately, haven't we.

He picked up almost 20% of the vote.

That protest vote from the liberals should have been a red flag there, especially since the same thing happened again in her 2006 primary.

Is that getting through to you yet? At least one-sixth of the Democratic voters in a thoroughly blue state have consistently wanted no part of dynastic politics a la Hillary.

"Is that getting through to you yet? At least one-sixth of the Democratic voters in a thoroughly blue state have consistently wanted no part of dynastic politics a la Hillary."

You mean the state that overwhelmingly voted for Clinton, by nearly 2:1, instead of trump.

The state where, in the fabled Senate race, Clinton beat Lazlo by 12%?

All while fighting decades of lies?

Some, still don't know they are regularly consuming propoganda.

You didn't answer the question, instead choosing to hyperfocus on one statement you took issue with.

Whatevs.

bobbifleckman:

It's unfortunate that many don't get how parties were run before twitter and fb made so many things public.

It is unfortunate that having clout and "taking turns" into leadership positions was the way things used to be, it isn't a perfect system.

Don't blame the woman who had expectations, based on the norms at that time, for wanting her turn, for making demands as so many have accused. It WAS the norm.

We need a new norm, this much is true, though the old system of expectations is already falling away and will continue to do so.
