The End of the Hillary Era

In 1936, FDR came around for the 2nd time.  There's not a lot that he can brag about for the period of 1932 to 1936.  But the Republicans carried one of their weakest candidates in a hundred years as the challenger.

When the smoke cleared....Alf Landon had carried two states, and nationally got around 36.5-percent of the vote.  FDR won a clear 60-percent and the rest of the Electoral College.  It was an overwhelming election that really stuck to the Republicans for an entire decade.

In 2016?  I have doubts that Hillary can put together a total of six states in the Electoral College, and at best get 40-percent of the national vote.

The problem here is that all this frustration will harm regular Democrats running for state or county positions around the US.  Even if you had a decent record....you have "Hillary" stuck to the background and it might subtract 10-percent of the votes that you anticipated.

Hostility about the amount of loss?  I'm guessing that across the nation....in mid-November....a number of people will ask if this is the last of the Clinton attachment to national elections.  Will the news media try to bring her back to influence future elections?  No.....I think it'd harm the party even more.

There was one brief moment in 2008 when she had an opportunity to win, with no screwed-up email server in the background, and good health.  That was the golden opportunity there in Iowa, and she just plain screwed up that one single chance.

So, 2020....if 4.5 years away and if you were a Democrat.....you can hope for a bold new listing of fresh faces and talented guys to appear.

In the Year 2091

According to the State Department, at some point in the year 2091, they will have finished reviewing the 450,000 e-mails that Hillary Clinton received or sent on, and can then comply with the judge in this matter.

Now, I'm from Alabama and must profess....that 75 years is a bit of a stretch for a work-project.

How many presidents will come and go by 2091?  Probably 20 (assuming some might only be there four years).

How many employees in the State Department section that reviews the messages will come and go?  I might assume there are four people working in this section, and that most will ask to be transferred after six months there.....so statistically....around 600 to 1,000 people will have worked on this national task.

Using this scale and guessing when we might be able to make a Mars mission?  It''ll be at least 350 years.

By 2091.....Lady GaGa will be long forgotten.  Contact football will have been made illegal in six states.  The Detroit Lions will have won two NFL championships (to date, not a single one).  Cuba will have gone capitalist, then undergone another revolution to return to communist, and then undergone another revision back to capitalist.  The TV show Baywatch will have been remade six times.  And Hillary Clinton will be long dead....as they deliver the complete report.

I'm guessing the judge in this episode is a bit peeved and might just ask them to hand the documents in raw format over to him and he'll assign his people to read them and categorize them.

At some point in my life....I went off on 17 days of leave and came back to find around 380 emails in my mailbox.  It took around 90 minutes for me to clear 380 emails down to 20 emails that required attention or a response.   I'm not really buying into the 2091 year response.
