“It Has Crossed My Mind,” Says Hillary Of Naming Her Husband Vice-President

This reeks of desperation and fear doesn’t it?

It also seems to reek of dependence. Not particularly a feminist narrative for the would-be First Female President who needs her ex-president husband to hold her hand

Hillary Clinton said the thought of selecting Bill as her running mate has “crossed” her mind, but added that she has been told it’s likely unconstitutional.

“He would be good, but he’s not eligible, under the Constitution,” the Democratic frontrunner said of her husband in an interview with Extra. “He has served his two terms and I think the argument would be as vice president it would not be possible for him to ever succeed to the position — at least that’s what I’ve been told.”

“It has crossed my mind,” she jokingly added to host Mario Lopez.

The correct answer to the question, Hillary, is the same one Jeb! Bush is trying to push when badgered about his own family dynasty – namely, that you can stand on your own and you don’t need Bill to help.

But we know that isn’t particularly true, if for no other reason that Hillary simply doesn’t have anything resembling Bill’s political skill.

After all, this is a woman who showed up on a college campus and told a female audience that sexual assault is a real thing and the victims of it should be given credibility

“It is not enough to condemn campus sexual assault. We need to end campus sexual assault,” Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, said in a speech in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Clinton’s three-pronged plan largely reflects the approach laid out by Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri) in a bill she unveiled in July. It involves programs aimed at preventing assaults, to be conducted both on college campuses and in high schools; increasing access to support for assault victims; and requiring that colleges and the criminal justice system create processes that provide fairness for both alleged victims and the accused.

But policy details aside, Clinton, speaking at a “Women for Hillary” event heavy on college students at the University of Northern Iowa, sought to portray herself as an ally and advocate of victims of college sexual assault— a group that a recent Washington Post survey found includes an estimated one in five women.

“To every survivor of sexual assault,” Clinton said, “you have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed. We’re with you.”

She added: “Every student deserves a safe environment in which to learn and thrive, not live in fear.”

Interesting, no? Does that right to be believed apply to Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey or Gennifer Flowers? It doesn’t seem that Hillary was very forthcoming in granting their right to be believed, was she?

There are gaffes, and then there are the things which come out of this woman’s mouth. One wonders if the rumors of her alcoholism don’t explain the cognitive dissonance in what she says.
