Why Bill Clinton Hates Barack Obama AND Hillary

Political Night Train has been tracking Bill Clinton’s activities for months now, and has reached an opinion on why he has been so ……….. erratic, making outrageous statements that seem to make Hillary’s lies pale in comparison. 

 

Much has been written about Bill Clinton’s character, and they essentially all paint a picture of an overinflated ego, narcissism (matched only by Hillary’s), fits of purple rage, self-loathing, and now, outright hatred for some.  There are currently no reasonable restraints on Bill.  He can do and say as he pleases.  But what more can be done to Bill?  He’s been Impeached by a vote of the US House of Representatives.  He’s lost law suits.  He’s been disbarred and lost his law license.  He’s apparently lost the love and respect of the black community (except perhaps for black women over 55).

 

To explain it all, understand that Bill Clinton, much like Jimmy Carter, is an ex-President in search of a positive legacy.  Carter sought his through the Carter Center in Atlanta and spent years seeking the one thing that would give him a lasting positive legacy – the Nobel Peace Prize.  But in winning the Nobel Peace Prize Carter had to share it.  And it was common knowledge that Carter only receive the prize as a political slap at George Bush.  So even the one thing that Carter wanted more than all else, like his Presidency, is tainted.  Compare Carter’s “shared Nobel” with some of the outright winners: Theodore Roosevelt, Jane Addams, Cordell Hull, Albert Schweitzer, George Marshall, Henry Kissinger, Begin & Sadat, Mother Teresa.

 

Now, is Bill Clinton really in the same league (Jimmy Carter excepted)?  And this is what Bill seeks to secure his place in history.  Oh, and Al Gore has a Nobel, just to put salt into Bill’s wounds.

 

So, what makes Bill hate?  First, to Hillary.  Bill may not exactly hate Hillary (although he has lots of reasons), but he does seem to hate the idea that she may get elected President.  Why?  A successful Hillary Presidency would greatly diminish Bill’s Presidency.  He would be reduced to a footnote in history, the spouse, former President to the more successful President Hillary Rodham Clinton.  So, deep inside, Bill wants Hillary to fail, and this in part explains may of his statements.  Simple enough, but what about Barack Obama?

 

Barack Obama is everything Bill is not (Jeremiah Wright excepted).  Obama is beloved by the press; is adored by his fans (Bill has always sought the “Elvis factor”); is a good orator; smooth; has not had any bimbo outbreaks; a nice wife and family; successful author; has 98% support from blacks, and most important, Obama IS black.  If elected, Obama WOULD be the first black President.  Bill would be just the first black President in name only.

The Long Goodbye, Hillary Clinton Style

Jim Vandehei, an advisor to Hillary Clinton has told Politico that Hillary’s chances of winning the Democratic nomination are only 10 percent.  That’s one chance in ten!  Davidson has a better chance of taking it all in the NCAA.  The likely hood of an Obama bombshell is probably less than one-in-a-hundred.  For months now the Clinton camp has spread rumors that they have dirt on Obama.  Well, if it was Jeremiah Wright, they blew it big time.  Like so many political rumors, and this one sounds too much like a Carville-rumor, this one has, so far, been a bust.  But then, lying is a Hillary character trait, or flaw.

So, how long will Hillary play out her long goodbye?  The body appears nearly dead, but the brain is still thinking, calculating, conniving the next attack.  But like a poor archer who shakes at the critical moment, the Clinton machine can’t put a silver arrow through Obama’s political heart.  Makes one wonder just how well Hillary would respond to one of those 3 am phone calls.  Obama’s rope-a-dope straategy has worked, thus far.  Now while Hillary tries to defend her lies (remember, Bill Safire got it right when he said she is a “congential liar”), Obama is soaking up the sun in the USVI.

Much of Hillary’s character, style and campaign reminds one of Richard Nixon, especially whenhe ran against JFK.  But that’s another story, comparing Hillary to Nixon.  Recall, the Nixon-JFK, make or break moment came during the debate where Nixon looked tired and pale, while JFK, just back from a vacation, looked tanned and rested.  Will Obama look tan and rested next week in PA?

It is unlikely that Hillary will decide on her own to end the campaign.  It simply is not in her character.  Bill to the rescue, you say?  Bill shot his wad (no pun) in SC by injecting racism in the campaign.  His effectiveness is done, mostly to his own decision to inject racism.  Does Bill secretly want Hillary to fail?  Political Night Train believes this is the case.  A successful Hillary Presidency would do much to deminish Bill’s legacy.  This would explain why he’s committed numerous fatal compaign errors.  But more on that in a later article.

If not a self-imposed withdrawal from the campaign, then who will tell Hillary it is time to quit?  Bill Richardson, in his phone call to Hillary to tell her he is supporting Obama came close, but couldn’t make the leap.  Apparently he was taking a tongue lashing from Hillary.  Ted Kennedy can’t do it, as he is now in the Obama camp.  Pelosi is out, as she has taken what amounts to an anti-Hillary stand on the superdelegates.  The former Governor of NYS is out, er, on his way to a trial.  The DNC leadership is out, as they were appointed by the Clintons.  That leaves three likely candidates to do the dirty deed:  Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, or Al Gore.  Bill is unlikely to step up as he does not want to incur the wrath of Hillary, again.  Al Gore invented hating the Clintons, even more than he hates Bush.  That leaves Barack Obama to do the awful task.  Is Barack up to it?  Stepping up to the plate and telling Hillary she needs to quit would prove to all that he’s ready to lead.  What better way to prove his skills than to convince Hillary to get out?  So the question is, Barack, are you man enough to step up to the plate and take one for the team?  Or, willyou prove your real character and avoid the tough play?
