Hillary’s Downfall

Heard from Hillary lately? Nope, me neither.

Jennifer Rubin turns the spotlight on yet another example of Hillary’s poor decision-making: Her decision to accept the Secretary of State position.

Had she stayed in the Senate, she might have inherited the mantle of liberal leadership from Ted Kennedy. Clinton might have been the one to pull a rabbit out of the hat to save health-care reform. But once again her ambition got the best of her and her self-image of super-smart, super-capable policy wonk led her to a poor career choice. Now, politics is filled with second and third acts, and maybe her political career will recover. But I’m not sure her reputation ever will.

I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of Hillary. But from now on she will be relegated largely to the late night joke circuit.
