She'll Have Fun, Fun, Fun, Until the FEC Takes Her Donors Away
Fun? Is that really the last word Hillary wants to leave Americans with before she stops doing paid talks and makes her presidential campaign official?
I realize that her lame remark about fun camps for adults was just Hillary pandering to a paid audience of the New York and New Jersey Tri-State CAMP Conference. But still, doesn't she have an adviser with enough sense to steer her away from that image? It clashes with the Hillary Rodham Clinton that we all know and - some - love.
Hillary Clinton: the party-hearty Fun Candidate for 2016? No. That does not work for her.
The "fun camp" stuff came up during Hillary's Q&A with Jay Jacobs, host of the event. Jacobs is a camp director himself but, much more pertinently, is also the chairman of the Nassau County, Long Island, Democratic Party and a member of the Democratic National Committee's credentialing committee. Obviously, then, the "fun camp" stuff was far from extemporaneous. Hillary intended to do that.
Self-awareness. Does she have any?
Once HRC finally announces her candidacy, the Federal Election Commission rules on campaign cash might ruin some of her fun.
