The Democratic party continues to be a leaderless hot mess with no 2020 presidential candidate with a strong national profile.
It is quite possible that this is intentional because the party remains either unable, unwilling or incapable of scrubbing the stench of the Clintons off of it and Hillary is looking more and more like she is going to be the nominee again come hell or high water. Clinton has maintained a higher profile than any losing candidate ever has and has emerged as the head of a government in exile and leader of #TheResistance, she is back out hitting the circuit and giving speeches in what looks like a warmup for another campaign.
On Thursday, she gave a speech to a liberal crowd in Chicago who she enthralled by shipping shovels of dripping, bloody red meat from the dais and outlining her platform – Trump is a racist and white supremacist.

Via The Chicago Sun-Times “Hillary Clinton warns Chicagoans of ‘war on truth,’ celebration of racism”:
Hillary Rodham Clinton didn’t pull any punches on Thursday, telling a Chicago audience that in America today “truth, facts and reason” are under siege, and “racist and white supremacist views” are finding an ear in the media and the White House.
Clinton returned to her hometown to both receive an award and help raise money for a political action committee aimed at bolstering African-American women in politics — and to blast her take on Donald Trump’s America.
“We are living in challenging times. We’re living through a war on truth, facts and reason, watching as racist and white supremacist views are lifted up in the media and in the White House. But despite it all, there are signs of hope and resilience and much of that is being led and shaped by black women like my dear friend [Congresswoman] Maxine Waters,” Clinton told hundreds at the Sheraton in Chicago.
Clinton’s visit is a big nod to a group of voters who were some of her biggest and most unwavering supporters. She last visited Chicago during a book tour last year. The Chicago native, former presidential candidate, first lady and secretary of state, spoke at the Ida B. Wells Legacy Luncheon.
Clinton stressed the importance of black women and their power to instill change: “Black women are not only the base of the Democratic party. You are essential to democracy.”
Clinton spoke of voter suppression, the struggle for black women to get equal pay and the need to represent black women long after elections. And she vowed to “keep the faith” in those efforts.
This time it is going to be very different at least in Hillary’s diseased mind.
Mark Zuckerberg announced that he was ramping up hiring and that Facebook would be deploying 20,000 censors by this the end of the year, more than enough to dispense with those pesky
Trump supporters Russian trolls and Silicon Valley owes her big time.
An added bonus would be if Trump is already gone thanks to the Deep State plot to frame him or otherwise manufacture impeachable “evidence” that will be used by a Democrat-controlled House to start the process in January. Hillary is used to being the one doing the punching but instead, Trump repeatedly pasted her in her bloated kisser, an indignity that she does not want to suffer again. It would be far better to run against Mike Pence (or even Jeb!) who don’t have the same appeal as Trump who ran on being an outsider.
