According to failed Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Rodam Clinton, there were four reasons why she lost last November's national election, none of which had anything to do with her.
- Russian meddling in the election
- FBI Director James Comey's involvement toward the end of the race
- WikiLeaks theft of E-mails from her campaign chairman
Where to start?
While the "Russian meddling" rationale is still under investigation, it should be noted that Comey's brief 11th hour involvement was due to her personal aide/confident Huma Abedin's marital difficulties with her disgraced husband Anthony Weiner.
She may be onto something, blaming "misogyny," but then any of that was mostly due to her own personality.
(i.e., it's less a "woman thing" than a "Hillary thing.")
But the WikiLeaks revelations? C'mon already!
Uncovered were the skids the Democratic National Committee had placed under Bernie Sanders' campaign in favor of Hillary, and how sleazy DNC leaders Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Donna Brazile had been throughout.
However John Podesta's E-mails came to light, it was a great service to the country, exposing the extent of the Democratic hierarchy's institutional corruption... and Hillary's tacit if not overt complicity in the subverted process.
Don't forget, Wikileaks also revealed how the DNC planned to "elevate" Trump!
The DNC braintrust felt that was legitimate political strategy... the bulk of America (ourside of California) didn't buy into that cynical strategy.
