Translation: Hillary will direct the assassination personally.

Personal to the article writer: Did you manage to keep a straight face while typing any smallest part of this paragraph?

Two well-placed sources tell New York that over the past few weeks Hillary Clinton discussed with trusted advisers and friends whether or not she should attend the inaugural. She and President Clinton, the sources said, decided to do so out of a sense of duty and respect for the American democratic process.

    Oh me… just read about that elsewhere. I wonder if this three ring circus would make it worth while watching the inauguration.

    Not that I know of, no. But the Clintons have the huge problem right now that if they can’t find a way to appear relevant, their money spigot will close and never ever re-open. I think they’ve grown rather used to being powerful and super-wealthy.

    They might also be keeping the Clinton door open for Chelsea if she fancies a future in politics. A rumor I’ve heard.

  5. Is it customary for the loser to be present?

    Seems to be generally considered good form. Peaceful transition, support the democratic process, blah, blah, blah.

    “Romney was the first losing presidential candidate not to attend the inauguration since Michael Dukakis in 1989.”

    Keep in mind also that Ford, Carter, and Bush (41) lost after a first term, so they didn’t really hav anywhere else to be. Gore was exiting as VP, so kind of the same.

    Honestly I have no idea if it’s normal, though I’m surprised to find it’s not abnormal. I just thought the apparently non-ironic sentence I block-quoted was funny as hell.

  7. I’m agreed on the funny as hell part. Not sure if I was more surprised that Romney didn’t attend or that Gore did, based on the “have any class/sore loser” quotient.

    Often the “loser” is the outgoing President, who sorta has to be there. I have no clue what Hillary is the “outgoing” of, but I think it shows real courage for her and Bill to be out in public and within range of process servers armed with subpoenas.

    Oh, Norman, fantastic good point. I am hopeful . . .

To the stake with the heretic!
