Despite an embarrassing loss to political outsider Donald Trump in last November’s presidential election, Hillary Rodham Clinton will not go away quietly.
Mike Allen of Axios has reported that Mrs. Clinton plans to start a new political action committee that will act as a “quiet catalyst” to assist grassroots [progressive] political organizations and [Democratic] congressional candidates for the 2018 mid-term elections.
Clinton claims that the new PAC will not be used to raise funds for a 2020 presidential campaign by the former secretary of state.
Hillary will also resume giving six-figure paid speeches. Of course. Prior to her most recent run for president, Clinton commanded $225,000 per speaking engagement. She took home an astounding $22 million for paid speeches between 2013 and 2015.
Axios’s Allen writes that “the initial focus will be on lifting up organizations that are the product of the energy and activism she has seen since the election, and existing groups that have been reignited and reinvigorated by that energy.” Perhaps some of these energetic and activist organizations include Antifa and BLM?
Mrs. Clinton is reportedly writing another book, with an expected publication date in the fall. Axios reports that the book will be “organized around pieces of advice she has received throughout her career that have sustained her in hard times. She uses these truisms to revisit times she has been put to the test, including the last campaign.”
In addition, a new edition of her classic “It Takes a Village” will be released. This edition will include illustrations by Marla Frazee, and will be titled “It Takes a Village: Picture Book Edition.” Can hardly wait.
In a way it is kind of sad to see a political has-been try in vain to stay relevant. But then come the thoughts of how the nation barely dodged the bullet of a Hillary Clinton presidency. So let her publish children’s books, fund radical organizations, and give wildly overpaid speeches.
At least she’s not president.
