Why Hillary Won’t Make It

Time out briefly from the Obama Debacle to contemplate the Hillary 2016 debacle-in-waiting. Jennifer Rubin has a nice rundown of all of the new difficulties Hillary mas made for herself lately with all of the usual foibles we associate with the adjective “Clintonian” but without any of the Big Dog’s roguish charm.

This includes her use of a personal email account at the State Department in what looks like an attempt to get around ethical and legal rules, and raking in millions in foreign donations.

But these are not the land mines that are going to do her in. Did you happen to catch this bit last week from a Q & A with Amy Chozick, the ABC News correspondent assigned to cover Hillary:

Covering Clinton, what is one thing that has surprised you about her? 

Amy Chozick: Hmm. She likes to drink. We were on the campaign trail in 2008 and the press thought she was just taking shots to pander to voters in Pennsylvania. Um, no.

Hmm, indeed.  These rumors have been around for quite a while.  Now it’s out, ever so slightly, in a MSM source.  Will any MSM reporter have the guts to ask her about this on the campaign trail, or during a televised debate?
