In her closing speeches Hillary Clinton has presented herself of unsurpassed vacuity. Speaking in Raleigh early this morning, she proclaimed: “We have to bridge the divides in this country. I want to be president for all of America. I want to be president for everyone.”
Clinton also said she wants to lead “an America where we build bridges not walls[.]” At least that is not vacuous. Message: illegal immigrants welcome here. They will remain a core constituency of the Democratic Party.
As she has for a while, Clinton presented herself as an apostle of love. She seeks an America “where we prove conclusively that, yes, love trumps hate.”
In Raleigh Clinton shared the stage with Lady Gaga. Gaga got in the spirit. She explained: “We can’t elect somebody that doesn’t care for the people. We can only elect somebody who does.” I think Gaga’s support of Clinton in North Carolina has something to do with bathrooms. Like Clinton herself, Gaga can gag you with the deep stuff.
In Philadelphia Hillary met up with Bill and Chelsea where she needed a little help from her friends to draw a crowd of 33,000 outside of Independence Hall. The talent included President and Mrs. Obama, Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi. Clinton presented herself as the candidate of unity in an election that is “a choice between division and unity.” Hillary is the candidate behind whom the Democrat/Media Axis can unite. She has proved that much already.
