It looks like Hillary Clinton won’t go through that humble stage, the one that most losing politicians experience when they finally realize they were not the people’s choice after losing an election. Hillary is a little bit different than most losing candidates in history. She actually still believes that she was the choice of the American public for their president, and she’s launched a resistance group as her newest platform to spread the word that she’s back and ready to fight.
The Australian News suggests this resistance group created by Hillary is really a “get Trump move.” They describe this Onward Together group as a “new organization to empower Democrats and liberal groups” as they get they collect Trump-opposing candidates for the midterm elections in 2018.
Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to announce she’s come out of the woods and after “reflecting” over the last few months, she’s decided to go forward with a citizen’s movement. Hillary tweeted, “We’re launching Onwards Together to encourage people to get involved, organize, and even run for office.”
Unlike the typical political approach of politicians in years gone by, Hillary sounds like she’s ready to fight a war. Instead of picking up the pieces, she claims they will approach the “fights ahead” with “passion and determination.” She claims that they’ve already seen that it is possible to “resist bullying, hate, falsehoods and divisiveness,” when doing this together.
One of the biggest problems that people had when it came to Hillary Clinton – the candidate – was relating to her as a person. She comes off as being unapproachable to the masses. She offered plenty of fuel for that fire by participating in a minimal amount of public appearances and interviews on the campaign trail in comparison to her opponent, Donald Trump.
Hillary appeared to many as a woman who believed she was a shoe-in for the office of the president and because of this, she went along with the motions of campaigning without demonstrating so much as an ounce of worry that she wouldn’t make it. There wasn’t much sweat equity involved from Hillary herself as Trump was doing appearance after appearance on a daily basis. That changed for Hillary in the final two weeks or so, but it was too late. Still, Hillary insists that if the election were held on October 27, she would be president today, as seen in the Facebook post below from the New York Daily News.
This is the type of stuff she has to stop doing. Telling people that she was robbed of the presidency isn’t doing much for her image today. When on the campaign trail, Hillary lacked that energy level needed to rally the nation around her. The energy level was contagious coming from Trump and his camp and once that caught on with the masses, Trump was a force to be reckoned with while Hillary continued on with a dainty campaign. Now she’s coming out swinging and ready to battle?
Is Hillary’s post-election plan of creating a resistance group paving the way for her to take a swipe at a 2020 run for the White House? It could be the testing grounds for Hillary and the Democrats to see how receptive the public is to giving her another chance at breaking that glass ceiling? According to USA Today, Hillary had this to say about her election loss.
“This year hasn’t been what I envisioned,” which was noted in one of the several tweets she shared on Monday. She continued with, “but I know what I’m still fighting for: a kinder, big-hearted, inclusive America. Onward!”
So far, Hillary has said the group’s leadership includes former Vermont governor Howard Dean, who was also a 2004 candidate for president. It appears Hillary won’t have much time left for her now infamous walks through the woods as she is lining up her soldiers for the resistance movement against Trump. With writing a book, which is due out later this year, and leading Onward Together, it sounds like Hillary has her work cut out for her.
The Onward Together website has Hillary’s motto on its home page which is,
“Resist, insist, persist, enlist. — Hillary Rodham Clinton”
Not much of a rhyme to this motto, and it is also a bit of a tongue twister. In a nutshell, it sounds as if she plans to bounce back from her ill-fated presidential campaign by being pushy. That’s not what the people want out of Hillary and if the election loss wasn’t enough evidence of this, then she’ll never realize how she needs to change.
Hillary never appeared humble and she never demonstrated humility, which might have been the most reasonable emotion after an election loss of this magnitude. Instead, she came out of the woods pointing the finger of blame at anything and anybody that crossed her path.
If Hillary could only stop being her own biggest fan and admit to herself and the voters that she is only human and that she has made mistakes in the past and more than likely she will make more mistakes in the future, it would be a start. Donald Trump is a people’s president, he is more interested in talking to the coal miners than he is with people from Wall Street. Hillary carries herself in an elite-like mode that works against her.
