It Begins: Chicago Tribune Calls on Hillary to Drop Out
Hillary Clinton found another glass ceiling to break. No, not as the first candidate to be under federal investigation (see BREAKING: Clinton Email Investigation REOPENED...Because Anthony Weiner?! and Mike Pence Silences Chris Matthews on Hillary's Emails: 'My Son Would At Least Be Court-Martialed!'). She is the first major party candidate to be called on to step aside a week before Election Day. Even by left-leaning publications and organizations. Take it away, Chicago Tribune...
What if she is elected? Think of a nation suffering a bad economy and continuing chaos in the Middle East, and now also facing a criminal investigation of a president. Add to that congressional investigations and a public vision of Clinton as a Nixonian figure wandering the halls, wringing her hands.
The best thing would be for Democrats to ask her to step down now. It would be the most responsible thing to do, if the nation were more important to them than power. And the American news media — fairly or not firmly identified in the public mind as Mrs. Clinton's political action committee — should begin demanding it.
But what will Hillary do?
I think we know what Hillary will do...
Get it? Because she's killed people.
Allegedly. Much like her insatiable lesbianism.
But seriously, it really is remarkable that this is where we find ourselves. Democrats have spent the past eight years clearing a path so that Hillary Clinton is all they have. If she wins, which is still looking likely, Democrats will still have no bench, and the head of their party will enter the White House under investigation. She is such a weak candidate that she has the second highest unfavorability rating of any candidate to run for office. Her only saving grace is that she's running against Trump, who has the single highest unfavorability rating of any candidate to run for office. At this point, that still may not be enough.
What a time it is to be alive.
