It would appear that Hillary Clinton is going to announce she’s running for President this weekend (in the most expensive part of Brooklyn, because you know… income inequality). You know what that means! Make sure you aren’t on the wrong side of history when she breaks through the glass ceiling. Seriously, you don’t want to be on the wrong side of any glass ceiling when it breaks. The shards can cut you, and your insurance probably won’t cover it because you know… Obamacare.
Here’s all you need to know about Hillary Clinton running for President. This quote.
If Clinton wins a third straight Democratic presidential term, it will reaffirm the power of identity in American politics. But if she loses, Democrats will find themselves in a messy identity crisis, without many leaders left to turn to.
And this tweet.
For the 9000th time; she's a bad candidate who wants to run as the de facto incumbent with a Rose Garden strategy in an age of social media.

The quote speaks for itself, because it’s the Obama strategy where “I say this on to you now…and if you disagree with me, you’re a racist.” Just replace “racist” with “sexist” and you have the same lies with the same media swearing by it.
The tweet is where things are going to be the most interesting. Mock the President all you want (and we do, regularly), he’s set the benchmark for how any President must now engage with the voters. Conservatives can complain about him doing videos with Buzzfeed and interviews with YouTube celebrities, but that’s where the voters are (not to mention the green lipstick, bathtub full of Fruit Loops girl asked better questions than anyone at MSNBC). A candidate needs to be engaging, comfortable in their own skin, and not afraid to take chances.
Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie and even Jeb Bush are also people who can do those things.
Hillary Clinton… well she needs to get a handle on keeping track of her emails first.
