    The lady doth protest too much, methinks .......

    She just has to make sure she's not signing on to a sinking ship first. Sensible but nauseating.

    Hillary Clinton on being vice president: ‘Never say never’
    By Tamar Lapin

    Vice President Hillary Clinton? Well, never say never.

    Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres asked the former Secretary of State on Thursday whether she’d agree to be on the ticket of the of the eventual Democratic nominee, if she were asked.

    “Well, that’s not going to happen,” Clinton laughed. “But no, probably no.”

    Pushed on the question, Clinton, 72, reluctantly said she’d consider it.

    “I never say never because I believe in serving my country, but it’s never going to happen,” she said.

    Clinton recalled how she turned down former President Barack Obama twice when he asked her to be his Secretary of State.

    “I was shocked, I had no idea he was going to ask me, I turned it down twice,” she said.

    The former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee revealed on an appearance on the UK’s “Graham Norton Show,” in December that she’d been “deluged” with pleas to run again.

    “I’d have to make up my mind really quickly,” she said at the time, “because it’s moving very fast.”

    On Thursday’s episode of the “Ellen” show, Clinton spoke about the “Hillary” documentary and how she felt “emotionally drained” by having to rehash her husband former President Bill Clinton’s affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

    The four-part doc premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is set to debut on Hulu on March 6.

    Chat shows suit her fine which tells me she's done for good.

    Thankfully.

    I did feel sorry for her with what afflictions were showing during her last run, I don't like to see anything stumbling about unless it's pissed up and then it's fair game.

    Watched a little of the Democratic debate last night.

    Amy Klobuchar did very well. She always seems a bit nervous but who wouldn't be in that position. Another one to watch through an election cycle or two.

    Pete Buttigieg actually did dodge Linsey Davis' question. It seemed odd that she came back and pinned him on it. But they all weave and dodge and rarely answer direct questions.

    Warren was on her game spouting statistics. Here's one I hadn't heard mention of.
    Joe Biden spent way more on private jets in the third quarter than his top 2020 Democratic rivals

    Very much like UN conferences on climate change. Burn up oceans of fossil fuel to talk about global climate change. When they develop machines that run on hypocrisy we'll be all set. That's when ET will decide we've matured sufficiently and say hello.

    As for Yang and Steyr - yeah, right. Open the coffers.

    I have to stop at the gas station this morning. I'm going to start the pump and just spray fuel all over my truck because I know - I just know - that it'll seep into the right places and not cause any other problems.

    Remember when Hillary Clinton got six coin tosses in a row at the 2016 Iowa Democrat primary? Here's what a "coin toss" looks like at an Iowa Democrat primary (this one was used to give Buttigieg three state delegates instead of Sanders):



    Nothing sketchy about that at all...lol...

    Tucker Carlson just had my favorite YouTube political commentator, Jimmy Dore, on his show - and Jimmy spent his five minutes on the show carpet-bombing the airwaves with truth bombs ranging from the DNC rigging the primaries to the total corruption of our entire government:

    Biden's weird answer to a woman who asked a simple question.
