In one sense, it should come as a surprise to no one that #Hillary Clinton’s campaign memoirs are going to be one long whine about how everybody from the Russians to James Comey stole the election from her. Politicians’ memoirs are generally exercises in blame placing and patting oneself on the back. The only exception was “Decision Points,” an excellent study on what went into the major decisions taken by former President George W. Bush. However, according to sources, Hillary Clinton’s memoir is going to be epic in its self-pity.

Bombshell or bomb?

People who were willing to talk about the upcoming book claim that it is going to be a “bombshell.” Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey suggests that is half right.

Based on the lack of sales that Clinton’s previous tome, “Hard Choices,” had, Morrissey is likely on to something. Hillary Clinton is yesterday’s news, an unquiet ghost who is still walking around and breathing, but who no one wants to have around, even her erstwhile supporters who still seethe in disappointment. Even someone as partisan as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer noted that Clinton had no one to blame but herself.

For Hillary Clinton denial is not just a river in Egypt

Most people who have lost as thoroughly as Hillary Clinton did want to know why and what they could have done differently. Ms. Clinton, on the other hand, seems convinced that without certain outside forces -- the Russians, Comey, the inherent misogyny of the American voters -- she would be in the Oval Office and the current president would be back at Trump Tower seething and tweeting up a storm (sort of what he is doing now, but from the White House).

Why did Hillary lose?

It has been said before, but it bears repeating that Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election because she was a terrible candidate and a terrible human being. Her stump performance was uninspiring, with the sole rationale for voting for her seemingly, “I am woman. Hear me roar.” Or, in this case, whine. And, the laundry list of evil Clinton ran the gamut, from trashing 12-year-old rape victim Kathy Shelton, to the unsecured email server.

Because every human soul is precious, one cannot help but hope that Hillary Clinton will finally come to terms with her shortcomings and conclude that she didn’t get to achieve her lifelong goal of becoming President of the United States because she didn’t deserve to. Then she can beg for forgiveness, especially from all the people she has wronged over the years. #2016 Election #Clinton Campaign
