Clinton: 'I'm not going to run again'


Clinton: 'I'm not going to run again'

Hillary Clinton in a new interview said she does not plan to run for president again but will continue her criticism of President Trump.

"No, I'm not going to run again," she told BBC Radio 4's "Woman's Hour" in comments aired on Tuesday, according to CNBC.

"I think I'm in a position where my voice will actually be magnified because I am not running," she said. "And there's a very good basis, as we watch Trump's support shrink, that people will say, 'Well, what she said was right, and now where do we go from here?'"

Her comments were aired after Trump tweeted on Monday that he wished Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, would run again.


Last time I was in Las Vegas airport.

There was a giant wall advertisement for a fully automatic shooting range depicting steroidal men and artificially enhanced women blasting the shit out of "perp targets".

Seems entirely appropriate.

586 dead or wounded.

This is incomprehensible.

Billboard on the drive home: "Pray for Las Vegas"

What's the point?

I generally don't scream at billboards. There are exceptions.

Horrible day. Tom Petty on top of the rest of the slaughter.

What sort of civic is worthy of worship?

A god?

Ancient by still worthy?

Would sacrifice a goat?

I drove past a cop on the highway today doing 70 and everything was fine.

I didn't get pulled over or anything. I think a sky-being might have been protecting me, or maybe not. How about you?

I couldn't do it.

I went to our high school to watch a volleyball match and when they did the obligatory "please rise for our national anthem" I couldn't. I ain't doing that no more. Not until the orange smurf in the white house either apologizes for his racist crap or leaves. The KGB* installed this regime, it aint my government and I owe it no respect at all.

* yes I know it's the FSB. Whatever.

For the first time this season I'll be watching the NFL

If only for the opening ceremonies.

Folk song for todays event.

Get on board, little children
Get on board, little children
Get on board, little children
There's room for many-a-more.

I hear the train a comin'
I hear her close at hand
I hear those car wheels rumblin'
And rollin' through the land.

Get on board, little children
Get on board, little children
Get on board, little children
There's room for many-a-more.

The fare is cheap
And all can go.
The rich and poor are there
No second class upon this train
No difference in the fare.

Public support for single payer health coverage grows, driven by Democrat

60% want government to provide healthcare for all.

A majority of those 60% want single-payer.
A huge majority of Democratic leaning voters want single payer.
