Hillary Watch 2016: More pithiness from Mr. Carville

By Richard K. Barry

Maureen Dowd had a piece in The New York Times over the weekend in which James Carville gave one of those great quotes, this time about the fact that Hillary Clinton is certainly running for the presidency in 2016:
Running for president is like sex. No one ever did it once and forgot about it.

As I wrote a couple of days ago in the same context, Mr. Carville has a way of saying things. In this case, it's not a bad way to put it. 

Most people just can't walk away unless they can be convinced, absolutely convinced, it's over - that they can never do it again. No one could convince her of that because it's not true (and we're talking about a strong, credible, and very likely successful run for the presidency).

Like it or not, and I like it, she'll be back. 

One note to those Democrats who want a more leftish candidate: It ain't gonna happen. America doesn't do left, at least not in electoral politics. Hillary Clinton can win and keep the right-wing bastards at bay for another eight years. Take what you can get and forget what you can't have (or move to another country).
