Thursday, May 21, 2015 The Arrogance of Presumption

Yes, as it turns out, Hillary Rodham has presidential aspirations.

In fact, we've known that she has the aspiration for years. We watched her pursue (sometimes with the "help" of Rush Limbaugh) the right to seek the office of the President as the candidate of the Democratic Party back in 2007-08, only to fall as the last remaining alternative to Barack Obama. We knew that her pursuit of the Senate, and her acceptance of the State Department appointment, were in furtherance of her intention to pursue the Presidency.

So really, who could be surprised?

Yet there is a certain presumption in an email address that is at least 3 or 4 years old, such as HRod17? No fooling around here folks, she's made the claim for the office and set the target, and she has been emailing with some group of friends and correspondence during this entire period with the presidential aspiration plainly stated via the very email address she created.
