Thursday Hillary Bash - biopic 'followup' edition

Earlier this week I had to briefly comment on the news that a Hillary Clinton biopic was in the works for a release in 2016 during the run up to the presidential election.  Breitbart also had a list of things you wouldn't be likely to see in the biopic.

You won't see her portrayed in the way she looks in this picture either.  From Benghazi to Whitewater to talking to ghosts, she will be getting all of the slobbering and fawning to be expected from a liberal press, and none of the unpleasantness a 'fair' biopic .

She is destined to get glowing treatment in her biopic, but she is not destined to be president.

The last time a candidate who lost the nomination and was nominated the next time around George McGovern who pseudo-ran in 1968 and was nominated when he ran a full campaign in 1972.  Of course he lost the election to Richard Nixon.  That's been a while.  Historically it has been Republicans who gave the next-in-line a turn as they did in 2012 with Mitt Romney.  He lost.  Democrats could be picking up a losing trend by selecting Hillary this time around. I'm sure that most Republicans and conservatives would be comforted by that fact if it were not for a media that has already started slobbering over her they way they were with Obama in 2007 and 2008.
 
That prospect is frightening for conservatives.  Another Democrat victory would herald a big Republican problem, just as not being able to defeat Obama in 2012 appeared to have done.  But this would be worse.  It would mean that since Bill Clinton won in 1992, 1996 and Obama won in 2008 and 2012, and Hillary in 2016, it would mean 5 of the last 7 presidential elections have been won by Democrats, and 1 of 2 Bush's wins was not a very strong win.  That's what's called a rout.  On the other hand a GOP win would make the score a little more even 4-3 for Democrats.
 
Liberals in the media are doing their best to ensure that rout happens.  A biopic right before an election is the farthest thing from fair one could imagine, but we will have to imagine it nonetheless.
