Another Lackluster Democratic Debate

Saturday, 19 December 2015 03:31 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Hillary Clinton appears to be running the first stealth campaign for president.

This is not without precedent. Contenders for the job of capo di tutti capi often conducted their efforts in the background. First because it was the Mafia and it paid to keep a low profile with the FBI. And second because your rival’s opposition research could often prove fatal to both you and your campaign.

Sooner or later the country is going to learn that Hillary is running for president and chances are they’re going to want to know what she stands for and what she intends to do in office. I get the impression Hillary is dreading the day that happens.

The last Democrat debate of the year is strangely scheduled to occur on Saturday night of the last shopping weekend before Christmas. Every store in the mall that has a functioning TV screen will be featuring an NFL game between the New York Jets and the Dallas Cowboys.

As near as I can tell the only stores in America’s shopping malls that evening that would intentionally have Hillary on TV is mattress sellers and that’s only so people testing a new bed can doze off easier.

But don’t worry, the Democrat National Committee plans to make it all up in 2016 when the next action–packed debate will be taking place opposite the Super Bowl. C–SPAN plans wall–to–wall coverage.

There have been some rumors surrounding this debate that I would like to knock down once and for all. First Hillary does take this debate seriously. Consequently she won’t be participating via a Skype connection while wearing pajamas. Hillary will be onstage giving viewers the full pantsuit treatment.

Second, Hillary won’t be reading from either a list of who’s been naughty or who’s been nice — although Huma is rumored to have an up–to–date spreadsheet.

Finally, the Clinton campaign is no longer insisting that the nameplate in front of Bernie Sanders’ podium read: Grinch.

Low viewership — even if that’s what Hillary wants — is one of the disadvantages of a listless campaign with only three contestants. Say what you will about the cattle call on the Republican side, ratings for GOP debates get a healthy infusion of viewers from the families and friends of the many candidates.

The only way to save the Democrat’s Saturday effort and get a decent number of viewers would be to have Donald Trump on the question panel.
