The Ultimate Extreme Makeover

Have you noticed a subtle change in the depiction of Hillary Clinton of late? Every article I've seen recently that includes her picture has her smiling – and not just that phony, tight-ass conference-room smile, but a broad grin. This is in stark contrast to what we've seen for years now – what one observer called her “class warfare face”. So... what is going on here? The secretary of state is not the job one normally associates with Bozo-type grins. I say it's the beginning of a subtle remake in anticipation of next year's election – but the question then becomes, what's the agenda? Is she going to enter the primaries against Obama? No. More likely, she's going to get back into the elective office biz, either as a candidate for vice president (ever notice how totally dispensable Biden has become – if not a downright liability?) or to go back to the Senate... or something. To somehow expand her empire, in other words – which means to me that she has been thoroughly approved by, and granted a lifetime membership in, the Regime – perhaps at a higher rank than her husband, even. Who knows, it could even be the start of the 2016 campaign. In any case, it's interesting... and all I can say is, watch this space (and that face).
