HRC Self-Inflicted Campaign Wounds

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is in a world of self-inflicted hurt
The Teflon that protected her and the First Dude is flaking quickly into the scandal after scandal dirt
It is not that she is just perceived to be dishonest and untrustworthy but her unlikeability increases are stoked
How can we mere mortals relate to this woman who with a $10 million book advance could seek sympathy by claiming they were dead broke?
How can she be liked when in the campaign’s early stage
The press was cordoned off from her in a moving rope cage?
The IG’s report is a classic example her fatal flaw
That she and her husband have acted for so long as if above the law
As a young lawyer just out of Yale Law School
During Watergate she learned without hard evidence investigators look too often look like fools
Nixon created but failed to destroy his Watergate tapes
Hillary must have realized that had they been destroyed from impeachment he would escape
Nixon like Hillary must have thought no one would ever know
With executive privilege asserted to no one would he ever have to the tapes show
Hillary with her private server to conceal her quid quo pro quo at State abuse
Must have thought its existence would remain a secret and she could use only the personal emails were deleted excuse
Gruber’s observations notwithstanding, most Americans may be trusting but are not a stupid lot
With all the millions flowing to Bill for speeches and contributions to the Foundation, the logical fire in the smoke filled favor rooms was that she had been bought
Bill may be a great speaker but no one in his right mind could possibly believe
That he was being paid for priceless pearls of wisdom but rather for the favors the payors and donors sought to achieve
Dishonest, lack of judgment and a person to whom a growing number of Americans cannot relate
Even with her barking or yelling at the top of her lungs, her campaign is in a mode that excites not, only heavily just  sedates.
