  • Hillary Clinton Renews Long-Shot Call To End The Electoral College

It was her total inability to recognize - and recognize quickly - the reasons why the server story was so dangerous for her campaign. She returned with Bubba to the governor's mansion again. Folks who loved him the day before that losing election angrily railed against him the very next day.

Nobody's perfect. Let's start with that.

Unlike former British Prime Ministers Margaret Thatcher or Angela Merkel, she had to suffer through the powerful-man syndrome with a husband whose hand in marriage pulled her onto a national stage, first in the unfamiliar territory of Arkansas as a governor's wife and then at the White House as the first lady.

After her failed run for the presidency in 2008, the Senate became a lackluster nest, and she leaped at the opportunity to show her mettle as secretary of state. She graduated there the same year I graduated from seminary on the West Coast. Now, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who engineered both those feats, has joined other Republicans in urging Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) to remove one more roadblock to judicial confirmations, the "blue slip" that senators have been able to use to block the appointment of judges from their home states.

For the record: "We all know what happened, Hillary: you're a loser!" She was wrong then and she's wrong now.

They mattered to her in those days she calls the Mad Men era of hyper-materialism, the onset of the postmodern age. Tillich, she writes, "sensed a feeling of meaningless, emptiness, doubt and cynicism - all expressions of despair, of our separation from the roots and the meaning of our life".

Late-night humor: "Hillary Clinton's book 'What Happened' came out ... and I heard that it's almost 500 pages long".

She cites studying Alexis de Tocqueville and his astonishment at the "habits of the heart" he found in the 1830s among the American people, describing the U.S.as "a nation of volunteers and problem solvers who believed that their own self-interest was advanced by helping one another".

In the November election, Clinton beat Trump in the popular vote by nearly 2.9 million votes, but only won 227 electoral votes.
