My answer to What are Hillary Clinton's political vulnerabilities as a presidential candidate in 2016?

Answer by Abbey Laurel-Smith:

#JamesMonroe, in #France, was informed about the #AmericanConstitution, and how it was formulated. He looked through the list of attendees, and was quick to note their credentials – as eminent civil servants, traders, landed Barons and soldiers now turned statesmen.

He therefore wrote in his journal, warning future #Americans not to ever create “demi-Gods” In today’s political campaign circle, #HillaryClinton is a perfect fit for this description. Fact is she’s been in American #politics longer than any of the #FoundingFathers. And She’s been closer to office the any of the Founding Fathers.

Therefore, if i were to answer the question, i’d say her political vulnerabilities as a #presidentialcandidate2016 lies in:

  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken as a woman living in a manly world and not doing anything spectacular to break out of the mold.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken as public official for the past twenty five years.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken and activity as a lawyer and a civil servant.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken as First Lady in Arizona.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken as two term First Lady in the White House.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken as a two term Senator representing the state of New York.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken as a Secretary of State.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken as the Secretary of State – head of the Defense.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken as the Secretary of State – head of the CIA with Patreus in charge.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken as Secretary of State – head of foreign affairs.
  • Her record as an established Democrat.
  • Her record of of activity and nature of action taken on education in Arkansas.
  • Her record of of activity and nature of action taken on sales tax increase in the state of Arkansas.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken on social security reform.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken on healthcare reform.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken when it comes to nominating officials and possible candidates for her husband.
  • Her fundraising activities in the white House as a First Lady.
  • Her fundraising activities as the Secretary of State.
  • Her record of activity and nature of action taken to avoid paying taxes by setting up offshore fundraisers.

The list is endless.

As said above, she’s a perfect fit for what James Monroe warned us about in his notes on the Constitution. She’s a “demi-God” pure and simple.

She will be voted in because of her gender, but not because of her record. And I suspect she will face a much tougher opposition with the #Republicans than the current president, Mr. #Obama.
