What Does Hillary Want?

What Does Hillary Want

“What does Hillary want?” asks Hillary, echoing the pundits.

“What does Hillary want?” ask pundits, echoing Hillary echoing the pundits.

What Hillary needs is some way out from under her crushing $20 million campaign debt, a difficult job for a loser.

If Senator Clinton officially conceded she could not legally retire the debt within the campaign finance laws. If the Senator doesn’t raise the cash by the time of the convention, her personal $11 million loan to her own campaign becomes an unrecoverable contribution.

That is why she hasn’t conceded.

She can suspend the campaign without conceding it and still accept contributions from her own supporters, even from another campaign and supporters of another candidate who can’t stand the added suspense of her suspense.

But this is the 21st century, with a 24/7 news cycle and the vast echo chamber of the blogosphere, with every Jane and Dick her/his own pundit. There must be more to it than money. There must.

Even if there isn’t.

So what does Hillary think now? She thinks: “What can Hillary get?”
