Hillary Clinton, who was known for recycling tired lines during her failed attempts to boost Democratic candidates in 2014, is also spouting a lot of cliches in her 2016 bid for the presidency.
"I would be working in every way that I knew to bring our country together," Clinton said at the most recent Democratic debate about her plans in the White House.
"My name may be on the ballot, but I really feel like this election is about you," she told supporters after filing her paperwork for the New Hampshire primary.
"I can't think of anything more of an outsider than electing the first woman president," she said at the first Democratic debate in October.
"Maybe it's the grandmother in me, but I believe that part of public service is planting trees under whose shade you'll never sit," she said during an economics speech in July.
"I'm not running for some Americans but for all Americans," Clinton said while pursuing the Democratic nomination for the presidency.
On the couch with mega-fan Ellen DeGeneres, Clinton told the feverishly nodding host that "We do live in some really complicated and new, new times."
Her noxious interview with Lifetime host Amanda de Cadenet as her campaign, in the words of National Review, sought for the "9 billionth" time to humanize her, was a veritable platitude parade. Clinton passed along nuggets like "do the best you can" and "it's not whether you get knocked down in life, it's whether you get back up."
