By the time the 2015 Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner rolls around, it’s my guestimation that there will be at least three books and two documentaries mythologizing Hillary Clinton as she assumes her birthright as this country’s 45th president.
So why not add a feature film to Hillary’s more than 150 filmed appearances? Politico reported today that another overrated auteur has signed up to direct Rodham, a film about a 20-something HRC navigating Washington while writing love letters to Arkansas boyfriend Bill Clinton.
Rodham director James Ponsoldt has yet to cast the title character, however.
One of the most boring weeks during my time in Washington has given the press an opportunity to indulge in a gross habit: inflating Hillary Clinton’s already considerable reputation.
More than a month remains until President Barack Obama’s corporate-financed second inaugural, but he is already yesterday’s news. There are political battles to be fought and budgets to pass (or not pass) and most likely wars to wage and natural disasters to endure before the country elects its next president. But all of this is a sideshow to the chatterers and scribblers who are busy currying favor with the liberal establishment. The real story, we learn from our newspapers and magazines and blogs and television specials, is whether the current secretary of state will run for president in 2016.
