Hillary: ‘I’m ready to help [Biden] in any way I can’
After Joe Biden picked Kamala Harris as his running mate, conservative columnist Ben Shapiro joked that perhaps Biden should hire a food-taster.
It was a shorthand commentary on Harris’s naked, if not ruthless, ambition as a politician and the unscrupulous way she goes after what she wants.
But recently the person who is arguably the most ambitious and duplicitous politician in America also offered her services to would-be President Biden.
The unsinkable Hillary Clinton, who refuses to retreat from the limelight despite losing two presidential elections, including the 2008 Democratic primary, and dodging criminal prosecution for her scandalous email server, has said she is ready to “help” Biden, should he beat President Donald Trump in November.
“I’m ready to help in any way I can because I think this will be a moment where every American — I don’t care what party you are, I don’t care what age, race, gender, I don’t care — every American should want to fix our country,” Clinton said during “The 19th Represents Summit,” a gathering of journalists and influential American women to mark the 100th anniversary of women being allowed to vote.
“So if you’re asked to serve, you should certainly consider that,” she added.
Hillary is not the only has-been Biden may bring into the fold, should he win on Nov. 3.
As far back as April, once it seemed clear he would not be denied the nomination, CNN speculated on former Biden rivals filling up his Cabinet.
For example, CNN gushed about Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, whose one-issue 2020 campaign zeroed in on climate change, would lead the Environmental Protection Agency. Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, if not elected to the Senate this year, could head up the Interior Department. Pete Buttigieg could serve as secretary of Defense or State, while Sen. Amy Klobuchar could become attorney general. And let’s not forget that Biden himself offered gun-grabber Beto O’Rourke the opportunity to help form gun policy.
Hillary, of course, was President Barack Obama’s first secretary of state, and we know how well that went, with the murder of four Americans, including our ambassador, in Libya, the failed Russia “reset” policy and the fact that it appeared she used her office to raise money for the now-defunct Clinton Foundation.
But perhaps the reason to keep Hillary relegated to the sidelines came in a comment that showed Hillary has lost all sense of humor or irony.
“I have every reason to believe that Trump is not going to go silently into the night if he loses,” Clinton told The 19th Represents Summit.
