WHAT CAN HILLARY BORROW FROM BOBBY?

Apr. 20. 2015  By Jack Jodell (in association with BURR DEMING of FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column).

Happy start of another week, readers! Well, it’s now official: Former First HILLARY L 1Lady, later Senator from New York, and most recently, Secretary of State  Hillary Clinton, has launched her campaign to become the next Democratic Party President of the United States. The office almost seems  to be hers for the taking, as she has thus far received no formidable challenges from her own party and would bury all possible Republican challengers in a landslide. Her candidacy is viewed with coolness or almost indifference among numerous progressives. Many feel that she is too corporate and far too close to Wall Sreet to be of much use to average Americans. Yet, as we are reminded by our podcaster extraordinaire, Burr Deming, public officials can BOBBY KENNEDYand often do grow in many ways as they seek higher political office. Burr points to the example of Robert F. Kennedy, who had previously occupied the very same New York Senate seat as Hillary did, and suggests that if Hillary were to emulate him in certain respects, it would be very beneficial.  There is great merit in this suggestion.

BURR!In Burr’s own words, “Can Hillary Clinton accept one simple gesture from Bobby Kennedy and become the excellent President we’re hoping for?

Bobby Kennedy  began as a law enforcement official who seemed unable to communicate with those on the other side of the poverty line. In five years, he became noted for his ability to transcend racial, economic, and class tensions.  

His journey during those five years began with a program of listening and learning.   

Half a century later, what can Hillary Clinton learn from his experience?”
