Daniel Greenfield, Money has always been Hillary’s solution to everything.
She threw $212 million into a failed effort to beat Obama in ’08. Back then it was the most money ever spent by a losing Democrat on a primary race. Then she did it again in the last election blowing through $1.2 billion.
Hillary Clinton and her supporters spent a record $1.2 billion for her losing presidential campaign — twice as much as the winner, Donald Trump, according to the latest records.
Obama had spent $1.2 billion to win in ’12. Romney had spent less, but over a billion. So the amount is arguably unprecedented, but it’s still an enormous waste of money.
Donors aren’t too likely to show up for a third Hillary run. Not after she blew through nearly a billion and a half on two failed campaigns. So fantasies of a third run are likely to remain that.
Hillary would never have gotten as far as she did without Obama’s backing and the mantle of inevitability. Those are things she won’t have in any future election. It’s not inconceivable that she might gnaw over the idea.
But that’s it.
