The Era of Big Clintons is Soon Over
YahooNews is a leading contender for Headline of the Day honors for “The Era of Big Clintons is Soon Over,” which they’ve appended to an AP piece by Calvin Woodward. The key ‘graph:
One quarter of Americans have never known life without a Clinton trying for or having the presidency. Millions have gone from diapers to diplomas in the time of the Clintons.
And, of course, a Bush or a Clinton had been on the national ballot every four years since 1980. Unless Hillary or Jeb gets the veep slot — which strikes me as exceedingly unlikely — that streak will end, too.
As to the premise of the headline and the piece, I’m not so sure. For one thing, I’m still not convinced Hillary will drop out gracefully, making the “soon” premature. And it’s all but a given that Chelsea will make her own run at some point.
