Hillary Clinton (search) is running so hard you might occasionally see some perspiration.
As if we needed further evidence of the running Hillary Clinton, yesterday she offered a suggestion for a new law, which, if enacted, would probably guarantee her election.
She proposed a national holiday for voting. The theory here is that people want to vote, but they can't because they're working. So if it was a day off, they would vote.
Frankly I think they would go do something fun and turnout numbers would fall even deeper in an already deep hole ... if you're a Democrat.
She also wants to repeal the rule or law or tradition that felons are not allowed to vote. This one is really good. Evidently she thinks, and Democrats think, that felons will vote for Democrats. Evidently she thinks people who have been to prison are more simpatico with the Dems than with conservatives.
First, I don't know if that is true, though it has the suspicious whiff of truth, but secondly, do Democrats want to be known as the jailbird party? Really?
If you've done time, you're a Democrat — vote for Hillary. As a slogan it's probably a little clunky but you get the idea.
Does Hillary think these suggestions will become law? I doubt it.
Frankly, I can't figure out why she is suggesting these odd ideas other than the fact that if they were to become law it would help Democrats immensely, and secondly, let's face it, they are actual ideas.
If you look around, you don't hear much in the way of ideas coming from any Democrats — mostly it's just we hate Bush.
These are real, honest God ideas. So give her credit there.
By the way, are the big money Dems flocking to Hillary? No. Last night in New York, Hollywood mogul David Geffen said he does not think Hillary can win the White House. He said in order to run successfully you have to have more than pure ambition. Ouch. That's from a Democrat and California liberal. Go figure.
Speaking of which, don't miss my Hollywood vs. America special on Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET.
