Predictions: Hillary Impeached, Beyond Trump

If Hillary weren't damaged goods she would win in a landslide. But she won't and if the Republicans maintain control of both the Senate and House we will have 4 more years of stalemate. When people bring up the Supreme Court as a reason to vote for Hillary they laugh when I tell them the Republicans are willing to wait out the 4 years since they think they can win for sure in 2020.

But then again when we think of the flimsy Bill Clinton impeachment fiasco why not double down by impeaching Hillary using email crimes and Benghazi as reasons.

So imagine the scenario - sometime in the 3rd year, especially after the mid-term elections in 2018, they tie her up in impeachment.

Now that may be dumb in some ways in that wouldn't they prefer running against her again in 2020? So why put her in a position where she might not run again and have the Dems come up with a better candidate?

While some people assumed there might be a movement from the left in the Dem party what we have is a party totally controlled by the old guard -- the DFER types.  That is where the money is coming from.  With the Bernie movement fizzling and fighting with each other, the future of the progressives doesn't look good as an organized force. It can only happen outside the Dem party and Green has not caught on enough or evidence the ability to organize much.

In the meantime, the Republicans will also undergo some post-Trump issues. There is a good comprehensive piece with the 4 scenarios from Trumpism taking over the party to status quo.

  1. The Clinton Foundation entanglements are potentially more damaging than the e-mails and Benghazi combined.
