Donald Trump is running for the office of chief executive of the United States.  Executives must make decisions.  Some are difficult.  Hillary Clinton wrote a whole book on that subject.

hard_choices_06-10-14-Z-14

The problem for Donald Trump is that he just cannot decide.  First there was the VP announcement fiasco.  It was going to be Pence, all the pundits predicted, as the Indiana governor landed at Teterboro in N.J. Holed up at a hotel and awaiting further instruction from the Trump team, Pence was thrown a curve when the Donald decided that he was not so sure about his decision.  Hillary for America unveiled a new ad targeting Trump’s vacillation on the matter.

NEW HFA Web Video: Indecisive Donald

Following Donald Trump’s announcement that Governor Mike Pence is his running mate, Hillary for America is releasing a new web video, “Indecisive Donald,” raising the question of how Donald Trump will run the country if this is how he makes a decision selecting a Vice President. Yesterday, Donald Trump received widespread criticism for his erratic and indecisive handling of the VP nominating process.

WATCH: Indecisive Donald

But at least you can say that once he announced the decision it was with resolve and a foot forward … or can you?

Trump-Pence campaign unveils new logo

  Donald Trump and Mike Pence’s campaign unveiled their new logo on Saturday, one day after a logo for the campaign was widely mocked on social media for appearing to be sexually suggestive.

Read more and see the original logo and some funny tweets >>>>

In the run-up to the nominating convention, Trump’s equivocation is two for two, and that is not counting past flip-flops and waffles.  A woman should be punished for an abortion, or, wait, maybe it should be the doctor.  No matter what, I am keeping Corey Lewandowski on … until I don’t. Then there is the matter of people who performed work for him that he decided was good until it came time to pay them, and then he didn’t like it that much and decided not to pay them, and then he hired the same people for more work that maybe he wasn’t going to like.

It is not just that Americans deserve a POTUS who doesn’t shuffle and shift.   It’s that the finger hovering over the button cannot afford to be jumpy.  Once they are launched, you cannot get the missiles back.

Monday night, Carly Fiorina was Jimmy Fallon’s guest on the Tonight Show.  She was personable, which I did not expect.  She was entertaining – especially when she sang at the end. If you go to the Tonight Show website you can see the cherry-picked clips wherein Carly Fiorina actually seems … what’s the word I am looking for?  Likable?

The clips show far from the whole story though.  They are the highlights and ignore the deep, dark, scary stuff she sandwiched into the middle while fast-talking like Rosalind Russell in a 1930’s movie about a  … well …  a female CEO.

To see these comments, you have to access the full episode and fast forward to Fiorina’s segment.  It involves sitting through a lot of commercials.  I am sorry.  Nothing you can do about those.  There is no “skip ad” option.

She began with language Hillary’s people identify with and agree with. Faith is good. There was something sweet from her mother about God’s gifts to you and your gift to God being fulfilling the use of your God-given gifts.  This stemmed, of course, from Ben Carson’s recent remarks.  She absolutely disagrees with Carson, because, of course, all faith is good.  The Pope is also good, but Democrats are bad and fail to agree with him on the sanctity of life.

Carly met Vladimir Putin once at APEC.  Let’s take this one in two parts.

APEC:  Apparently Fiorina wants to push this one APEC speech as her official foreign policy experience. She repeats endlessly her mantra about Hillary Clinton’s tenure at the State department being all about air miles.  If you do a search on this blog for APEC this is where the search takes you.

Note that first entry, the most recent.  Republicans like to send up choruses of “Where was Hillary when Benghazi was under attack?”  In fact, she had just flown in from APEC in Vladivostok at the end of an extensive and exhausting trip and many conferences.  It was never unusual for Secretary Clinton to go straight to C Street from the plane. She flew in late and was at the office the next morning, just for the record.

Also for the record, can Carly Fiorina name other international conferences where she has addressed and rubbed elbows with world leaders?

https://still4hill.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/09-08-12-12.jpg?w=500

Now for Putin with whom Carly shared a few minutes in the green room before a speech once. I am picturing him now trying to remember ever encountering her. She says he can be charming and funny.  Hillary knows that. She also knows he can be stubborn and dismissive of women.  Dealing with that dismissiveness requires knowing that it exists.

On this particular trip, Hillary was not scheduled to meet with Putin about the Iran sanctions.  Uh – yes, parenthetically.  Hillary worked hard for years to get those sanctions. She had flown in from a St. Patrick’s Day full of meetings with a host of Irish officials, stopped over at Shannon for refueling and greeted returning troops also there refueling.  As of the 18th, no meeting with Putin was on the agenda.  Then this.

Breaking: Hillary WILL Meet With Putin After All

March 18, 2010

… Several advance press releases and  schedules made a point of the fact that she would not be meeting with Putin.

Read more >>>>

Then this.  It was not the first time she was not scheduled to meet with him and managed to wrangle him into a pow-wow. The bonus was that she got results.  Sometimes I think that Hillary does things to be able to say that she gave it her best effort.  Hillary’s best efforts get excellent results.  Putin liked to leave Hillary to Lavrov and Medvedev, but she knew when she needed to sit with him, and she got those meetings and got results.

Fiorina says she would not speak to him at all.  That would suit him just fine.  There is something to be gained from a one-on-one with him as Hillary Clinton knows.

Hillary Clint, on Gets Putin To Budge – A Little

March 19, 2010

Let me be clear, this is not about the sanctions themselves with which you may agree or disagree. It is about Hillary Clinton. Yesterday I said that I thought Putin would be impervious to her persuasive powers given that he appears to be very dedicated to the manufacture of nuclear energy as an export business for Russia. Well, if this report is accurate, I, one of the die-hard Hillary Hold-Outs (yes, a Hi-Ho) am now *hanging head in shame* for having doubted that she could get Putin to concede – even if it is a little.  Note to self: Never again underestimate Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ability to argue a good case.

Read more >>>>

Well,  here we have the transcript of Secretary Clinton’s remarks with Putin.   Actually, I fail to see where he “bombarded” her (as I saw it characterized in the press).  He called her “Your Excellency.”  🙂  Even if he had “bombarded” her,  she is used to it and knows that it is not personal.   She knows her job.

Carly warned that we should not forget that he is a KGB guy.  Yes, Hillary has already made that eminently clear.  That was no news to us.

Or, what the heck!  Just go here>>>>>

Then came Carly Fiorina as Napoleon. Only taller … and female.  This is the part the Tonight Show web editors figured you did not need to see and can see only if you painstakingly go through the video and consume all the commercials.  Sorry.

Rather than speak to Putin, here is what Mme. President Fiorina would do.  I am not sure you will see this elsewhere.

  • Immediately start rebuilding the 6th fleet;
  • Rebuild the missile defense program in Poland;
  • Conduct regular military exercises in the Baltics;
  • Put 1000 more troops in Germany;
  • Lead in Syria as, she said we should have three years ago and Obama and Clinton have not.

I take strong exception to that last allegation!  Look here >>>>>

Time to Revisit Hillary Clinton on Syria

September 4, 2015

I also wonder where those extra 1000 troops will be coming from.  Fallon did not ask. His job was to keep things light.

That is what is between the sweetbread of Carly’s Mom’s faithful advice in the beginning of the segment and the song for Snickers to a 1950s rock tune at the end.   Note to Carly Fiorina:  The Cold War is over.  Note to Republicans in general, the 1950s are over.

Other candidates are making the late night rounds.  Bernie Sanders was on with Colbert, and the night Fiorina was with Fallon, Ted Cruz was with Colbert.  Meh.

All the Republicans are working from the same talking points memo about Hillary except Fiorina who has her own Hillary attack system.

We have our own Hillary defense system.  Carly Fiorina may be the Republican female candidate whom they are pitting against Hillary Clinton. The comparison ends at female. Fiorina likes to tell people she began as a secretary. She lacks Hillary’s brand of secretarial experience, however, by thousands of air miles, summits, conferences, treaties, strategic plans, MOUs, and handshakes.  In no way does she measure up.

****EDITED TO ADD****

Well he is up to something, Carly, and I seriously doubt that not speaking to him is the wisest foreign policy.  Grow up.  Stop singing your mom’s Bill Haley and the Comets songs, or whatever that was.  Not speak to him?  What is wrong with you?  Oh, wait!  I know!  You shouldn’t be running for president.  It is that simple.  Well you can if you want to but you are #WrongForAmerica.

Putin Said to Plan Islamic State Strikes With or Without U.S.

Bloomberg) — President Vladimir Putin, determined to strengthen Russia’s only military outpost in the Middle East, is preparing to launch unilateral airstrikes against Islamic State from inside Syria if the U.S. rejects his proposal to join forces, two people familiar with the matter said.

Putin’s preferred course of action, though, is for America and its allies to agree to coordinate their campaign against the terrorist group with Russia, Iran and the Syrian army, which the Obama administration has so far resisted, according to a person close to the Kremlin and an adviser to the Defense Ministry in Moscow.

U.S. ‘Receptive’

SNIP

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday the U.S. has become more “receptive” to Moscow’s position. The U.S. has tempered two planks of its Syrian policy — that Assad must step down immediately and that it won’t negotiate with his government, according to comments made by Secretary of State John Kerry on Sept. 17.

The next day, the U.S. and Russian defense chiefs held direct talks for the first time since the conflict in Ukraine started. They agreed to continue dialog to prevent clashes between their forces in Syria.

Following her stellar performance on Fallon last night, Hillary Clinton made an appearance at the Union Diner in Laconia NH and then went on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.

For those who thought Carly Fiorina’s stern assaults last night were worth anything,  Hillary cited her many accomplishments as recorded in her books.  Her work as FLOTUS and NY Senator as well as her many accomplishments at the State Department are recounted in Living History and Hard Choices.  Her State Department record is also archived in detail on this blog.  As for Fiorina’s solemn eyewitness account of a video, Hillary clarified that situation as well.

“Don’t attack women’s health care. And don’t shut down the government.” Hillary’s message to Republicans:

Embedded image permalink

Fiorina made her comments with a rock-hard, stone-cold demeanor and in an ominous voice.  Hillary refuted it all easily.  She was open, at ease, very thorough, and cheerful.  She may have been told by her baby daughter “No sing,”  but Hillary’s voice is actually quite musical as is her laugh.

Hillary has penned a revised epilogue for the paperback edition of Hard Choices.  Here is an excerpt.

Hard_Choices-2015

Becoming a grandmother has made me think deeply about the responsibility we all share as stewards of the world we inherit and will one day pass on. Rather than make me want to slow down, it has spurred me to speed up. As Margaret Mead said, children keep our imaginations fresh and our hearts young, and they drive us to work for a better future. I’ve also returned again and again to this question of universality – how much we all have in common even if the circumstances of our lives may be different. As you’ve seen throughout this book, one of the defining themes of my time as Secretary of State was our increasing global interdependence. Despite all the division and discord in the world, which sometimes can seem overwhelming, the basic fact of the 21st century is that we’re more connected than ever. If the United States continues to lead the world in the years ahead, as I believe it can and must, it will be because we have learned how to define the terms of our interdependence to promote more cooperation and shared prosperity and less conflict and inequality. As we’ve seen since the first edition of this book was published in June 2014, the negative side of interdependence remains potent — whether it was the spread of virulent new strands of extremism in the Middle East or old-style nationalism in Europe or a deadly epidemic in Africa. Our job is to build up the positive side. The United States and the other great democracies have to redouble our efforts to empower moderates and marginalize extremists everywhere, and to stand firmly and united in pursuit of a more just, free, and peaceful world. That’s the world I want for Charlotte and for all our kids.

Among all the gifts and cards that arrived not long after Charlotte did was a package from a woman who had watched her 83-year old mother stitch together beautiful quilts for many years and wanted to give it a shot. “This is my first and only attempt to sew a memory quilt for anyone,” she explained. Inside I found a red, white, and black patchwork that included panels with inspiring inscriptions and famous photos of Chelsea through the years. I held it up to the light and had to smile at the familiar images. A “memory quilt” was a good name for it. It was hard to believe that the baby girl I was holding in one photo could be the same poised and lovely woman being married in another. Yet there she was. I wondered for a moment what a quilt of my own life would look like. There were so many people who had taught me so much. And now I had one more. In just a few months, Charlotte had already helped me see the world in new ways. There was so much more to do. So many more panels waiting to be filled in. I folded up the quilt and got back to work.

August is the month when Hillary tries to take what passes for a vacation in her world.   As Secretary of State,  she took a break in August despite Henry Kissinger’s warning not to make such an attempt.  Several times in those years, we saw her meager respite disturbed by world events or the call of duty.  This year, even as a private citizen, Hillary Clinton proved that she just cannot quite disconnect herself.  She did spend time relaxing in Amagansett, but not without interruptions to sign some books.

She began the month home in Chappaqua congratulating students.
