Why is Hillary still a thing?

How much would you pay to hear Hillary Clinton speak? $5? $20?
Would you believe $50,000?

The event, set for October 16, seems to mark the first major form of activism in support of the Democratic Party's electoral efforts. Politico reported on Tuesday that the event -- titled "Dinner and conversation at the home of Hillary Rodham Clinton" -- will offer tickets as high as $50,000.

Why would someone pay that kind of money for access to Hillary, unless she still has influence with the DNC? And if she does still have influence, why?

Meanwhile, the RNC is collecting legal bribes by the truckload.

Republicans continue to experience a fundraising bounty from supporters, raising $20.8 million in July, almost three times as much as their Democratic opponents.

That was the largest amount ever received during the month of July in a non-election year which is twice the amount of money that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has on hand, according to Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
...
While the RNC indicates that it has augmented “major donors” from 33% to 45% of its fundraising base, it has also maintained its lead over the Democrats in terms of the number of small donors who give to the party.

"Augmenting major donors" is very unusual way of saying 'selling out to the ruling elites.' It takes a special skill to come up with terms like that.

Because she's a narcissistic sociopath who believes people are still interested in what she has to say, and are willing to pay for it.

Obviously, that blockbuster US-Canada stadium tour that fell flat on its ass face didn't change her high opinion of herself. This should be fun to watch.

To watch that woman get up there and blather on about her loss once again shows the rich are dumber than the rest of us in some ways, at least to me it does. $50k to sit through that hot mess? Money doesn't buy brains for damned sure.

That's the angle most of those "supporters" are looking at it.

If not for themselves, then for a relative or a friend.

They don't give a rat's ass about Hillary or any ideology.

@Bollox Ref to improve on the original, b&w offering from ca 1951, allegedly directed by Howard Hawks (uncredited). I will look up this remake and, if I don't have to pay for it, will watch, as I always enjoy a good Hollywood Alien movie, even as I suspect some of these movies are govt-encouraged propaganda to make us reflexively fear the aliens that are undoubtedly out there.

Nobody at the democratic convention wins the nomination in the first round.

Second round the super delegates get to vote.

Warren, Harris, etc. throw their backing to Biden.

Bind wins the nomination.

Selects Hillary as VP knowing he about to go down with dementia very soon.

Months later, Hillary becomes president.

--------------- OR -----------------------

Biden wins in second round of voting at the convention.

He finally comes to terms he is no longer cogent.

Biden gives the nomination to Hillary for a re-re-do.

Hillary barely wins.

Hillary drops a nuke on Moscow and Bejing to show she has moxy and guts. Bill comes out publicy as a crossdresser wearing Hillary's blue dress.

@MrWebster

Unfortunately I can see that happening just as you describe. Lots of people are sure that she is still in the running and that's why she is staying relevant. Or trying to. I wonder how her supporters would think if she did that? "Yay! Hillary will save the country!"

Blehh...

Some "liberal" called me a conspiracy theorist on Facebook for saying the clown car was about getting a second vote at the convention so they could insert Herself. Clapping

Bill, at least, has some interesting insights and some people skills. Hillary has neither.

Influence peddling pays.

Then again, it's in her home. So, no crowd is expected. Have they sold out her living room yet, or will they have to change the venue to the breakfast nook?

that even though the Clintons have lost a lot of influence on the world stage, they still control the Democratic party. As long as they have control, they will get the big bucks for blathering on about nothing to the big donor class.

I read it that they would pay ME $50,000 to hear Hillary give a speech. Still, I'd need more time to think it over.

I believe and truly hope that Hillary Clinton, who generates votes for Trump with every public appearance. But it's really irrelevant. If she's not on the throne someone younger with a better script will be.

Every time Clinton is marched out to say something she has less and less influence. And if one thinks that the Epstein debacle wasn't a mere coincidence of justice finally catching up it functions quite nicely at keeping the Clintons in line.

"Do not rejoice in his defeat, you men. For though the world has stood up and stopped the bastard, the bitch that bore him is in heat again." --Bertold Brecht,

Brecht obviously wasn't calling Clinton a bitch. He was calling fascism the bitch and the Clintons, like the Bushes and too many others, are all in the litter. As unpopular as H. Clinton has become she is merely an employee for a higher power (money, not God).
