Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Glenn Greenwald's thoughts on a possible Hillary Clinton presidential run, in today's Politico:

“She’s a f***ing hawk and like a neocon, practically,” he said. “She’s surrounded by all these sleazy money types who are just corrupting everything everywhere. But she’s going to be the first female president, and women in America are going to be completely invested in her candidacy.”
Ok, I agree, Hillary Clinton is like a neo-con, and she is obviously a hawk too. What other highlights we got here:
Greenwald also said that opposition to a possible Clinton 2016 candidacy “is going to be depicted as misogynistic, like opposition to [President Barack] Obama has been depicted as racist.”

“It’s going to be this completely symbolic messaging that’s going to overshadow the fact that she’ll do nothing but continue everything in pursuit of her own power,” he said, suggesting that should she win, that will perpetuate America’s “own de facto monarchy.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
