Decades-Long Streak Of High Ambition Is Waning For Clintons

Think of it. There's been a Clinton running for the White House or living in it since 1991.

One quarter of Americans have never known life without a Clinton having the presidency or trying to get it.

Millions have gone from diapers to diplomas in the time of the Clintons.

Even in defeat, Hillary Clinton would make history by being the first woman to have a real shot at the White House, exceeded only by Barack Obama, who's got a real shot of becoming the first black president.

In 2001, right wingers celebrated the end of Bill Clinton's presidency, dining on filet mignon, salmon and sour grapes at a Washington Hotel. But their celebration was to be short-lived. Hillary Clinton achieved the Senate seat in New York, won re-election and began her own try for the White House. She'll remain a key player in the Washington scene, even if she fails to become president.

    A dynasty is a succession of rulers who belong to the same family for generations... A monarchy, from the Greek μονος, "one," and αρχειν, "to rule," is a form of government in which a monarch, usually a single person, is the head of state. Monarchy is when a king, queen, or emperor that rule the country. Monarchy is one of the oldest types of government and has been in continuous existence for most of recorded history. Our founding fathers must be rolling over in their graves right about now.
