Hillary, beware the word ‘invincible’

SHARE Hillary, beware the word ‘invincible’

The shoe that came sailing toward Hillary Clinton in Las Vegas Thursday was a gentle precursor to the battle the former First Lady-U.S. Senator-Secretary of State and Park Ridge native faces if and when she finally announces a presidential run.

Yes, she bobbed and weaved like a pro as the missile zoomed past her head. She even joked about it.

Speaking to a packed ballroom of Scrap Recycling Industries — an interesting venue — she quipped, “My goodness, I didn’t know that solid waste management was so controversial.”

Actually, it can be.

But the larger point here is that Hillary, The Inevitable, must constantly up her game.

Surely she learned in 2008 that inevitability was not her friend.
