Hillary Clinton has never come to terms with why or how she lost the presidency. The former Secretary of State has decried all sorts of reasons in her head about who and what is to blame for her epic loss. But after last week, I think it is safe to say, that her everlasting legacy of 2016 will be the loss of the Supreme Court for generations.
If you’re a Democrat, it must be hard to face the reality that the highest court in the land is out of your grasp now. There is nothing you can do about it. The court is lost to your worldview. President Trump’s transformative presidency has turned the court towards the right ideologically for thirty or forty years. If you are from the left and care about such a thing, it is hopeless; your side lost.
We are told over and over again that elections have consequences. Well, an argument can be made that the most consequential result of the 2016 presidential election, from the viewpoint of the left, is the loss of the Supreme Court. That is an albatross that will hang around the neck of Mrs. Clinton to well after her death. Her entitlement mentality during the election and how she didn’t even go to important states to speak to people, came with a devastating cost if you’re a Democrat; you lost the Supreme Court.
The rippling effect from the 2016 election still has waves to it. If you are a Democrat, then the results of that election are still hitting you in a negative way, and now due to the court, it will ripple through time for decades. In the end, there is one person to blame. In the end, Hillary Clinton owns this crushing defeat and the left will never be able to escape that reality. Obama destroyed the Democrat Party with over a thousand losses of seats from local, state to federal under his watch and Clinton lost the Supreme Court. When will the left see the damage those two individuals did to everything they believe in? I’ll tell you who won’t miss it, the historians, the people who write history will see this era as clear as day, even if Mrs. Clinton’s pride is unable.
