Hypocrisy. 

As you probably have heard, Hillary has changed her mind and is now opting not to debate Bernie Sander ahead of the California primary. The event was to be held by Fox News, sometime between now and June 7th. Fox is none too pleased, and they issued the following statement:

“Naturally, Fox News is disappointed that Secretary Clinton has declined our debate invitation, especially given that the race is still contested and she had previously agreed to a final debate before the California primary.”

Frankly, this isn't particularly surprising.  Thanks to their rigged primary system, the DNC has chosen Hillary Clinton and -as she likes to say - the primaries are all but over.  She has no need for another debate, and she'd probably only embarrass herself if she was exposed to any difficult questions. She's doing the smart thing politically.

However, there will be those who disagree with that take.

Some people, like, oh... I don't know... 2008 Hillary Clinton think that you should "be willing to debate anytime, anywhere."  After all, it is the “most important job in the world,” you know.

Yep. That's the word from uber-hypocrite Hillary Clinton who, at the time, was getting hammered by a young upstart named Barack Obama.  She apparently felt that one last debate before the California primary would reverse her fortunes. More importantly, she had a heartfelt belief that debate was an important element of the Democratic process - which she holds so, so, sacred.

Now? Not so much.

These days it seems "campaigning for every vote" is for losers like Bernie Sanders.
