Hillary Clinton will re-launch her campaign on Roosevelt Island in Manhattan (used to be known as “Welfare Island,” I kid you not) later this month, and she’s already demonstrating that you can’t make a “for the children” omelette without breaking a few hearts:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign didn’t pick the best time to stage a major campaign rally at Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island later this month.

According to the park’s website, a specially planned event for tots called Imagination Playground — which features unique blue building blocks — has been canceled to accommodate the Democratic frontrunner for president.

Also at risk of major inconvenience: an annual celebration called Roosevelt Island Day, which features a blood drive, hot dog stands and free rides for kids.

It’s for your own good, kids, so just shut up and keep hammering the server.

The children can have the park back that day if they can figure out how to raise $100,000 for the Clinton Foundation by the end of the week.

Update:

Now Hillary’s actually “joking” about how secure her homebrew server was compared to the White House. Those who consider it a privileged to be mocked by a Clinton will still gladly vote for her.

    The kids can go to the end of the line.

    Bill was hoping for The Bikini Car Wash Company but all that showed up were some needy beggars. Yawn… Isn't this more of a re-boot than re-launch? It's what I usually do when something crashes.

    I guess where I'm struggling w/ a lot of our Hillarynoia is; unless there's a radical shift in the House & Senate during the next cycle ( which even Dim operatives concede unlikely, what can she really do?

    We all realize these last [Residential] elections have been all about inflating the importance of the Exec. Branch, and who knows, we just MIGHT fail as a country? But there seems little appetite for consecutive Not An Imperial Prezuhduncies.

    Unless at some point ( precisely as Marcos did in the Philippines by outright DISSOLVING their 'Senate' ) wouldn't hers be more a victory lap than an actual administration? IMHO

    I will disagree on one point Marsh – Obama's election was based on a popularity contest because he was being crowned the first black president and considered cool by the 18-30 yr. olds. He got almost 99% of the black vote and 99% of the 60's/70's hippie, socialist crowd. Now comes Shillary and it is the same thing – the first woman president – all based on the "American Idol" popularity concept that put Obozo in office. Many youngsters have no idea who she is but the media will enlighten them about how she is entitled to the position just because she is a woman. We no longer have a 4th estate protecting us from the crooks who run for office. The 4th estate is now their PR firm.

    I'd never argue the pop-contest, nor The Boomer Factor. Whether you're talking about the [actual] 1960's & 1970's or PEOPLE now in their 60's or 70's! Funny it just worked out that way lol.

    Where I think that momentum grinds to a halt is there simply aren't the ( real or imagined ) economic meltdown factors in play that drove weak minded ( as well as financially STRAPPED 20-somethings/Aging Boomers ) His way in droves?

    There's so many permanently ushered out of the workforce, she can't woo them w/ another 99 Weeks Of Unemployment. They haven't worked since '08. Natch there'll always be ample stock of LIV's to exploit, but they've mostly dealt w/ their New Normal Realities. They have no 'height' from which to fall.

    On January 22, 2012, French presidential candidate François Hollande shook up the banks: “It has no name, no face, no party, it will never be candidate, it will therefore never be elected, yet it governs: that enemy is the world of finance,” he said. It “freed itself from all rules” and “took control of the economy, of society, and even our lives.” He’d fight it, he said, and promised some tough reforms.
