Not especially able, compared with Democratic predecessors such as Johnson or even Obama, Hillary Clinton has been unlucky with her own projected legislation — not of course with legislation she voted for, such as the Iraq War or The Patriot Act where others did the heavy lifting; just with stuff she sponsored.
Therefore it will be interesting to see if she can revisit her old failed projects and persuade pet congressthings to introduce the old wine in new bottles. Particularly her darling vision of 2005, The Flag Protection Act, which bombed miserably.
She will be able to work well with the GOP, far more so than Obama and Sanders, neither of whom have her canny neo-liberal instincts for horse-trading and giving away the farm in return for minor concessions, and in these more patriotic modern brutalist times it is difficult to suppose any Republican would reject voting alongside her loyal Democrats to protect Old Glory, compared with those softer gentler times of Bush II.
Outraged and horrified by the insolence of the commons and left-wing communard anarchistic protest, Mrs. Clinton introduced a bill to prevent disrespecting the American Flag, by way of ritual burning etc.; with penalties of a year in jail and individual $100,000 fines — which would be enough to bankrupt any dissident and keep those dirty hippies locked up — it contained a clever little shiv any magistrate could insert to get around free speech concerns: they would merely have to declare that the desecration was a threat to Public Safety [ *Le *Salut Public ] and therefore to be prosecuted.
No one wants to see months of work go down the drain, and this was obviously urgent to her, so can she as president immediately oversee a reintroduction of her past programs to congress ?
Of course the fines would be higher now, with inflation.
