Now we have Hillary’s confession, an off-handed but rather telling remark, and it’s not exactly presidential in scope. This sort of comment is not made by a person who expects to win, and belies any sense of confidence. At the same time, working in a diner might educate her about the importance of tips.
Ultimately, while I do not want the Clintons near the White House ever again, I do find it difficult not to feel sorry for her.
I can always get a job in a diner, says Hillary
Hillary Clinton joked yesterday that if her bid for the White House failed she could always work in a diner.
The former First Lady may have been speaking in jest, but her remarks betray an awareness that she may lose one of the potentially decisive primary elections in Ohio and Texas next Tuesday. During a campaign stop at the Bob Evans restaurant in Rio Grande, Ohio, Mrs Clinton shook hands with kitchen staff and then stood behind the counter to pose for pictures.
“I am just going to take a few orders here,” she smiled, adding: “In case this other endeavour doesn’t work out I can come back to Bob Evans.”
Diana Lemaster, a waitress photographed with Mrs Clinton, said: “She would be welcome working here any time. She was very, very nice.”
Believe me, this is not the sort of exchange Obama is having with diner owners, or anyone else, for that matter.
