What? Aide Says Bill Clinton Will Not Campaign For Hillary In 2015; Will Concentrate on His Private Graft at the Foundation for Clintons

Very strange.

The Hill:

President Clinton will not hit the campaign trail for Hillary Clinton in 2015, aides told The Washington Post, keeping in line with his promise to be a "backstage adviser" to her White House run.

"He's completely focused right now on the foundation," Tina Flournoy, President Clinton’s chief of staff, told the paper.

"That does not mean that he does not realize his wife is running for president. But he is not directly engaged in the campaign. As he has said before, if his advice is asked for, he’s happy to give it."

My guess is this: Hillary is an extremely narcissistic and incompetent woman who, being a deluded, zealous feminist, wants to believe She Can Do This Without Her Husband, but in fact she's never done anything without the help of her husband.

So she tells him to take time off from campaigning for the easy part, the primary, while reserving the right to call in Her Man to Help Her during the general.

Another possibility is that the Clintons are trying to keep the Hillary Campaign, and the 10 years of huge graft at the Foundation for Clintons, sealed off from each other entirely; so Hillary will not answer questions about the Foundation for Clintons, and Bill will answer questions about the Foundation for Clintons (dishonestly and deflectively, but he will deign to answer), but won't talk about Hillary's campaign.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton, who has never actually achieved anything, merely held a series of impressive-sounding titles, most of which she got through her husband, continues to hide from the press and public, basically campaigning by not campaigning.

In this, Hillary relentlessly focuses on doing the one and only thing she's ever been provably good at: Nothing.

Perhaps Hillary Clinton knows that by showing her face she might hurt her chances to be elected the next president of the United States.

Yes, this is completely unprecedented. And weirdly enough, both Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton have given interviews. But Hillary hasn't. Which is just bizarre. Has a candidate's spouse ever given an interview before the actual presidential candidate? I have not found another historical example of this.

But the truth is, Hillary Clinton is nothing if not calculating. Her internal polls must be suggesting this is a strategy worth pursuing. Clinton must believe her numbers will get worse if she dares to try to deal with the press or interact with those she calls Everyday Americans. Clinton's polls must show that her presidential prospects increase the less Americans see her.

Is running an invisible campaign a sustainable campaign strategy?
