Foreshadowing Hillary's Fate?

Fillies don't usually win horse races running against colts.  And women have never won a presidential election running against men.  But this year Hillary Clinton is trying to win the presidency and Eight Belles tried to win the Kentucky Derby.  Unfortunately for the horse, she finished second, broke down and had to be euthanized after the race.

According to Jake Tapper, blogging on, Hillary was an Eight Belles fan who suggested that everybody bet on her.  She even sent daughter Chelsea to the track with instructions to do so.

Let's hope that Hillary follows her favorite horse's path - but only partway.  Here's to Hillary coming in second.  After losing the election, she may break down and cry but there's no call for euthanasia.
