Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Glenn Greenwald's thoughts on a possible Hillary Clinton presidential run, in today's Politico:

"She's a f***ing hawk and like a neocon, practically," he said. "She's surrounded by all these sleazy money types who are just corrupting everything everywhere. But she's going to be the first female president, and women in America are going to be completely invested in her candidacy."

Ok, I agree, Hillary Clinton is like a neo-con, and she is obviously a hawk too. What other highlights we got here:

Greenwald also said that opposition to a possible Clinton 2016 candidacy "is going to be depicted as misogynistic, like opposition to [President Barack] Obama has been depicted as racist."

"It's going to be this completely symbolic messaging that's going to overshadow the fact that she'll do nothing but continue everything in pursuit of her own power," he said, suggesting that should she win, that will perpetuate America's "own de facto monarchy."
