Its Time for Hillary Clinton to Gracefully Bow Out of Public Life, Along with All Other Women

You wonít find a bigger supporter of Hillary Clinton than me. Sure, I stumped for Barack Obama in 2008, and for Bernie Sanders during the 2016 primary, but I have always been steadfast in my belief that Hillary Rodham Clinton had the judgment and experience to be Commander-in-Chief of the United States (unless there were some technical way in which Bernie Sanders could still pull it off).

So it is as one of Clintonís biggest supporters that I say to her now: your work here is done. It is time for Hillary Clinton to disappear from our magazine covers and our television screens, and gracefully retire from public life. Ideally, taking all other women with her.

This is about moving forward, and how are we supposed to do that when weíre hamstrung by symbols of past failures, like Hillary Clinton, or Geraldine from human resources, who makes a federal case out of every bad joke around the water cooler? Letís save the investigating for private e-mail servers, O.K., Geraldine? There are still a lot of unanswered questions there.

The Trump Presidency isnít a slow-motion car crash. Itís happening at light speed, every day. How are we supposed to combat this existential threat when weíre constantly interrupted by the rejected message of a previous candidate? And how am I supposed to formulate my thoughts when my wife is constantly interrupting to ask what Iím thinking? Itís a political Catch-22 that can only be reconciled by Hillary returning to the Chappaqua woods, along with my wife, and her friend Sarah with the weird laugh, who apparently doesnít have her own apartment where she can watch ďThe Good Fight.Ē

10. Funny, but

the sad thing is, it's not much of an exaggeration for some people. Including some so-called "progressives."

Great satire, though.
