About to the same degree that an H. Clinton presidency will be - i.e. not even as good as Obama's. And there aren't even straws long enough to reach the surface as it is.

Are you sure that you don't suffer cynicism poisoning? You really think that every non idiot politician at 74 years will have his employment prospects at 80 as his highest priority?
Because that sounds silly to me.

No, I'm quite sure I don't suffer cynicism poisoning.  He'd, in the scenario in which he managed to win the primary and then the general, have such prospects.

Is there an element of "I'm not running for re-election, so I'll do what I want"?  Sure.  But that's not generally the case, and it isn't present here.
